Winner

Adria Alpina Colorado

Layout

Twin beds, rear shower room, U-shaped lounge

What's special?

Adria Alpina Colorado

Headrests in the lounge! The enormous size.

The Colorado is a real apartment on wheels, perfect for seasonal siting.

The Slovenian-made Adria Alpina Colorado's twin-bed layout ensures its appeal both to families and couples. Heating is the Alde system. And the construction of the twin beds means you can raise the pillow sections, sun-lounger-style, for daytime relaxing.

The Alpina Colorado won its high marks from all four of our judges for its excellent value for its size, gaining marks along the way for features including Alde heating, the ultra-stylish concave top lockers – and because this is the only caravan that head headrests in the front corners of the lounge.

Buccaneer Aruba

Layout

Double bed, wide dining area making into a second double, rear offside corner shower room

What's special?

So much space! So much luxury! And so much equipment!

This eight-feet-wide caravan has an awesomely versatile layout. It sleeps six but is also a brilliant four-berth. Here's why: you can make a double bed from the large central dining area, which means you can leave the lounge permanently in day mode, or you can make single beds or a double in the lounge, leaving the dining area in day mode.

The level of equipment is impressive, and includes, a 40-litre water tank, Alde heating with additional underfloor heating and an Aquasource Waterline to connect your caravan to the water supply on a pitch. It also has E&P's automatic self-levelling system.

Price £33,399 + £595 delivery
MTPLM 1983kg
Overall length 8.16m
Width 2.45m

Airstream Colorado

Airstream Colorado

Layout

Double bed, central kitchen, U-shaped lounge

What's special?

The Airstream Colorado's riveted aluminium body, its iconic shape and its aluminium interior walls and ceiling.

Swift Group now distributes Airstreams. Swift tells us the Colorado is the best-seller of the three-model American-made range. It's also the largest.

Kitchen worktops are domestic-style Corian, with a grooved section drainer. You can choose from two leather upholstery options, brown and black, or beautiful black fabric with white stitching for the lounge.

The headroom is 1.99m, 3cm higher than any other caravan. They come with a built-in patio-style awning canopy.

The interior and exterior styling is like no other caravan. These are caravans for the discerning, for those not limited by budget and, in the context of this award for Best Seasonal Sited Caravan, you don't necessarily need a towcar to match its gargantuan 2400kg MTPLM.

Price £91,995
MTPLM 2400kg
Overall length 8.25m
Width 2.5m

Swift Elegance Grande 655

Layout

Bunks, drop-down bed in a central dining area, L-shaped kitchen

What's special?

The unique layout! The drop-down double bed! The position of the kitchen, aft of the dining area.

This six-berth, eight-feet-wide tourer has a double bed which hinges down from the offside wall above an L-shaped sofa.

The kitchen is also L-shaped; it's to the rear of the bed sofa area and has a Dometic 190-litre fridge-freezer. Opposite the kitchen are bunks. The washroom is across the back.

The lounge seating is L-shaped, with a circular freestanding stool. There are two tables. One is for two people to dine. The other is long and rectangular and can be used either in the lounge or close to the central sofa. The lounge has a 'media wall', on the nearside, with connections for a television.

Price £33,725 plus
