Information on all UK new caravan models

There are two main types of caravan:

The first is a touring caravan, which as it's name suggests is towed by a vehicle. The folding caravan is a variant of this group and is very specialised.

The second is a static caravan, also known as a holiday home or leisure home. This market has become more sophisticated and now includes log cabins and other more upmarket forms of holiday home.

Touring Caravans

A caravan has a chassis with either one or two axles and is designed for recreational living. It is traditionally built on a wooden frame with an aluminium shell. Although caravans are still built this way, there is more use of moulded fibreglass and plastics in addition to the aluminium panels. There are also some manufacturers who use fibreglass and plastic panels to the exclusion of aluminium.

Touring Caravan Safety

Towing

It is your legal responsibility to ensure that your towing vehicle is suitable to tow your caravan. The vehicle must have enough power and weight.to tow your caravan safely and legally. Any caravan dealer on www.caravan-dealers.com , in the caravan sales section will help you with towing information. You could alternatively use Towsafe.

Coupling

It is essential that the caravan is securely coupled onto the towing vehicle. It is a good idea that a procedure is adopted for safe use.

Running gear

Regular maintenance of your running gear including wheels and tyres is important. www.caravan-repairers.co.uk will help you find an experienced caravan technician , who will also be able to check your gas and electricity services

Caravan insurance

It is vital to insure your caravan for all risks. Your car insurance will probably give you very limited cover and only when towing. www.caravan-insurance.com is a great source of information on caravan insurance.

Caravan awnings

A caravan awning can double your space and give you the perfect outdoor extension. You should always see an awning erected before you buy and preferably have a try yourself. www.caravan-awnings.co.uk will give you a list of caravan awning experts.

Caravan covers

These will help you to protect your caravan investment. We recommend that you use a breathable caravan cover. This will alleviate condensation. www.caravan-covers.co.uk will give you more information.

It is over a quarter of a century since the first Coachman caravan was hand-crafted in Hull. Caravanning has changed a lot since then, but we continue to build all our caravans with the same care and attention, whilst improving our models every year. We started by taking advanced new materials that had never been used in the creation of UK tourers, to make every model in the new range stronger and lighter than ever before. We then redefined the shape of the Pastiche, VIP and Laser, modernising and streamlining the design to include large panoramic windows and bigger doors, which make the caravans some of the brightest and most spacious that you can buy. Finally, we added innovative new features, like mood lighting and a Truma Combi-boiler to ensure that our caravans are warmer and cosier than they have ever been. Simply put, our 2012 range of caravans are the best we have ever produced. Whether you are an experienced tourer or a first-time buyer, there is a 2012 Coachman to suit your needs.
