Adria launches four lightweight caravans and a new twin-axle model
Adria launches four new lightweight models and a new twin-axle in the Alpina range
Slovenian manufacturer Adria’s lightweight Altea range gets major changes for 2020 with a new shape and increased payload margins on family models.
There will be four models, all named after English rivers, the Aire, the Dart, the Avon and the Tyne.
A twin-axle model will be introduced to Adria’s flagship Alpina range for the first time. This is a twin-axle version of the established Colorado model, which has twin beds and a full-width rear shower room.
The Altea Aire is a two-berth with a full-width shower shower and toilet room and a kitchen on the offside.
The Altea Dart will have a rear island bed layout. Wardrobes are on each side of the bed. The toilet and shower are centrally positioned, with the shower on the nearside and the separate toilet-washbasin compartment opposite. The lounge seating is U-shaped, wrapping around the entire front end. The kitchen is on the offside forward of the shower-toilet room.
The Altea Avon will have berths for six, with fixed bunks and two more bunks to convert from a dining area opposite, in a rear family room. This model replaces the Severn, with a longer body, creating a more spacious interior. The shower and toilet room is on the offside; the kitchen is on the nearside.
The Altea Tyne is an all-new twin-bed layout with a full width rear shower room. The shower is on the nearside, the washbasin is in the centre and the toilet is on the offside.
Heating is the Truma system, operated on gas or electricity. Wiring is installed for speakers, a Bluetooth amplifier and USB sockets. Status television aerials have been added for 2020.
Precise weights of the new models have yet to be finalised. MTPLM figures are expected to be as follows: Altea Aire 1,300kg; AlteaTyne 1,500kg; Altea Avon 1,500kg and Altea Dart 1,500kg.
The new twin-axle Alpina Colorado model’s features include headrests at the two front corners of the lounge, Alde heating and a 167-litre fridge.
The Alpina Mississippi, which continues to ride on a single axle, has an island bed and full-width rear shower room.
Alpina models are 2.46m wide. Both models for 2020 will have inlets to the awning channels on each side at the front, so that tow-protectors can be fitted.
The MTPLM figure for the new twin-axle Alpina Colorado and also of the Mississippi is expected to be around 2,000kg; exact weights have yet to be announced.
Both Alpina models continue to have 50-litre water tanks.
The Adora range continues to offer four layouts, the island-bed Isonzo, the nearside-bed Thames, the five-berth Sava and twin-bed Seine.
These models will be available in a choice of two fabric schemes and will have curtains with an increased volume of fabric compared with 2019 models.
Adria’s iconic sporty-image two-berth goes into 2020 with an unchanged layout– a U-shaped seating area, a rear kitchen and corner shower-toilet compartment. Its MTPLM is 1,300kg.
