Pitching and setting up
This is a new layout for the VIP range, with a big island bed and a split washroom. Specification is improved and ATC stability control now comes as standard.
The interior feels very Coachman – traditional and beautifully crafted, with light wood cabinetry and tasteful upholstery. There are drop-in carpets and one TV point.
The kitchen hasn’t been left out of the improved specification. It boasts a thoroughly modern kit list, having a new Thetford 107-litre fridge, microwave oven and four-burner hob.
The washroom door closes in two directions, including across the bedroom entrance to create an en suite. The toilet seat cover is twee, and there's little legroom when the door is closed. The offside circular shower is large and luxurious, and on the nearside is the Thetford and sink.
There's plenty of space to walk around the island bed, with his and hers cupboards and twin spotlights. Thoughtfully, the bedroom also has another TV point.
Traditional finish and superb build quality make this island bed on single axle great for couples with a car that can tow it.
