We've a 2013 Adria 542DT and love it. Easy to tow, durable GRP sides and great bathroom. The only things ours lacks they have added for 2014.
Dual fuel heating
Additional kitchen work top
We've fitted all these now plus a powrtouch mover and shock absorbers.
Any questions please ask, we would recommend Venture caravans to buy from. They have their own special editions which ours is, with additional spec over std models. Most important one is Alko stabiliser.
We've got the same as checkley and also love it! Yes they have put some differences in place in the 2014 but I'm not so sure these add up to the £1200 price increase. The only real differences I see are the electric heating element on the fire and the larger roof light. They have swapped the sattellite system for the status aerial which are about the same price.
HOWEVER, I do think that the price of the 2013 models were cheap for what we got, £13,990 for a brand new caravan with ALKO 3004, spare wheel, satellite system, fitted motor mover, carpets and other bits, not to mention the 10 year water ingress warranty is a really great price!
The price increase to £15,190 brings the Adria Sportline DT in to line with other brands of caravan with comparative specification and I would still recommend one to anyone for many reasons (one being the huge bunks) the addition of the 7 berth option and the new 6 berth layout are also worth a look.
I would also recommend going to see the guys at Venture Caravans, they are fantastic! Their sales people and other staff are lovely, helpful and can't do enough to help. We've had after sales contact with them on a couple of occasions for 1 very minor/newbie problem and another in relation to the fridge. I can honestly say that the staff went beyond the call of duty to help us out. We've found them a great company to deal with and will probably travel the extra to get ours serviced by them although there are a couple of Adria approved servicers closer to us.
