Crusader Tempest

NEW! We have introduced our multi-award-winning Elddis Avante 868 layout to our high-spec, luxury Crusader range. Meet the all-new Elddis Crusader Tempest. The rear of the Crusader Tempest is dedicated to sleeping soundly with a fixed ‘French’ double bed and two spacious bunk ‘pods’.
