  • 2007 4 Twin axle Touring 1645 1835 6.2 2.24 Yes Yes 4 The bathroom window is clear, strange. OK now for these lights. The caravan is, we think, near perfect for us but I will have to sort the interior light system. First off the lights above the sink are covered as soon as you open a top locker to put the cups and plates away. This is a poor design oversight. Easily sorted with some led push lights under the lockers, but Coachman got this bit wrong. It took us a while to sort out which switch does what too. The bathroom light switch is on the outside of the bathroom and those switches don't actually turn the bathroom lights on unless the switch on the fitments in the bathroom are already on. So you can turn the bathroom switch on but the bathroom remains dark until you go in and switch the fitments on, or you go in the bathroom and turn the fitments on but if you haven't switched the outside switch on you have to go back to the door to flick the outside switch. A total and utterly stupid set up in my mind. Then even better than that is the foot entrance light. It's a small pool light for just inside the door a great idea for sure, lighting up the caravan floor in the doorway. Once again though there's fun here, the switch for it is across the caravan below the drinks cabinet, to illuminate the caravan entrance you have go into the van and flick a switch on the opposite wall?? what on earth were Coachman thinking? Hang on it gets better the switch for the light in the drinks cabinet is above the entrance door. Now if this was a new van I would be back to the dealer and would suggest that the lights had been wired up wrong. They may very well be just that but surely the two previous owners would have said something. I will certainly be asking some questions. 5 Really do like the way it looks flat side windows give it a nice smooth look, and the graphics aren't in your face. Very comfortable. However there are only the two of us and there is ample room for lounging on the seating on an evening after a busy day. I have doubts that the L shape arrangement would sit four adults with comfort though. Maybe a wee bit cramped. two adults and young children possibly. 4 With the Jeep Grand Cherokee pulling and stopping it is no problem at all. But it is very susceptible to the compression ruts on the motorways where the weight of vehicles cause tram lines. I had a good look at the outfit and found the wheelbase on the van is wider than the Jeep and I'm sure this is the reason I feel the sway on the caravan as it's wheels don't follow the cars. It is constantly trying to run in the grooves. Not a major problem you just have to keep the speed down a bit when you feel it. It's fine at all other times on any surface just those blessed ruts. Maybe the fact it's a twin axle adds to the problem as well. 4 We did a long fortnight in Scotland in February and had some real strong winds and heavy rain. We had a little amount of water get under one of the front windows, nothing drastic it wiped up with a paper towel. We put it down to the severity of the weather but I will be keeping an eye on the damp readings in that corner. 5 Absolutely fits the bill. Loads of room, comfort and storage. <br />The one and only thing we would have liked that I can't sort myself is an electric ring on the cooker just in case the gas runs out mid cook. The microwave could save the day in that situation I suppose. I have fitted a roof mounted solar panel and controller. We use a few sites with no EH's so we need it. There is an air conditioning unit fitted.<br />I plan on getting some sort of vinyl tint for the bathroom window. 5 used Independent showroom James the owner was a pleasure to deal with a very knowledgeable and professional young chap. No stupid sales push just solid assistance. The staff member who actually showed us around the van during the hitch up was very methodical and assured. We had explained it was our sixth caravan and that we could work it, he had none of it saying he would not be comfortable unless he gave us the tour just for his personal ease of mind, a good sign that customers mean more than just money to the firm we thought. I have recommended the dealer to two friends and one bought a caravan from them. Yes

Absolutely everything apart from the really stupid lay out of the interior lighting system. My good lady loves the large fridge freezer. I like the under bed storage it is very good, with little of the structure to get in the way an ideal place to store the fishing rods. The shower is the best we have had in any of our previous caravans with plenty of built in shelving a really nice feature. I'm six foot tall and the fixed bed is ample long enough which hasn't always been the case. A really handy thing is the foot light on the side of the bed base great for those middle of the night trips to the loo, ample light to see by but out of the way so your not disturbing your partner.
