THERE ARE TWO big pieces of news from the County Durham manufacturer.

The first is the launch of the Elddis Autoquest (or Compass Avantgarde) CV80 – the company’s first raising-roof camper. Based on a Fiat Ducato, its roof comes with a new roof light.

The second is the roll-out of Compass-branded motorhomes, which were only reintroduced two seasons ago, to mirror all of Elddis’s ranges – at least for two models.

So along with the Elddis Accordo 105 and 120, you now have the choice of Compass Navigator 105 and 120, and alongside the Elddis Encore 250 and 255, there’s the Compass Concerto 250 and 255. Look out, too, for the new island-bed 150 layout in the Autoquest/Avantgarde ranges.
