As it has for everyone, lockdown has played havoc with our touring plans over the past few months – and meant that we’ve been unable to take our long-term test vehicles out on the road as we would love to have done.

Meantime, we’ve been busy planning where to go when we’re back on the road, and reflecting on the things that we love – and those we aren’t so keen on – in the Adria Coral 600 SL Axess.

1 At 6.99m long, this ‘van is not huge, but there’s no rear window, so the reversing camera is really handy for on-site manoeuvres.

2/3 There’s lots of storage available beneath the comfortable fixed beds at the rear. They’re a good length, at 2.03m.

4 No fixed door to the washroom, but the silver tambour unit is a clever use of space, as it means that it doesn’t need to open out into the corridor.

5 The garage, which stretches right across the rear of the motorhome, is quite simply enormous, and ideal for storing all of those bits and bobs you don’t want to keep in the ‘van.

6 The hob, which features three burners in a line, frees up an extra bit of workspace – important, as there wouldn’t be a huge amount here otherwise.
