Lex et al -

Thank you so much - VERY interesting. I LOVE to see how things are done elsewhere and to see new ideas. That is SO COOL. We are in California, and our daughter married a German guy and lives outside Mainz. So,when we visit, **FOR ME** it is fun to go to an OBI or Hornbach store (Like Home Depot / Lowes here in the states) to see how THEY do stuff and what they have for sale!! And now that we are getting our new Scamp, my NEXT trip to Europe will include some trailer sales places and camping supplies. Yippee!!!!!!!!! More new things to see!!!!!!!!!!!

(I **DO* also enjoy the REGULAR sights when travelling, but seeing the "guy" things is just bonus for me!)

The Wind still seems to be alive.

Lex, thanks for the virtural tour.....do you have a website for the Cockpit? Do the Dutch somehow lead the pack in designing caravans? We don't seem to put the same emphasis into styling here in America. I have looked at the Eriba Puck and BIOD online. Quite impressive. Is there another manufacturer in Europe or Australia that is worth looking at (drooling over).

Thanks for the info,

Lloyd

Lloyd, I think the Cockpit is already obsolete. The Wind is still there.
This firm does the innovations, but there is nothing new yet.

I like this Dutch trailer: http://www.avento.nl/pdf/Avento%20brochure.pdf , fiberglass roof/front/back

Maybe you like these: http://www.jurgenssafari.co.za/ from South Africa.

Lex,

All I can say about the Avento is unbelievable....why can't manufacturers of rvs in N.A. put together a website like that! It boggles my mind that our website builders are so skimpy with details, pictures and information in general. If they were more thorough I think people like myself wouldn't ask so many questions on forums such as this. It doesn't cost that much to hire someone to create an eye popping website with today's technology..Certainly one would need to hire a decent photographer with the right lenses and flash equipment but I'm sure it would be worth the cost in sales generated from a knock out view of their product. Especially in light of the fact that many of our "egg" manufacturers sell only factory direct. It is not like I can go to Alberta or British Columbia from Ohio to see the trailer of my dreams.

Thanks so much,,,,I will never own one and I will be very very happy with my Trillium once it is built but the Avento is just another example of "Style Every Mile".

Lloyd

that's sweet! I wonder if they would consider a North American manufacturing facility.

At the moment the annual Dutch Camping-and-Caravanning fair is going on.
There is some fiberglass news:
- 2 small molded trailers,
- BIOD introduces new production method,
- molded edges and corners, not molded panels: Paul and Paula (German)

Report http://biod.info/2006jaarbeurs (sorry in Dutch, English on request).
