Explorer - Elddis Crusader 2008

Explorer Group at 2007 HERCMA Lawns Caravan Show

Written by CaravanGuy on 2007-09-15

Elddis were present at the HERCMA Lawns caravan show with all three ranges of caravans, Avante Club, Odyssey and Crusader, all showing in different sizes and specs. Here we are looking at what Elddis' finest high end caravan has to offer and whether it is worth the extra cash. For best effect wait for the images to finish loading before clicking on them.

The Elddis Crusader series of caravans differs slightly from the other caravans in the Elddis range as there is one price for all of the different floor plans. The Crusader is the high end of the Elddis range and aims to cater for the consumer that requires more mod cons for their touring caravans. Some of these features are fixed beds, digitally controlled fridge freezer and pneumatic bed lifts (will come back to these) to name just a few. The overall feel of these Elddis touring caravans is in keeping with the Odyssey and Avante Club but with more room.

The pneumatic bed lifts I mentioned earlier arent seen on too many caravans at present due to the added weight and cost they add to a caravan but I am happy to report that they were present on the Supercylone version of the Elddis Crusader that I was lucky enough to have a look round. These lifts make it easy to lift up the mattresses on teh fixed beds, you really need it with these mattresses as they are large and heavy.

The fixed twin beds in the Crusader were a very good size for even a tall adult, width was also a non-issue as they would be ideal for most adults. The fixtures and fittings were more than adequate with a very large fridge, for a tourer, with a decent sized separate freezer compartment, also in the kitchen, the oven was a good sized for cooking meals for upto 4 people also the grill was in its own separate part so as to not interrupt the oven user when it is needed.

That is the end of our coverage on the Explorer Group for today but we will have more articles on the Explorer Group coming tomorrow, this time focusing on the Buccaneer range and what their new range of touring caravans has to offer.
