Innovations for 2017

This year sees the Crusader Supersirocco bow out as five models remain, namely the Mistral, Aurora, Storm, Tempest and Supercyclone.

A total of six models have been made available as another is added to the fleet, the six-berth Zephyr.

The Zephyr, a twin-axle caravan oozing five-star luxury, comes complete with a retractable transverse fixed bed at the rear and spacious living room at the front, separated by a luxurious washroom and shower room.

It is possible to section off the rear bedroom, as well as the living area up front, to provide for more privacy too.

The front panel on all Crusaders within the range has updated for 2017, including new front windows, new gas locker door, and new front grab handles.

Meanwhile, a new rooflight comes as standard across all models to allow for an abundance of light to enter the caravan during the day.

Additional highlights include: 'Nagoya' wallboard; contrast kitchen units; kitchen drawer handles with positive locking; quiet-close locker hinges; soft close wardrobe hinges and modern bathroom sink.

Weights start at 1526kgs MTPLM, with prices starting at £23,894 On the Road

Innovations for 2016

Featuring a total of six layouts for 2016, including the new Elddis Crusader provides those looking for a luxurious getaway exactly that.

From the sporty, head-turning exterior to the impressive and lavish interior, each Crusader is built upon high strength one piece aluminium sides in a new 'Champagne' colour scheme whilst, inside, new Aquaclean 'Vinci' upholstery featuring Ozio hi-performance construction complement the 'Marone' craftsman built cabinetry with 'Ash Prato' feature strips.

When it comes to saving space, the retractable bed featured on the Mistral, Aurora and Storm models allow for an additional 400mm of floor space, and an abundance of light comes courtesy of the panoramic Sky-Scape. Light will be the only thing getting in though, with Aero Privacy flush-lit double-glazed side windows with night ventilation position ensuring privacy.

An exclusive EcoCamel Orbit water saving Halo shower head which uses Aircore technology, should enable you to feel right at home and, inside the kitchen, 'Fantasie Brushed' kitchen units completes the look.
