Elddis Caravans has upgraded its premium Crusader range of luxury caravans for 2013, including extra equipment and an adjusted layout for the popular Tempest family model.

The most significant change for the 2013 Elddis Crusader collection is the addition of dent-resistant GRP sides, which replace the outgoing aluminium construction.

This more insulative material is combined with an upgraded 3KW Alde heating system, all of which should make this a truly cosy caravan, even in the winter months.

Elddis has stuck with the highly popular exterior design, which won them so many fans when it was first unveiled last year, with a sloping front roof and stylish silver front gas lockers.

The interior styling features Noce Prosecco woodgrain for the 24mm thick overhead lockers, while the lighting is 100% LED throughout.

Technology addicts have been well catered for as well, with the inclusion of an Avtex TV as standard and an abundance of power sockets.

Memory foam mattresses ensure a comfortable night's sleep, while the Seitz privacy glass should stop prying eyes from gazing in without reducing the amount of natural light getting into the caravan.

In addition to all the visible changes, Elddis has also made quite a substantial change to the Crusader that you can't see.

The 2013 collection will be the first Elddis Crusader range to be built using the company's new Solid Construction caravan building method.

Elddis claims that this will provide unrivalled levels of strength, lightness and dryness, since the vast majority of the screws and bolts used in the build have been removed and replaced by industrial-grade adhesives.
