La Marca 73: mobile home test – How To Cars
We looked at the longest model (7.40 meters) with a queen-size bed in the rear. Despite extensive standard equipment, there is of course also the possibility of individualisation. These include, for example, an electric pull-down bed (1970 euros) and a seating area that can be converted into a bed (430 euros).
Strength of La Marca: the spacious room layout
That’s him: Not only the longest, but also the most spacious mobile home from La Marca. This is noticeable as soon as you enter the bright, friendly interior. An airy and spacious room layout is one of the strengths of La Marca, that much is immediately clear. The white furniture fronts and the indirect light reinforce the effect of the spacious interior. The dining table in the classic L-shaped dinette can be moved, which in turn makes access to the driver’s cab much easier.
The small bench next to the driver’s door proves to be a practical place to sit, for example to put on your shoes, or as a leg rest when relaxing in the evening. However, the question may be asked as to how long the leather upholstery in the test car remains so brilliantly white with intensive use.
Privacy: sleeping area and bathroom can be separated
He has: Storage ideas that inspire. The rear part of the queen-size bed can be easily folded up using gas pressure springs and opens up easy access to the storage compartments and drawers hidden under the mattress. The bottom compartment for shoes in front of the foot end is also clever and very practical in everyday use. The queen-size bed itself (1.90 x 1.40 meters) is also impressive. Getting into bed is very easy. Also because the toilet and washroom are opposite each other.
Compared to the spacious interior, the washroom with toilet seems a bit cramped. But he scores with a towel rail directly in front of the sink. For more privacy, the sleeping area and bathroom can be separated from the living area with kitchen using a sliding door.
Also well thought out: The television is located in the upper storage compartment above the refrigerator. This has three advantages. First, this storage protects against damage while driving. Secondly, when not in use, the black screen does not spoil the aesthetic appearance, and thirdly, you can watch TV both from the seating area and from the bed. Practical: There is no lack of storage compartments or drawers in the interior. Also successful is the medium-sized and heated rear garagewhich was equipped with a 230 V socket, checker plate floor and rails with lashing eyes.
Attention: The rear overhang requires your full attention
