Avondale Leda Cambrian


Recommended Posts

I am trying to find some info on my avondale leda cambrian 4 berth apparently it is 40 odd years old but that's all I know.

The Leda Cambrian was at one time the Avondale basic 2 berth model. As far as I can see it was built only between 1990 and 1996. It should have a serial number on it, usually on a plate near the door, so that might help if you can find it. A photo also might help if you  have one.

Depending on the year, you are looking at a MIRO of 723 kg to 826 kg and an MTPLM of 900 kg  to 1060 kg.

The internal length should be 3.99 to 4.14 m and the shipping length 5.38 to 5.64 m. The awning size 8.13 to 8.27 m.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for getting back to us Adam. It's always ice to know that our advice has been useful.

Just as a final check, there may be a metal ID plate inside the caravan, over the entrance door, similar to the one below. The early ones were often grey (not yellow and blue) and while this system had definitely been adopted by 1988, I'm not sure when it started. The earliest models relied upon a chassis number only that was prefixed with the letters, "LE" and  an ID plate was attached to the front a frame.

Does anybody know where I can buy a awning for this caravan, I don't want to spend any more then £300? I currently have 1 that my brother in law has given us but its slightly to big and doesn't have the window covers nor ground sheet etc.

If you wish, awnings can be modified to make them either large, by adding an insert of material, or shorter by removing some. Frames can be altered to match if needed.

This was a full awning on our small caravan that we had modified to become a universal one for our larger outfit.

At £300 you will only get a porch awning if buying new. You might find a full size second hand one if you search the adverts on the web. ground sheets are probably cheap enough to buy any way but if you use grass pitches you will need a breathable one to protect the grass.

I currently have a used bradcot classic thats a tad to big ill look into making it smaller/fit. I've only had it up once while we was on camp so maybe I put it up wrong. Thanks!

I would double check the awning size by running a length of string through the awning rail from the ground at one end to the ground at the other and if it is out by more than 20 cm look at it being reduced. there are several companies advertising in the mgazines who will do this.

Sorry about the questions but trying to keep on the same page as no point creating/explaining all the same stuff. I live close to doncaster and was wondering if you guys know where I can buy a new battery locker door for the caravan?

Door and door frame come as an item.   Second-hand ones will be cheaper than new.   Try ebay.

 

PS.   Check sizes accurately before purchase.

Given the age of your Cambrian (1985) you're probably best to look at caravan breakers such as SFM Caravans, or check the list of spares suppliers I've pinned at the head of this section. If you have the simple drop-lid locker front then these should be readily available in various sizes, however if you have the 'all plastic' locker front with the integral mains inlet then they will be a little harder to source.

You may also have  a drop front lid - with cutout for cable entry - 'end on' battery
