Coachman builds on its good reputation for manufacturing high quality touring caravans with its 2014 launches. Based in Hull, the firm was the top-scoring British caravan manufacturer in our Practical Caravan Owner Satisfaction Awards last year, in the pre-owned caravan category. This proves that Coachman caravans are built to last.

Space and luxury are still very much the selling point of Coachman’s top-of-the-range Laser caravans. The twin-axle line-up is trimmed to two models for 2014, deleting the six-berth 655/6. It benefits from all the upgrades to the lower ranges, and also gets a new Phantom Pro-3 tracker, which can tell you exactly where your van is and what the status of its leisure battery is.

Practical Caravan says…

“The Laser represents the last word in luxury, but with estimated MTPLMs still well over 1800kg, you’ll need a serious 4×4 to tow these tourers.”
