    We love our van but are watching and researching constantly for the next one. Endless hours spent over wine discussing what we want etc.

    It may be imagination but we think that at the moment there are lots of great new ideas, desins and innovation. Exciting times in the industry

    Do you lot agree?

    Slide outs in European vans are just around the corner.

    all they need is a good base vehicle and some better quality builders . get rid of that rubber roof idea . they are a bit slow in learning . :Tongue1:

    Bout 2 years ago (ish) we were on the aire at the windmill at Hondschoote before coming home next day, and there was a Frankia, 28 foot-ish with at least one slide out.

    I loved the look of it and scoured the interwebnet thingy for it when we got home - but no joy.

    Agree with original post, looking forward to changes, think it is about time for ultra modern designs
    Wife loves the new Hobby with the white interior and plastic type exterior decals
    I'm not convinced
