Coachman Caravans 2019 – First Look


We’ve arrived at the 2019 coachman caravans preview Now the idea of these first look videos is just to give you a look and a feel of the new 2019 ranges they’re not full reviews by any stretch of the imagination the hot news from coachman for 2019 is the reintroduction of the laser range now last year The laser range was dropped in favour of a twin axle VIP That situation has now been reversed and we’re back to having a twin axle laser and a single axle VIP Further down the line. We have a new pastiche. That’s the 470. I’ll show you that one. We’re going to start with the Well, you can’t call it entry-level Coachman don’t make an entry-level caravan. We’ll start with the Can’t call it base range You can’t call it entry-level You can’t call it what you call the vision We’ll start with the vision range So we will start with the vision five four five single front gas Locker stabilizer hitch Nice sort of navy blue charcoal grey graphics Alloy wheels, a ONE PIECE door, (I’d prefer two piece… …to keep the dog in), flyscreen and then as we get in So the vision this year comes in this I really like it it’s kind of like a kind of oatmealy burnt orange What do you think viewers? What would you call that colour? Either way? He’s very smart and Sun roof and Roof light so despite the Problems that the camera is having at the moment. It is very bright in here. It’s a lovely Open feel. So let’s move around to the kitchen in this layout With your Thetford fridge extension their cooker Has a dual fuel hop Switch tap so you have a separate draining board for your sink So the table is stored here and then you’ve got some space for your foodstuffs there because kitchen is a little bit tight on storage space in this particular layout And as we go through to the center of the caravan we have the washroom loo wash basin and shower Some really nice finishing touches in here And it’s just really solidly put together, but then it’s a coachable. I suppose they always are And is through to the bedroom out the rear I did before I started filming Get on this bed because it looked a little bit short to be I am 5 foot 10 I only just found it long enough So I haven’t got a tape measure do try before you buy if you’re interested in this layout I think if you’re over 6 foot You might find that a little bit too small and then you have wardrobes I other side of the bed and then again typical coachman Attention to detail if you notice the cupboards under the wardrobes, they’ve pulled them out slightly So you’ve got somewhere to put your cup of tea in the morning Top marks coachman, right? Let’s go and have a look at another vision Right. Now, let’s have a look at a family-friendly layout the 580 in common with the 545 we’ve just looked at the retail price on this vision is approximately 21,000 pounds so Starting at the front again obviously Same color scheme or lovely bright open lounge And I’ll spin around on this side the kitchen In the middle there small area to stand a TV a Little alcove to charge your devices with cable tidy there to the sockets both 12 volts and mains and Then as we head to the back of the caravan You’ve got the bunk beds here Top Bottom each of them has a window and light Wardrobe here And then through to the washroom Which is so well designed your toilet Shower The vision range is heated with the tremor system both gas and Electric blown air system, which is inet ready, which means you can control that with an app from your smartphone It’s a beacon is smart It’s delicious So let’s now go and have a look at the pastiche range Right. So Duggal shall we start with the new one the pastiche? 470 It’s a dinky little thing the front stabilizer coupling single gas Locker so very swish wael outlets here from your main socket and Gas BBQ point Two-piece door with the bin And as we go in The fridge with the Wardrobe above it. You’ll see it’s an interesting layout It’s similar to the Pastis that coachmen recently trialed with the bed at the front. Now what they’ve done They put the small dinette. Well, it’s actually quite a sizable dinette here and Then you’ve got this l-shaped lounge at the front now I really really like this layout because I’m a single traveler and if you’re a single traveler, this is just utterly utterly perfect, because you’ve got your eating working space here and Then you have this multifunctional space here We took another leave as our bed or have as your sofa Obviously this makes up into a double bed. So here we are sitting in the lounge looking towards the back at the kitchen Two piece sink and drainer plenty of storage space No surprise to see it is a dual fuel hob with the microphone microphone Microwave up above it. So shorter people will find that less easy to use Opposite the main door is your fridge with the wardrober bar That’s the tank for the central heating there And then into the washroom the rear Loo wash basin and shower The pastiche range comes with alder wet central heating Which I think you all know. I’m a huge fan of So I have to say the the new 470. I really really like it. It’s compact yet. It’s still Spacious on the inside. It’s a real TARDIS Right, let’s go and have a look at something a little bit bigger No, not Duggal Right do go Right, let’s look at something a little bit bigger the pastiche 5 6 5 with that lovely sort of rust colored and charcoal graphic this is a single axle and I brought you into this one because this one has Twin single Betts. So once again, we have the same brown upholstery in this one Oatmeal and chocolate no chocolate Santa kitchen That’s quite similar to the one we saw in the vision, isn’t it folks? This side we have the Wardrobe a couple of drawers underneath But of course in this particular layout we are looking at the single beds So David Bird is watching This is what you could be upgrading to David He’s just bought a brand new Caravan so anything Soft clothes Locker doors But no positive catch is still so of the sea coachman owners Are not requesting it because if they were I’m sure they were putting it in As you can see Aldi central heating so we’ve got the radiator there by the toilet That similar wash basin and turps or the one we saw in the vision, oh well just a quick one folks while we’re here Hello sorry and Then the very swish shower cubicle Okay, so that is your Pastiche range now, let’s go and have a look at the v.i.p Okay, let’s move on up to the VIP Which had a new body shell last year with these? Two doors at the front that the gas bottle here and storage on the opposite side really smart the midnight blue charcoal gray graphics, and we’re going to start here with the 460 a Nice suite that will two berths Massively popular Same glass as my Caravan that’s why right. So we