As part of our Classic Gold series, we're looking back at some of the best caravan and motorhomes of recent years. We've reviewed these models in the past, but we want to hear from you about your experiences.

We first reviewed the Coachman VIP 560/4 in February 2014, so we're going back a bit of a way with this one. That said, when we reviewed the model the first time, we did highlight its excellent build quality, so we'd love to hear from those who can testify to its ability to stand the test of time.

At the time of review, Steve and Lisa Arnold from Northamptonshire had this to say about the Coachman VIP 560/4: "Best caravan on the road is the Coachman VIP. We have had three new ones, but the 2012 model is a fantastic caravan in every way. We also use a Specialised Elite towing cover, which fits perfectly. We recommend this caravan 100 per cent."

The layout of the caravan was a considerable highlight, with plenty of space for Steve and Lisa, plus their small dog. Indeed, the spacious interior was given a 5/5 rating for the Coachman VIP 560/4.

Overall, Steve and Lisa described it as a "fantastic caravan, 100 per cent".

Other aspects of the model that we'd love to hear more about include how it stacks up against the latest releases, so if you've owned or stayed in a Coachman VIP 560/4 in the past, we'd love to hear from you.
