There’s no doubt that good things can come in small packages but in the case of the Adria Twin 500 S, we do wonder how they managed to fit it all in. There’s a lot: two berths, a four-seater lounge, kitchen and washroom – all on a body length of five metres (16’3″). 

With its twin sliding doors, the Twin 500 S was one of several compact campers with doors on both sides that debuted at the October 2014 NEC show in Birmingham. It instantly removed one common objection to buying a Continental panel van conversion, that of having to unload passengers through the offside door. Now that process can be carried out in safety on the nearside.
