It’s four years since the Explorer Group reintroduced the Compass brand and, while its ranges have their followers, it has struggled to establish the mass-market appeal of its Elddis-badged stablemates. That’s in part because the waters surrounding the sibling brands were a little muddied, with the Compass lines perhaps lacking the clear identities of the Elddis Avanté, Affinity and Crusader.

For 2017 Explorer has pulled off a neat trick, giving the brand an injection of character, while simultaneously aligning its ranges more closely – in spec terms – with sister Elddis caravans. That means three ranges rather than two, with the Compass Corona and Rallye replaced by the entry-level Casita, mid-market Capiro and this, the Camino, a four-strong Compass incarnation of the luxurious Elddis Crusader.

As well as a new name and a new look – most notable on the Camino with its aluminium sidewalls in a stylish metallic blue – there are new layouts, too, the most exciting of which is undoubtedly the twin-axle 660. It features a central washroom and a rear transverse island bed. And to see other Compass caravans for sale, click here.
