Keeping ahead of the contemporary curve
If you live in a modern home, don’t you want a caravan to complement your lifestyle? Look out for a fresh, new, even more contemporary look inside and out for Adria’s Adora models as season 2021 approaches. It will be a four-model line-up.
As well as the looks, a lot of work has gone into the aerodynamics of the body, hence items such as the stylistic grab handles – those at the front are integrated with vertical spoilers that diffuse any wind as you tow. A quick tug will show you how sturdy they are, too.
That rear wall has been given an overhaul, too, and now slopes inwards to the top, again to help with the aerodynamics. There’s also all-new road lighting, including LED tail lights designed for Adria by leading lighting automotive specialist, Hella.
The full-width front locker allows the easiest of access to up to two 11kg gas cylinders as well as the spare wheel (do be wary of noseweights when travelling, of course). Complementing the three-window front design is a larger-than-ever opening sunroof.
There’s more on the outside of the 2021 Adria Adora to note. The locker door to the nearside underbed locker is larger, the corner steadies have extended sockets that are that bit easier to locate, and of course the silver bodywork and broad band of decal along each side.
Inside the new generation 2021 Adria Adora
This new 2021 Adria Adora is real family ‘van, it can accommodate up to six thanks to bunk beds and a rear dinette, beyond which is a full-width washroom
As well as new soft furnishings, again it’s the details you’ll want to seek out. There’s a rail going around much of the Sava, designed for attaching cloth pockets and shelves exactly where you want them.
Much of the lighting is on tracks, too. The mini lights are multi-directional or can be moved to other tracks as you wish – you can even order extra lights to add; also USB sockets.
At the front, choose between U-shaped seating or parallel settees, with a handy flap on the front wall for holding coffee mugs etc.
Those main seat bases also pull together easily enough for the main, double bed. There’s also a free-standing table with dedicated locker storage, although it’s not the largest (bearing in mind the Sava’s family billing).
Where it does score is in the kitchen, where the L-shaped hob and sink combination has become something of an Adria hallmark, coming with a discreet extractor unit for 2021.
It’s incredibly space-efficient, allowing optimal worktop space, in turn complemented by the large storage drawers under a new, slimline worktop. Also under the counter is a useful slide-out locker with chrome baskets that will be ideal for vegetables etc.
Complementing the three-burner hob is a Thetford Midi Prima separate oven and grill, plus one of the two kitchen overhead lockers is home to a microwave oven. To the right of the sink, the fridge has a decent 140-litre capacity. Those overhead lockers also have a stylish curve and with a cream finish they separate the kitchen from the living room.
Clothes storage and more is more than catered for in the large wardrobe unit in the Adora Sava, opposite the kitchen, next to which is a set-up for adding a TV.
The washroom, too, has all the fittings – plus space – with a shower cubicle on the nearside corner, central basin and swivel-bowl toilet on the offside along with an opening window.
Again, there are plenty of neat, practical touches, such as the clothes hanging rail in the shower. Hot water is supplied via Alde’s central heating system.
Bunk beds are always a win-win with young children and these are no exception. They’ve each got their own lighting and opening windows, plus comfortable one-piece mattresses and, for the upper level, a retainer.
This latest Adria Adora Sava caravan might have gained a bit of weight, but it really is as practical and stylish as ever, with added details, for the new generation!
