CaravanTimes headed along to Elddis to take a closer look at the Avante

Earlier this week, Elddis unveiled their new caravan ranges for 2017, included in which was the new Avante line up.

Perhaps the most exciting news to come from the Avante's line up was the introduction of two new models for the 2017 season, namely the Avante 840 and the Avante 866 - both of which are 8ft wide.

The Avante 840 has certainly been designed with families in mind, or simply couples who are looking for a caravan with a host of options as far as layout is concerned, including a new fixed bed, super-size lounge - ideal for entertaining and becoming a large double bed at night. Furthermore, a large horseshoe-shaped diner, ideal for eating of simply relaxing, can be converted into a near-side French bed opposite the bathroom which comes fully equipped.

The other 8ft offering within the Avante range, the 866, also provides for an abundance of extra space, creating an unprecedented family layout. Again, with a huge lounge, a horseshoe diner complements large pod-style bunkbeds at the rear alongside a separate lounge area where the kids can chill out and crash. Both the Avante 840 and Avante 866 come complete with new front panels and gas locker doors.

Built on an AL-KO chassis with AKS 3004 stabiliser and ATC, the Avante range also comes with a Whale Expanse eight-litre underfloor water heater; Whales 4.3kW underfloor space heater; new locker door 'quite close' gasket; revised kitchen splashback, 'boutique' bathroom sink; new worktop and vanity counter top; 'Linden' Aquaclean upholstery, and new exterior graphics plus more.

CaravanTimes headed along to Elddis to find out more about the Avante, so check out our video above and let us know what you think. We think you'll be impressed.
