Make & Model

Year
2010
Overall
We were delighted when we first bought this van but have been disappointed with the after service and will not purchase another van from Eldis.
Space & Practicality
We like a fixed bed layout although it leaves a very tight toilet and shower. The large single front window has already been damaged and required repair. I would avoid in single front pane in the future.
Quality & Reliability
The heat from the gas fire has wrinkled the finish directly above it. Not attractive but only a cosmetic problem so we weren't too concerned. However, when we had severe water ingress and required work to be done under warranty, Elddis were less than helpful. The staff in the customer care centre are rude and it seems that unless you comply with the warranty small print to the letter, you are likely to end up with a bill for some if not all of the repairs. Secondhand buyer beware. If you don't pay to register the warranty in your name it may be void.
Equipment & Comfort
Chose this van for the fixed bed layout. The mattress is on the thin side and although we are average size and weight we tend to roll into the middle.
Value for Money

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.
