  1. We are considering getting our first caravan. We are a family of four - two kids aged 5 and 2. We need a layout that provides us with a good sleeping arrangement so the kids can go to sleep while we relax! We also want a shower room that functions well (we don't want to rely on site facilities). Wardrobe storage is also important and a kitchen which is practical. We love the interior feel of the Adria and it is the Altea 552 DT Tamar that we are considering. We haven't seen one yet as the dealer is quite a distance away. If anyone has this van could you comment on the functionality of the bathroom - is the shower useable and how well does the drop down sink work? Is there sufficient wardrobe space? I like the high level oven but the fridge is smaller than the others we are looking at (only 90l) . The other options are the Sprite Major 6 and the Bailey Phoenix 650. We have seen both of these and the layouts work well but the contemporary feel of the Adria is much more suited to our taste. But do the Sprite or Bailey provide a more useable family caravan than the Adria? Any advice would be appreciated.
  2. Hi. Does anyone know if the route through the Gotthard tunnel involve towing the caravan up steep mountains? We are travelling from Black Forrest Germany to Basel then to Milan Italy and from there to Sicily. I have never done that route before and I am worried that I might get in trouble with towing the caravan if this route involves steep hills. Any advice is very welcome. Elaina
  3. i have an adira 2006 432px just wondering wht the best size porch awning will fit the van without going across the windows. tia
  4. Hi I have a 1983 Adria Deluxe that isn't insurable at the moment but it's a project and I'm doing it up as a hair and beauty salon so the value will increase quite sufficiently. Does anyone recommended an insurance company please?
  5. Is it just my van or are the fly screens on the roof vents not much use in stopping flying insects coming in?! We have an Adria Altea 542DT and we've just returned from a site that had a lot of flies and wasps. We had the 2 roof vents open (with the fly screens fully across the opening, but the wasps simply landed on the outside of the fly screen, then walked along the top of the fly screen until it reached one of the edges, at which point there was a pause of a few seconds before it appeared on the inside the van!! I've had a look and they don't seem to be falling off or lose. Is this a common problem? Has anyone found a good solution? It got so bad, we gave up and shut the vents. The window fly screens seemed to offer slightly more resistance, but they too were breached!
  6. Hi there We are just back from our first trip in our new (to us) 2006 Adria Altea 205DK and we lost our jockey wheel. I went online to buy a new one and there are so many sizes & choices!! Can anyone help please? What size would we need? Thanking you in advance
  7. Hi all. I'm completely new to caravaninng and recently bought a 1992 Adria. Having had no previous experience, we're trying to get our heads around the electrics. Could anyone take a look at these photos and tell me if the electrics are safe? It looks like a total mess! My husband has some basic knowledge of electrics and I had asked him to add some more powerpoints throughout the van but now I'm not so sure if that's wise! Thanks in advance.
  8. Finally I have gotten around to writing a bit about our van and hopefully update it with the little modifications/additions we make to it as time goes on. As we have had her almost a year I will be playing catch up with some of the bits that have been done. This has been prompted by this topic http://www. caravantalk. co. uk/community/topic/83605-our-adria-sportline-dk-2013-photos/ which i have found interesting, funny and informative. Addie is our first caravan. She is a 2011 Adriia Altea 542DK. We chose Addie after viewing many vans and deciding this was the best for us based on layout, flexibility, tow car match and value for money. My wife searched for one in our area for a while but there doesn't seem to be many in the North East. When she found one we went to look and she instantly fell in love. Two days later a deposit was placed. Here she is shortly after getting her home. My first tow with anything bigger than a trailer. Although a 2011 model whoever had had it before us most of rarely used it. We could only find 1 mark on the worktop and it still had that new smell. The furnishings are nice but a little bare so the first alteration was to the curtain tie backs. My wife added some trim around the edges which we think lifts the colour nicely. There are now matching and complimentary cushions too (what is it with women and cushions? ) That will do for now while I try to remember what I did next.
  9. Hi all. I'm a complete caravaninng newbie and have recently bought a 1992 Adria. I'm having real trouble getting my head around the electrics, I can't seem to get everything to work at once ie some lights work, flick a switch and then they don't but other electricals do. Anyway, does anyone know what this brown switch on the left is for? Thanks.
