That's great news Lizzie, looking forward to it.
Will you be in front of the camera sometimes yourself again?
We'll miss the launch, as we'll still be here in France on the 19th, but we'll be sure to catch up later in the week.

Didn't have chance Wednesday, so made myself comfortable to watch today's repeat!

A Chausson to begin - on a FORD! Yay!
Twin singles coming down from the ceiling - singles not for us, but very popular.
If you don't use the lower bed, will the top one come down lower?
Excellent rear end - kitchen, washroom, storage.
Good start!

Adria's wicked 6-wheeler next - very comfy-looking lounge, and plenty of room in the kitchen.
Why would you sit in the shower though?
Adjustable rear bed is nice - but if you're using Aires you won't be unloading the garage, so you're stuck with the high bed.
C1 licence - but better that, than a useless payload.

Dethleffs always deliver luxury, this one's no exception. Looks like the washroom's wrong way round though - no-one can go to the loo while someone else is in the shower.

Burstner have a good idea in turning the kitchen sideways, and they've got the washroom right way round too.
Clever bit of outside storage, and compact length too.

This Euro 6 business is confusing. It almost sounds as if the engines themselves CAN'T be built compliant with Euro 6, but need a "bolt-on" of some sort, and additives. Think I'll reserve judgement on how good an idea that is.

End of part one - please can we NOT have the sound blasted up high as soon as the ads come on?

Love Rapido's "in and out" cupboard. Well-kitted-out kitchen too, and a comfy UK-style lounge.
It HAS got a shower somewhere, hasn't it?

Honey, I shrunk the Carthago! Nice low bed, but not keen on the wardrobe over the foot of it. Some clever ways to use the space here.

Hymer on a Merc - what's not to like here? Looks a bit tight amidships though. "All very campervan" - and the shower looks smaller than the one in our Cavarno, which IS one. At 6.6m, I'd have expected a roomier feel.

Burstner with another good layout, and another right-way-round washroom. But we need to see HOW low those beds come down.

Thanks for the whistle-stop tour Niall.
Obviously, at a show like Dusseldorf it had to be that, but I hope that, later in the series, we'll see a bit more of vans being used, and tested on site. That's always a different matter than looking at them at the show (or in the showrooms).
Love to hear more about prices, but of course those shown on the windscreens at Dusseldorf wouldn't be the ones we'd pay in the UK.

A good start to the new series.

Thanks for watching, Tony. I'm glad you enjoyed it – and I hope everyone else did, too! It's on again tomorrow and on Sunday.
