    What a load of cobblers!
    They obviously haven't seen the video of Hymer crash testing an 'A' class.

    I don't have an A class but it did read as a scare mongering to me, to get people to become 'members' for $139.

    We do have an A class but it is a European A class not an American one.

    An interesting article but difficult to compare the two as they seem to be two different beasts.
    We don't have slide outs are not over 30ft long and are not overwide.

    hi,i have an a class rv with a workhorse chassis and i know which one i would prefer heaven forbid if i had an accident but it would not be a european one.before i bought mine we had a look at a new hymer [110 grand] and the offside mirror had fell off.because it was held on by 4 self tapping screws into the thinest sheet of alloy,with no support behind.we thought a child or bigger person had pulled on it because the screws were still on the floor,and the sales people at brownhills were not bothered,it was a few years ago so they might have changed now.[hymer and brownhills]who knows ???? muz

    I wondered what the sunroof and rockets under my seat were for :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I dont hold much hope for any motorhome or there ocupants in a rollover situation, A B or C class, American or European.

    LOL, a bed frame and mattress over me head, with two metal framed reclining chairs on top of the mattress and a 'nice sturdy' fibreglass roof above that ......... must remember to remind Pete not to roll it .......

    Do you think I should wear me crash helmet?

    Calling Jaws - can you actually fit an Autocom to a motorhome?

    Absolutely right Snowbird, they are all built as light as possible and most would probably disintegrate in a major collision much like a caravan :Eeek::Eeek:
