Overall
It is a brilliant little van, which should prove popular with those with medium sized cars, and those who would prefer not to tow huge caravans.
Space & Practicality
For such a little van, the layout is amazing. The L-shaped seating makes it look roomy, the centre kitchen works well with an extra flip-up worktop at the end. The wash room needs to be compact, but has both a cassette loo and a shower area within, although a 20-stone rugby player might struggle. It has both hot and cold water.
Quality & Reliability
Everything appears to be well built and we have had no problems during its first three years.
Equipment & Comfort
For a so-called entry-level caravan this is an absolute peach with everything (four berths, three-burner hob, oven, large fridge, wash room with shower, separate dinette) needed for a stay of any length. Oay, the washroom is compact, but is roomy enough to take a shower in. The finish is amazing with four reading lamps plus two mains lights. The 'van is compact on the road and easy to tow with a car of 1600cc diesel. Inside the 'van is light and bright, with a roof light above the bunk bed and a Heki roof light above the lounge. The cushions are thick and comfy by day or by night. There is plenty of storage space. We are delighted with our purchase and would recommend for a couple, and we will be taking our daughter and grandson on occasion when we all have room to sleep indoors.
Value for Money
Our caravan came with the SE pack which added a door fly-screen and fitted loose-fit carpet set, plus a Winterhoff stabiliser. We think that it represents very good value for money, and being the lightest four-berth caravan available new, should be popular.

Our Top Touring Apps To Help Holidaying

What phone apps are worth looking at?

It was not that long ago that the A to Z was the travelling man's, and woman's, best friend. For years this helped motorists and holiday makers across the UK get from A to B with ease, provided you had a good map reading co-pilot and an update map. Years on it seems technology has made the map book look like a relic. As technology rolls on we take a look at some apps that may just change the way you holiday.

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Caravan Cafe

The mobile cafe is here to help you get your tea and cake fix

The old traditional caravan nowadays is most likely spotted sat on driveways covered in weather ware or just plonked depressingly in fields throughout the country. One special care giver has stumbled upon a very rare vintage van and has decided to turn it into something worthwhile to help out our aging community

Motorhome Hire Franchise Launch And Expansion

Hire franchise plan to change the rental market in the UK

The market for new and second hand leisure vehicles keeps growing and growing as more UK residents are opting to choose a caravan for the next holiday. Another sector within the industry that is seeing a real boom is the leisure vehicle rental market. At last month's NEC Motorhome and Caravan Show the UK's first nationwide motorhome franchise business was launched.

Caravan Review - The Airstream Colorado

Living the dream in the American Airstream

The all American touring icon has been available for purchase from main dealers in the UK for just over a year or so now. Since Airstream's launch in the UK I have not seen a huge amount on the highways of caravan parks across the UK. There may be quite a few reasons for this, most of which have nothing to do with the quality of design build but more to do with how the UK consumer sees the larger red white and blue towing caravan.
