Article #4: Rapido 60th Anniversary Editions, coming in 2022

Rapido is bringing out special 60th anniversary models for the 2022 season, all of which will come with an inbuilt vacuum cleaner.

To mark 60 years since founder Constant Rousseau started developing his first caravan in 1961, the new anniversary editions will be available on two low-profiles, the 666F and 696F, and four A-class models, the 8066dF, 8096dF, i66 and i96.

The inbuilt vacuum cleaner will sit under the fridge and can be turned on with the toes. It is designed to come with all accessories needed to clean the whole of the motorhome.

Other features on the anniversary models include exclusive upholstery and, in the A-classes, a more discreetly designed drop-down bed.

The A-classes in Rapido’s sister brand Itineo, meanwhile, get a new front and rear profile. The slightly more curved front profile now includes a matt black grille and matt black branding and a bumper that extends around the headlight and indicator surrounds. The LED daytime running lights have also been repositioned to sit just under the windscreen.

The rear panel, meanwhile, now comes with a black brake light spoiler at the top and boomerang-shaped light clusters. It is also prewired for a reversing camera.
