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.
