Two versions of the Roxbury static caravan have been added to ABI’s portfolio for the 2014 season. Both are 38ft x 12ft single units, one having two bedrooms as reviewed here, and the other three bedrooms. Both also have open plan lounges and kitchens as standard whilst in the lodge reviewed here, they were separated by an optional wall and glazed door.
Externally, the static caravans are clad in scratch resistant aluminium and have a pantile roof. A painted chassis is standard with a pre-galvanised one as an option. Other options include a patio door in the lounge and UPVC Therma-Glass double glazing. Domestic gutters and downpipes are also standard to both lodges. Similarly, the entrance to the lodges leads directly into the kitchen.
There’s an integrated fridge/freezer immediately on the right as you enter with the L shaped kitchen facing you. Along the back wall is the stainless steel sink to the right of which is the twin cavity oven and four burner hob set in the corner at 45 degrees. On the wall behind the hob is a large glass splashback above which is a stainless steel extractor, whilst to the right is a wall cupboard above a nest of drawers and worktop. On the wall above the sink unit is an open cupboard for an optional microwave. The only other option available in the kitchen is a slimline dishwasher. Although there isn’t a great amount of worktop space what there is, is supplemented by the freestanding dining table which comes complete with four chairs. In the wall above the table are two sandblasted windows.
The door from the kitchen into the lounge is described as a glazed shaker door. The seating in the lounge is L shaped running along the back wall and down the party wall with the kitchen, and incorporates a pull out occasional bed.
Facing the seating is an L shaped low level storage unit with space for a TV. On the wall above is a display unit comprising shelves and two cupboards whilst in the corner of the room are two full height windows at 90 degrees to each other. Protruding slightly into the lounge to the right of the window in the end wall is a unit housing a number of shelves. A 2kW electric fire is mounted here.
A second shaker door leads from the kitchen into the corridor where the shower room and bedrooms are sited. The second bedroom is immediately on the left after going through the door from the kitchen. It has two single beds separated by a bedside cabinet. Behind each bed is a padded headboard above which are two vertical cupboards separated by a horizontal one. Suspended from the underside of the horizontal cupboard is a bedside light. Opposite the foot of the bed on the outside wall is a one and a half door wardrobe in the base of which are two deep drawers. On the wall next to the wardrobe is a panel containing a narrow shelf, mirror and a 13amp socket.
Opposite the second bedroom is the shower room. This has a large rectangular shower cubicle with a thermostatic shower mixer valve, a rectangular ceramic washbasin set on top of a vanity cabinet, a low level toilet, and an extractor fan set in the wall above the obscure glazed window. The static caravan’s gas boiler is also housed in a cupboard elsewhere in the room.
At the end of the static caravan is the master bedroom. This comes with a double bed with lift up storage, the bed being set into a display unit having a leather effect headboard. Above the headboard are three open display cabinets each with its own downlight.
Suspended below the cabinets are individual reading lights. Opposite the foot of the bed is a very attractive dressing table with three drawers to the left of the knee hole, and a padded stool. Off the bedroom is a walk-in wardrobe with under-shelf lighting, and an en suite toilet.
Verdict: Those who want an all year round static caravan can opt for the winter premium pack which includes Therma-Glass UPVC double glazing and domestic central heating. We would also recommend that they seriously consider the pre-galvanised chassis.
