MATRIX AXESS 590SG OWNERS – Tony and Jan
We purchased our Adria – Matrix Axess 590 – at the NEC show in 2015. We were looking to replace our existing motorhome (a Knaus Sport) which we had had for 7 years and loved. However, we struggled with the maintenance and servicing of the Knaus, so thought we should look at all medium/small motorhomes anew.
We spoke to Lee from Family Travel Centre in Bristol and really liked his knowledge and his enthusiasm for the whole Adria range. He spent quality time with us, going through the various models and making sure we were happy with our choice.
The Adria Matrix Axess 590 is ideal. It has all the trappings of a ‘home from home’ but the flexibility of a smaller motorhome. It doesn’t take much space on our drive, is very easy and comfortable to drive and has a good payload. We camp all through the year, often on sites without electricity, and have never felt compromised even though it is less than 6m in length!
Family Travel Centre is an absolute delight to deal with, we feel they honestly want to give us the best treatment possible, even though we know we are just one of many hundreds of happy customers. Where we have had concerns, they have been dealt with as quickly as possible, the communication channels between Adria and Family Travel Centre seem to be open and responsive. We have not known that with
other manufacturers and their suppliers.
We have added air bags to the rear suspension, which makes the ride smoother, an external Beeny Box for hoses, cables, etc, an external BBQ point, a couple of extra USB points and purchased refillable gas bottles.
We have also made better use of the kitchen/garage space by putting in a false floor under the kitchen area to house 2 drawer units. We have plenty of storage, never yet feeling that we are tight for space. When we first bought the Adria, we spent 6 weeks in it whilst our kitchen at home was rebuilt, and later
this year we are travelling around the coast of Scotland for a couple of months or so.
In between, we are out at least once a fortnight during the summer months and at least once a month over the winter, so our Adria gets good usage. We love it and expect to continue to have it for the foreseeable future.
