The departure of the Compass Corona 382 for 2016 means that the end-washroom, parallel-lounge, two-berth Corona 462 is now the cheapest Compass tourer. But that doesn’t make it a budget model: this is very much a mid-market van that thinks it’s a flagship, with an impressive spec that includes Alde wet central heating, shock absorbers and an ATC stability system, all for a price that compares very competitively with lower-spec rivals.

The shape is less stylish than the likes of the Sterling Eccles, but it follows the family look with sharp tinted windows and the exterior has been freshened up by simple yet attractive new graphics. Equipment additions for 2016 include a Teleco Teleplus directional TV aerial plus the large ‘Star-View’ rooflight over the lounge. And to see other Compass caravans for sale, click here.
