The Flash uses Ford’s excellent 113bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine with 228 lb/ft of torque. In the cab, it has twin airbags as standard. Also standard is cruise control, a radio/CD player and electric mirrors.
The Chausson allows for up to five loungers. Its designers have included an extendable table, which uses a slide-out, spring-loaded mechanism, more commonly found on costlier models. You simply reach under the table, pull out the extension and raise it into place. It increases the table’s length from 108.5cm to 147cm.
The fixed double bed is big and comfortable, and features an innovative design, cleverly rising and falling. Using its ‘Easybed’ system you crank a mechanism in the garage to adjust the height of the bed: a higher bed means increased storage space and a lower bed means more headroom.
The Chausson Flash 04 also features a large garage at the rear which is excellent for your storage needs.
