Compass returned to the market in September 2013. It’s a brand that dates back to the 1970s, but parent company Elddis discontinued it in 2009. However, it reversed that decision for the 2014 season, arguing there was not enough choice for caravan buyers.

Elddis promised that the new line-up would not comprise badge-engineered versions of existing models, and launched three ranges: the entry-level Corona, the mid-priced Omega and the luxury Rallye. We’re looking at the Rallye 554, which features a full-width end washroom and a transverse island bed. It’s the ultimate luxury layout that was introduced to single-axle tourers only in recent years.
