    The thermal grading means very little in real life use!

    There's loads of grade 3 rated vans which couldn't be used in the Alps for skiing.
    There are loads of vans without an advertised rating, like ours, which shrug off an Alpine winter with no problems!

    Its all rubbish!!! The grading test does not represent real time use!

    The location of your water system components and the effectiveness of your heating system are the key factors in the vans suitability for extreme winter use.

    For normal winter use, you'll have few issues and you'll be warm and toasty whatever you buy!

    Thanks for your prompt reply, I feel much easier, its a shame the dealers have to be so evasive, our money is honest. We pick it up on the first of September, happy touring. many thanks, Riduna.
