If you've been shopping around, you've likely noticed there aren't many caravans for sale under 2000kg. Until you discover Adria that is. When it comes to finding a range of caravans that are lightweight, family-friendly and easy to tow, you’d be extremely hard pushed to find a range that ticks all of those boxes as much as Adria does. Each Adria model is put through an extremely rigorous series of tests to ensure that they’re highly durable and extremely robust, yet they’re still some of the most lightweight caravans on Australian roads, which means they really do offer the best of both worlds. What’s even more amazing is that the entire range is designed to accommodate and entertain without comprising on comfort. Check out their models below:

If you’re in the market for a palace on wheels but weight is a factor then look no further than the Altea 552 UP. With an ATM that’s a few hundred kg heavier than the previous two caravans that we’ve mentioned, this caravan is very much still considered to be a lightweight option. The extra weight in the 552 UP comes from the fact that that it’s bigger in terms of length (approx. 1.5m longer than the 402 PH and approx. 0.6m longer than the 472 PK) which makes it ideal for anyone who’s looking for a lightweight caravan that offers that extra bit of space.
