The Auto Trader expert verdict: ★★★★★ ★★★★★ 4.5
The Adamo range for 2021 is the first partnership between Ford and a front-runner in motorhome innovation, Bailey. But it's so much more when it comes to practical living on-pitch.
The 75-4I in particular is one for the real adventurers that still want to relax in comfort when it's time to rest and recover. With garage space for accessories and activity lovers, along with additional bike rack functionality on the back as standard, it's the perfect mix of home from home convenience, should you want to really get moving on holiday.
Reasons to buy
- The huge rear garage.
- Bed brilliance, from the fixed island and drop down double.
- Great for dog owners.
At a glance
First collaboration between Bailey and Ford, with all models in the range featuring an auto gearbox with 160bhp to pull your motorhome. Cruise control, air con and a reversing camera all come as standard, and an optional extra is the touchscreen double-DIN headunit that brings the latest in driving tech convenience.
Built on a Ford Transit cab and chassis, this island bed layout hides a lot more design features than you'd ever imagine as you look at it from the outside. You'll find a spacious lounge to the front, with the kitchen and separate shower and toilet to the centre, leading to the island double bed behind. But it's storage where this motorhome really shines.
At the rear of the Adamo is well-lit garage space that's a lifesaver for active motorhomers. Storing big, bulky items and accessories (even a full-sized bike), as well as wet or muddy kit, away from the living area only adds further comfort in an already impressive interior.
There's both a three-pin domestic and a 12v plug in there for charging, too, meaning that it's not just a big cupboard, but a practical space for storage and sorting your equipment out on the move. There are even drainage points, hanging space and a heater for drying clothing out conveniently. It's perfect for pet owners as well.
Darker grey detailing complements the exterior finish in the living space as well, giving it a look of luxury that's backed by the Bailey's ‘Odyssey’ soft furnishings, scatter cushions and upholstery.
Revolving captain seats increase the options for entertaining in the front lounge. When you're on the move, the additional wide travel seats pop up from either side under each settee.
If the garage space to the rear wasn't already impressive and efficient enough for your needs, you're in for another treat. You can also access the compartment from the living area, too. This means that if there's anything you've forgotten about, or if you need to check up on either your personal items or pets, you don't have to venture out and brave the elements.
The kitchen is stylish and spacious, with a three-hob burner and electric hot plate, grill and oven. The huge 136-litre Thetford fridge / freezer will suit even the most enthusiastic of chef's needs, while you can pick between additional storage space or an optional extra fitted microwave above the worktop space.
When it comes to feeding time, as well as options for eating anywhere from the two sofas and front seats in the cab, there's something special about the Adamo's pedestal dining table, too. It doubles in size with the flip of a hinge, but that's not all. It also spins 360-degrees; it slides from side to side, and it raises or lowers on an electric motor. If you can't find comfort in eating here then you've got some interesting questions to ask yourself.
As the I in the name suggests, the 75-4I has an already-large island double bed at the back, but the clever touch is that it can be pulled forward when you don't need to walk around it during the day in order to extend the length even further.
The drop-down double bed at the front of the motorhome is on a fully-electric motor that evolves through convenience to comfort at the push of a button. The front settees can also be made up into a bed with an optional bed pack, but when you've got the ability for decadence descending with such ease, there's really no question as to which you'd choose. The good thing about the bed pack below is that, should you need it, you can create double bunk beds in no time at all.
Value for money
It's a range that's named named after the latin word meaning to fall in love with or admire greatly, and it's easy to see why. Whether you fall for the motorhome's design itself, or what it enables you to do while you're away, at under £60k OTR the Adamo 75-4I is giving a lot to make it live up to its name.
With luxury throughout as well as incredibly practical performance and storage features that suit absolutely any lifestyle, this is a motorhome that offers more than just a holiday away. It can open up opportunities for a level of living that's unheard of in many British-built motorhomes.
One final thing, true comfort comes from the 75-4I's Truma Combi boilers combined with Bailey's insulation that's been tried and tested in the harshest of conditions such as a trip to the Arctic circle. This is an evolved motorhome design that's backing up all of its promises.
