Essential Guide to 2021 caravans – Buccaneer caravans
Buccaneer Bermuda caravan
Buccaneer caravans are well known for their premium-quality, impressive equipment and luxurious touches and the 2021 models are no exception.
All models are 8ft wide, allowing for maximum living space, whatever the weather, and are twin-axle.
New for this year is the Buccaneer Bermuda – a four-berth with double bedroom and L-shaped lounge. This elegant caravan features bronze and silver graphics on the exterior and this colour scheme is further complemented inside by the décor.
The new ‘Shimla’ ActivCare upholstery incorporates bronze piping on the seating and the cushions feature a pretty fan-shaped design that is delicate and Art Deco-inspired and adds further to the sense of luxury.
This is a caravan that will make any holiday feel like a truly decadent affair. The honeycomb-pattern splashback adds a modern touch and is easy to clean, while the K1520 oven mk2, is something you’ll certainly appreciate if you’re cooking for the family.
The double bedroom is sumptuous and offers almost infinite storage options – lockers above the bed, cupboards and drawers to the sides for all those essentials you may need to take.
The new Buccaneer Bermuda comes with an improved corner vanity unit with LED strip lighting emitting a soft, warm glow.
The bed – like all island beds in the Buccaneer range, extends to a full 6ft 3in, retracting in day-mode to create greater floorspace. There is also the option to upgrade to a Hypnos mattress and coordinating bedding set.
The bedroom itself can be sectioned off thanks to a slide-across door and the washroom and shower are located in the centre of the caravan. Talking of which, LED lighting also appears in the shower, making for a most relaxing and decadent spa-like experience.
Premium technology is included as standard and in addition to underfloor heating and the touchscreen levelling system, you’ll also benefit from the Alde 3020 combi boiler with pump, making all-year touring comfortable and cosy.
Two USB ports and Dometic wireless charging compatible with many smartphones including selected iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel 3 devices are also included.

Buccaneer Barracuda caravan
Touring all year round is more than a possibility with the four-berth Buccaneer Barracuda, it’s an enticing prospect. Buccaneer caravans, like all of the caravans made by the Erwin Hymer Group in County Durham, are built using a fully bonded technique called SoLiD Construction, which is backed by a 10-year water ingress and body integrity warranty, keeping you warm as seasons change.
This has always been a popular caravan for couples and families alike but there have been significant improvements for the 2021 model year, giving it even more appeal.
Both the soft furnishings and the fixtures within have been completely modernised – drawers are soft close, lines are smoother and LED lighting has been added for that extra touch of luxury.
Top kit includes – touchscreen levelling, Alde underfloor heating, Alde 3020 combi boiler and wireless charging for devices.

Buccaneer Aruba caravan
Luxury is the name of the game when we are talking about the six-berth Buccaneer Aruba.
A large lounge makes this the ultimate family caravan for daytime while the sleeping arrangements are made to work around your life and those you tour with.
Couples may want to make use of the French-style fixed bed to the rear of the caravan while grandparents could rest weary heads on the supersize double bed (or singles) that converts from the wide, wraparound dining area in the centre of the caravan or make use of the supersize double in the lounge area.
Kit, as you’d expect, is of the highest specification – automatic self-levelling for easy pitching, Dometic wireless charging with two USB points and Alde 24hr central heating system, including underfloor heating throughout.
Furnishings are sumptuous thanks to the ‘Shimla’ upholstery scheme. Buccaneer upholstery is PetFriendly - anti-snag, hypoallegenic and wipe-clean, so it’s as practical as it is pretty.
Price from £35,894 OTR
