Caravanners with young families demand more flexibility from their vans on their caravan holidays: options for lots of kids, or for bringing guests on holiday. This has led to tourers such as the Xplore 526 from the Explorer Group. The entry-level brand was introduced in 2008, and for 2015 it takes the range up to six models with the demise of the four-berth 530 and the return of the double-lounge 434.

The rakish front panel and sporty graphics of these affordable caravans give a fresh look – and lots of tweaks have made them more usable.
