When the Elddis Xplore 505 was launched for the 2013 model year, Practical Caravan immediately recognised that it was one of the most interesting budget-price family tourers. 

The Xplore features parallel seats in the front lounge, an offside dinette that converts into a single bed, two fixed bunks, a small washroom in the nearside corner, and a good-size nearside kitchen. It is designed for a family of five, but the layout promises to be fairly flexible for a family of four, because the side dinette need not be converted at night, and provides space for children’s quiet play. 

The 505 is built using Elddis’s groundbreaking ‘SoLiD’ construction method. It also undercuts rival tourers on price and weight.
