Among a clutch of new models in the Avante range for 2017, one stands head and shoulders above the rest as an ideal van for larger families (who may not be ready for the super-size 8ft-wide Avante 866). The clever sleeping arrangements mean that should you have four children they can all sleep in their own individual bed. Thanks to this layout, the bathroom is also impressively large. The kitchen has plenty of room to prepare a family meal, which you can enjoy together in the spacious lounge. Bright upholstery and light wood give the 586 real appeal. If you think that this layout sounds familiar, you are right. The Avante 586 is in fact an up-specced version of last year's Practical Caravan winner, the Xplore 586. The fact that this is the Company's third consecutive win in this Family Caravan category suggests that the County Durham-based firm really does understand what large families need.

The space in this caravan is great. The bathroom is a great size and everything is super modern & fresh looking. There are 7 plug sockets which is more than any other van make we looked at. All the overhead cupboards have auto lock which is brilliant.
There is lots of storage space and under seat storage is ample. The beds are extremely comfortable.
There are only 2 flaws I've found with the caravan which we've only noticed as we've been living in it.
The first...when the door is open, you can't have the kitchen window open! And in the awning...if you have a wheel draught cover, the little stick on hooks mean when you open the door you get a dent in your door...like we have. Little things but they do make a big difference!
