Elddis Encore 250 motorhome

Sitting at the top of the Elddis tree, the Encore range offers buyers a luxury motorhome at an unbeatable price. And, for 2020, there is a new model, the 250.

This island bed low-profile is built on the low-line Fiat Ducato chassis, a new development for this year. This allows customers to upgrade from the standard 2.3-litre 140bhp manual engine to Fiat’s new fully automatic gearbox in 140bhp or 160bhp variants.

The lounge is made up of two inward-facing sofas, with the two swivel cab chairs adding to the seating options. The kitchen is in the centre of the motorhome opposite the washroom; the island bed sits at the rear.

This is not just a two-berth as the lounge seats quickly and effortlessly transform into a double bed, while fold out Aguti travel seats hidden beneath the bench seating provide two extra belted travel seats, which are also ISOFIX compatible.

Alde heating (an unusual luxury in this price bracket) remains, while new features for the 2020 season include a new Whale external water filling socket, Dometic Midi Heki and an external 230V mains socket.

Elddis Autoquest CV60 motorhome

In what is only its second year of campervan production, Elddis adds a completely unique layout to its Autoquest CV line-up, offering a French bed with a twist.

Stepping on board, the cab differs from the other two in the range as the cab seats swivel with a large half-height cupboard forming a coffee table-type top for the driver. There is also a pedestal table fitting here, making this a functional lounge area on site.

There’s a reason for this and that’s in the rear. What looks like a large tapered sofa actually makes into a French bed (with a simple lift and slide action). This means you can leave the bed down and just use the cab seats to lounge about in, or convert the bed back into a sumptuous rear lounge (or day bed for one).

Automatic options in 140 or 160bhp are available, as is the choice of new dark metallic grey paint - standard exterior colour is white.

Berths: 2
Travel seats: 2

Elddis Accordo 105 motorhome

The Elddis compact coachbuilt range is a firm favourite with UK buyers, offering great levels of comfort in an affordable and easy-to-drive package.

Elddis Accordo 105 motorhome

The Accordo 105 is a pure two-berth with twin inward-facing sofas in the lounge that make into a double bed with the easiest of actions (simply lift slightly and slide the sofas to meet in the middle).

Then there’s a spacious kitchen area placed centrally.

However, the real reason to buy this model is further back with an across-the-rear washroom that even offers a separate shower.