now move up to a one-piece door with a bin and Moving on in it’s your classic and washroom – both layout – shot a lot of a light out to try and balance it for these photos, but Show you close-up at the car skis this is sort of an oatmeal with mustard hints Again, it’s just so nice Really really? elegant and tasteful if I open up the blinds at the front here, you can see you’ve got a sunroof And a roof light So the light just floods That’s a Little work top extension there And that is so wrong. It’s a really clever design and then at the front looking towards the rear This is just fantastic for one or two people on Long term touring or if you just enjoy cooking because you’ve got all this storage and workspace in the kitchen plus This is what I love about what coachman do is that on the opposite side to the kitchen? this surface is at the same height as the kitchen so you can either have it somewhere to stand the TV or you can use this as extra work space for the kitchen and Spotted this as well. You’ve got USB points here as well as two mains sockets Hello diva Not forgetting of course Next to the entry door the Heated cupboard from the Eldar central heating so you can dry your boots when you get in from a walk that is just ah, you know, I really love the attention to detail and the thought That goes into catchment products Tons of storage, I mean You just love it because it works you know, it’s not got the latest flashy gizmo and gimmick it just works Above the kitchen you have an extractor fan and then we go through to the washroom Stunning it’s huge. I Don’t know where to start really when I start with the loo which you can see is this smart Dometic Design It is plastic though not ceramic This tap drew a lot of debate last year. I love it Some people say it would get in a way, but I think it’s so smart It certainly wouldn’t look out of place in a boutique hotel. I think folks it’s time for another pillar. Sorry lovely spacious sealed shower unit This is the first of two wardrobes, so this is a narrow cupboard really you could put the coats when you come in And then next to the loo you Have a much larger wardrobe here With two drawers below that So, you know what it’s not going to set the world on fire what it is going to do is it’s just Going to work a single person or two people Excellent, right. Let’s go on to something a little bit bigger in the VIP range So why don’t we look at one of the most popular VIP layouts of the five twenty? Always a popular laying out this one purely for its versatility. You have the dinette here Parallel Sofas at the front so ideal for single beds plenty of room Obviously you can leave that made up the bed if you’re touring and just use the dinette for eating and Yeah, it’s just Same spec as the VIP we had just seen with the same Pioneer stereo LED light fittings and just dripping with attention to detail again like the Area to charge your devices only now, we’re in the VIP range. We also have USB sockets as well as the 12 volt and 240 Fantastic kitchen Heated boot covered by the door. What do you reckon Duggal or the heated? Boot cupboard? They’re very good. I’ll name yes and the washroom is identical to the one we’ve just seen in the 416 so we’ll leave it there Lou Sorry And moving on up to the new top of the range the Reintroduced laser. First of all you’ll notice It’s got very swish grey sides silver sights grey silver and This lovely yellow and charcoal detail to the side There are three to an actual models Each of them has fixed beds to have double beds one has single beds and these are the two double bed layouts Obviously you have an exterior main socket and gas BBQ point and on the other side Is a point for an external shower as we go in? little view of The upholstery they’re very very smart contemporary finish And then looking to the rear You can see has a lovely splash back to the kitchen there a huge amount of storage in the kitchen And then on the other side of the kitchen we have the fridge freezer past the TV station and this is really clever As your freezer But if you want to use this side You can use this side, but if you want to open it this way You go open it this way. I made the fridge if you want to open it this way You open it this way? And if you want to open it this way You can open it this way. I Could play with that for days. I think that is so clever. So that its domestic series 10 fridge apparently Naturally, this has an older central heating the bed does pull out a few inches At night it just pushes in to allow you to get past during the day very swish padded headboard there I Think any boutique hotel would be proud And the route to the washroom Different layout but similar concept to the washroom. We have seen in the VIP But one thing I want to show you as well which will be in all coachman caravans They’ve just not had time to fit them to all the prototypes But they’ve managed to fit them into this one. Is this in the shower cubicle? Every range now this will be fitted This clothes hook so you can put your wet Coats on hangers or your washing to dry or too hair? on that hook So this is the 6 7 5 now let’s go and have a look at the 650 which is the other double bed layout in the laser range So finally a look at the laser 650 Which has a smaller lounge of the front We have the sunroof of course and the roof light above that they go this with the shade open on the roof light and turning around This has a smaller kitchen here But you still get the same fantastic Dual opening fridge freezer on this side and in the centre of the caravan we have a and Exceedingly spacious washroom. I mean look at this. Look how much space You can have a party in here again with even though this one’s cylindrical You still get the additional hanging space Even though it’s cylindrical and then we go through to the head room a nice transverse double bed I’ve got on it and I as I say, I’m 5 foot 10 There was plenty of room for me. So you should be fine on this if you’re up to six foot tall This is with the bed pulled out and I find plenty of space to get around it You can push the bed back a few inches if you want during the daytime I’m not quite sure why you’d want to in this layout when? You’d only need to get past it get into bed But the options there if you need it, so There you have it a little first look at coachman’s 2019 model range offer further details in the description below or coachman’s websites do bear in mind This is for the UK market only, but I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what we have available to us Great quality products definitely worth putting on your shopping list If you’re in the market for a new Caravan really impressed with what I’ve seen I hope you enjoyed it if you did You know what to do.

