Buyers are almost spoilt for choice when it comes to entry-level caravans, and the Xplore range from the Explorer Group (makers of Elddis, Compass and Buccaneer) is right at the core of that choice. It’s easy to see why, too. With their smart looking bodies, built using the SoLiD method of construction, and shaped windows, they belie their entry-level status.

Newly introduced for 2016, the six-berth 586 took the gong in the ‘Best Tourer for Large Families’ category at our Tourer of the Year Awards 2016, where the judges were impressed by most aspects of the caravan, from its all up weight which makes it fall within the capabilities of many MPV tow cars, to its fixed bunks and spacious washroom, not to mention its “terrific value”. 

Let’s have a more in-depth look at the Xplore 586 to understand why it was a deserved winner. And to see other Xplore caravans for sale, click here.
