This caravan is a: tiny tourer with an end kitchen
Astonished faces greeted me on the Caravan Club site as I towed in three of the quirkiest caravans known to man. These are the John Cleese, Jeremy Hardy and Rowan Atkinson of caravans (in no particular order) and are about as ordinary as liquorice sandwiches. Inside and out they break a mould, which was a bit mouldy anyway.
I’ll draw some conclusions right here. All three are utterly fantastic, which is why we’ve brought them together. So when the T@B logs a low score for its washroom, it’s simply how this caravan’s supposed to be – for people who will use site shower blocks.

| Take these final scores with a pinch of salt. How can the T@B score a dismal three in the washroom category when it was never supposed to have one? What appears to be an AWOL washroom is actually a bonus to a T@B buyer, who values the extra living space.
Only the T@B and Adria have lounges you’d be happy to lounge in. The Eriba’s dinette is comfortable enough for eating but then you’ll want to be either lying on that immense bed or out in the awning; this is not caravan for daytime living.
All three have massive storage capability. All three can be considered light. They have large payloads and are built to a high standard. The beds are so big they embarrass caravans three times the size. In fact, when you look at it, you’ll see that they only fall down on such things as missing loos, showers or ovens. And quite rightly; the people buying these caravans will call a luxury what others might consider an essential item.
So which to choose? It’s the Eriba for sleeping (and by some margin). It’s the Adria for being so radical, but at the same time getting closest to real world comfort and practicality. It’s the T@B for its looks, inside and out; it’s so cute you’ll probably want to give it a name.
