This review is based purely on comparing the 2019 Elddis 574 with the same single bed layout from some other manufacturers. Based on our research and shopping around and closely looking at what is on offer we have concluded the Elddis 574 is just what we are looking for. Anyone who has ever bought a caravan will know it is always about making a compromise. If you gain a bit of space or a nice feature in one part of the caravan it usually means you will have lost it in another. However, we found the Elddis Affinity 574 provided everything we were looking for in a very well laid out package.
The interior is very stylish and the dark wood tones make a very bold statement and are complimented very well by contrasting light finishes and fabrics. Other manufacturers did not match the Affinity 574 for decor and style. The finishes are typical of the caravan market and we found little bits from different manufacturers that if combined would have made the perfect caravan for us. For example a flush fitting worktop over the glass hob cover provided some additional work space in the kitchen. Only useful when the hob is not being used but it was easy to lift and stand along with the glass hob cover and is a feature for Elddis consider adopting I think. We liked that Elddis has not used light weight folding blinds as doors in this model. The wooden doors in the bedroom, toilet and lounge are very nice and give the van a much more solid feel.
Outside the caravan looks very stylish and well finished. Again we liked the appearance when comparing it to rivals.
It is acknowledged this review is based purely on shopping around for a single axle fixed single bed caravan. However, having taken some time to compare what is out there we kept coming back to the Elddis, mainly based on its appearance, inside and out, and the fact the standard of finish was better than some and as good as others. We also felt it was keenly priced compared to others and for those reasons we have decided we will most likely go for the 2019 Elddis Affinty 574.
If so we will make the effort to come back on here and submit a more comprehensive and informative review based on our experience in actually owning one of these lovely caravans. At the moment my 5 star rating is based on how much we like the layout and the appearance inside and out. I hope that if we go ahead and buy this caravan it proves to be well made and exceeds our expectations in terms of quality and reliability.
Over to you to do your bit now Elddis!!
