    I bought one of these and took delivery just after new year. As I write I am sitting in the van at roslin CL site. A few points I have noted while the new truma heating system does a great job of heating the van it is painfully slow at heating the water you only get enough for a 5 min shower then have to wait 30 mins for it to heat up, it only heats the water to 60c, a real deal breaker I wish I knew before I bought it thinking of having a whale system fitted as use on a CL site you need hot water!. The locks on all lockers feel cheap and sticky in operation.on the plus side the grade three insulation is great no cold spots even in Scotland in February , the wash room is the crowing glory a lovely big sink you can use. And a wardrobe big enough for all the winter coats and shoes. It tows well and looks great. Shame about the water system .

    Looks a well finished van, in the Coachman tradition , but when are the designers going to design . This 4 berth layout is now standard in all makes of van and they don’t seem to be able to get away from this design. One more gripe I feel the washbasin is too close to the wardrobe which seems to overcrowd.

    Hi Ray,

    the price of the 520-4 is in the small print on the page above, it’s £21,595.

    I’ve now added it to the main body copy though to make it more prominent.

    many thanks,

    Caravan Guard

    The 520-4 looks very nice but how much is it? seems to me you don’t want us to know.
