    When I read this I thought they would be cheaper than ones built in the EU... but, if my conversion is correct.. about £89k...

    A Punjab-based automobile fabricator has launched what is called a motorhome - a super-luxury caravan.

    Built on a Fiat Ducato chassis imported from Italy, the motorhome is equipped with a lounge, a tiny kitchen, refrigerator, a toilet and separate shower and a luxury bedroom to provide the personalised comfort of home and office for people even when travelling.

    Has it got seats on the roof like their trains?
    Seeing the way they overload their trucks,whatever the size Load capacity shouldn't be a problem.
    I expect the Indian customs will be imposing a punitive import duty on the chassis as they do with all other foreign vehicles.


    Don't specify a bike rack!

    Sorry, that is absolutely wrong... they pay for their education and accommodation.. many universities depend on that income..

    Foreign students pay average fees of about £10,000 a year and spend at least that amount while they are here. They bring in almost £8bn a year to the UK.

    Another report puts it higher
    “Higher education [is] a £12.5bn per year export industry for the UK”.

    They would be better options than the built in leaks, rotten floors and 'falling-off' bits on UK models.

    No air conditioning apparently, but a three speed punkah wallah as an optional extra :Wink:

    I bet the fridge will have to be seriously heavy duty.
