Most caravan heaters take up a lot of interior space, which is especially at a premium in a compact tourer, and for this reason Elddis Caravans has broken from the norm in 2012 and fitted an underfloor heating system to their entry-level Xplore range.

This clever heater is made by Whale and fits underneath the caravan chassis, meaning that a lot of room is freed up inside for storage space.

In this video, CaravanTimes meets David Whitehead from Elddis, who explains why they went for this new system and how easy it is to use.

David also looks at the new Truma rapid heat-up water system, which is also fitted to the best-selling 302 and 204 models.

Prices in the Elddis Xplore collection start from £10,799 rising to £13,599, and MTPLM weights range from just 930kgs up to 1,365kgs.
