The Return of An Iconic British Motorhome Brand
Compass Motorhomes Return to Production and are Available at Southdowns
Compass motorhomes are set to be relaunched to the UK as part of Erwin Hymer’s expansion in the UK. Erwin Hymer bought out the Explorer Group which includes Elddis and Compass.
Southdowns are pleased to be a part of the relaunch and we are delighted to have been appointed one of their launch dealers.
Compass motorhomes are being relaunched with a great blend of practicality, specification and driving performance for an affordable price. With van conversions starting at £37,827 and low profile motorhomes at £38,749, they are at the entry level of the market, but with pretty much everything you need.
The Compass Avantgarde will be identical to the Elddis Autoquest line up, with the addition of the van conversions, the CV20 and CV40 which have been developed in only 8 months. The range will differ to the Elddis’ however with its own exterior graphics and blue and brown Montauk upholstery.
On top of the two van conversions, the model range also consists of 6 low profile motorhomes. Compass is making a big deal about berths to belted seats. For every berth, they guarantee a belted seat. This is a big thing in the motorhome industry, when even some 6 berth motorhomes, can only actually legally carry 2 people. All 4 berths have bench seats in the front dinette.
