The Pastiche name appeared in 1992, six years after Coachman was founded, and has been a mainstay of the firm ever since. It provides a bridge between the affordable Vision and the top-spec single-axle VIP. 

Traditionally, the model has used the same body as the VIP, but with slightly less kit and a different finish. For 2015, however, Coachman has made the decision to switch to the shell of the Vision, which was launched last year. 

It’s a shade narrower, at 7ft 5in, but the change brings two important benefits: cost and weight saving. Neither had been confirmed as we went to press, but we expect the price to be down by a useful £800 or so, and weight to drop by around 50kg. For the smallest model, this 460/2 two-berth with an end washroom, that should mean an MTPLM of somewhere in the region of 1375kg.
