DETAILED REVIEW

The new Adria Altea 552 UP Trent model has a U-shaped lounge, an island bed and much finesse.

Island bed layouts remain as popular as ever and the Altea 552 UP Trent is a good example.

Its U-shaped lounge comfortably seats four, possibly five if the seating across the front is used. There’s a fold-down coffee table above this seat — so you have the choice: extra seating or somewhere for your coffee mugs.

The space in the centre of the caravan is shared by a nearside kitchen and offside washroom. The kitchen has a three-burner-inline hob and sink plus a combined oven-grill, and a Thetford fridge. A large cupboard overhead provides good storage space, plus there’s a small pan cupboard underneath the oven.

The compact washroom is best described as functional, but it does help provide space for this caravan’s pièce de résistance — a large island bed with decent wardrobes each side. Sometimes, in caravan layouts, compromises are unavoidable.

This is an ideal caravan for couples, especially those who like to use site facilities rather than their own washroom.

One stunning design feature of Alteas is the white lighting set into the bases of floating locker bases all around the caravan — above the bedhead and the kitchen and on both sides of the lounge. Another notable feature is the high-arching, wide roof light that rises above the lounge.

Windows on both sides of the bedroom make it light and bright. Curtains hang from brushed steel trim at roof height into which spotlights are embedded; very refined.

The level of finesse in the ultra-modern styling goes on, with neat, bright central ceiling lights, and cylindrical spotlights in the lounge and bedroom.
