Adria Alpina 613UL Colorado review

There are those who love to travel, and then there are those who love the road less taken. For the latter, the best companion is a caravan. The caravan is a trailer attachment, attached to the back of your SUV, letting you easily take your home with you wherever you want to go. One of the world’s largest manufacturers of caravan trailer bodies is Adria, whose latest flagship model, the Alpina 613UL Colorado is a trailblazer in the industry. We take a look to tell you the best of the Alpina 613UL.

Not afraid to take a bold step to stand out from the crowd, caravan manufacturer Adria has launched its flagship caravan, the Alpina. The flagship model has already been launched in the European market, while for the British market, the company has launched the 613UL Colorado, with fixed twin-single beds. Weighing nearly two tonnes, the company has created the perfect addition for your recreational vehicle needs.

On the Outside

One of the first things to notice about the model is the silver-coloured body, making the range stand out from the rest of the models in the line. The exterior has silver front and rear panels and embellished by sturdy chrome-plated grab bars on either side. Built on top of the Al-Ko Delta chassis, it gives the caravan excellent towing characteristics. For a vehicle longer than 8 metres, the Alpina has superior tyre contact to reduce body roll and improve stability and ride quality. In addition, it comes with AKS stabilizer, ATC trailer control, alloy wheels, an external gas barbecue point, a 230V socket, an awning light, and Alde Wet Central Heating. For water storage, the tank has a fresh-water tank with a volume of 80 litres.

Inside the Alpina

The Slovenian manufacturer’s primary objective was to design a caravan with superior lounge space, and the company succeeds in providing that to its customers. The U-shaped sofa can easily accommodate 6 persons, with options for a centre table if the need so arises. With three windows on the front and two on the sides, you can easily enjoy a panoramic view. For night time, three LED spotlights and ambient lighting flood the lounge easily. The lounge has a grey and purple-toned upholstery which adds a contemporary feel, without being too tacky.

The kitchen is bright and modern, with multiple drawers for superior storage. At the heart of the kitchen is a Thetford oven and a separate grille as standard equipment. The kitchen is also equipped with an extractor fan, so that cooking smells don’t linger. Opposite the stove is a 140 litre slimline Thetford fridge with a freezer compartment. To keep things tidy, there is also a bin by the habitation door.

The beds are massive in the Adria Alpina 613UL Colorado. The caravan is built with four berths, with the lounge converting into a massive twin-bed and two fixed single berths, each with reading and running lights, and a window with a curtain.

Final Verdict

Exuding elegance, style and luxury, the Adria Alpina 613UL Colorado with its standard offerings have been tailored for the British market. The caravan has thoughtful details underneath all the glitz and glamour that make up this thoughtful little piece. A chic choice, the only let-down for this vehicle is the slightly cramped bathroom.
