Caravan summary

What's good?

Very little when compared with my present van - Compass Rallye 530

What's bad?

Fridge replaced within 3 months, wallpaper peeled off walls above heater points, door lock did not fit securely and serious water ingress occurred within 12 months

Would you recommend it?

No

Style & comfort ***

Do you like the way it looks?

Van had a pleasant appearance

Is it comfortable?

Yes

Ease of towing *****

Is it easy to tow?

It was easy to tow with my Honda CRV 2.2L

Reliability & water ingress *

Anything to look out for?

Serious water ingress was identified at first service (12 months). Eventually after a further 6 months Coachman refused to repair under warranty. Having received totally unsatisfactory service, i part exchanged the van for a new 2016 Compass Rallye 530. Coachman water ingress warranty proved to be worthless

Practicality **

Does it meet your holiday needs?

It did until the water ingress problems were identified

Any modifications?

None

Buying experience ***

Did you buy it new or used?

new

Where did you buy it?

Franchised dealer

What was the seller like?

At time of purchase the dealer was fine. The after sales service could have been better
