The fact that the euro has lost 15 per cent of its value over the last 18 months does not reflect in the prices of new foreign motorhomes, at least that's how I see it, anyone see it differently?
Perhaps the powers that be i.e. Magazines -dealers-the usual pundits etc should start asking questions on our behalf.

Not long enough!
I think they are ordered so far in advance, they have to set a sterling price to cover ups as well as downs, but pay the European manufacturers in euros.

I'm sure things will continue to "slide" in Euroland. It was unrealistic to expect one currency to suit all those more impoverished economies.. How can Greece Et al ever hope to match Germany, for example !! Totally different lifestyles are bound to make for totally different economic standards and results..
Lets just hope the pound holds steady and we will all have a lot cheaper excursions!!!! :)

Just my opinion, Euro to keep falling, Dollar rally to continue.

USA and to a lesser extent UK have finished QE, Japan has just started, Eurozone to follow....

All sorts of bubbles waiting to burst around the world, speculators will repatriate back to the safety of USD.

Cheaper excursions on the horizon as oil price collapses, I'm thinking way below fifty bucks a barrel !

Saudi minister said that he'd sell at $20 /barrel
just to keep his market share.
It 's political as the Saudi's & yanks are normally reducing production to keep price up. They are doing it to bankrupt the Russians.

Guz-lopez, I think $20 a barrel is a real possibility. Saudis are determined to stop the growth in shale/fracking/ tar sands / renewables and will happily sell low until the new investment stops....
My opinion, clean energy is about to get a whole lot better and fossil fuels are on the way out !
