This caravan looks has a commanding presence whether being towed on the road or sited on a touring pitch.

The sprung seating is upholstered in an attractive and high quality fabric in neutral tones, and is complemented by matching curtains, scatter cushions, arm rests and 45oz deep-pile drop in carpets, over a wood-block effect floor. The lounge seating can be used as two small single beds or converted into a large double utilising a pull out slat/track system. There is also a chest of drawers with self-closing mechanism with a fold-out coffee table.
