    Hi there campers.
    We have brought Adria estella rio grande glam edition.we went away for the first time and feel very disappoint.
    We are having problems with the heating – taking alone time to heat up on electric we have selected 3 kW even tried it on gas- the van is warm but there is no heat at the vents even when we turn it up to 30 degrees. We have had a looked at the Aldi insturtions but says nothing about how long it takes to warm up. We know that there is a booster on the shower and we have to wait 30 mins to make sure the water is hot enough but the hot water is not enough to take a shower ,is there a add on boiler that we can get do that we can use the shower ?
    Any help or advice would be great

    Just picked ours up, love the caravan , shame it is full of niggly bits not quite the standard I thought Adria would send out. Overhead cupboards none of the catches line up, full of sawdust in the bottom storage areas, broken vent on the outside and most of the storage lockers catches or locks line up. Having said all the above I can fix these but at £25k why should I have too ?

    I am new to the world of caravanning, but decided to go to extremes when purchasing one, I was looking at an Eterniti slide out, did lots of research, went to see the vans at various shows, then because of their poor build quality & finish decided to look else where. (I’m a joiner by trade) Went to the NEC show in Oct and went straight to Adria, loved the Glam, did the deal & bought it. Picked it up from Tenby tourers, (Great team) in Feb and been out in it with around 6 times…. Absolutely love it, build quality, finish, design, layout, Kitchen… And certainly feel very proud when towing it. (You do need a large 4×4) and people are always walking past on the sites and giving it a second look..or should I say a long stare..!! mind you it is fitted with a auto Satellite, E&P levelling system, solar panel, Love the van, and a big thumbs up to Adria.. If you want a total change in caravanning, have a look at the Adria range. One happy Caravanner. Bring on the summer/winter

  5. John & Sheila Case says:

    Adria’s build quality is simply stunning too – not just ‘Glam!’. We bought a 2013 Adria Trent at the end of 2012 – never having considered an Adria before seeing it, and continue to be amazed at the high quality of the construction, fixtures and fittings.
    Pity the Caravan (members, remember!) Club seems to largely ignore the Adria caravan range, just whom are they protecting?
    Kind regards, John & Sheila.

    Hi Nigel is correct in saying it is the European model.. Would be interested if any one of your readers have got a astella glam I have one and think is great. 07971582145 if anyone would like to get in touch. O an caravan guard keep up the good work I like you reads.

  7. Nigel Bird says:

    Just to let you know that the details you have on this page are incorrect, you are showing the European model, not the uk.
    I did call the office to notify your marketing dept and was expecting a call.
    But no call?

    • Hi Nigel,

      I hope you’re well.

      We did get to the bottom of this after your initial conversation with a Contact Centre Adviser.

      Basically the model shown here (reviewed here in the UK) is a prototype. It has elements of both the UK and European version, the main differences being a separate oven and grill above fridge, no microwave and no blinds between the kitchen and lounge.

      We make note of this in the article where it says: Please note: Interior and exterior specification may vary from pictures shown

      We’ve confirmed this with Adria and are happy to leave the review as it is.

      Many thanks for getting in touch.

    Exceptional design and practicality, like all good ideas you look and think why did it take so long for someone to design it? The ultimate that could only be improved by adding a slide out to the living room and bedroom space thereby creating a walk around access from both sides double bed with access to the bathroom and of course a twin axle.
    Now I know what the future holds for caravan.
    Adria get a massive 95/100 from me and Attention, Interest, Desire and as soon as I can afford it Action to buy!
