Winner: Caravelair Antares 496 2019 (Marquis)

The Caravelair Antares 496 is exceptional value for money for a family caravan. With two bunk beds at the back next to the washroom, the Antares 496 is a spacious caravan with flexibility built in. It’s capable of sleeping six people with two in the bunks, and two each on the double beds in the lounge and the side dinette.

With its two dining areas, the 496 gives you option for not only where you eat, but where you spend your leisure time. Kids can watch TV in the main lounge while parents can read in the dinette, for example.

The Antares 496 has a well-equipped kitchen, including storage space, to cater for a big family, plus Truma heating and hot water for year-round comfort.

Outside, the 496 has an external BBQ point, power sockets and a shower for washing yourselves or the pets down. With its Al-Ko stabiliser and low MTPLM, the Caravelair Antares 496 is easy to tow with many vehicles.

This single axle, lightweight caravan is popular, and it’s obvious to see why. You get a good specification for your money, and it suits many families who want an affordable and flexible caravan for a growing family and all their kit.
