This year Adria is bringing something fresh to the table with a new-generation Adora range which has had a total redesign, been upgraded for the new season and future holidays.

The Adora has been a best seller for Adria year after year, but that has not stopped the design team from reevaluating what can be done to strive for even more perfection on board. Adria firmly believes that the new 2021 Adora range has been taken to the next level and is in fact the first in a new generation of caravan.

Taking what was learnt from the new Astella range, Adria were able to create something new and special that has improved comfort, practicality, technology and performance. The Adora now features the largest in-line panoramic window available and is also the most aerodynamic caravan you can buy.

The new-generation Adora has been created by, what Adria is calling, its 'five stories'. Inspired design, inside and out, with a clean new Adria silhouette and flowing living spaces inside are the areas that have been focused on to deliver something new and exciting.

Adria took Adora signature features, such as the extra-large panoramic window and improved upon them, as well as adding features like the new wind-diffusers, which help towing.

The interior of the Adora provides a contemporary living space and a home-style feeling for a unique premium caravan experience. In the past some vans, from many manufacturers, have stuck very close to that 'caravan look'.

Adria have also added some inspired solutions including details of the new kitchen and bathroom. What's more, you can use the Adria smart application - Adria MACH, for an easier way of life.

The Adora development story

The new Adora development started at the same time as the Astella range, with many of the same team of designers and engineers. This meant shared learning, best practices and many details from the Astella brought into the Adora project.

This new touring van is being dubbed the most aerodynamic caravan on the market. The touring van features an all-new exterior shape, with inline extra-large panoramic window, integrated lighting, storage and awning profile.

Adora offers four layouts for season 2021. To see the Adora and its fill list of specs, lick herel.

The Adora lineup continues with existing layouts; Isonzo, Seine and the six-berth Sava with an additional central bed layout the Tiber. As of this time the Tiber is still in development and is expected to be launched later in the season.

During the Adora's inception and production Adria set up five stories guiding its development to show the market that this new caravan had a totally new creation strategy.

1.Inspired design

The design team looked at the existing Astella, took key aspects of the range and introduced them to the Adora to create this new-generation model.

Erna Povh, Adria's Caravan Product Manager has said, ''You'll see the design direction from the ground-breaking Astella, with really clean lines, automotive appearance and the rear wall with integrated new full LED multifunctional light.

"It has an elegant new front shape with even bigger panorama and innovative new aerodynamic aids, including wind diffusers for improved towing efficiency. Inside out full of smart and home-like features. Designed to fully enjoy your holidays."


New exterior design, with integrated features and more usable interior volumes.

New extra-large in-line panoramic window for atrium-style living, on most layouts.

Large flowing living spaces for comfortable living, with elegant interiors.

Easy access with integrated storage.

2. Signature features

Previous Adora models have featured a large, perhaps the largest, panoramic window available in any caravan. The new in-line design is larger and brings in an abundance of light which creates 'atrium-style living'.

New LED lights

New full LED multifunctional rear lights for automotive style and functionality.

New aerodynamic wind diffusers

This final innovative feature aids wind diffusion and is based on learning from the Astella. Designed with Adria's aerospace partners, they look stylish and help towing efficiency.

Adria MACH

Adria's remote smart control app controls all major functions from a smartphone, monitors and predicts energy and water usage, provides navigation and POI data and Mobile Office functions. So this is a really handy tool and quite like anything else out there.

3. Adora home-style feeling

The new generation brings a feeling of home with elegant interiors with bigger spaces, new softer, more integrated forms and a special home-style ambiance.


. Elegant interior with large flowing living spaces and contemporary chic décor.

. New lighting system for controllable ambiance in all living spaces.

. Atrium-style living with an extra-large panoramic window on most layouts.

. New sound system with hidden speakers.

. Organised storage throughout with dedicated spaces for personal items.

. Heating by Alde for all year-round comfort. Adora offers two choices of textile (Misty Rose and Stone Island)

4. Adora contemporary living spaces

The Adora's inspired living spaces mean everything is designed around the way you want to live.

Living Room

With the largest panoramic window now available you are now presented with 'atrium-style' living, with great natural light and controllable shading and ventilation. The new seating and dinette design offers improved comfort and flexible living space. Easier bed set up and under-dinette storage should help with storage and make bedtime less hassle.


The new kitchen design has been inspired by the kind of kitchens you'd find in homes, not so much the typical touring cook space. More worktop space, which for me is a must have, more storage including capacious split drawers and of course high-end onboard appliances.


New bedroom designs, with all formats of bed, each with higher beds and Evopore ® mattresses for extra comfort. Controllable lighting ambiance and plenty of storage.


New bathroom featuring extra space, new lighting and innovative storage.

5. Adora inspired solutions

Everything has been reviewed and improved, with innovative new solutions for inspired living and maximum permitted weight loading as standard.


On board you will find a new digital controller and a wider range of multimedia entertainment solutions, including a new high-quality sound system with hidden speakers, bluetooth amplifier, TV point and holder, and multiple USB ports in the living room and bedroom.
