The Affinity sits in the middle of the Explorer Group’s Elddis range, but boasts a specification to rival many up-market offerings. Manufactured using Explorer’s SoLiD construction methods which include a GRP underskin to the floor, these caravans should be durable.

For the 2016 season, the emphasis has been on evolution rather than revolution, concentrating on making an already great range of caravans even better. Despite adding more kit, somehow Explorer has managed to shave weight (in the 530’s case, 23kg off the MiRO) across the range, and all Affinity caravans weigh in at under 1500kg MTPLM.

One of the most notable additions for 2016 is the ‘Stargazer’ rooflight (measuring 1.4m x 0.44m), which replaces last year’s Heki. Here we look at the 530, which although marketed as a three-berth tourer, is probably aimed more at couples. And to see other Elddis caravans for sale, click here.
