  11. Hi barlyn Answers to your questions. 1. The front windows are form a different supplier to the side windows are at present are not available with the locking system It is something we can consider for future product. 2. There were issues with some of the 1st Avtec aerials with fitted but these have now been resolved. The testing of the aerial we have done has shown it to be a 13% improvement of tv reception. 3. The Water tank is not fitted as standard purely due to weight considerations as fitting the water tank increases the MTPLM by 50 kgs. If your towing vehicle can tow the extra weight then it is possible to have the water tank fitted. 4. This is now an option and was a free show offer at the Factory weekend 5. The overhead locker handles are chosen for their looks and functionality. The issue that you raise of being harder to operate for left handed persons I will bring to the attention of the Development team so that they take it into account for future choices of handles. Regards David
  12. Millerhouse12 I have noted your concerns at the actual noseweight for the Affinity 550 and that we do no normally publish the unladen nose weight the reasons for this are outlined below. With the increase in the rear fixed bed layouts (Elddis designation 550) the potential for a high unladen nose weight has increased. These types of layout by their design have a higher nose weights than other layouts. This is due to the light back end with contains only the rear fixed bed and 2 small wardrobes. All the heavy items such as the Kitchen equipment, space and water heaters and toilet and shower room are either over or in front of the axle. In order to achieve a usable nose weight it is necessary to carefully load the caravan to ensure the nose weight remains below the Coupling head maximum of 100kgs. These layouts have a large storage area under the fixed bed which should be utilised to counter balance the items fitted and loaded in front of the axle. For example the placing of an awning under the fixed bed can reduce the nose weight by up to 30kgs. The unladen nose weight can be misleading as the laden nose weight can be altered dramatically by the way the Customers loads the caravan. Customers need to be made aware that the loading of their 550 caravan is critical and that the Industry and Caravan Club recommend an actual laden nose weight of 7% of the actual laden weight. This in most cases would be higher than the maximum nose weight of the coupling and the towing car, therefore the nose weight should be as high as possible without exceeding the Coupling or Towing car maximum nose weight whichever is the lower. At Elddis we look at all aspects of the caravan weight and the nose weight is one area where we have taken several steps to try to reduce the unladen nose weight, however the more popular layouts with our customers do lead to higher nose weight as explained above. Regards David
  13. Hi BFM I can confirm that the mattress of the transverse bed on the Rallye 644 is 6f by 4'5" Regards David
  14. Hi TheTravellingRooster We are not changing the Elddis chassis from BPW to Alko we have introduced a new range of Caravan Compass on the Alko chassis. Both chassis systems are tried and tested and have been in the industry for many years. However with our Solid construction the caravan body is also bonded to the chassis and therefore this gives better reliance to this type of issue.
