Roller Teams T line 590 really is a tardis on wheels, with a large rear washroom, drop down bed and dining for 4 in comfort. Its easy to see why the 590 is the perfect compact motorhome Read More
Roller Team is part of France’s Trigano Group and builds its motorhomes near Poggibonsi in Tuscany. T-Line is the firm’s upmarket offering and, like its sister ranges, serves up Italian design flair and a generous specification in an attractive, affordable package.
The 590 is a sub-6m front lounge/end washroom four-berth based on a low-line Fiat Ducato chassis. The sixth-generation cab looks sharp, and its metallic graphite finish is referenced in the dark-grey side skirts and two-tone decals on the brilliant white sidewalls.
Not all the changes are cosmetic. A new gear-shift indicator will encourage economical driving, while a suite of driving aids – ESC, hill-hold and Traction Plus – is standard. The cab radio is an upgraded Fiat unit with built-in TomTom sat-nav, plus USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
Lounging & dining
The 590 sports a clever layout that makes a lot of the available space, comprising a front lounge, a kitchen split width-ways and an end washroom. The big lounge has seating for six (with the cab seats rotated) around a sliding tabletop. Windows to either side allow in ample natural light, assisted by the panoramic sunroof across the cab. For evenings, there are LED lights in the underside of the drop-down bed.
European manufacturers have to modify their kitchens for the UK market, and Roller Team has made a good effort here. On the offside, a combined oven and grill sits above a 150-litre fridge solution for two people. Opposite there’s the typical L-shaped worktop, here with three gas burners and a sink with a mixer tap. Below is a range of storage options, plus a waste bin – which is welcome because there isn’t one in the habitation door.
The drop-down bed is operated electrically and can be deployed quickly. It can be fully lowered for a couple touring together with no others on board. Alternatively, just have the drop-down bed half-lowered, which allows the lounge table to be dropped and the seating rearranged to provide another double bed. This makes the T-Line 590 a viable option for couples shopping for a compact motorhome with the flexibility of extra berths.
The drop-down bed measures 1.9m x 1.36. The double bed below it is 2.16m x1.25m
The Roller Team T-Line 590’s end washroom will please many prospective purchasers. A shower compartment is on the nearside, while a toilet and wardrobe are opposite. The basin is in between, flanked above and below by storage. Behind the mirror is a shallow cupboard. A half-length wardrobe is mounted next to the swivel-seat toilet.
The T line 590 measures 5.99m in length, 2.35m in width and 2.95m in height
