Price range: £20,795-£22,595 At the red-carpet end of Coachman's line-up is the single-axle VIP range, which has had a few tweaks to its already impressive specification list. In addition to the touches it shares with the Pastiche, it gets a scissor jack as standard.

Aside from the Pastiche’s new family layout, the model range is the same for VIPs. So what has it got that the Pastiche hasn’t?

At the red-carpet end of Coachman's line-up is the single-axle VIP range, which has had a few tweaks to its already impressive specification list. In addition to the touches it shares with the Pastiche, it gets a scissor jack as standard.

 

 

Aside from the Pastiche’s new family layout, the model range is the same for VIPs. So what has it got that the Pastiche hasn’t?

 

 

For starters, it has the Al-Ko Secure wheel lock and a DVD player, which together will cost £550 as options on the Pastiche. It also has floor-level courtesy lights and an outside shower attachment, handy for hosing down the dog. Cabinets are finished in warm walnut, as opposed to the cooler ash effect used in the Pastiche.

 

 

Competitors to Coachman VIP in the upmarket sector include Elddis Crusader, Sterling Eccles Elite and Swift Conqueror.
