Horizon Motorhomes will debut a new model for the first time in four years at the Brisbane Caravan and Camping Super Show.

Based on its best seller, the Melaleuca, the company said it is in response to demand for compact and affordable motorhomes.

Horizon said the Melaleuca Appeal’s design concept was streamlined after customer feedback revealed functionality was a priority ahead of optional extras. The result is a motorhome built into the Fiat 2.3 Ducato long wheel base just under six metres long, able to be parked legally in most car spaces.

It features a redesigned galley with more bench space and drawers,  a toilet/shower that sits beside the fridge and wardrobe, and a hatch under the rear seating area for oversize surfboards or fishing rods in the boot. Rear full length beds can be permanently made as two singles, one king single or a king double. The rear compartment can also be set up as a dining room for four people.

"In the last few years customers have been telling us that ‘less is more’", Horizon sales team leader John Armstrong said.

"There are so many benefits to having a compact motorhome like fuel economy, better back road access, camping spontaneity and ‘sneaking-a-sleep’ in overnight parking."

Upgrades and customisation can be done at at any time, as the base model set up includes wiring and outlets for modifications.

The Horizon Melaleuca Appeal will make its debut at the Brisbane Caravan and Camping Super Show June 7-12.
