Of all its ranges, Coachman’s flagship VIP receives the most improvements for 2018.

A key difference over last year’s line-up is that VIP’s head count grows by three, as a result of the twin-axle Laser being retired.

This means that the VIP offer now encompasses single- and twin-axle tourers – Laser’s ‘6xx’ numbering is continued for easy recognition.

As a result, nine models comprise the new VIP range of Coachman caravans for 2018, including a family-friendly floorplan – yes, really – the rear bunk/dinette 570, which will take a bow at the autumn NEC show.

So what better time for a proper design and spec revamp, especially as VIP has been largely unchanged since 2012?

In come new bodyshells with a new graphics scheme, plus new aerodynamic front panels and side windows.

The rear panels are new, featuring buzzy road lights, and the grabhandles front and back match the grey colour used on the front skirt.

We’re going to look at all these changes in the form of the island-bed VIP 575 four-berth – Coachman’s best-selling model.