  10. Ok, so we emerged from the Stena Hollandica thursday morning after a very pleasant and carm crossing overnight and made our way across Holland (via a dealer in Arnhem ) and onto the 2014 caravan salon the next morning. What a show ! And what a refreshing change from the UK examples here at the NEC twice a year, about 8 massive air conditioned halls, bright airy and clean. Most of the major manufactures had either a whole hall or at least half a hall to themselves. Each stand was a mix of motorhomes and caravans and at no point did we feel it was overcrowded or that were about to be pounced on by a dealer asking us the same quizzing question. The fellow visitors were soooo polite and we were treated with a hallo or guten tag or a conversation if they found out were were English on occasion. It was noticeable that the set up is so different, a manufacture sets his stall out, brings along 80% of the vans it offers, mainly the top sellers and it is a basic spec with a few choice extras. By visiting a stand you find out exactly what you want, there is usually a list of dealers and none of them hassle you . You can then either ask questions and confirm a price or just move onto another hall after being invited for a coffee and cake. The is Unlike the NEC where you find the same van over and over again on either a manufactures stand or a big dealers stand where the price varies by £££££ if it has a microwave or deluxe velour upholstery option fitted or not. You find yourself going backwards and forwards looking at the same van trying to workout what the difference is. Often finding the same van just renamed for a dealer with some localised name at the same price. It felt like we were in a car dealership or proper trade shows and made a refreshing change. I had identified 4 or 5 models that we wanted to take a look at, all with a fixed bed and nice seating area. These were: Klaus 450 FU, Adria 462PU, Dethcleffs C,Go and C,Trend 475 FR, Wiensburg 450FU, Burstner 450TS. All with this layout.
  11. Hi All, Thought i would set up a topic and send on my thoughts about what my wife and me are about to do next week, This is not meant to be a endless debate about the positives and negatives of Euro vans Vs English caravans as we have read and read all of this and have come to the conclusion that to get what we want we may have to explore elsewhere, and its a bit of a break from the norm and takes in a trip to Germany (sausage, sauce and frits here we come). We welcome any advice from anyone else who may have done something similar and at the end of the day we may not go ahead and buy anything. So, We have the Ferry booked (Stena via Harwich - Hook overnight) and we have managed to get some free tickets from a very helpful German Knaus Caravan dealer to get into the Caravan Salon Dusseldorf 2014. Why. ..... As a young couple with no kids, 1 dog and new to caravaning we have spent some time (while saving up a small kitty) spending many a weekend at various dealers and shows here in the UK. We have poaked and prodded all the basic/entry level Swifts (sprites), Elddis's, Adria's, Lunar (venus) and Baileys, second hand, new and nearly new and out of all of them the Adria has stood out a being bright, fresh pratical and modern, the rest to us (as 30 somethings) look a bit chinzy and yellow ( hard to explain that one but alot of caravans feel yellow !) and it apears that you are only afforded style and practical layouts if you pay a fair bit (16K +) and buy a 4x4 to tow it. Ideally i can only justify spending £8k to £13k on this new venture. We want a compact fixed bed but with a lounge area to spend the day in and eat at, we dont want to have to make up beds everynight (we are on holiday !) so the fixed bed is a must but it has to be under max 1300kg to be towed by my car. I drive a Volvo V60 Rdesign D2 Auto and love this car and cant find a reason to change to get a gas guzzling Brick on wheels 4x4 (not meant to offend 4x drivers, i just like an estate sorry or hatchback) and to be around 5-6m in length max, compact and light. .. As a couple it seams a 4 berth is the way forward to achive the above but cant imagine many families buying the 4 berths we have looked at unless they have only 1 child to be honest as room would be an issue. Our UK choices are as follows: Sprite 4 - Adria 432 PX TAY - Baily Orion 440 - Venus 4??? something. .... I will post again on our thoughts of these caravans if anyone is interested.
  12. Hi, I have a 2009 Adria Altea 542DT which we have owned from new and unfortunately have just found an area of soft wall panelling, this looks like a leak coming from the joint in the ear panel. Just wondering if anybody else has had this problem with their Adria? What the best way to deal with this? Its only a area about 100mm square and away at the back of the bunks. I have resealed the joint so that should let it start to dry out. We bought this from new and only managed the first service so the warranty is void. Only got a chassis service thinking the body would be ok given the warranty you get with an Adria
  13. Don't forget all you fellow not-so-new-Adria owners, maybe consider posting your own review of your van once you have had it for a while?! http://www. caravantalk. co. uk/community/page/caravan-reviews/_/adria/

  15. I'm going to try fitting my new electronic pressure regulator tomorrow, and I was going to use the pressurised wintering kit thing to blast out all the water in the pipes to the taps but then discovered I'd left my 12v tyre inflator at home. I have to disconnect the white pistol shaped Whale pressure sensor/regulator thing which is fixed just inside the caravan close to where the external Truma pump connects. I'm worried that even if I open all the taps and the boiler tap to drain the system, when I disconnect this white pressure switch, I'm going to get a few litres of water inside the caravan. Is this likely? Thanks Mike
