Built in France, Caravelair produce these popular, lightweight caravans for the European market. Distributed in the UK by Marquis, these ultra light, value for money caravans are suited to families and newcomers to caravanning.

The series comprises of four ranges, the Antares Luxe, Ambiance Style, Venicia and Eden Speciale. Each model is certified by the National Caravan Council for compliance with strict European standards and industry set codes of practice relating to health and safety issues from fire safety, weights and dimensions to gas, electrics and ventilation.

Antares Luxe

The entry level Caravelair Antares Luxe caravans are light, functional and easy to tow. As good basic caravans designed for family touring, the current range has eight models ranging in size between three and six berth layouts that come with a choice of four interior furnishing schemes. Because these caravans have a limited range of 'luxury' fixtures and fittings, even the longest 546 model which stands at 7.06m, manages to keep its MTPLM weight down to 1,500kg.

Ambiance/ Ambiance Style

With a whopping fourteen floorplans, the Ambiance Style range should have a layout to suit most needs, there's even a rarely seen seven bed model. Again, there's a choice of 4 soft furnishing schemes, and a TV antenna and mast along with a blown air heating system can be fitted as cost options.

The 470 model has a flexible curved end seating area which easily converts to a double bed. Thoughtful design features include an awning light and exterior storage access, which give these caravans a more refined feel without adding to the overall weight. A kitchen hood/extractor fan and microwave can be added as cost options.

The caravans are fitted with heavy duty corner steadies, shock absorbers and AL-KO safety coupling for stability on and off the road. A skylight gives a sense of capaciousness that is reinforced by the two modern soft furnishing options in either maroon or beige tones. The GRP panels and roof are finished with stylish graphics and the nose end sports the eponymous Caravelair logo. Factory fitted air conditioning and alloy wheels are available as cost options.
