Three-berth caravans are something of a rarity these days. With a front lounge that makes up a double and a side dinette that can only be a single bed, they’re rarer still.

Coachman features this layout in three of its ranges, but beyond that, you will only find it in the Lunar Clubman ES.

This seems strange, because in many ways, this arrangement is the perfect solution for people who want a caravan that can accommodate the occasional guest but is still relatively short.

Then, when you have no guest, you can leave the bed made up and use the dinette for meals.

With this in mind, we took a look at one of Coachman’s mid-level models, the Alde-heated Pastiche 520.
