Coachman has slimmed down to 20 models over five ranges for the 2023 season, although the new line-up includes two brand new models and three revised caravan layouts.
The manufacturer, who you can find out more about in our guide to the best caravan makes, will also be keeping all 2023 models at 2022 season prices, until 21 August this year.
New models aside, the only really significant change for the new season is the introduction of new silver side panels on all Acadia models.
The range, which has also borne the brunt of the model deletions, now comes with a new Tibero interior wood.
The new models for 2023 include the VIP 675, a twin-axle version of the transverse island bed and end washroom VIP 575 which has been Coachman’s best-selling model.
The Laser Xcel 855 (lead image), meanwhile, is a new model with an L-shaped lounge in the front and, unusually for a caravan, a kitchen on the near side by the door.
Revised layouts are on the Acadia 545, Laser 665 and Laser Xcel 850. All have had their washroom revised, in particular the Laser 665 which now has a huge central washing-cum-dressing room.
The discontinued models are the Acadia 460,520, 565, and 675 Xtra, and the Laser 650 and 675.
The price freeze is running until the end of the retail launch event the company is running at Magna near Rotherham in South Yorkshire, an event which is being run partly in lieu of the now postponed new HERCMA show in Harrogate.
Coachman is entering the new season on something of a high, as it is now represented on 40 forecourts across the UK, compared with just 23 as recently as 2012. The brand also saw the Coachman VIP 540 Xtra and Coachman Lusso II winning categories at the Practical Caravan Awards.
The high demand caused by travel restrictions means that it carried over just 10 new vehicles at the end of the 2021 season. It usually counts on carrying over 10 per cent of each year’s production, which has now been over 2,000 caravans for the past five years.
It is expanding its exhibition space at this October’s NEC show by 25 per cent, and is currently investing £1.5m in upgrading its Hull factory.
