Coachman Vision 520 2016 – Private Sale
The 520/4’s habitation door is sited towards the rear of the caravan, so it doesn’t impinge on the lounge at all. As such, each front settee is a healthy 1.85m (6ft 1in) long, meaning you’ll easily get six or eight people in there if entertaining is your thing.
Lighting is taken care of by the usual quartet of adjustable reading lights, a pair of halogens sunk into the roof and unusual flush-fit strips fitted unobtrusively along the tops of the locker doors.
Meanwhile, the children can decamp to the side dinette when the caravan is set up in daytime layout mode, leaving mum and dad to relax in the main lounge, or linger longer over a meal than the children. The TV unit that separates the two is small, but still useable and equipped with adjacent mains and aerial points.
There’s little to complain about in the kitchen. It gets off to a good start with unusual linen-effect locker doors offering marked contrast to the lockers elsewhere in the caravan, and more semi-concealed strip lighting keeping the whole area brightly lit.
It’s surprisingly well-equipped for an entry-level model, too. The Thetford cooker has separate oven and grill areas, together with an electric hob hotplate and three gas burners, while the microwave oven hidden behind one of the roof lockers is standard fit.
The Thetford fridge can swallow up to 113 litres of groceries, too, while the all-important washing-up water is heated by a programmable dual-fuel Truma Combi boiler. The sink itself isn’t massive (and we find circular sinks are usually easier to work with than rectangular ones), but there’s plenty of worktop space and the locker and cupboard storage is better than average throughout.
There’s another strong sense of nostalgia in the Vision 520/4’s end washroom when you clock the once-common sight of a standalone cylindrical shower cubicle. The latest swivel loo, smart fabric window blind and butler-style washbasin bring things more up to date, however, and there’s loads of light and floorspace in here, with the large vanity mirror adding a further illusion of space.
The shower has the over-size shower head that’s currently en vogue, and a super-abundance of shelving, while the rounded shape and full-height doors makes it feel less encroaching in there than most.
The lounge settees that are so comfortable and accommodating by day transform by night into equally appealing sleeping accommodation. They’re both long enough to serve as single beds, and transform via an unusual base design (fixed slats on a metal frame pull out from beneath the offside settee, so there’s no danger of the traditional ‘collapsing slats’ syndrome here) into a double bed that measures a whopping 2.04m long and 1.50m wide (6ft 8in by 4ft 11in).
Further back the side dinette has a traditional cantilever bunk design, opening up a 1.83m long and 0.72m wide (6ft long and 2ft 4.3in wide) lower berth and one ‘upstairs’ that’s an impressive 1.76m long and 0.61m wide (5ft 9in long and 2ft wide). Make-up may seem like a bit of a long-winded faff in these enlightened days of effortless fixed beds (and you need to find somewhere for the extra bed cushions to live), but in truth it’s no hardship at all.
