Live-intest More 8ft-wide caravans are on the market than ever. Candy Evans took one on a 250-mile round trip Adria Adora 613 We tested the Adora 613 DT Isonzo straight from Adria’s 2018 launch event – managing to remove the trade price sticker before too many people spotted it! At 2.45m wide and 8.25m long, it’s a big beast but felt stable on the motorway, helped by a long draw bar. And it was remarkably unscary to manoeuvre along the lanes of England’s south west. pictures Candy Evans Exterior This is one smart caravan. It attracted ★★★★ plenty of attention on site with its silver sides, sleek graphics and graphite grey mouldings around the front panel. For our test, were fortunate to match it with a silver Audi Q7, which reflected the curves of the Adora. Lounge The large panoramic window is a great ★★★ feature here. It floods the area with light, and the fact that it opens is a bonus. It means there are fewer eye-level cupboards than in some similar caravans, but the benefits certainly At 27ft long and 8ft wide, the Adora 613 DT Isonzo, from Slovenian manufacturer Adria, is an imposingly large van, but looks sleek and streamlined with its silver sides and grey mouldings outweigh the disadvantages and there’s plenty of storage space elsewhere. U-shaped seating allows plenty of space for four to relax in comfort, with a small lift-up table top at the front if you need it. One little niggle here: there’s a cushion at the end of the sofa by the door that’s expected to balance in place with nothing to lean against. It doesn’t. Kitchen You get a very well specified kitchen, ★★★★ with a Thetford grill and oven complementing the three-burner hob and microwave. The backlit splashback is particularly neat.

Clockwise from above: We kept the Adora running for a week off the grid with this solar panel; the transverse double bed is fixed in place, yet you can still walk around it thanks to the van’s extra width; the fridge is almost homesized, with a decent freezer compartment soft-close drawers are large and useful, placed below the now-traditional Adria L-shaped sink and hob unit, along with a pull-out cupboard that has a metal rack for spices, tins and the like. There’s also a tall fridge freezer. We like the work surface arrangement, as it gives a useful space in front of the hob so you can prepare food or get ready to serve up while the hob is in use. There’s a sensibly positioned 230V electric socket here, though some of the other outlets aren’t quite so practically situated. One is low down near the bathroom, and another by the dividing door, with no shelf nearby. There aren’t any by the bed head. Beds and seating ★★★★★ One of the big features of this big caravan is the fixed transverse double bed. The extra few inches of width mean you can get around the foot of this day and night. The comfy mattress is split four ways, so you can lift either side to access the storage space below or lift the head section to let each occupant prop his or her head up. You’ll both get a reading light – along with LED downlighters and other lighting – and your own bedside cabinet for storage, with space on top for that all-important early morning cup of tea. Storage If anything, I’d be a little concerned ★★★★★ about ever using all the storage space in this Adora, with the payload being limited to 195kg. The space under that bed is, as you might expect, significant, and it’s accessible from outside too. There’s a big wardrobe with a hanging rail J Price £22,495 Length 8.25m Width 2.45m MIRO 1,555kg MTPLM 1,750kg Berths 4 We like Spacious feel, smart backlit kitchen splashback, comfort- able bed We dislike Slightly narrow washroom, location of the 230V electrical sockets, annoying end cushion that drops off the sofa! winter 2017 Scottish Caravans & Motorhomes 13
