Two new models and loads of updates across the Autoquest range for 2016

Elddis has added two new Autoquest models to its 2016 motorhome lineup.

Priced at £40,949 OTR, the four-berth, low-line Autoquest 185 offers the luxury of two fixed single beds, a luxurious rear bathroom and plentiful space in the lounge at the front just before the cab. Meanwhile, the Autoquest 195, also four-berths and featuring a front dinette, kitchen and bathroom with light rear lounge transforming into a spacious double bedroom is priced at £40,549 OTR.

An additional four models complete the Elddis Autoquest range for 2016. These include the compact two-berth Autoquest 115 and Autoquest 175, as well as the four-berth Autoquest 155 and six-berth Autoquest 180.

It's not just the addition of two models that's new for 2016 though, with the whole range benefiting from a new Whale Duo Control intuitive combination controller and 4KW space-saving Whale heating - offering the option of running on gas or electric. The implementation of this new heating system will also allow for ducted heating throughout, including in the bathroom.

Elsewhere, a new 'Marone' craftsman built cabinetry with handcrafted dove-tailed drawers, contrasting two-tone 'Fantasie Brushed' flush-fit kitchen units with chrome inset detail and overhead locker design with positive locking and removable shelves bring a fresh new feel to the Autoquest range. Upholstery comes courtesy of 'Parquet Blue' design elements, featuring Ozio high performance, lightweight construction.

Inside the kitchen, new luxurious granite effect deep worktops in 'Mineral Crème', three burner black enamel gas hob with multi-functional burner, spark ignition, flame failure protection and durable cover should provide the perfect opportunity to prepare meals.

Teleco Teleplus X2/39U directional aerial, electric step, leisure battery, midi Heki, as well as 90 litre freshwater and 70 litre waste tanks come as standard across the range. And if you're looking for a motorhome with a bit more power for charging up those gadgets while the TV's on and the kettle's boiling, the Autoquest comes with fully protected mains electric system with up to six 240V sockets - currently more than any other motorhome manufacturer.

Elddis hasn't scrimped on safety either and, in line with its 'Belts=Berths' campaign, each Autoquest model for 2016 comes with fully-homologated seat-belts for every passenger. On the Autoquest 155, 185 and 195 models foldaway belted travel seats feature, enabling these to be neatly hidden away beneath the parallel bench seats when not in use, ensuring a safe journey for all.
