    Took delivery of a new transit DROPSIDE pickup today, bloody hell is it ugly.
    Cab ok, but to be honest would not like it as a MH base vehicle.
    Granted it is a base version, a working tool really, but the cab is AARGH, the front reminds me of something I can't put here.

    Glad I don't have to use it for many miles.

    Looked at the chassis, and it is the same as our old 15 yr pickup.
    Suppose no need to alter what sells tho.

    But I'm not licking it at the mo, may grow on me, but it's a work tool so does not really have to

    Each to their own, I saw two motorhomes at a dealers here in France and thought WOW that puts Fiat into the shade

    I thought the driver position and visibility were fantastic the last time I sat in one.
    The tall windscreen is great for taller folks.

    Most cabs, including Fiat have you leaning forward whilst driving otherwise you can't see more than 20 yards down the road! You shorter people should try driving everywhere with your sun visors down to get the idea!

    I think they are rather cute like a smoothed off Peppa Pig, not like the chinese deviant looking FIAT with slanty eyes and its awful snout stuck out in front, I think they are so ugly I had to go and buy and A class.

    They are soooo ugly. We're told it's for the American Market. Europe is so small, we don't count?
