Probably because I went to Dusseldorf but it is very hard to find or see anything new at these shows. I get aggravated by the ‘viewing by appointment only’ or ‘only when accompanied by a salesperson’ signs that the higher end manufacturers impose. I would say it is impossible nowadays for anyone to judge by looks who can or cannot afford to spend £200k on a motorhome. One thing is for sure, if I was spending that kind of money, it wouldn’t be with a company that makes me feel like I have to beg to take a peek.
Been without our vehicle for almost 10 months having traded it in and new vehicle now not many sleeps away. So, it was good to see Steve from the most excellent Britstops and Adam and Sophie at the equally excellent Motorhome WiFi. So, I did leave with a Britstops book, new Aires books for France, Spain, Portugal and BordAtlas for Germany from Steve and some good advice from Adam (see earlier post re wifi kit). Feeling prepared!
Two other ‘investments’ at the show – firstly, a Mr D Thermal Cooker (we have opted for no oven in our new vehicle) so a review will no doubt follow when we have a chance to give it a try. Secondly, a very neatly packaged Motorola Tlkr80 Extreme Walkie Talkie set (pictured) at £75 to include all the bits and pieces including ear and microphone sets. The carry case really sold it to me – what a sucker I am for a gadget.
Good to see RS Motorhomes back at the show with plenty of interest (and easy access to view).
