I wasn't too sure what to expect, but the colours and materials used inside many of the new vans are seriously smart and although some of the layouts aren't what you usually see in UK caravans, it's refreshing to see something different and definitely gets you thinking about how the space could be used. Some of them really do have wow factor. You're right, all the models can be bought in the UK. Hopefully, we will be able to review some of the 2017 line-up.Raywood said:We have looked at them at a number of shows. They always look well made but we were not sold on the colour schemes and most of the layouts.
The huge range is baffling and probably if they want to mount a serious attack on the UK market they need to decide what models are best to sell over here and build up from that. Possibly they could follow Knaus and build a couple of UK specific models to get people interested.
I do get the impression they simply made the entire range available and were just happy to sell a few if people ordered them but were not seriously interested in our market. They also do not appear in any test reports which would help if they got positive reviews. Possibly the booming market with the domestic manufacturers struggling to keep up has made them look again.
Even though the UK is technically part of the EU(though not for much longer) we still have that very expensive strip of water between us and continental europe. In addition the importer may have to customise the caravans like changing the mains power sockets to UK three pin devises, and an umber of other items than might need to be changed before the van can be sold in the UK.Buffers said:we have a 540 UFf in the excellant range. Also the comment that you need a heavy tow vehicle a lot of the ranges have a unladen weight of 1200 Kgs and a 300 Kg load allowance. This is at least as good as a lot of the UK vans. I cannot understand why the UK agent charges so much for the vans as the spec is the same as the rest of Europe. One can only assume that the UK agent would have the same discount as other dealers.
