Congratulations. ......!!

 

Looks a very, very nice caravan, big heavy beast though and perhaps not for the masses, even so it seems a quality product.

That's a cheap and needless post. ....

 

Adria seem to have excellent reliability rates (according to owners) and to condemn something that's not yet had any issues is very sad, even more for the potential owner. Post another caravan make that's been water tight.

 

It seems logical to me that's its the quality of design, build and materials that keeps a caravan dry. Not some marketing ploy.

 

Adria are using new bonding techniques with a proven method of their build, if I where to put money on a dry caravan, it would be on a Adria product.

Arrived at York yesterday. Front of a drawer has fallen off and the stereo is dead. Along with the fridge light which the dealer has under investigation. Little niggles don't spoil your holiday BUT you do start to wonder if there is an alternative to this thrown together British rubbish.

Adria - Nice van and appears to be well put together. My only concern is the resale value - I have friends who have experienced massive trade in losses on Adria, Hobby and other non UK vans.

nice looking van just seen the guy doing the You-tube tour.

1800 when fully laden -- touch to big for us -- but it is nice. .

pre 2009/2010 maybe so. post those dates (thermobuild onwards) have very good resale values.

My measure is what is the resale value as a percentage of list when 3 years old - Swift, Lunar and Bailey are always up there. Maybe if dealers offered guaranteed future value like they do with cars?

My first job in the new year is re-sealing an Adria. (2010) Window seals and rooflights. may have to do a stripout as walls are a bit pimply. They leak just the same as UK vans.

Dougie, don't forget to use a sealant that cannot attack the polyester. is it warranty work your doing as they have 6year ingress on a 2010?

Being trade and a Bailey Authorised repair, will Adria allow you to undertake the repairs (Adria stipulates servicing and warranty repairs at Adria dealers only)

Don't worry my Bailey is watertight and the minor problems I had with the heater and the mattress have been sorted quickly and really they are external manufacturers anyway. I am sure you will love your van as much as we love our lightweight van that is economical to tow and suits us just fine. The adria model similar to ours could not be towed by our car or would fit on our drive so to get one would mean a car and house swap. I think I will pass for the moment.

1, thought ours was water tight . ... it's not. 2, re sale value it's worth jack s. ...! 3, size and weight . .. got a shogun . 4, servicing all sorted, got a mate who is adria approved. 5, I've had 6 new caravans over the last 20 years and the 624 has been the coldest draughtiest thing we have ever lived in. :-)
