At a glance:

Design

You get a lot of caravan with the Acadia range, and there’s a lot to justify your outlay if you’re buying new. Sandwich construction and insulation all round means it’ll handle the miles and any weather worries you may have; it’s even been cold chamber tested for EN1645 Grade 3 classification. AL-KO ATC offers peace of mind on the road and the Whale external gas BBQ point ensures there will be plenty of happy faces on the pitch. The 575 single-axle island bed model, for example, also makes use of the under-bed space courtesy of a storage area that’s accessible from a hatch on the exterior. You’ll also find this on the 630, 660 and 675.

Living

The light and airy living area is updated for 2022 with an upholstery upgrade that proves the beige stereotypes of yesteryear’s caravanning is long gone. The stylish light tones are also followed through across the marble worktops in the kitchen area, too. Natural light floods in through beautifully-tinted panoramic sunroofs and perfectly-placed Heki lights along with plenty of window illumination on either side. This means that yes, you get the light flooding in, but find a spacious pitch and you’ve got so much greenery and nature to look out on as you kick back.

Dining

Dining is a breeze with plenty of prep space and storage, and the two-tone finish ups the style stakes. The Dometic 10.5XS series 9.2-litre fridge freezer is ideal for everything that needs a chill. In the bigger 630, 660 and 675 you’ll find an uprated 133-litre model for extra space. The Russell Hobbs microwave positioning still holds out a little accessibility issue in that it’s head height, meaning that retrieving hot food can be problematic for anyone suffering mobility issues. In the Acadia 520, step in through the door and you’re immediately faced with a side dinette and table that’s ideal for snacking or meal time (plus the bonus of it converting into a bed as well). Of course, there’s a freestanding table for the sofa space up front, too. Along with the additional kitchen space from an extendable worktop, the options for both creating and consuming culinary delights make this tourer a top choice for anyone that enjoys eating in instead of restaurant visits.

Sleeping

The double bed in the 660 is tucked away in its own corner bedroom space, which will really make the difference when you’re looking for home from home living. Here, there’s plenty of space to remove the need for making up a bed every night, and it can double up as chill out space in the day if one of you want to read or watching something while the other person hangs out in the front of the caravan. Other fixed bed models include the 545 (rear island), the 565 (twin singles), and transverse islands in the 575 and the 675 Xtra. There’s always the option of a make-up bed at the front of the tourers (in both twin sofa and L-shaped sofa set-ups), as well as dinettes that convert in some models if you’ve got company or fancy a change.

Washroom

The washrooms in the range look and feel great. Plenty of mirror coverage, stylish sinks and enough storage and shelving (in both the room and the shower cubicle) for even the highest levels of primping and preening. Downsides are the wardrobes and clothing drawers housed in the washroom, but without this you’d be sacrificing space elsewhere. Taking one example, the 575 model’s rear bathroom has Alde central heating running through into the towel rail here, too, so the dual benefit of comfort and quick-dry practicality is a big win. Another great plus to having an end washroom is there’s no chance of elbow-bashing in the shower, as the space is massive to prep for the day or unwind after your hours of exploring and adventuring.
Expert rating: 3/5

Value for money

It’s the same argument when considering any new versus new purchase… The tourers are pricey but will be an absolute steal in a season or two from new. That said, with prices between £24,535 for the Acadia 460, and £30,785 for the 675 Xtra, there’s not bad option on the market if you’re looking for something that’s yours from the get go.
Expert rating: 4/5

Why buy?

From a two-berth caravan (the Acadia 460) to the twin axle five-berths (630 Xtra and 660 Xtra), there’s something for any touring fan regardless of experience. The varied layouts throughout the range make for some tough decisions in which will suit you best, but fresh styling and a range of touches to make your holidays easy and fun mean that the Acadia selection will certainly have what you’re looking for in the years ahead.
