Great Quality Finish- like a luxury launch.

published

Purchased 2nd hand in 2020.
Permanent double bed conversion
Good gas stove & easy clean
Large fridge freezer
Hot water is fast gas and electric
Twin gas bottle (4.5kg) means we can run them dry before changing.
Water tank is too small - we carry extra 20L plastic Jerry cans in the car.
Fitted a 65L grey water tank to allow access to National Parks
So light that I can move the van up and down the street on my own.
Only complaint would be the radio / CD player is difficult to use.
Purchased for a bargain $20K

Has a few problems.

published

The caravan wiring is not up to spec. There should be heavy gauge wiring for the fridge with 10mm2 to ensure proper operation. This is lacking on our model and consequently the fridge does not stay cold on long trips. Works OK on gas and 240v, but not on 12v power. Is it too hard to get this correct from the start? We are now back to our dealer to get remedial work done, both on the van and the tow vehicle.

Purchased in June 2016.

No Spare Parts

published

Warning do not buy and overseas import as parts are not available, not even a rim for a tyre. Adria has a shocking reputation for supplying parts. Apollo who are the dealers in Brisbane are totally useless. If you buy one of these brands such as Adria be prepared to have no backup at all.

Purchased in May 2008.

Excellent value for money

published

Light weight but with loads of features. Some fittings and parts look like are not too sturdy, but seem to cope with regular use. The layout is very functional and comfortable.

More the Hyundai of caravans

Too many things falling off and breaking....bathroom basin hinge failure, compartment locks at front broke, draws sticking all after 12 months and 6000kms of bitumen only travelling . Parts need to come from Europe which is not good when you are on the move

Very pleased with our little 402PH!

published

Great use of space. Everything works well. Love the large 3 way fridge. Very easy to tow. Although positioned above the fridge, the microwave is really useful.
The awning could be a bit longer, but winds out and in easily. The struts can be attached in clips on the side of the van, or anchored vertically to the ground.
Very happy so far.

Off Road Company Claim

I have just taken my new Atria 552UP Sport onto a gravel road recommended by local tourism advisers to view wildflowers in WA. I purchased the van on the suppliers assurance the Sport was suitable for gravel roads. The actual experience was shattered glass doors in bathroom, toilet door coming off hinges, drawers jumping security catchers, toilet cassette trying to force its way through side door, failed window blind and catches.

Perfect first family caravan

published

Built for Australian condition it's loaded with all the comforts of home.
Great 4 birth family van with a large combo shower toilet and vanity,tare weight is only 1030kg all you need is a med suv or a large family car.
No need for electric brakes it comes with its own mechanical brakes and stability control it brakes and tows fantastic.
I owned one for 3 years with out any problems and had some great holidays touring Victoria I recently upgraded to a larger caravan.
Its a great van I highly recommend it.

ADRIA: Good product, Bad service & support

published

Our Altea 552UP has served us very well over 2.5 years & travelled around 35,000kms.
Design & build quality is good & is holding up very well to Australian conditions.
As with many other reviews, service availability & standard is extremely poor; at Dealer & Distributor level.
I would necessarily qualify recommending this product due to very poor customer support.
It should be noted that Apollo’s sales centre in Melbourne does not have a service facility!

Altea 552PK

Hi all, I am interested in an Adria 552 sport. Has anyone had experience taking them on corrugated and dirt roads? I am not planning on off-road adventure in the van but would be good to have some ability off the bitumen. Many thanks for taking the time to respond

I noticed some reviews on this subject but some were a few years old. You may find your answer by reading more product reviews or perhaps in a new van they have improved this. Good luck. I do not own a van just looking for one.
