2012 Coachman Prism 2150LE Review

by RVGuide.com

The luxurious, easy to drive Coachman Prism Class C motorhome comes packed with unique styling and amenities that are sure to draw many an envious glance as you drive by.

If making a decision is a cause of concern for you, then you’re in luck – the Prism only comes in two floorplans. We flipped a coin and decided to take a closer look at the 2150LE. This model has an exterior length of 25′ 4″, exterior height of 11′ 1″, and exterior width of 96″. It has a GVWR of 11,030 lbs and GCWR of 15,250 lbs. As well, it has a fresh-water capacity of 50 gallons, gray-water capacity of 28 gallons, and black-water capacity of 28 gallons. The Prism also comes with a 20,000 BTU E.I. ducted furnace, 13,500 BTU Brisk roof air conditioner, and 3.4 KW Guardian LP generator.

Built on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis, the Prism is quite fuel efficient. With its molded aerodynamically styled front cap, this Coachmen class C motorhome cuts wind resistance and while retaining a polished automotive look. To ensure that it is lightweight, durable and moisture resistant, its substrate sidewalls are made from Adzel Superlite material. Adding to its sleek look are frameless tinted windows that block out the sun and the heat.

If you want to make the most of your time outdoors, the Prism comes with a host of features that make it hard to come inside. Lounge around under the One Touch Power awning, which is easy to open and close, and comes with adjustable arms so you can adjust it for more shade and rain water runoff. There are also exterior speakers that let you listen to your favorite tunes while hanging out under the full-length awning.

Got lots of stuff to bring along with you? No problem – the 2012 Prism has warehouse exterior storage that offers you lots of exterior space. This will come in handy, especially if you’re planning a longer vacation.

Other exterior features include backup camera, outside shower, patio security light, auto power entrance step, towing hitch with 7-way plug, spare tire, and stainless steel wheel inserts.

The Prisim’s interior has been thoughtfully laid out and decorated to ensure you have the proper amount of features to remain comfortable no matter how far you are from home. The interior of this Class C motorhome is enhanced with a hardboard vinyl ceiling, raised panel upper cabinet doors, flat panel lower panel doors, residential cabinet hinges, oil-rubbed bronze cabinet hardware and night shades throughout.

The drive to your destination won’t seem that long up front in the Prism’s cab. Reclining pilot and passenger seats offer a comfy vantage point while driving. And because safety comes first, there are also driver and passenger air bags. A touch screen dash radio and back-up monitor are within easy reach, and cruise control and tilt steering put you in command of the road. Other cab features include power windows and locks, dash air conditioning and remote exterior mirrors.

The open concept living/dining/kitchen area in the Prism has everything you need for relaxing. The Dream Dinette is the perfect place to hang out or eat your meals. As well, you can choose to add on a large LCD/HD television and DVD player that has been made specifically for motorhome use with controls on the front in case you misplace the remote. As well, there’s a bunk over the cab, perfect for the kids or overnight guests.

In the kitchen, you’ll find a three-burner cooktop and a large, flush mount, double door refrigerator. As well, it comes with a built in OTR microwave that’s perfect for heating water for a cup of coffee and making a quick snack. Another handy addition is the oversize sink with high rise faucet, which gives the kitchen a contemporary look while making cleaning cookware a snap. Other features include one-piece Thermofoil countertops and a flip-up countertop extension.

Toward the rear of the Prism is where you’ll find the main sleeping area and the bathroom. You’ll rest easy on the corner double bed – ideal for two. The bedroom also comes with overhead cabinetry and a closet to store your wardrobe, as well as a privacy curtain.

There’s also a fully functional bathroom in the well-equipped Class C motorhome. Here, you’ll find a foot flush toilet, lavatory sink, medicine cabinet, shower, power bath vent, clear acrylic shower door, and skylight over the shower.

The Coachmen Prism 2150LE Class C Motorhome sells for around $68,938. For more information, visit http://www.coachmenrv.com/.
