The ideal two-berth for a touring couple who prefer the luxury of a huge washroom in the compact body of a sub-6m motorhome
The Accordo is a well-equipped compact coachbuilt range with the added appeal that it offers all of the attributes of its larger sibling, the Autoquest, but in a more compact body (under 6m long). The smallest – the 105 – is a pure two-berth with a comfortable lounge, a well-equipped kitchen and a super-large washroom.
The Accordo, build by British manufacturer Elddis, is a compact coachbuilt range of three models. Here we look at the smallest of the three – the 105.
The appeal of the Accordo is that is offers all of the attributes of its larger sibling, the Elddis Autoquest, but in a more compact body (all three models are under 6m long).
The 105 is a pure two-berth with twin inward-facing sofas in the lounge that make into a double bed or you can keep them as two single beds (up to 6’ 6” long) if you prefer by using the swivel cab seats.
There’s a kitchen placed centrally and features a combination oven and grill with a three-burner black enamel gas hob including high speed multi-function burner and spark ignition. There is also a 95-litre fridge with removable freezer unit.
While at the rear is possibly the largest washroom one could expect in a compact coachbuilt – it stretches the entire width of the ’van. This huge area has a Thetford toilet with auto-fill flush from the onboard water tank, and an Ecocamel Orbit water-saving halo shower in a separate shower cubicle.
For 2020, the Elddis has significantly increased the standard specification across the Accordo range and it now includes the new Whale CompleteHeat 4.3kW dual-fuel space-saving heating system as standard, which runs on gas and/or electric with quiet night-time setting and ducted heating throughout, including into the rear washroom.
Buyers also get new exterior water pump sockets, Fiamma bike rails, new fabrics and an improved exterior door.
As with its two Accordo siblings, the 105 is based on the Peugeot Boxer powered by the latest 140bhp Euro 6.2 engine. In the cab are twin swivel captain’s seats with armrests and above is a Sky-view opening sunroof with blind.
There is no automatic option, so the driver has a six-speed manual transmission. But kit in the cab is extensive, including cruise control, twin airbags (which are not as common as one would expect) DAB radio with steering-mounted controls, remote central locking, tyre pressure monitoring system, electric tinted cab windows, electric heated adjustable wing mirrors. And, a full spare wheel and tyre – a feature that is becoming less common in modern motorhomes.
In the habitation area, the design is Elddis’ Sevilla with ActivCare hi-performance wipe-clean upholstery and loose fit Stainclear carpets.
Unseen extra include a GRP underskin to the floor, which provides a water-resistant barrier, a 90-litre fresh water tank with manual water fill system and a 70-litre waste water tank.
