Wot, no A/S

Post by Askit on Fri Oct 30, 2015 8:41 am

I've just had the candidates for the 2016 campervan/Motorhome awards emailed to me and, in all categories, there is not one A/S nominated rolleyes Are these awards worked out based on the best on the market or is it more what's new or a matter of whose turn it is this year. Must say I thought the top van last year, the Chausson 610, was nice but left a (very) lot to be desired. Don't our A/Ss match up?

did anybody see the week's "Dave Gorman - modern life is rubbish"? He delves in to the products advertising themselves as "Product of the Year".

Basically you nominate your product for "Product of the Year" with an organisation that will charge you a registration fee if you are successfully chosen for the short list. They then group the short list in to categories of more than 1 but less than 8 and the products declare winner or runner up pay another fee that allows them to advertise the fact.

The groups themselves are also a bit strange. He held up two winners. Two almost identical "cold relief" products. One won the "cold relief product of the year", the other won the "best pharmaceutical product of the year".

Not that something like that could happen with motor homes would it.

Generally speaking these awards go to vans where there is a new idea or design change, mainly on new models which wants some doing.
AS have had their share of these awards in the past.
