Mr. Keith Weaver | The best sleep in any caravan we have ever owned

16/05/17

After several caravans and all with twin beds, we chose the Elddis Avante 550 with a fixed double bed. I must be honest and say its the best sleep in any caravan we have ever owned. Its a very well made caravan. Strong and well designed with lots of great features. I would have liked an outside access point, allowing me to store under the front seats. It would have been perfect if there was extra lighting behind the bed for reading. For two people its a perfect caravan, one we plan on keeping for a long time!

Barry Goulding | The best investment we ever made

12/08/17

We are now into our 4th year of Caravanning and onto our 3rd Caravan. I don't think we will be changing our Van again anytime soon. We purchased the Avante 550 late 2017 and it was the best investment we ever made.

The Avante is easy to tow, the Alko ATC gives you great peace of mind. The Alloy wheels and trendy decals make the Avante look really nice too.

Inside, my Wife loves the Colour Scheme but the reason we bought this model is the fixed Island Bed and mid ship Bathroom. This layout suits us perfectly, generally there is only the two of us that use the van but if we do have visitors the layout means we won't be disturbed on a night if our guests need the loo.

Having an Island bed means also that the space under the bed is ideal for storage, plus there are plenty of cupboards in this model.

As I have inferred previously, we love this model and are looking forward to making some great memories in it, both here in the UK and on the Continent.