  1. Please note that the doors in the Vision and the Pastiche are mistaken for two-piece doors. This is not the case – they are ONE PIECE DOORS cleverly disguised as two-piece doors! Apologies for the mistake. The description below the video will answer many people's questions, so please check this out. The Pastiche 470 (but with Vision upholstery) is the Coachman I would go for from this line-up. What's your favourite?

  2. Hey Andrew, do you think it's better to buy new or used? Advantages/disadvantages? I know you bought yours new. Unfortunately these are quite outside of my price range unless I financed them, which I avoid as much as possible!

    Appreciate that you think of your audience and review from a 'short' or 'tall' person perspective! xD

  3. Helpful that you've put in the time of the review in your description, but did you know, if you want to, if you put 1:41 it will create a shortcut link to 1 minute 41 in the video.

  4. I like these Andrew like the Pastich 575 though torn between that and the Luna Lexon 660 no rush though have 4 months to make up my mind

  5. Very unimaginative caravans. Those tiny fridges are a joke.
    Where are the murphy beds that would convert your bedroom to an office/workspace with a few fold up tables?
    Where are the drop down beds (as seen in camper vans) which means you could sleep on a proper mattress and not the jigsaw cushions?

  6. Clever idea with the fridge door! The build quality seems excellent. BTW you know we all 'hallooo' back at you, so please don't apologise. I bet Dougal smiled when he was taken away from the caravans (too new for lovely smells) and off for a lovely walk and ball-chasing session. He is such a patient, well-behaved boy.

  7. Nice video – same old boring brown caravans – I guess they know their market and I'm sure Fred & Mavis will approve.

  8. Very thoughtful design where practicality is balanced with elegantly simple design points. I wish we had similar models in the U.S.

  9. I think the Pastiche 470 would suit me very well. Love the separate dinette and I prefer a rear end washroom. Better start saving.

  10. Hi Andrew, The refrigerator door that opens from either side is fantastic, now convenient!! Yes these Coachman units are indeed well appointed!
    These brief looks are great. Your opinion is valuable. Good to see a number of units at one time.
    As always you & Dougal are the main attraction, one always wants more!
    👬🇬🇧🇺🇸😀😍😘

  11. Nice and unbiased Andrew, thought Bailey Phoenix’s recent launch was a bit over kill so lots of social media, yours was a introduction to the range, if you want more info go to their site👍

  12. Why would you need a fridge door to open both ways, people don't open their fridge door at home both ways because there is no point.

  13. We did look at Coachman when we bought our Bailey Unicorn Cartagena (twin axle) which comparable to the Laser. Bailey was cheaper, however, I can see why Coachman are more pricey. They are more luxurious at the top end. Great first look thank you – ooo I do like Coachman caravans, maybe our next one… Graham

  14. oh I love your reviews! we,re still trying to decide about the type of caravan we need for when we retire,,(only 6 months to go)..looking forward to going to the NEC in a couple of months,,,,,I,ll be like a kid in a toyshop..