  16. More Q's sorry! For those who have the Adria carpet set how are these attached to the floor? Is there a pop stud each corner and suitable receiver on vinyl flooring? Or are they completely freestanding with a non slip type backing? As the Adria ones are £200 + , I think we are going to get a local carpet shop to bind us some carpets to our size, but just worried about them moving in situ and becoming a trip hazard
  17. Whilst looking for our van we came across Club Adria, but didn't think much about it back then. Recently they were featured on TV and got me thinking again. Is anyone on here a member of Club Adria? If so, what are your thought? I'm interested to know What do you get for being a member, what the rallies are like and the club in general really. Cheers, Mark
  18. Hi all, I posted this at the end of another thread but thought it may get a better response on its own, plus id like a fairly quick response too if possible. My wife and I have seen a van which we like. We've been looking for one of these for a little while as it was our preffered van (seems to suit our needs well) and would like peoples opinion on the price and have a couple of questions too. 2011 Adria Altea 542dk. Up for £10. 5. No extra pack so no blow heating, stabilizer etc. It's being sold on behalf of a customer (maybe trade in or similar but think they bought it there originally) so they are not keen on budging on price. Will take £10 but that's with no bottles (but i do have a macgas one), battery, EHU cable etc etc. Basically bare. Didn't see a water cable/pump now I think about it, will have to ask. Or they may discount extra items if we pay more for van (probably works out the same). Looks well looked after, just expected more enthusiastic haggling from the salesperson. So, a couple of questions. 1/ If there is no water pipe/cable, are these easy/cheap to buy? 2/ It has a bulk head gas regulater with a standard calor pig tail and connector. What would i need to use my bp/macgas bottle? (as we are new, i like the idea of seeing how much gas is left as we have no idea what we will use and have 4 kids to cook for). They did say they could change the pigtail but dont stock the reg we would need. 3/ Does £60 sound about right for fitting a plug socket into a cupboard for a microwave? 4/ They offered and alko stabalizer hitch fittede and lock for £300. Sound right? 5/ There is no external aerial but i know the cabbling is there below a cupboard. Will an aerial inside a cupboard be any good or give terrible reception? Im not too bothered, its more for the toddlers. 6/ Whats needed to add blow heating and roughly how much would it cost? 7/ It had some sort of adaptor fitted to the hook up cable to make it a 7 pin. I unscrewed the back and there certainly seemd to be more than 7 cables (didnt have a good look as i new i shouldnt really be doing it) but i couldnt get the "adaptor" off. The main body had the twist fit part like a 13 pin but the end was 7 pin. I presume it was an adaptor but couldnt be certain. It looked very similar to this http://www. ebay. co. uk/itm/7-to-13-Pin-Adaptor-for-Caravans-Trailers-or-Towbar-Cycle-Carriers-/281041126551?pt=UK_Car_Accessories_Touring_Travel&hash=item416f5b4497#ht_220wt_903 Our cars do have 7 pins sockets so we'd need a cable to convert to 2x 7pins sockets or change the sockets on the car to a 13 pin. Ok ok, i know there is loads of questions, and probably more to follow, but for once we have seen a van we like and have the funds ready. Im just trying not to get too carried away and make a mistake. So, can anyone help with any of the questions, offer their opinion on price or make any general comments about these vans? Cheers, Mark
  19. Has anyone fitted a fly screen for the door on an Altea? Noticed it hasn't got one there which I would like to fit. Thanks
  20. One happy new owner of our 2011 model 542DT. Picked up this weekend and had a good play around on drive before taking to storage and attempting parking for first time there! First impressions: Big long and wide compared to our folding camper. Tows well with great stability and weight easy behind our car. Felt some pitching maybe need to play with loading Heavy noseweight as others have mentioned on here with one half full gas and a spare wheels and not a lot else up front, its around 80kg-85kg (which is fine for our car) Things feel solid inside (more so than other makes we looked at to be honest). Beds are comfy and roomy, especially the bunks which kids love! Not easiest to make up with sheet etc though Great storage with bottom bunk as extra storage on site if only two kids! Side diner is just big enough for two largish adults and two youngish kids (brilliant!) Fridge is smallish as is oven. Lounge seats comfy, seat squab a little short if 5ft10+, but makes into a comfy bed and easy to make up. Bathroom is great, solid sink and decent tap and loads of useable space. Our previously adapted Fiesta 350 fits on fine and is a great size easy erect porch awning so no more expense there! Overall so far. ...... love it! Two nights away coming up to try it all out. Thanks for all replies previously on here which have been helpful
  21. Hi For those with Adria's built with the "Thermobuild" construction, how warm are they inside and what do your kids sleep in, in the bunks, ie sleeping, duvet, sheets only etc? Just trying to get an idea as to what's easiest and warm enough. Also fitted sheet sizes for the front bed and the 3 bunks please if anyone can help and save us some time!? Thanks
  22. Hi Looking at possibility of one of these vans as first family van. Two adults and two kiddies who are 8 + 6. Layout looks great and aware of polyester sides, decent level of "damp protection" and longer draw bar aswell as larger bunks as pluses, as well as value for money it seems. Anything I should watch out for specifically on this model/make, if looking to buy privately Many thanks
