This 2017 Adria Sonic Supreme I 810 SC is a brilliantly realised luxury motorhome that offers plenty of interior space for four and/or a sybaritic lifestyle for two.
It’s devoid of an Achilles Heel, but it will be better-suited to long-haul holidays away, than pootling around narrow country lanes.

Adria has been a serial Gold Award winner in Practical Motorhome’s annual Owner Satisfaction Survey because it builds ’vans that usually delight their owners. It’s as simple as that.
The Slovenian-based manufacturer (now set to become part of the Trigano Group) has been building A-class motorhomes for some time, although this is its first offering on the tandem-axle Fiat Ducato Al-Ko Kober combo.
Currently all Adria A-class offerings are labelled Sonic.
Sonic Axess was the (just-discontinued) compact offering, Sonic Plus models are longer, and the flagship Sonic Supremes boast a very enhanced kit count, including Alde domestic-style radiator central heating.
Supremes have a stunningly contemporary interior ambiance that will appeal to aesthetically aware buyers.
The lounge successfully introduces informal seating by substituting the formal fixed seats’ backrest cushions with those of the soft-filled, over-sized scatter variety
In the front main lounge, it’s immediately apparent that Adria hasn’t just stuck to what it has always done.
Instead it has successfully introduced informal seating by substituting the formal fixed seats’ backrest cushions with those of the soft-filled, over-sized scatter variety.
The permanently mounted island-leg table appeared to be a good compromise size-wise, although I did wonder whether a rectangular shape or one that was smaller – but with extension flaps – might have provided slightly greater flexibility.
The Adria Sonic Supreme I 810 SC’s kitchen is located amidships, with the main run of base- and high-level units on the UK offside, with just the fridge/freezer across the aisle.
Concave fronts to the high-level lockers add to the feeling of spaciousness without noticeably reducing the volume of storage.
There’s a decent amount of worktop, and the ‘golden triangle’ is compact: for newbies, that’s the distances between the stove, sink and fridge/freezer.
Ahead of the boudoir is the centrally placed washroom and shower.
Both can be made en-suite to the bedroom because a sliding door separates them, and a standard side-hinged door isolates this section from the rest of the motorhome.
The arrangement allows for a large dry floor area for those showering to undress and dress in, while the clever duckboard duo adds a seat in the shower.
The luxurious rear boudoir contains an island bed that measures 1.88 x 1.44m (6’2″ x 4’9″), with individual wardrobes and nightstands on both sides.
This bed can be adjusted to make the most of the garage space beneath. Plus, you can raise the head end, making it easy and comfy to sit up in bed and read.
An additional transverse double-bed powers down from the cab ceiling with just a push of a button – it is an impressive 2.0 x 1.37m (6’7″ x 4’6″).
Interior storage provision can be summarised in just one word: lots!
Some practical thinking went into the design stage, with the result that storage is both flexible and varied with a good mix of lockers, cupboards and drawers.
The Adria Sonic Supreme I 810 SC’s generous payload – north of 1000kg – should be sufficient even for the most extended trips.
A storage provision that really floated our boat is the designated wardrobe for the occupants of the forward bed.
