- NEW Upholstery, curtains and bolster cushions
Following on from the introduction of the panoramic roof light in 2017, Adria redesigned the interior fabrics and upholstery for 2018. Adria have opted with an attractive, darker shade of brown for 2018 and they have also included a blue and green twist into the fabric of the base cushions to create a textured and luxurious feeling. Finally, contrasting bolster cushions and curtains help to finalise the caravans warm, homely feeling.
At the front of the caravan, the front seating area uses two slide-out wooden frames that extend from the seat bases to form a solid foundation on which the backrest cushions are laid to create a flat and comfortable sleeping surface.
The side dinette, located at the rear of the caravan provides the third and fourth sleeping berth. The wall-mounted table unclips to form the base for the lower single bed and a fold-away bunk bed can be unfolded to create another sleeping area - when not required, the bunk bed simply folds away against the wall.
At the rear of the caravan, opposite the side dinette there is a set of two fixed bunk beds. Traditionally, the size of Adria’s fixed bunk beds have superseded those of their British competitors, so space isn't limited. A study clip on aluminium ladder can be attached to create easy access to the top bunk bed, whilst a folding wooden bunk bed guard can be used to ensure that children do not fall out of bed at night. Below the first bunk bed, there is a convenient storage box that can be accesses by lifting the sprung bed base upwards. A concertina door blind has also been fitted to provide the maximum amount of privacy for those sleeping in the bunk beds.
Alongside the bunk bed and side dinette there is another side board with two storage drawers that is ideally located to store children toys or clothes. The overhead lockers in the rear section of the caravan warp around both the side will and end wall to create four good sized overhead lockers.
The bathroom in the Severn is located in the middle of the caravan, opposite the kitchen area. The washroom features a combined shower, Thetford toilet with a fold-away sink located above. The fold-away wash basin forms a part of the vanity unit. The vanity unit includes a concealed medicine cabinet to store all of your toiletries. Alongside the bathroom stands a full height wardrobe with the Truma heater mounted below. The wardrobe features a main compartment with two shelf's and a hanging rails as well as a pull-out drawer beneath.
The central located Kitchen houses a combined Spinflo oven and grill, a Thetford fridge with dedicated freezer and gas-burner hob. The stainless steel hob is integrated into the sink, which allows for easy cleaning and disposal of any spilt food. A chopping board is also supplied and neatly fits within the aperture of the sink to extend the preparation surfaces available.
The kitchen area has a double cupboard overhead with an integrated mugs and plate stand. The overhead cupboard is also pre-wired to accept an optional extra microwave. LED lighting not only provides a warm ambient atmosphere but also provides plenty of light when preparing meals.
Adria have also reduced the size of the dividing wall between the kitchen and dinette area from previous models to ensure that the caravan has an open feeling and isn't divided into smaller spaces.
When you first enter the Adria Altea Severn, the first thing you will notice is the vast amount of light the enters the front seating area though the panoramic roof light, which is dressed in a nice brown leatherette material to mirror the Adora range. The seating area has space for a minimum of five adults, with the additional on the wrap around cushion providing even more space.
At the front of the caravan, there is a mounted fold-away table that can be lifted to conveniently rest your drinks or books without having to use the larger free-standing table. The free-standing table can be used for eating or even playing board games and when not in use it can be easily folded away and stored in a dedicated cupboard next to the oven. Alongside the front seating area there is a small sideboard that hosts two pull-out drawers and provides a sensible location to stand a TV and allows for an uninterrupted viewing experience.
Alongside the table storage cupboard there is also a 12V, 230V and aerial connection point. LED lighting completely illuminates the caravan with a warm, ambient light with LED’s being used as under-cabinet strip lights that run around the caravan. The Severn also features two halogen reading lights.
