The Coachman Laser 620 twin axle four berth caravan is top of the range and has many new features for 2014. It has an end washroom, offside dinette, nearside kitchen and parallel seating in the living area.
As you enter the caravan, in front of you, is the brushed stainless steel 175L fridge freezer that’s spacious enough not to have to shop regularly. To the left is the side dinette with three eye level lockers and storage space under each seat. It’s an ideal place to eat at and enjoy a view.
There’s a neat low level divider with a mains socket, television point, shelf and cupboard to the left and then the living area with parallel seating; the back rests are gently curved and give softness, rather than harshness with lots of corners. The chest of drawers is standard, has three drawers and a pull-out table.
The living area is light and spacious thanks to the large panoramic window and to the discerning choice of fabrics for the upholstery; it’s a relaxing and upmarket palate of silver/grey and lavender with aubergine highlights. There is a huge amount of space in the under bed lockers and the area makes up into a double bed; certainly with enough space for bedding in the lockers, but I wonder how many people would leave the bed made up and make great use of the side dinette. We noted the plinth level night lighting and liked it.
The cabinets are walnut, a warm colour which harmonised with the colour scheme. A slimline Avtex television with DVD facility and satellite receiver is included with the purchase.
The kitchen is designed for those who like to cook for two or entertain friends. The worktop space is generous and the appliances include a microwave oven in a dedicated housing, an oven and grill, one piece sink and drainer with a lift-up lid and chopping board and an Omnivent roof light extractor.
A large pull-out rack, four eye-level lockers with a linen look contrasting design and a number of base units will house a load of shopping and the necessary crockery and pans; thankfully this is a twin axle caravan.
The shower room is spacious indeed, and sports a sexy looking black shower tower with LED lighting in the round shower. There’s plenty of room to preen, room for toiletries, and we’ve seen smaller wardrobes and drawers for sale in high street stores! The basin has a cupboard below and a set of open shelves to the right. Another cupboard holds the free standing dining table. Heating is from a radiator and convection.
Green credentials are of increasing importance in caravan design and the Laser 620 has an 80 watt roof mounted solar panel, direct and indirect LED lighting throughout the whole caravan with 12 volt LED reading lights.
For added comfort and practicality there is an under floor insulated 36 litre water tank and Alde central heating system with a digital control panel. The exterior key fob also controls the awning light.
Security features are always important and this caravan has two AL-KO Secure portable wheel locks, AL-KO ATC system (active trailer control), a remote control alarm system with PIR and tilt sensors and Phantom Pro-3 satellite tracking system.
Verdict: Top of the range in luxury and style – a perfect escape for two adults.
