Most caravan manufacturers in the UK use the Al-Ko chassis for the basis of their tourers, but Elddis Caravans are proud to be different.

The Durham-based 'vanmakers are the only major brand in the UK to work with German chassis builder BPW instead and have been explaining why they have chosen the alternative technology.

Claiming that their exclusive partnership gives them a superior chassis to every other caravan on the market, Elddis says that the BPW Swing Vtec technology makes hitching and towing both easier and safer.

Offering a cantilever design, the Swing Vtec is said to improve stability and cornering to provide smoother towing as the axle swings towards the road surface when turning to maximise tyre contact with the road.

All Elddis Crusader models and every tourer from the luxury Buccaneer range come with the BPW Intelligent Drive Control (iDC), which is also an optional extra on the Avante and Odyssey ranges.

Acting as an electronic stability programme would in a car, the BPW iDC reduces critical snaking when driving while preventing brakes locking with its Failsafe technology.
