Elddis has fitted a brand new heating system to its mid-range Avante collection for 2013, including an under-floor mounted space heater and a rapid heat-up water heater.

Built by Northern Irish company Whale, the new system frees up more space on the inside and saves weight as well.

In this video, we talk to Alan Bateman from Elddis, who explains that this new heater allowed him a lot more freedom when it comes to designing the caravan layout.

We also find out about the Avante's new Watermaster IC, which saves you from ever having to adjust your pressure switch again.

Prices in the Elddis Avante collection start at £14,499 for the two-berth 462 layout, while MTPLM weights range from 1,270kg to 1,639kg
