The Coachman VIP 545/4 is one of the five models in the single-axle luxury range produced by the Hull manufacturer, whose tourers have the reputation for excellent build quality. All of its tourers are built to last and have performed well in Practical Caravan’s Owner Satisfaction Surveys, both as new and pre-owned models.

What’s more, Coachman’s upper ranges are some of the best-looking vans on the market, thanks to an overhaul for the 2012 season. These included the addition of dark grey roof rails, arched corners to the moulded front panel, matching wheel arches, skirt strips and large integrated sunroofs.

Since then, changes to the top ranges have been minor. For example, for 2014 the VIP range got new alloy wheels, an Avtex ultra-slim TV and Truma Combi 6 heating, with a smart digital control panel operated via a rotary knob. It also got a new 80W solar panel fitted to its roof as standard, which is a higher power rating than those fitted to  rivals in this sector, such as the Elddis Crusader Cyclone.