  15. I only heard the price on one of these. 21thousand pounds, or 26,000USD. I didn't hear how many feet they are.

  16. Very surprised to see the worktop extension flap has returned after all the reasons Coachman gave for not fitting them. I'd still like one for my 575/4.

  17. I was offline the other day when I watched this. That was very restrained of you not to ‘hello’ in the mirror until the 4th caravan! 😄

  18. Another great video, thanks!
    Just a question I thought I'd throw out there. Why don't we see UK caravans for sale in the rest of Europe? I live in Spain, where (unfortunately) we have the added complication of the double number plate! All caravans weighing more than 750kg have to have their own number plate, documentation, MOT etc. Thanks!

  19. Reading comments on fridge door as vlog playing. Little confused. All is clear now. They need to make them for our homes to.

  20. Hey Andrew great video as always! I look forward to your first looks. I also found the ferry boarding video useful first time I towed over to France. Some advice please…..I bought a 2017 coachman and I love it! Had a couple of different manufacturers in the past but I'll be staying with coachman from here on in. My question is when is the most cost effective time to change it? I want to keep the value in the van but at the same time I don't too much depreciation. This is our 5th season now and we're absolutely loving it 😊👍🏻

  21. Are there any 6 berth caravans that are decent for families on the market at the moment or comming in 2019? That you know of please..

  22. Can I just say that your reviews are good. However, as a Woman who likes everything to have a place and tries to keep the kids tidy, i need to see how many cupboards are up top, what space is there under the seats, what does the fridge look like, how many shelves etc?

  23. American Rv manufactures need to wake up, theses caravans would sell like hot cakes. With all the windows & light it resembles air stream

  24. Those just CANNOT be the same brand as Coachman here in the states! Here in the USA they ARE entry level coaches. They are designed by Bud’s over beers using magic markers on cocktail napkins and then built by the rest of the bar as they continue get drunk with their buddies. Those look NICE! Seriously nice! Color me impressed! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  25. Omg I love all of these campervan, better than my house I could live there forever, I can't wait for my adventure,

  26. Nearly thought I had found my future caravan with the VIP or LAZER until I visited their website and clicked on their galleries….why oh why have they put in those flimzy night paper shades ? 🙁 Totally dislike those 🙁 Always funny to see comments from the american dreaming about our european caravans while we want theirs….Not sure they understood how was working our cassette toilet..lol….neither that they understood our small 50 liters fresh water and grey water tanks that stand outside of the caravan and need to be refill once a day sometimes even more if you are a family and that those same tanks need to be roll all over our campistes to be empty and fill….I think they'll just cry and regret their beautiful Airstreams….

  27. The Coachman Pastiche 470 is at the top of our list due to the L shaped lounge and dinette. I think it would be perfect for a couple of middle aged poofs and their two small dogs. We’ve never had a caravan before but it looks like this year we may take the plunge, but don’t know whether to go for second hand or brand new.

  28. terrible design.
    What is one wants to go to the main living space from the bedroom and your partner is taking a poo and wants his or her privacy?????

  29. Nice caravans, but the LED strip used by coachman could be so much better, the 'pitch' (distance between LED's) is too wide for the diffuser used – much better LED is available on the market.

  30. Although Coachman do not do an entry-level van, I think the best way to describe the Vision, is their most affordable.

  31. Mate your vids aren't great because we cant imagine the set up because you dont show enough ..you edit to the next stage when we need to see how you got there..if ya know what I mean lol jus saying

  32. Coachman caravans you’ve changed how I feel about motor homes. I now need one of your caravans. There cheaper than motor homes and have a big toilet area.the shower,fitted sink witch I love. I don’t think I want a adria no more. Andrew Bitton I enjoy your videos and viewing the caravans. Couchmans your caravans are beautiful from what I see.

  33. 14:32 A heated boot / coat? cupboard to dry your outdoor stuff in. What an excellent feature for creating even more condensation in the van 🙁

  34. 15:38 Yup, many of the caravan tours reveal unimpressive sinks. They've gone for flashiness over functionality and economy. And I now totally hate those push-button door locks – for their noise – especially as I now realise that they're not simply transit locks but everyday locks. I think I'd add magnetic catches to all the doors with those and include a rubber bumper so there's no metal to metal contact on closing.

  35. 16:20 that check-strap on the door is the height of tackiness. Mechanically useless and mechanically useless. What is it supposed to do (it won't) for its short lifespan ?

  36. 17:26 Radio-cassette would have been nice + SD card slot + Bluetooth. A better location – so it was handy to adjust while remaining in your seat – or does it come with IR remote control ?
