Best Eight-feet-wide caravan: Elddis Avanté 868

a4dd7ebc-1386-4795-9d71-7aa2a5c03167

Winner: Elddis Avanté 868

The eight-feet-wide Elddis Avanté 868 is a great choice if you need space for family caravanning holidays. The extra breadth, makes a big difference. And, with all that space, the Avante 868 is a versatile family caravan.

You can close off the rear bedroom by closing the door between the kitchen and central washroom to create an en suite. Or, if you turn the front lounge seats into a double bed and slide the door across between the rear bedroom and the washroom, your guests can have some privacy too.

More width also increases the space in the kitchen area. It’s easier to then move around between areas in the caravan than narrower models. The big kitchen space means it’s easier to cook for your family. Especially when you get a fully equipped kitchen.

Whale heating and hot water, a ten-year body and water ingress warranty. Plus, the ‘European Whole Vehicle Type Approval’ means you can tow the Elddis Avanté 868 anywhere around Europe in all seasons with confidence. But, if you prefer to leave it at one pitch all year, the 868 is a great choice.

At under £25,000, and with a low MTPLM for such a big caravan, the 868 is an attractive choice for anyone in the market for an eight-feet-wide model.
