Hi all, I've got an Adria Optima 400B without a manual. Can anyone out there correct this deficiency?  Thanks.

You could try emailing Adria direct, we had success doing this when we had a caravelair van, or may-be contacting one of dealers in uk. I only know 2, Roundstone Caravans in East Sussex & Broadlane Leisure in Daventry Northamptonshire. But theres bound to one nearer to you.

Good Luck sorry couldn't be of more help

Hi

We have a Optima 500B. I believe the handbooks were not very good. They were just like a promotional leaflet since they were fitted out when they entered the country.

The Adria club is friendly and maybe able to help. But is there something specific you want to know. We may be able to help, although our van has been modified a lot there are a few on here with Optimas.

Enjoy your van.

Shelly

My last caravan was an Optima 400b, and like previously said the handbook was nothing more than a couple of A4 sheets stapled together, basically Thank you for buying an Adria. All the different applianced had their own manuals.

I (obviously) let all the paperwork go when I sold the van, but, as Pigginshelly, if you let me know any specific questions I might be able to help.

They're lovely vans, only sold mine because we needed another bed.

OK guys, thanks very much - looks like I'm not missing much. Have just come across one on eBay (7.?? for a photo copy) don't think I'll bother with that then. Nearly didn't buy it 'cos it's so ugly but glad I did - like you say - great little van. All the best. Del.

I managed to get a full spec manual (176 pages) for the Adria Optima Series which includes the 400b.

It's great as it gives the tech specs for everything, electrics, plumbing, etc.,

I can't quite remember where I downloaded it from but am happy to pass it on to anyone who might benefit. Just message me with your email address.

I've just bought a 1990 400b.

You would need to put your email on here, or get in touch with Admin via the Contact Us tab for them to forward your request to Sinead.

Assuming of course they don't see your request.

XVI yes?

As well is two words!
How does a sage know everything about everything? or does he? or does he just think he does?
Remember, if you buy something you bought it, not brought it.

I sounded so confident didn't I???!!!

I only realised going through it that it's actually quite generic. So there are no specific measurements, no 400b schematics as such and most importantly for me, no awning recommendations or sizes.

That said, it does have a fair bit of detail. I'm happy to forward it on.

Perhaps between the few of us who are now proud Optima 400b owners we could help and support each other in expanding the knowledge base for us all.

If we had anyone with electrical or plumbing know how, we could gather some layman's advice together from what's in the manual.

Similarly DIYers or decorators could lend their advice on the best materials to use for decor and repairs.

It would also great to put our heads together to see if we could find a remedy for the flimsyness of the front locker hood to strengthen it and improve its longevity.

As a good project manager, I'd be happy to compile the research and document everything and add my own bit in terms of all I discover as I refurbish.

What do ye think?

I'll try my ema il here.
