Practical Caravan

I couldn't help but notice that in the February 05 edition of PC, they check out continental caravans. I can't understand why Adria vans weren't featured.

 

Has any body any ideas?

Hi Yossa,

Having just bought a Adria I was disappointed that they weren,t featured in PC, the local dealer says he sells 5/6 vans a month.

Perhaps they want to keep it a secret for the canny few to discover ? :)

Well I hope they don't get too popular. When the time comes to get a new van i am put of some makes where they can sell the vans before they even come out the factory. Cause the impression i get is that some dealers take the view "if you don't want it then some other punter will". Is it just me or does a smug dealer bragging about how everyone wants their vans just a wee bit offputting?....and you know there are loads grumbling cause their aftersales service is rubbish.

Yep I have to work out an excuse for the missus so that we can drop in on that dealer. The other thing I like about them is the light weight. 1150 is 85% of my car and Adria do a fixed bed at that weight. I don't like the way vans are getting heavy. I have got a car that was suitable for what it does 90% of the time which is to be a loadlugger and it does it cheap and fast. I cannot justify buying a car just to tug a small bungalow oaacasionally and then those cars cannot be driven round our twisty roads as fast and cost an arm and a leg to fill with fuel.

Oh and I am bored with the British style of two bench seats at the front and a narrow floor down the middle. ...makes me think I am in a corridor. I quite like the continental layout of bed at one end and then lounge across the width of the van.

Adria caravans are built in England but the company is still slovenian, also Adria Uk have taken over the Fleetwood range, and the top of the range Fleetwood is the same as the top of the range Adria. But the Fleetwood is £2000 more expensive!!!! :D

Hi All,

 

I`m pretty sure they are still built in slovinia.

 

Re Practical caravan. ..they are a totally byast publication loyal to the British caravan industry where they reap thousands in advertising not to mention a rake of freebies thrown at them left right and centre.

 

Adria caravans are solid, lightweight, built to last, practical and stylish. And the British industry simply cant compete.

 

I stopped buying PC as they just recycle the same old stories month for month :huh:

Hi all,

Most of the new vans in our local dealers show room have built in Slovinia on them, and he tells me he sells more Adria vans than any other make. :)

Very interested in buying a Adria can anyone tell me whether it is worth spending the extra on Adiva model do you get much more for your money than what comes with the Adora. The model i am looking at is the 532UP. Fed up with making up the bed in my Elddis Hurricane.

Hi Martraven,

I dont think there is very much difference between the two, we,ve just had our first weekend away in our new Adora 532up and we are over the moon with it, (no more making up the bed) and we can't wait to get away again, but Im sure your local dealer will be more than happy to give you advice.

 

 

Good Luck,

 

Gareth, :)

Hi All

Good to see some more activity under the Adria name as you can see at bottom we have a Adora 532lt and love it just can’t wait to get it back out after winter we picked it up in September last year and used it four times before Christmas with no problems at all the extra width you get on them is really noticeable inside.

We actually paid extra last year for a full oven and alko stabiliser hitch which now come as standard on this years model as far as I am aware the only difference on this years model is the alloy wheels stereo, different upholstery & graphics.

The only down side I have found as I have said before is that there is now way of turning the 12v electrics of I haven’t asked my dealer if there is any way of putting one in yet but I now that my battery gauge in the van is nonexistent now after only about eight or nine weeks since we last used it.

Our last van was a craftsman miracle which you don’t se many around so to follow in the tradition it will be good to spot and meet other Adria owners out and about this year.

Guest mr_sheens

just for the record adria are built in Slovinia. i should know, im an adria dealer. shocking that an adria saleman doesnt know where his product is made. surely that would be the first thing to know.
