Innovations for 2017

For the new season the Xplore range has seen the introduction of the four-berth 554 model.

The 554 features a retractable transverse fixed island bed and rear bathroom, as well as a spacious end-bathroom/dressing area and bright, airy lounge.

The compact camper offers a lightweight solution for all your caravanning needs at a maximum technically permissible laden mass of 1350kgs.

The Xplore 554 will feature alongside additional models including the 304, 526, 574 and 586 but two models, namely the 402 and 235, have been dropped for 2017.

As with previous models, all Xplores announced for the new season will be built on an AL-KO chassis and come with an eight-litre on-board rapid-heat water heater.

However, that is where the similarities for 2017 stop and a host of new features await, including 4kW underfloor space heater (2kW on the 304); kitchen splashback; locker door gasket; soft-close wardrobe hinges and 'boutique' bathroom vanity unit.

Prices for the 2017 Xplore range start at £13,344 on the road.

Innovation for 2016

The Elddis Xplore is renowned as one of the lightest, smallest and most affordable caravans on the market - and 2016 is no different.

Built using SoLiD construction, the Xplore range is ideal for families and couples alike and feature a number of specifications to enable a wonderful time away whatever the weather thanks to the Rapid Heat-up 8 litre Whale heating system and Grade 3 thermal insulation, truly making it a range for all seasons.

Six layouts are available for 2016, all of which benefit from new 'Marone' craftsman built cabinetry and 'Cosimo' upholstery providing an updated look. Contrasting 'Fantasie brushed' flush-lit kitchen units and granite effect deep worktops in Mineral Creme allow for a kitchen experience similar to that in the home.

Owing to the light weight, the Xplore is extremely easy to tow, virtually by any car, and its price offers an alternative to those looking to buy a secondhand caravan.
