Read the Practical Motorhome review for the expert verdict on the Adria 4Twin
The rear side windows are darkened and double-glazed windows; Adria was the first imported brand to meet with NCC motorhome approval. It has white front bumpers, with a grey insert around the grille, and a black rear bumper. There are minimal splashes of graphic colour along its sidewalls. The gas locker is on board, in the back of the kitchenette.
High-tops can mostly be used all year round, and with the Adria having onboard fresh-water tanks, it’s a possibility.
Step inside the 4Twin and you’d think you’d walked into a compact coachbuilt. There’s a twin dinette up front on the nearside, a kitchenette on the offside, a corner washroom and, uniquely for a camper conversion, longitudinal bunk beds at the rear.
On the road
The Ducato cabin feels rather commercial with its plain fascia, lack of cab carpet and shortage of drinks holders for the cab occupants. With a twin dinette rear of the cab, only the driver’s seat swivels. The 4Twin prototype came with cab air conditioning. At under 6m long, it has a short footprint and will pose no parking problems in terms of length.
There are two belted, forward-facing rear passenger seats and a twin dinette, but the rear seats are very upright and the squab cushions tend to slide around in transit.
Lounging & dining
The Adria’s table, which is stored in a locker over the cab seats, clips to a wall rail, too. Also, with the sliding door open, the table can be removed and clipped to another rail at the rear of the kitchenette so you can sit outside and use it as a picnic table.
There’s a grill with spark ignition and an old-style Dometic RM4231 fridge-freezer sitting alongside its kitchen unit. Altogether, it’s enough to boil an egg or cook kippers for your breakfast, but not much else.
A curtain draws across behind the cab seats, but there’s no privacy curtain for the occupants of the bunk beds. They both have large, child-friendly push-button lights.

A quart in a pint pot, with bunk beds large enough to sleep teenagers, at a brilliant starting price
- Sleeps four in a unique and serviceable layout
- Lounging area is rather cramped; you won't be cooking any gourmet feasts in the kitchen
