The unique and exclusive '866' layout was launched by the Explorer Group in September 2016 and has been the star of the show throughout 2017 Season, winning the exciting Innovation Award 2017:



Winning the Innovation Award with this layout, across three ranges, Caravan Magazine says:

"This is a true innovation; nothing like it has been seen before. It’s cleverly designed, creating four distinct zones: lounge, dining area, the kids’ bunks-and-seating area, and shower room.


"The layout is a giant step forward in caravan design, creating models that will widen the appeal (literally!) of touring caravanning. That’s why it’s the winner of our Best Innovation for 2017 award."

"Our congratulations go to the Explorer Group for a really special innovation."
