The Benimar Mileo 202 has seatbelts for four, dining for six, and beds for four. That is pretty impressive in a vehicle that is just 5.99 metres long, 2.3 metres wide and 2.89 metres high. It has a tare weight of 2934 kilograms and GVW of 3500 kilograms.
It has all the bases covered, with a 122-litre freshwater tank, 105-litre greywater tank, and the Thetford 150-litre separate compartment fridge/freezer, usually reserved for much larger more expensive RVs. Stepping inside through the Kiwi-kerbside door, my first impression was like stepping into the Tardis: this was definitely bigger on the inside than it appeared from the outside. The eating, lounging, and entertaining area will indeed accommodate six diners.
The forward-facing dinette seats are the two extra belted seats. The dining table is an all-purpose singing and dancing affair that slides fore and aft, side-to-side, as well as rotating and can be locked in almost any position you desire. It also lowers on its air-cushioned centre pedestal to form the bed base when the dinette is converted for sleeping. With the turn of a key and the press of an adjacent button, the ceiling descends to reveal a fully made-up queen-sized bed. The bed's electric mechanism lowers the bed on hanging straps, similar to seatbelt straps, which support the bed in the lowered position. The system is quick and easy to use and the bed can be put away made up, ready for the next night's use.
The kitchen is as good as any I've seen in an imported RV under eight metres long. It has good usable bench space, tucked away in a quiet corner as it is. There is useful locker space, a big 150-litre fridge/freezer, a full oven with separate grill, and a cooktop with three LPG hobs plus an electric hob.
With hatches in the lounge and kitchen and the panoramic sky-view hatch over the cab, as well as opening windows in the kitchen and lounge it should be an easy RV to keep warm or cool as the seasons demand. Benimar has also embraced LED lighting technology and there is a generous sprinkling of LED lights throughout the Mileo.
The mileage on this vehicle was correct at the time of valuation, however the vehicle remains in use by the Seller until the point it is sold, therefore the mileage at the time of sale may be higher than that advertised.
