The Practical Motorhome review of the Adria Coral S 690 SP
You get an under-slung waste tank – not ideal for extreme winter use, but at least there's a 12V heater.
The waste outlet, behind the nearside rear wheel, is the most convenient for access to drains, and an extension hose is included. However, the handle looks likely to pick up road dirt because it is just by the wheel.
On the road
The MTPLM is fixed and cannot be upgraded (or downgraded) and stands at 3500kg. The 160 MultiJet engine will provide versatile performance but drinks fuel a bit more than rivals with the lower-powered 130 version.
You get a third, rear-facing lap-belt seat which is fine for short journeys. Our test Coral had optional (but pricey) air-conditioning, and Aguti seats which offer more comfort than the standard Fiat fitments, but there’s no height adjustment for the passenger.
Lounging & dining
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).
Dometic Fridge, 3-burner gas hob, Oven
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.
- Smart bedroom
- Good payload on 3.5-tonne chassis
- Poorly executed washroom and kitchen.
