The Explorer Group relaunched the Compass brand four years ago, choosing to retail it through different dealerships to those selling its Elddis models. But the Compass marque gets a real shake-up for the 2017 touring season: gone are the Corona and Rallye line-ups, and in their place are three new ranges. The Capiro and Camino have four models in their stable, while the Casita has six, two of which – the 840 and 866 – are 8ft (2.43m) wide.

It’s interesting how layouts rise and fall in popularity: the 840 is the only Compass caravan to sport the once-ubiquitous nearside fixed bed. Twin fixed beds continue to feature, but it’s the island bed that’s current currency for manufacturers. The 554, reviewed here, has a transverse island bed and an end washroom – let’s see if it works! And to see other Compass caravans for sale, click here.
