New caravan range from Trigano to roll into Marquis this September

Marquis has announced the introduction of a fresh and new range heading to its forecourts, the Caravelair.

Manufactured by French leisure industry giants Trigano, and designed exclusively for Marquis to UK specification, the new Antarès 2017 range will be launching at Marquis South Yorkshire on the weekend of 16 to 18 September with some pretty spectacular launch offers coming along for the ride.

Offering a collection of six layouts, many unique to the UK market, the range looks set to offer excellent value in its class with prices starting at £11,995 OTR. Compact, chic, and easy to tow, the lightweight Antarès range will offer a number of choices, including the 5m two berth 335, featuring all of the mod cons a couple could want for touring, and the six/seven berth 496 which caters for the adventurous family. Each model within the range comes with ambient LED lighting, three burner hob with oven/grill, fully equipped bathrooms, alloy wheels, exterior locker access and AL-KO AKS 3400 Stabilisers for safer towing. Furthermore, the Antarès 455 is the only four berth caravan on the market that offers a full squared off fixed bed, giving domestic style comfort in a leisure vehicle. A five year water ingress warranty on all models will give customers peace of mind.

The Caravelair range will be offered by all Marquis caravan branches who will have advised each model will be made available for collection at any of the eleven Marquis branches.

Alan Buckwell, sales director, commented on the new offering saying: "The exciting new range allows a fantastic opportunity for caravanners to buy a new touring vehicle for under £12,000 with a wide variety of models to suit. Marquis are confident that their appeal fills a gap in the UK market and offers great value for money."
