Originally launched for the 2008 season, the Xplore range didn’t take off very quickly, but it has gradually strengthened its position in the market.

Now in 2018, it is a well-established, value-for-money caravan brand.

Having dropped the two-berth 402 late in 2016, parent company Elddis has now come back with a new couples tourer – the 422, with an L-shaped end-kitchen layout.

We think this has been a clever move by Elddis – the L-shaped end kitchen has become a popular layout and the 422 offers it in an affordable package, so this model could do well.

Not for nothing is this bargain-priced lightweight our current budget tourer of the year.
