First look, October 2008

Pitching and setting up

This is a new layout for the VIP range, with a big island bed and a split washroom. Specification is improved and ATC stability control now comes as standard.

Lounge

The interior feels very Coachman – traditional and beautifully crafted, with light wood cabinetry and tasteful upholstery. There are drop-in carpets and one TV point.

Kitchen

The kitchen hasn’t been left out of the improved specification. It boasts a thoroughly modern kit list, having a new Thetford 107-litre fridge, microwave oven and four-burner hob.

Washroom

The washroom door closes in two directions, including across the bedroom entrance to create an en suite. The toilet seat cover is twee, and there's little legroom when the door is closed. The offside circular shower is large and luxurious, and on the nearside is the Thetford and sink.

Beds

There's plenty of space to walk around the island bed, with his and hers cupboards and twin spotlights. Thoughtfully, the bedroom also has another TV point.
