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.
You are reading this and hopefully may be able to help advise me or point me in the direction of others that may be able to help. Yesterday we purchased an old Hobby prestige 425 Caravan here in Spain, made in Holland or Germany and is on Spanish plates, in very good condition for the age, well looked after. Never had a caravan before so are giving it a go, very excited. However we have some questions…hundreds really but at the moment advice with one we cant find an answer to online until I came across your site. We don’t have hot water in caravan and want to know if its possible to have fitted a water heater? Either gas or electric, we don’t really fancy boiling saucepans. We have a container under the sink unit free standing to fill with water and a submersible pump which we think we attach to the sink somehow. Can you suggest a better way of obtaining water to make life a little easier? Thank you
