While its clever design makes it easy on the eye, the spacious Supreme Executive is much more than just a pretty face.

While boasting the familiar front bedroom, full-width rear bathroom (FBRB) layout, the Supreme Executive makes good use of space to offer a caravan with some well thought out quirks.


Supporting the Supreme is a SupaGal box section chassis. It comes with 150mm/6in rails for both the main chassis and the drawbar rails, which run back to the front suspension mounts. The suspension is a simple leaf spring load sharing setup with shock absorbers fitted to each wheel.

A look under the chassis reveals most items neatly strapped up out of the way. There are no real surprises on the drawbar with ball coupling, handbrake, centre-mounted jockey wheel and two gas cylinders. There is also a mesh rack between the rails and a checkerplate-protected mains pressure tap. At the rear of the van, the bumper bar sports a spare wheel and two jerry can holders. Both water tanks are fitted forward of the suspension mounts between the chassis rails.

Like the chassis, the caravan body is constructed in the conventional way with a meranti timber frame complete with insulation and covered by aluminium cladding. Polished alloy checkerplate is used for front wall protection, while contrasting black checkerplate covers the lower wall areas. In addition to the front boot, a three-quarter tunnel boot can be accessed from the front nearside.


In the luxury camping department, this Executive not only comes with an awning but also a picnic table, external speakers, three LED wall lights and an external shower – it’s very well-appointed.

Although there’s an 80W solar panel on the caravan roof, Supreme has fitted a second Anderson plug to the offside drawbar rail, so a secondary source (such as a ground-based solar panel) can be plugged in.

On the road, this Executive has a Tare of 2214kg and an ATM of 2614kg, which puts it over the 2500kg limit of many vehicles. That means it will, therefore, require a larger class of tow vehicle. That may or may not be a problem for buyers, but it does eliminate vehicles such as a Toyota Prado, which is something to keep in mind.
