The end washroom two-berth layout first appeared in mainstream brands in the late 1980s and enjoyed a sales boom through the 1990s. The addition of a spacious dressing-and-shower room brought hotel-type luxury to small tourers. 

The layout’s popularity took a hit with the advent of fixed beds, but a flurry of new designs and lower weights have returned it to the best-seller lists.

Elddis and Swift were at the forefront of the ’90s development of the layout. Here we assess Eldiss’ latest mid-market offering. The Avanté range has a sharp new design for 2013 and boasts Elddis’s new SoLiD construction system.

This model is a compact two-berth that manages to fit in an impressive amount of storage space and a well designed kitchen.
