The 2014 Coachman Pastiche range reviewed by Practical Caravan's experts, featuring the 460/2, the 520/4, the 525/4, the 545/4, the 560/4 and the 565/4

Well established British caravan manufacturer Coachman specialises in making strong, top-quality touring caravans that will stand the test of time. Coachman was rated the highest of all manufacturers by people who bought pre-owned caravans and rated them for our Owner Satisfaction Awards last year.

Little has changed with this attractive mid-market range for 2014, which still offers six layouts, one of which is a two-berth while the rest are four-berths. Externally, there are new alloy wheels, a new Avtex omnidirectional aerial, and the same updated Truma Combi 6 as in the Vision with a smart new control panel.

Otherwise, the Pastiche has had a very gentle sprucing up, with slight changes to soft furnishings and external graphics. Prices will rise by two per cent.

Practical Caravan says...

"After unveiling the radical, glamping-inspired 525/4 for 2013, the Pastiche range undergoes quiet evolution for the coming season."

The 2014 Coachman Pastiche range

Pastiche 460/2

Price from £20,245

A two-berth with a parallel lounge, midships kitchen and an end washroom. The kitchen is separated across the central corridor, with the main unit on the offside and the fridge on the nearside. The rear washroom has a circular shower stall and an integrated wardrobe. The MTPLM is 1425kg.

Pastiche 520/4

Price from £21,795

This four-berth has a parallel lounge up front, a midships dinette which also serves as a set of bunk beds, and an end washroom with an integrated wardrobe and circular shower stall. The kitchen is a little short on worktop space, but this can be supplemented thanks to the dinette table. The MTPLM is 1590kg.

Pastiche 525/4

Price from £21,995

A front lounge four-berth with parallel lounge sofas, a kitchen sited amidships, rear offside corner bunks and a rear nearside corner washroom. The kitchen is made up of two L-shaped units, one housing the fridge and the other housing the hob and sink. The rear bunks can be cordoned off to create a changing area. The MTPLM is 1650kg.

Pastiche 545/4

Price from £21,995

A luxurious four-berth with a parallel-sofa lounge up front, a midships kitchen, a rear island bed, and a split washroom, with separate shower and toilet areas. The shower cubicle is situated on the offside, at the foot of the bed, and the toilet cubicle is across the corridor, and includes the sink. The MTPLM is 1610kg.

Pastiche 560/4

Price from £21,995

A four-berth with a parallel lounge, midships kitchen with full-height fridge, fixed corner double bed and a full-width end washroom. The spacious washroom features a huge square shower cubicle, and the rear bed area can be cordoned off to allow for privacy. This practical fixed-bed layout has an MTPLM of 1620kg.

Pastiche 565/4

Price from £21,995

A four-berth with a parallel lounge up front, midships kitchen, fixed twin single beds and a full-width end washroom. The fixed beds take up quite a lot of the interior length, so the kitchen has been shortened, and lacks workspace. The washroom is huge, though, and has a big shower cubicle. The MTPLM is 1630kg.
