    Must be crazy but have part X'd my second Elysian for the new model.

    Major changes are raised chassis giving flat floor throughout with underfloor heating (like the Morello). Plus no wood used anywhere in the construction and again, because of the raised chassis more external lockers and more external locker space, some winterised and some not.

    You must have a lot of faith in the company considering thier trading history.

    They certainly haven’t had an easy past but they have never let me down and service staff are excellent. They really need to improve the accuracy of their delivery forecasts especially when bringing out a new model.

    Been to the factory three times in the last three months and clearly very busy. They downsized the facility and have standardised the range - you can still have custom if you want but I think they are pushing hard for people to take one of the standard offered layouts - which is what I have done this time.

    Well it certainly looks a nice van.
    Anything on build quality, insulation, is it the same system as hymer etc, PU foam?
    Do they use fixings, metal etc or is it bonded together?
    GRP or aluminium exterior, what is the inside skin made of?
    Structural strength, is it a frame on the body.
    waste and fresh, are they both in a double floor?
    any exposed water pipes under exterior floor
    Cab side Windows-Glass double glazed?
    windscreen shutter insulated? Heated between the shutter and the windscreen when the shutter is closed down?
    Alde heating throughout?
    I presume you must think the build quality is great to be on your third, wonder how they hold up after ten years etc?


    Update, I have answered some of my points as I've just had a peek at the spec although it just says insulated GRP construction, insulated with what?
