Here we have our little 2005 Trigano Rubis 310 reluctantly put up
for sale due to ill health. As we will no longer be caravanning it will be sold
with most of its equipment which will include a 16" LCD Freeview TV with built in
DVD player! (see list below) .
This caravan is suitable for all year use as it has gas hot
air heating and gas or electric hot water and though it has no shower, this can
be retrofitted as the bathroom floor is already a drained shower floor. Although this is a "pop-top" caravan, unlike many it has solid panels for the roof sections not canvas. These are insulated and draft proof.
The bed can be used as a large 170 cm double (almost king
sized!) or two 58 cm singles. I will also supply a simple conversion item that
will allow a single user to have a bed 88 cm wide and still have the use of the
table while the bed is made up.
It is very nice to tow and at only 1.8 m wide is a lot less
than my Octavia which is 1.97 m wide at
the wing mirrors. This is great because you never have to worry about getting
the van through a gap and I don't use mirror extensions. (You will need them in
France though!). Economy while towing is good due to the low
weight and wind resistance . I get around 45 mpg with my 1.9 Turbo Diesel.
A modern 13 pin plug is fitted though does come with a
converter lead which has both 7 pin plugs. On the question of electrics, the
supplied charger developed a fault and I had it replaced with a high quality Nordelettronica automatic
charger which was recommended in a Caravan Club Magazine article.
The awning that came with the van is of very high quality
and made from a kind of tough plasticised fabric in 4 sections which zip
together over a frame. We used this for any camps over a few days. However, for
weekends and short stays we used a conventional universal porch awning which has an
adaptor to take the awning rail height of 185 cm up to the normal of around 230
cm. The adaptor takes only two mins to fit then you just fit the porch awning
Condition of van is excellent though a small corner was cracked off the front window and n/s side window, these were repaired but can be seen if you look but really aren't very noticeable. Does not effect double glazing.
