Regent Weekender Test Review
The Regent Weekender, the perfect addition to your next 'weekend' trip away.
The Regent Weekender is an aptly named van. While it’s certainly suitable for long-term touring, some users will find it better for shorter trips because of the slightly compressed layout. Most of the compression has occurred in the dinette and kitchen, so it just depends on how you like to travel. None of this means the layout is awkward or difficult – in fact, it’s just the opposite.
Two additional features make the Weekender a very attractive proposition: one is the weight, or lack thereof; and the other is always that final bottom line, the price.
Light and bright interior
Weight factor and load capacity
Wide choice of tow vehicles.
Relatively good storage space
I would have liked...
An extra rub of sandpaper inside the
cupboard edges – they were a bit rough
A few more double powerpoints (instead of all singles)
Easier access to under-seat areas
Reading lights for dinette
