Coachman’s Laser was launched as a luxury line-up similar to the VIP but on a twin axle. The range gave the brand a new identity.
The Lasers, all four-berths, offered a full spec. They were introduced for the 1999 season and became a top-selling luxury tourer on the UK market.
We found a great example in this 2014 Laser 620/4. Packed with kit, its condition was very good, especially inside – it had clearly seen very careful use.
The 620/4 has a large front lounge and side kitchen, a side single dinette with fold-up bunk and a separate fridge/freezer. There’s a superb washroom at the rear, and plenty of storage in this spacious interior.
Launched with just one model, over the years Laser became established as a brand as more models joined the range.
The 620/4 was introduced for the 2013 season and it quickly proved a popular tourer for couples, with the option of sleeping up to four.
The kitchen on the nearside is opposite the side dinette, and along with the end washroom, offers loads of storage space.
Built on Al-Ko twin-axled chassis, the Laser 620 came with Alde heating, a solar panel, heavy-duty corner steadies and a host of other kit, including an on-board water tank.
There were only two models for 2014, including a fixed-bed layout. But the 620/4 is a very popular choice in the used van market and you shouldn’t have problems finding one.
With so many good examples to choose from, you will need to do your homework before you buy – there’s a wide range of prices, so shop around.
You might want to look at two other luxury end-washroom models. For example, check out a Swift Elegance 530 (single-axle) from 2015 for £18,000 to £18,995; this is another well-equipped tourer, with Alde heating and more.
Or you could try a Compass Rallye 530, a single-axle four-berth with an end washroom and a great spec, costing around £15,995 and weighing in at less than 1500kg.
Both of these tourers offer excellent floorplans and a good level of comfort – although we still think the twin-axle Laser really is the tops here!
These luxurious twin-axles offer so much to the seasoned caravanner, you’re bound to find a bargain.
Checking the dealerships’ forecourts, we saw 2014 models from £15,499 to £17,499. But as always, condition is a factor in these cases, as is the amount of stock the dealer has in hand.
We tracked down one private sale with a £15,000 price tag, too!
The Laser range is a high-spec line-up; they are often used for seasonal pitches because they make a great all-year tourer.
The 620/4 comes with a great rear washroom, and there’s a side-fixed bed as an alternative layout. The model we looked at was in fantastic condition and would make a superbly comfortable tourer for two.
One small niggle we should point out is that at the time, Coachman used the Avtex Stick TV aerial, which isn’t brilliant in areas with poor reception. Some owners might have added a Status aerial; if so, check it’s been fitted correctly. But taken all in all, these tourers make an excellent pre-owned choice.
