If you want a cheap coach then do not bother to read on. This coach is for those who are willing to invest in a robust design and have a highly durable coach which requires little maintenance. Compact grade laminate is often to be found in kids playground where is it is left exposed to the elements and hoards of rough children. 5 years on and the wear shows with sight discolouring and minor scratches.

If you see plywood of the same age then you will be lucky or it will be on its last legs. Timber products need protection from the damp or else they will fail. This can be achieved by regular painting and keeping it away from extreme damp conditions.

Any extra cost should be offset by the not having to paint the bodywork every two years.
