Coachman has, in effect, rolled its ranges into one with the new Acadia line-up.

The Vision has gone, as has the long-serving Pastiche, but this new range takes all of the good bits out of the two and combines them into one new line-up that looks as though it will work very well.

The Acadia range offers buyers a modern interior, with the level of quality that we’ve come to expect from Coachman. Here, we take a look at the Acadia 470 – a layout that was available only in the Pastiche.

The 470 first appeared a few years ago, with a front fixed bed, which some thought was a bit of a risky idea.

But instead of dropping the 470, Coachman went back to the drawing-board and gave it an L-shaped front lounge – a great idea!

In effect, the 470 is a short version of the 520, with end washroom, side single dinette and front lounge. This tourer will sleep three, but it’s really more of a couple’s layout. However it might be used, we reckon this has got to be a good seller.
