    We deliberately purchased an Xplore 540 in late 2011 when we saw that Elddis had changed the layout in the new 504. We did not want a wash basin right next to the bed and did want the convector fire which they removed from the new van. I did notice that the hand basin has been moved back to the washroom in the latest model. We use our 540 for four months each year and it has proved comfortable, easy to tow behind our 407sw and, so far, none of the Elddis bits have broken. If we find the cash to up-grade at some time in the future we would happily go with another Xplore, possible the new island bed model.

      Thanks Peter Goddard
      Great to hear from an owner of an Xplore 540. It says a lot that you are keen to upgrade to the latest model.

    Why do you no longer have L shaped lounges in any of your models? At the NEC show I ask one of your salesman this question and his reply was ‘You must be the 400th person I have told today. There is no call for L shaped lounges’. Ummm.

      Hi Steve,

      I’m afraid I’m not really in a position to say why Elddis seem to be steering away from the L-shaped lounge. Did you take your enquiry any further?

    This layout works brilliantly for a family – we’ve got two small children and it makes a lot more sense for us than you might think.

    We keep the front sofa as two singles and then spend our evening in the back of the caravan, which literally feels like an ensuite bedroom with the completely usable toilet/shower room and handy vanity unit. With this layout you can leave the kids in peace and keep them asleep!

    The heating system is everything they say it is – kept us toasty in minus god knows what. The hot water doesn’t last too long, but enough for a couple of quick showers (and we always use the shower as it’s so good!).

    Athough it’s not huge, you’re better off with a tow car bigger than the 1.6 we’ve got – certainly capable, but struggles occasionaly with it.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this Stu. Sounds like you have found the perfect layout for your family.
