    I will never complain about a motorhome review on the Motorhome Channel ( or whatever it's called now) again after watching this tripe. I know it's a few years old now but I only saw it today, and if it's an attempt at humour it's pretty pathetic. I can't see how it could have done Romahome any favours either, although Dom seems to think his "caravan" was actually made by Citroen. Have I missed something or do you guys think this is funny?

    Apparently he's a 'reality tv star'. I think his IMDB pic says all we need to know ...

    Not very funny, hardly informative and raises the question why would you get someone who knows nothing to do a review.

    I like Dom Joly. His "livin' on a prayer" is an absolute rock classic. :whistle2:

    Typical Dom Joly humour, to be taken totally tongue in cheek, if anyone takes this seriously, well, I would be flabaghasted, and it seems some of you have taken this seriously, so my ghast is well and truely flabberd.

    Sorry if any of you disagree, but, this does appeal to my sense of humour and I thought it is very funny.

    I thought it was funny, even a place for the potato masher. (y)

    Just because I don't find something funny, it doesn't mean it isn't funny.

    Citroen will not be impressed with his presentation, or any motorhome/caravan dealer too I would guess.
    We saw him in the south of France several years ago and outside his Hotel was an Aston Martin super-car. My gut feeling was it belonged to him as it had a UK number plate.

    Well, all that review told me was he knows nothing about motor homes. And now I am still none the wiser about the van.
    What a waste of film and time.

    The best part of that was that he didn't once mention the converter. A narrow escape.

    Lets face it, the film was made to sell to TV and they never let the facts get in the way of a good story. It will no doubt have been meant to be entertaining to the average telly watcher but of course doesn't take into account those who actually know something about the subject. Remember we're a tiny minority of the population and I never fail to be amazed at the ignorance of non-motorhomers when we get into conversation.

    I don't believe everything I read in the newspapers either. I could rant on about lots of things media-related but decided years ago to simply ignore it and have a peaceful life.
