Coachman has revised two layouts in its 2024 season, while on the inside the major change has been a move away from Dometic to Thetford products.
The company says it will also be freezing all prices on continuing 2024 models for a limited time, and throwing in a free Powrtouch caravan motor mover as an incentive to buy.
The Coachman line-up remains pared down in contrast with pre-lockdown years.
The standard Laser range of twin-axle caravans has been shrunk from four to just three for the 2024 season, with last season’s three berth 620 model being discarded. In its place comes the Coachman Laser Xtra 665 model, with fixed single beds at the rear and a central washroom. It has been widened to 8ft to take on the Xtra nomenclature.
Meanwhile the Laser Xcel range, all of which are 8ft wide with twin axles, continues as four models. The 850 model has had its transverse island bed switched around so that the head is now on the nearside.
The Lusso and Acadia ranges continue as before, with, respectively, two and four models and no changes. The VIP range, meanwhile, has shrunk from six to five models, with the loss of the 540 Xtra.
On the inside, across all ranges Coachman has swapped last season’s Series 10 Dometic fridges (with the two-way opening door) for single opening Thetford fridge freezers. Kitchens also get a Thetford sink and a Thetford oven.
Laser, Laser Xcel and Lusso models also get a flexible chrome and black kitchen tap that can be tilted upwards to aid drainage.
Connectivity has also improved, with all ranges except the Acadia getting a double USB and USB C socket in amongst the TV sockets (check out our best caravan TV guide if you want to enjoy some television on tour). Acadia models get USB sockets in some spotlights.
All ranges also now get a Teleco Teleplus TV aerial with integrated FM/DAB reception capability.
Other brands are also releasing their 2024 news, with Knaus set to unveil an all-electric space-saving caravan at the October NEC Show. Adria has also announced its new Action model is set to appear at the show too. Eriba has also made its Tourer range available in a selection of new colours.
