Innovations for 2017

Elddis's original 8ft wide range, the Buccaneer, returns for 2017 but gone is the Cutter model, which sees itself replaced with two new vehicles.

The two new models, namely the Commodore and Galera, have been introduced for the new season joining the Clipper, Schooner, and Cruiser.

While maintaining its size across the range, the Buccaneer has seen changes made to the the front by way of a new panel, new windows and new gas locker door.

Meanwhile, a new wraparound lounge design comes as standard, as does Elddis's new 'Stargazer' rooflight and diamond silver aluminium sides.

Other new features include a sparkle-effect illuminated acrylic kitchen splashback, additional USB port and quiet close hinges.

'Amaya' aquaclean upholstery is introduced for the new season, alongside a 'Lavinia' furniture colour.

Weights start at 1,943kgs and prices at £23,894 on the road.

Innovations for 2016

As sister brand of Elddis, the Buccaneer range is known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to luxury and 2016 is no different.

Featuring five layouts, including the new four-berth Clipper, the Buccaneer is no average caravan - at 8ft wide, and being one of the most opulent caravans on the market, how can it be?

The sheer size of the Buccaneer enables a plethora of space throughout, allowing for a number of unique layouts which would otherwise be impossible to implement.

Specification is also second to none and, for 2016, the Buccaneer features a one-piece exterior door and one-piece GRP sides in silver.

Inside, new lexington upholstery featuring Ozio hi-performance construction creates a light and airy feel, enhanced by the amount of light created by the 'Sky Scape' panoramic sunroof with LED ambient lighting.

Elsewhere, a retractable bed inside the Cutter, Cruiser, Caravel and Clipper creates even more space.

Truly a caravan for all seasons, the Buccaneer features Alde 24 hour programmable central heating and water heating, as well as a 100w Truma roof mounted solar panel.

The range also features a remote-controlled hydraulic self-levelling system allowing for an easy pitch wherever you are.
