We’re well into another new year and, if you haven’t already, it’s time to start planning your next caravanning adventures! If your touring caravan is getting a little worse for wear, maybe it could be time for an update. With so many caravans out there to choose from, it can be difficult to work out what it is that you really want. That’s why we’ve done the hard work for you, and put together our selection of the best new touring caravans to look out for in 2020!
Luxury: Coachman Laser Xcel
First on our list is Coachman’s new Laser Xcel 850 and 875! Almost as soon as they were unveiled, the Laser Xcel range won “Best Luxury Tourer” at the Practical Caravan of the Year Awards 2020. Hefty in size and weight, as well as equipment, you get a lot of caravan for your money. Our pick of the new features include an E&P self-levelling system as standard, as well as the retractable bed and Pioneer digital sound system!
Economy: Bailey Discovery
If you’re in the market for something a little, well, quite a bit smaller, you might want to take a look at the new Discovery range from Bailey! Compact in size, it’s still recognised as a caravan, rather than a crossover caravan, such as the Swift Basecamp. Being small and lightweight makes the Discovery perfect for younger drivers, and others who don’t have a B+E driving licence. It’s also available with a unique “wrap-around” air awning from Prima Leisure, which doubles the living space on offer!
Something wide: Swift Eccles X
The trend for 8ft-wide tourers doesn’t seem to be abating, although as we mentioned in our 2019 trends, you might be hard-pushed towing them along a tiny Cornish road! Swift have finally stepped up to the mark, introducing both the Challenger X and Eccles X to cater towards the market for larger caravans. Both models offer enhanced features, as well as allowing plenty of space for the whole family!
The end of an era? Lunar Ariva and Lunar Stellar
With Bailey ceasing production of the Unicorn Seville, as well as the end of Erwin Hymer Group models, new traditional end kitchen two berth caravans have become few and far between! The Lunar Ariva and Stellar models remain, however, the 2020 models offer new levels of comfort within minimal space. What these might lack in styling, they more than make up for in practicality!
Feeling the chill? Coachman Acadia
Fed up of turning on the heating for hours on end, only to find certain areas of your caravan chillier than others? If so, you might want to give Coachman a look! With the introduction of their new Acadia, which replaces the Vision and Pastiche ranges, they’ve become the first brand to offer Alde wet central heating on all their models. Perfect for getting warm and snuggly on those adventures where the weather leaves little to be desired!
Hopefully we’ve given you a little inspiration if you’re on the lookout for a new caravan in 2020!
