thats the reason we have a 5'er :Rofl1:
Thats obviously a very biased opinion:Rofl1:
Nowt wrong with the Euro Van
It'll make a great Toad:thumb::Rofl1:
horses for courses:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
Yes it would have been a different story had they taken both motorhomes on a tour of West Wales. In fact I think Clarkson is girly enough to let out some really big screams from the suicide seat:BigGrin:, Especially if May was driving:Rofl1:
Seeing that the camper-van he looked at was a Swift product I have to agree with his final comment on the van, "POSITIVLY DISCUSTING"
They did pick what looked like a titchy Euro van though.
The RV was massive but unless I missed something it just had a pokey sofa and a dinette no bigger than the one in my Kontiki. I also have a rear lounge so does this mean my van has more seating than an RV?
I like the robustness of RV's though. Ideally I would like my van as it is but with much more robust running gear, twice the payload, double the water capacity but I would still prefer a thetford and the 7 x 3 metre dimensions.
Do they make a Kontiki size RV? Oh I would want it to still do 20+ mpg:BigGrin:
Yes my Casio G Shock is positively disgusting compared to my Rolex, the build quality cannot compare. The casio is mass produced and built to a price that ordinary people can afford however it gets used more and keeps better time:BigGrin:
I know I am getting old but have I missed a page :Eek!::Eek!:
In the article May was comparing and contrasting two products, one was a luxury top of the range American product, the other a budget British product. My casio v rolex comparison was supposed to highlight the unfairness of comparing two product like that. but with the sting in the tail that in that case the budget product does the job better.
my thoughts 12k second hand euro van against a new 100k plus yank- what do they expect the result to be :Rofl1:Send 100k on a euro van then do the comparison :thumb: Local to me RS motorhomes / race vans compare very fav to any yank :thumb:
And doesn't need £100 services yearly which takes up to 6 weeks like my omegaoh:
If a product is not fit for purpose then it does not matter what the price is. It is my experience with the Swift that I own which was NOT FIT FOR PORPOSE and if it was not for my re-engineering and repair it would have been scrapped a couple of years ago.
I think you're all missing the real point: :Blush:
Delving deep into the psychology of it all....
In May's eyes the Euro van probably reminds him of a caravan ... and we all know how neutral those three guys are about caravans :Rofl1:
Lottery win needed for the new big American, but even then one of the bigger European A class would probably be more practical for our personal use. The only problem I am having is leg room in the dinette, so its probably a bit academic at present.
I have to agree the comparison between a new american rv and a secondhand UK Mh is absolutely not a comparison. He was taking the 'p' out of us again, but in a nicer way than Clarkson would.
Still no comparison , no slideouts , no genny, etc
We should speak as we find Doug, I have owned two Swift products and they were both excellent and very fit for purpose.
Tis worth remembering this is pure entertainment
To put it in to context, would you take a report in the Sunday Sport as having any news worthyness or indeed any actual value at all ! :BigGrin:
I do feel sorry for those three sometimes 'cos their script writers often make the look complete numpties !
Yeah :Rofl1: look at the finish no comparison :Wink: they can fit S/O and gennys
