Coachman made big changes for the 2016 season, in a drive to cut weights across the board. As a result, tweaks to the VIP range for 2017 have been fairly minimal.

There are no new layouts, and in the majority of models it’s simply a case of freshened-up interiors and some smart new graphics.

Certainly the traditional looks remain – although that’s no bad thing. It may be getting long in the tooth, but the VIP still looks elegant and upmarket, set off by its graphite roof rails and sills.

It’s not all business as usual, though: the four-berth VIP 565 has had an internal rethink in response to customer feedback, in particular in the rear bedroom.

The fixed twin beds make this an ideal layout for couples who want a fixed bed but would prefer not to disturb their partner when they use the end washroom, or families who are happy to make up the front double each night.
