Damon Avanti 3106

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

The first thing you might notice about the Avanti front-diesel Class A from Damon Motor Coach is that it doesn’t look like most motorhomes on the
highway. The Avanti‘s sloping front cap is sleek with a one-piece wraparound
windshield, the name “Avanti” is inlaid in silver above the aluminum grille and the coach
sports an angled cat’s-eye-like headlight array.

It’s all very eye catching. But there’s
more that sets the Avanti apart from many other Class A‘s: it’s size.

The 31-foot, 10-inch Avanti is equipped with a 200-hp International MaxxForce 5 V-6 diesel
engine that turned in fuel economy figures up to 14.4 mpg.


The automotive cockpit is
equipped with a color monitor and controls the three-camera backup system, the living
area’s air conditioner and 5.1 surround-sound DVD/home-theater system. A spring-assisted
queen-size bed drops down from the ceiling above the cockpit with access via a small ladder that stores in an open compartment in the ceiling.

Several radius cherry cabinets are located in Avanti‘s midsection and L-shaped kitchen. Kitchen drawers slide easily on ball-bearing guides.

The U-shaped leather-style dinette opposite the curbside entry doorway is situated in the Avanti‘s single slide-out. The dinette is equipped with a flip-top extension that allows for extra seating.

The bath contains a stainless-steel sink, curved medicine cabinet and more storage. A shower is across the aisle on the driver’s side of the coach in a separate compartment.

In the bedroom, two lighted steps lead to the hinged north-south queen bed with storage beneath. There are more radius cabinets over the bed and a small wardrobe sits on top of a passenger-side nightstand. For entertainment, a 17-inch LCD TV that operates on 12-volt DC flips down from the ceiling.

With its luxurious interior, European-inspired design and plenty of storage, the Avanti is leading the field in a new wave of smaller Class As.
