Hi all, Twice we've been away now in our Coachman VIP 560/4 and must say am disappointed in it's towing capability prowess to any of the last seven German 'vans we've enjoyed. There is a definite twitch in the tail of the car ( so the 'van must be not so stable ). There is a loss on fuel consumption of - 4 mpg. Have already noticed the marked difference in stature of the Coachman compared to the Hymer, the V.I.P is higher off the ground and certainly higher at roof level. In conclusion am very satisfied with the V.I.P as a caravan once on site but I do really feel the German 'vans are a lot more stable on the open road. Happy caravanning, indoors.
