I'd settle for an Oxygen or even an Oliver.

The door looks straight. It does have a lip. With a ten year water ingress guarantee as well as the price tag I'm sure it's quality....would be curios as to the warranty/solution on window rock chips though!

The original article/review I read quoted ~ £45k (~$70k) Because of the small market each unit is custom made to the purchasers layout and decorating specifications. The interior layouts shown are "recommendations". You can find a few more interior designs on the web. The paint job is also custom and can be matched to your tug.

Though I really like it. I agree with some, its a bit big and fancy for my tastes. I'm more vintage and minimalist. Though I wouldn't turn down one as a gift.

Skate boarders.

Front windows or not, the frontbof a any towed trailer is going to get dirty. The only improvement over having a front window is having an opening front window

One of the benefits of being broke is I can dream the dreams! I still like it and don't care how much it costs or how much it weighs, because it will never been in my driveway. Sigh.

Rocks are not a big issue in Europe and I imagine the sloped front windows will get much less bug splats than upright ones - I've just switched from a fairly upright windshield car to a more normally sloped one and the reduction in bug splats is wonderful.

The handles on the back are a standard European fitment for manually manoeuvring a trailer - nowadays many folks use powered movers to do that, but tradition persists. Bear in mind that all European trailers have mechanical brakes with a handbrake and a jockey wheel under the jack, so manual manoeuvring of the trailer on its own is a normal thing.

What's surprising is that they haven't fitted any matching handles to the front as those are a standard European fitment too.

yeah ... it is gorgeous ..... But is nicer than an Escape 5.0 ? ....... just skimmed over the measurements and actually misread and thought it was over 25 ' .... but even so way bigger than anything we'd ever want .

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
