Caravan summary

What's good?

The internal space and ceiling height.
The island bed comfort and space.
Shower space.
Very stable when on site with the steadies down, very little chassis movement.
Good sound reduction from outside.

What's bad?

The faults, fit and finish.
The water tank/pump arrangement. Changed for 2014.
Lighting levels not quite right. Too bright with all lights on, too dim with just the background lighting.
Front seats a bit too high and roof lockers slightly too low.
Far too low at the back.

Would you recommend it?

No

Style & comfort ****

Do you like the way it looks?

Its OK, but other than an Airstream all caravans are white boxes on wheels really.

Is it comfortable?

Yes

Ease of towing ****

Is it easy to tow?

Yes. The 2013's long draw bar changed for the 2014 models loses a mark here.

Reliability & water ingress **

Anything to look out for?

Slide out fit and finish disappointing
Roof leaks. Leaks through TV antenna into lockers, leaks through roof lights, leaks through A/C unit.
Not quite snorkel and flipper territory but not good.

Practicality ***

Does it meet your holiday needs?

Yes

Any modifications?

No

Buying experience *****

Did you buy it new or used?

new

Where did you buy it?

Privately

What was the seller like?

Very friendly and helpful during the purchase. After Sales seem to be struggling to respond in a timely manner though.
