    So are British vans the most common in Funsterland? Well I had a wander around the rally field at Malvern and it wasn't as conclusive as i thought. Far more 'foreign' motorhomes on the field than I've seen in the past. So lets have a look, please tell us the nationality of your motorhome. We are talking about the Conversion not the base motorhome.

    I assume you mean where it was converted, not the base vehicle - otherwise it will be almost 100% foreign. :)

    On the two occasions that we've bought vans we've looked at layout rather than brand/country of origin.

    British on a Fiat. Well I think it was British being an autotrail but I don't think Fiat are built here. The most thing I wanted was a hymer as it is winterised but couldn't find the layout we wanted so went for British. Happy so far until the winter that is. An excuse to go south for the winter.

    Forget the Base Vehicle. A Hymer on a Fiat chassis is considered German in this poll, not Italian. :)

    Of the 9 we have owned since we started (not counting the VW's in our Youth!) we have had 4 British, 2 German, 2 Italian and 1 French - but the last 3 have all been Brits.

    British through and through - I would be surprised if Richard Holdsworth himself hadn't rolled his sleeves up and had a hand in building mine (y)

    A slow start from Germany, but they are in the lead now. Is it all over?
