ELDDIS CRUSADER SUPER SIROCCO
?The elegance and quality of the Super Sirocco?s living accommodation creates a relaxing and welcoming environment.?
The Elddis Crusader Super Sirocco is a large twin-axled tourer ideal for four active adults and being part of the Elddis top-end range, it affords unbridled luxury and features that make modern-day caravanning a delight.
The layout of the Crusader Super Sirocco provides lounge seating in the contemporary L-shaped configuration and a large and well-equipped kitchen area in the front half of the caravan. The rear half of the Super Sirocco features a fixed double bed and a full width washroom at the rear.
On the outside, the Crusader Super Sirocco appearance is rather imposing with its steeply raking front profile and upright rear panel. An unusual feature is the full-length window in the rear bedroom that adds a bit of originality to the design instead of the rather uniform configurations adopted by most other manufacturers.
What is most striking on entering the Elddis Crusader Super Sirocco is just how big it feels inside. Compared to other four-berths, for space and accommodation this caravan is up there with the very best. If you intend to tour for any considerable length of time and look to cater for yourselves, then the Crusader Super Sirocco with its ingenious use of space and innovative ideas should be top of your list. The Chinchilla glass hob and sink covers, for example, can double-up as additional work top space.
The Crusader Super Sirocco comes with optional alloy wheels and the advanced Swing V-Tec axle-chassis system from BPW. This is one of the very best in the industry providing reliability and stability over extended periods and terrains. Inside, the storage space available is more than adequate for four adults. Apart from the many kitchen cupboards, overhead lockers and the wardrobe situated in the centre of the caravan, there is additional space available beneath the front lounge seats. The flexible seating arrangements afforded by the ?L? shaped configuration allows for four adults to eat together with enough elbowroom not to compromise the efforts of the cook.
The elegance and quality of the Super Sirocco?s living accommodation creates a relaxing and welcoming environment. The double-axled versions of the Crusader range feature their own exclusive beige tartan fabrics and complimented by deep red occasional cushion and curtains, it creates a very elegant living room. The extensive use of wood throughout the interior of the caravan reinforces the stylish nature of its design and classic appeal, yet the designers have included the modern day features of a stereo radio/CD player along with 12volt eyeball reading lights and Status directional TV aerial.
Cooking, Sleeping and Washing
The kitchen facilities of the Crusader Super Sirocco cater for all requirements. The standard features include a Dometic RM6291 90-litre power fridge, microwave oven, Argente stainless steel linen effect, scratch resistant hob, sink and drainer. All these appliances are neatly and unobtrusively accommodated and there are ample power points for all the appliances required to create a gastronomic delight.
The Crusader Super Sirocco sleeps four in hotel-style comfort having one double bed in the lounge and a fixed double in the middle compartment. A useful sliding door effectively creates two separate private sleeping compartments, one with its own on suite facilities.
The rear washroom features a full length enclosed shower and Thetford electronic toilet. The washbasin is neatly and practically located in the fixed bed compartment separate from the shower and toilet. The shower system is fed by a Truma Ultrastore water heater ensuring a constant flow of hot water.
The Elddis Crusader Super Sirocco is an impressive twin-axle touring caravan. Its greatest appeal is its clever design, luxurious appointment and practical layout. A combination not always easily found in the upper echelons of the quality caravan market.
