CAR­AVE­LAIR

Practical Caravan - - Showroom 2019 Tourer Preview -

The French Car­ave­lair brand, part of the Trig­ano Group, has its An­tarès range sold in the UK through fel­low Trig­ano Group sub­sidiary Mar­quis Leisure. For 2019, An­tarès con­tin­ues in the UK with the same six lay­outs – the two-berth 335, four-berth 406, 455, 480 and 485, and the six-berth 496. How­ever, not in­tro­duc­ing new lay­outs has given Car­ave­lair the chance to work on the out­side of the vans.

New con­struc­tion

For 2019, all mod­els comes with new front and rear pan­els, with the aim of mak­ing them look more mod­ern. They have also been put to­gether us­ing a new sys­tem of con­struc­tion, known as IRP, which is de­signed to pro­vide bet­ter in­su­la­tion and pro­tec­tion. This in­volves XPS in­su­la­tion, an ex­tra-firm hy­dropho­bic foam; a com­bi­na­tion of wood and com­pos­ite for walls, roof and floors to com­bine the longevity of com­pos­ite with the stur­di­ness of wood; and a pro­tec­tive hail-proof GRP skin. Car­ave­lair says that all of this has been achieved with­out adding greatly to cost or the over­all weight of the van.
