    Is it just me or does anyone else think that the interior looks a bit like an old style Winnebago without the steroids?:RollEyes:

    I've just got round to reading May's Which Motorcaravan and it seems to me that they've just tried to put as much 'bling' in it as possible to support the £70k price tag. I've never been a big fan of the IH emblem everywhere, but have always appreciated that they do build some very well screwed together 'vans, but this new van is just way OTT. Now if it had a much more 'contemporary' interior, still quality, but less bling, I bet they'd sell a few more to the well-to-do younger folk, but at the moment there's no way I'd touch one with a barge pole, gold plated or not (not that I've got that sort of money anyway!). :Eeek:

    Those lower-level cupboard/shelf thingies in the rear corners look in just the right position to bash your head.

    I didn't see this particular IH model at the NEC, but did have a nosey round another of their coachbuilts. To me, the build quality seemed excellent, but definitely over-blinged for my taste and those multiple IH symbols are an instant turn-off. One, or maybe just two, would be quite enough for us to get the message, thank you Mr IH!
