Makes a realistic proposition on the 3.5-tonne chassis but it’s let down by the size of its washroom and the design of its kitchen.
Good payload on 3.5-tonne chassis
Poorly executed washroom and kitchen.
The layout is simple – there’s a half dinette with an extendable table with in-fill sections. There’s lots of daylight through the cab sunroof (optional, but in our view essential) as well as rooflights elsewhere. There are press-studs to fix the carpet in place.
Unlike corner-bed models, you don’t have the remaining corner space for the washroom and there is often a corridor effect by the kitchen which Adria hasn’t been able to avoid. The Coral has an L-shaped kitchen and en-suite washroom. The washroom has a separate shower and toilet (and a third bedroom sink).
You get a large, L-shaped kitchen in the Coral. Sadly, there’s an impractically high oven/grill on top of the large fridge-freezer. The Coral has a small worktop due to the shape of its hob, and it is hard to reach because it’s tucked into the corner. But there is a small bin, under a hatch in the worktop. Electicity sockets are below the worktop, to the left of the hob, so an electric cable would have to cross the hob – not too sensible.
The Coral’s en-suite shower, separate toilet and corner bedroom sink is convenient, but the toilet is cramped and the shower, although spacious, loses floor space due to the intrusion of the rear wheel arch.
The Coral offers room to sit up straight in bed and has adjustable, split-mattress backrests. The backrests are too cumbersome to adjust while you’re in bed, but are ideal if you want to turn the bedroom into a second lounge space.
The external locker is a fair size and good shape. Inside, the Coral has a wardrobe either side of the bed, with a slim hanging rail at the entrance to the bedroom. The amount of locker space is pretty good, as is under-bed storage: deep storage space beneath the bed though bed base is supported by a makeshift-looking piece of dowel rod.
