Hi our last van was an Adria Matrix 670sp on a 2010 plate, we had no issues with the van and thought the quality was very good. I've heard if you need parts they can take a while to come apart from that no issues I'm aware of.
Is it a new van or a used one.

Hi Lorger
It's a 2016 model Adria Matrix 670SL the anniversary silver edition just can't wait I've heard the build quality is very good on them I have a Bolero724FB but issue after issue with it ,

We only sold ours as we downsized after our daughter left for uni, if I was going for a coachbuilt again I'd definitely look at the Adria. We used ours in all conditions from -15 at Glenshee to the high 30's in Slovenia and the van coped well with everything. The one thing I would have changed if I could was the heater was at the back of the van and the run to the front was a bit long in my opinion, I would have placed it in the middle of the van. This wasn't a major issue just took longer to heat the front, we would close all the rear heater vents and leave front open until heat was through. That's the only thing I think I would change if designing it from start.

Good luck with your purchase

2014 670SC owned from new. We've got 30k on the clock now and have had no issues at all. Very happy with the build quality and layout (rear island bed, double pull-down over the lounge area. Decent size garage and satisfactory payload. Would certainly buy another Adria in the future. :)

We purchased an Adria Matrix 670sl platinum and took delivery last May and had great fun kitting it out .

As far as TV in the cabinet over the Fridge freezer is concerned we managed to squeeze in a Samsung 22" model UE22H56000 AKXXU full HD. The only issue I had was that the supplied internal tv bracket was not fitted centrally so had to remove it and refit it. We also racked out the garage and posted the pleasing results on the Motorhome fun forum.

A few other niggles but in general we are very pleased with our Adria Motorhome and hope that we can find the time to make better use of it this year.

Well funny you should mention that.. the supplying dealer The Motorhome Depot fitted the microwave for me as an extra and am happy to give you model details should you require them.

They managed to fit it in the left hand cupboard above the sink but didn’t fit a proper clasp catch to the cupboard door so it didn’t close properly.

I managed to do this myself when I got home after collecting it. It is a tight fit and think this was one of only a few microwaves that would fit in the cupboard space.

It’s a Daewoo QT1 compact design microwave oven 600 watts power that fits a 10 inch plate. We bought another of these for a caravan from Asda for £40 recently.

Please see pics of it in situ in our Motorhome as well as shots of the catch I fitted.

Hi trout bum
we own the silver edition Matrix 670sl - very pleased with it - went for the 150 engine. two small niggles you might want to watch out for....
1. in the washroom/toilet the splash back for the sink has 3 very nicely cut long holes along the wall - this lets any water splashed on there run down behind the sink etc. easy to fix bit of sealant and small 90 degree angled plastic.
2. if you have the Thule awning fitted it does not fit flush with the side panel all the way along. its attached at 3 different points (left, right and centre) this allows rain to run down the side of the van even when you have the awning out. also the central run off is positioned directly above the external light. yes you've guessed it - it runs into the light. already had to take it apart and clean it, not too difficult. I eventually ran a thick bead of sealant all the way along the top of the awning which appears to have resolved the problem - for now !!

other than that the van is great and looking forward to spending more time in it.
regards
dave and lorraine

Unfortunately we didn’t have the latest cab with digital radio or Sat Nav built in.

We use a Samsung galaxy tablet with co pilot caravan app. This has met our road navigation needs. We also added a pure dab radio adapter for the radio which works well.

Hope this helps.
