Practical Caravan's expert team reviews every model in the new for 2014 Elddis Affinity range, hoping to build on the great success of its predecessors

The Elddis Affinity range of upper mid-market caravans was only launched 12 months ago and has been a big success, so Elddis has left it largely unchanged for 2014. All five models are retained, with detail improvements.

External graphics get a little tickle, while the interiors benefit from a Heki 2 rooflight and an Alde heating touch-screen controller. The TV set no longer comes as standard, but there are several additions: a larger entrance door-mounted waste bin, two extra reading lights in the front lounge and new dovetail drawers with metal runners. 

Practical Caravan says...

"This was one of 2013’s best ranges and spawned our current Tourer of the Year, the Affinity 540, so there was little need to tinker for 2014. The detail changes will prove popular – especially the new Alde heating controller and the extra reading lights in the lounge. Prices have risen by only 1.5% on average."
