The Coachman Vision 570 is a new layout for the 2016 caravan season and with two separate living areas it promises to be ideal for larger families.
It’s a very flexible layout, nifty, with a centre shower room on the offside, a centre kitchen on the nearside, a multi-functional rear area and the traditional front living area.
The rear has parallel seating with a bunk on the nearside. A wardrobe is on the back wall with drawers under it and a pullout table. There’re facilities for a television and one blown air duct for the Truma 6kw heating and hot water system.
The kitchen features an 800w microwave, just about out of reach of a young child; a dual fuel hob with oven and grill; a contemporary chrome-look ceramic tap and a glossy splash back. The linen-look finish to the top lockers and a drawer are purely decorative and although there isn’t a large workspace, if you’re tidy, you’ll make it work.
The shower room has a fully lined shower with a water-saving shower head and an LED light; a vanity basin with a chrome tap and a modicum of storage space. The single blown air duct will be welcome to take the chill off.
There are options for living and dining as it’s such an adaptable layout, but the front end has a chest of drawers and a pullout table, a television and mains electric socket on a pod above the triple windows, and another power point on the front of the seat, along with two blown air ducts.
The interior furnishings are practical and restrained and commensurate with the layout, market position and price point.
Verdict: This is a very versatile layout. It’s good for families, especially those with young children, with the juniors using the bunk beds. Although designed as a five berth, there is an option for a sixth berth in the rear on the nearside, whilst offering two spacious living areas during the daytime.
