Practical Caravan’s expert offers top tips for buying the best used 2005 Coachman festival caravan – an affordable way to own this prestigious brand

Coachman is one of the UK’s most highly rated makers, renowned for building solid and well-made caravans, even towards the lower end of its ranges. The Amara was the entry level to the Coachman stable, but was not classed as a budget range because of its impressive standard spec, even though it offered less kit than the Pastiche and VIP ranges. It was replaced for 2014 by the current Vision line-up, which still features the 380/2 layout.

For 2005 the Festival received new graphics and soft furnishings, with ABS front and rear panels plus alloy wheels as part of the sharp looks for the range. There was an AKS hitch stabiliser for the Al-Ko chassis, and upmarket extras including a gas barbecue point and external 230V socket. The interiors didn’t break any new ground in terms of design, but they were modern with a traditional flavour that added appeal. The wood finish was light with aircraft-style roof lockers, while the spec included a separate oven and grill and a cream Spinflo sink/drainer.


Model history

The Coachman name was introduced at the February 1987 NEC show, but it wasn’t until 1999 that the Amara range arrived. It was developed from the Mirage, which was launched in 1988 to offer a cheaper, lighter Coachman caravan. The Amara was designed to appeal to buyers who wanted high quality and spec at a competitive price, and proved extremely popular from launch.

By 2001 the Amara had gained a fixed-bed model, the 530/4, and as the range developed it became increasingly well-equipped. There were countless dealer specials based on the Amara, too, and by 2005 the standard kit included blown-air heating, a Status TV aerial, smart quartz clock and the latest Caprice oven with four-burner hob.

With all of that kit on board the Amara was no lightweight: even the Amara 380/2 weighed in at 1150kg fully laden. But now, just as when it was new, this is a popular used buy.
