PASTICHE AND VIP models always echo each other when it comes to the seasonal updates and that is very much the case here. For the most part, it echoes all the upgrades applied to Pastiche, but the ‘walnut’ interior finish is warmer and a little more traditional. Like the Pastiche, it uses the Truma Combi with a unique digital control panel.

The extra cost of VIP over Pastiche is justified with the addition of several bits of extra kit, including Al-Ko ATC, Secure wheel lock and side-lift jack. A DVD-player built into the CD/Radio, mud flaps and a floor-level courtesy light.

 

Practical Caravan Verdict

The four single-axle layouts remain the same as 2011 with an end-washroom two-berth, side-dinette four-berth, a rear-island bed with washroom split over the centre of the aisle and nearside fixed-bed with a rear washroom.
