I have no knowledge of the model or layout but when I have been looking the Chausson brand always seemed well put together and def not a budget brand.

Just remember with all motorhomes, check for damp or even get camper medic to give it a once over before purchase, money well spent

There are a nice M/H Jason, I looked at one myself when I was changing, the only thing I was concerned about, was the weight at 3400kg, was there enough payload.?

Ive had very bad experience with the 2.2 engine that this sounds like. In a citroen and a ford. If it is the Hdi common rail injector version id stay well clear. Both had premature injector failure on an 03 citroen and an 04 ford and both cases needed new engine (sounds very unluck I know - one was on my daily driver and the other a moho and it was 3 years apart. Id do a bit of homework on engine choice over habitation equipment any day, as the latter is easy fixed compared to engine issues.
