Mention American motorhomes and most people think of the coach-sized, luxurious A-class, beloved of movie stars. However, this 30ft Coachmen Concord 275 DS is described as a ‘mini motorhome’.

It’s as big as the larger European A-classes, and it’s against these that it is best compared in terms of price, size and specification. In terms of design approach, European and US motorhomes are poles apart. What marks this Coachmen out is that it offers superb living space and standard specification in a relatively small package and at a comparatively low price. Yes, it costs £70,000, but if you spend months at a time in your ’van, the Concord can be driven off the forecourt and into the wide blue yonder without any optional extras.
