Coachman is admired for building robust, high-quality tourers that stand the test of time. Indeed, the company won a gold gong in our first Owner Satisfaction Awards in 2013, charting as the highest-scoring UK manufacturer for pre-owned caravans, proof that its products last and that its dealer network looks after customers.

For the 2014 season, the company invested in producing the new Vision range, which replaces the Amara line-up. Although it is Coachman’s entry-level offering, it competes in the mid-market sector. One criticism that’s been levelled at Coachman down the years is that its vans are heavy and expensive compared with rivals. With the Vision, Coachman set out to cut weight and cost, to appeal to a wider audience.

The Vision range offers two, four, five and six berths – here we have the four-berth 560/4. It has a popular layout comprising parallel sofas up front, a central kitchen, a nearside fixed double bed and an end washroom across the full width of the van – it is now the most-supplied layout in the UK.
