The Adora 542’s layout will fit the bill for friends who tour together and couples who prefer single beds.

It provides two fixed single beds, which are larger and more comfortable than using the lounge as twin singles. Behind the beds is an end-washroom and the front of the van is home to a side-kitchen and lounge. All this is packed into a single-axle van with an MTPLM of 1500kg.

The van we took away was a 2009 model, but aside from tweaks to the external graphics, little has changed for 2010. Priced at £13,000 at launch, the Adora is marketed as a mid-level van. However, some of the equipment you would expect to be standard in a van of this price, including carpets and a microwave, are missing.
