Coachman

Coachman

Coachman Caravans was formed in late 1986 and, after establishing a manufacturing plant in Hull, the company began to create its first range – the Coachman. The caravans in this new range were well-equipped for the time, with contemporary, plush interiors, full mains electricity, a shower, oven and fridge. The Company was bought in 1997 by the Explorer Group. However, in 2001, the company’s management, headed up by Jim Hibbs, bought Coachman and it was an independent manufacturer once more. 2016 saw a further management buy-out led by Elliot Hibbs ensuring that Coachman remains in his family after taking over from his father, the late Jim Hibbs.

Coachman have received numerous awards at our Caravan Design Awards. Back in 2001 their Pastiche 460/2 won the 2-Berth Caravans under £13,000 class and they also won the Any caravan over £14,000 class in 2005. They had similar success in 2007, and in 2016 won four awards for all of their ranges. The following year the Coachman Vision 630 won the Large Family Caravan £20,000 - £23,000 class.

One of their retailers, Glossop Caravans, has also won two awards for their Coachman specials in our Dealer Special classes. First in 2016 the Glossop Caravans Coachman Festival 450/2 won the Two Berth Dealer Special class and the following year the Glossop Caravans Coachman Festival 630 triumphed in the Over Four Berth Dealer Special. 2020 saw Glossop Caravans once again winning the Over Four Berth Dealer Special class with the Festival 630.
