I've been looking into the complexity of choice regarding 2008 models and have put down some of my thoughts here

I'm inviting comment - do prospective buyers feel confused about what to buy?

Hi Motoroamin!!:roflmto:
We're parked on the camping field at Lowdham's (getting shower tap fixed tomorrow).
In front of us are parked 4 x 2008 models - Knaus, Dethleffs, Laika and Hobby.
All around the 6m mark with garages and rear fixed beds - look great from the outside although not impressed with the Knaus upholstery! Not seen inside apart from through the windscreen!:roflmto: However they look to be very tempting compacts.::bigsmile: ( no we're not about to change ours!)

From our experience it takes years of viewing and changing criteria to decide on the one for you!

We're chuffed to bits with ours but it took us about 4 years to find it!:ROFLMAO:

Hi Marie, were they on some mag test or just on display?

Neither. They were just parked up on the camping field last night when we arrived then some Lowdham's guys came and moved them over onto the grass to give us room to camp. Of course we had to have a wander over for a nosey!!!:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Very pleased with Lowdham's service as usual! Fixed the tap and other bits. Also washed the van for us (at a price)! Yes - we have a clean van again!!
