In this edition of CaravanTimes Classic Gold we head back to 2013 when our reviewer bought a 2010 Knaus Azur caravan for windsurfing trips to the Dutch islands with her husband. Joyce Pashley was very pleased with her purchase overall, but there were a couple of little niggles along the way.
Let's start with the positives... Ms Pashley loved its modern design and fittings and was impressed with the amount of cupboard space at a moderate price. She found it easy to clean and that the layout suited their needs as a couple.
Without an oven or microwave, our reviewer and her partner took to having barbecues outside the van, which seems to have suited their needs on their annual trips to the Netherlands. They also seemed to have made peace with the fact that the small water tank on board the Knaus Azur meant showering at caravan site facilities instead of in the van.
Among the niggles pointed out by our reviewer were a slight draft under the fixed bed when the weather was cooler, not enough sockets and no full-length mirror. The couple got around these issues with ingenious solutions and ended up reasonably happy with their purchase.
Ms Pashley concluded: "It has been such a pleasure to live in these last two seasons! A pleasure to wake up in and we love the fact that it has two big windows in the bedroom area. We enjoy our first tea or coffee in bed looking out at the day. We love the big lounge area with windows on three sides and the huge roof skylight over the kitchen-lounge."
Did you have a Knaus Azur back in 2010 or any year after? Let us know how you got on with it.
