Coachman Caravans was first established in 1962 as Ace Caravans. The company quickly grew and by 1972 was already a leading leisure vehicle manufacturer before changing its name to ABI Caravans. The name Coachman Caravans came into effect in 1986 as the company wanted to illustrate the quality it sought to bring to the market.
The launch of a new luxury range in 1988, the VIP was another triumph for the company. Equipped with blown air heating, a full oven, fully equipped showers and a luxury finish it was at the leading edge of design. The launch of The Mirage in 1989 as an affordable entry-level, high specification lightweight family tourer was also a roaring success.
The various ranges have continued to be improved both aesthetically and aerodynamically over the years, with the addition of state-of-the-art shock absorbers and flexible layouts that serve to meet the specifications and needs of today’s customers.
Coachman is always on the cutting edge and a collaboration with Bostik has enabled them to use advanced polyurethane which makes the caravans stronger and lighter and ensures the bodywork is fully waterproof. Coachman Caravans has a leisure vehicle to suit every need and with an emphasis on innovation and luxury is one of the leading manufacturers in the UK.
