Best Twin-axle Caravan for Families: Compass Casita 868

25b72cb3-ae2c-4f6e-86fd-7506e404d896

Winner: Compass Casita 868

What’s special?

Families need extra space for living, sleeping and eating in a caravan. The Compass Casita 868 provides a great balance of all three elements while remaining good for value for money. That’s why the 868 was a strong finisher in our 2020 awards.

For sleeping, the Compass Casita 868 can accommodate up to six people comfortably. However, it’s ideal for a family of four with children. At the rear, there are two bunk bed pods, which are over six feet long, that you can close off with curtains to provide some privacy.

Next to the bunks is a double French bed for the parents. For guests or more children, you can create two more berths from the lounge seats at the front.

With doors either side of the central washroom, the Compass Casita 868 enables you to close it off to use the shower or the toilet for privacy. The design makes it flexible for families doing different but concurrent daily activities.

The kitchen comes with an oven, grill, dual fuel, microwave oven and a big fridge-freezer. There is plenty of storage for food and kitchen equipment, and an extendable kitchen surface for preparing food or washing up.

The Compass Casita 868 is a great choice for a growing family that needs adaptability in their caravan during the day or night. At under £25,000, the 868 remains affordable for many families.
