DETAILED REVIEW

THE Ambiance sits just above the very continental Antares range and still has the door on the European side. However, it’s got slightly more equipment than Antares and feels a lot homelier.

All UK-bound Caravelair models have plain smooth sides and simple blue and grey graphics running along similar themes. Interiors are homely with smart two-tone cupboard doors and neutral beige fabrics. There are no curtains (but blinds and flyscreen are standard) yet the mock curtains and voile help to create a warmer feel.

This 400 has a kitchen and washroom at the rear, a double dinette in the middle (with wardrobe and small dresser opposite) and a big fixed double bed at the front. The bed frame lifts up to access the storage underneath and there is a nifty leg to keep the bed up while you are rummaging around.
The dinette can easily seat four but is just as cosy for two.

While it is a European caravan, the spec levels are good and the UK electrics are in place. The washroom has a tap that doubles as the shower and the kitchen sink comes with a removable plastic drainer. The combined sink and hob unit are curved to create extra worktop space. Storage is adequate for two but wouldn’t really be enough for four.

Equipment includes a water heater and space heater, waste water holding tank, TV point, rooflight and battery box - and if you want an oven/grill then take a look at the Ambiance 450 with twin single beds.
