The news that Elddis would be resurrecting Compass for 2014 – some four years after it discontinued the brand – certainly came out of the blue.

Three ranges were launched, the entry-level Corona, the mid-market Omega and the upmarket Rallye, giving a total of 12 new models, all featuring layouts that will be popular with buyers. The Compass Rallye 574 offers a premium-package interpretation of the fashionable fixed twin-single-beds floor plan.

All Compass caravans use Al-Ko chassis and running gear. This differentiates them from Elddis products, which run on BPW.
