Here, we review the Dethleffs Nomad 560 SB as a seasonal tourer. Wide-body caravans have been legal in the UK since 2010, but they remain uncommon. Only the Slovenian Adria Astella is built for the UK volume market. (We classify Bailey‘s Retreat caravans as semi-statics, not tourers.)

Practical Caravan’s test team found this 2012 Dethleffs Nomad 560 SB available at a discounted price of £19,995 from Lowdhams Leisureworld, but Lowdhams is no longer the UK agent for Dethleffs, so you’ll have to hunt around for this model. It’s worth it, though, if you’re looking for a roomy caravan as a seasonal tourer.

The Dethleffs Nomad 560 SB features a U-shaped front lounge, a fixed bed and an end washroom, with the entrance door on the offside, and comes with a comprehensive spec that you’d expect from a German-built tourer.
