I see they've brought back the stupidly high worktop over the fridge. That was brought out in 2014/5 and then dropped so why bring it back if it wasn't a success? Do the designers actually ever use their motorhomes?

I didn't think they ever dropped it Paul, once they did away with the elevated floor and the moulded high top roof they raised the fridge and made it an awkward arrangement IMHO.

I first saw it at NEC about 3 years ago and I've seen new ones since then that didn't have it, so assumed it was dropped.

That's some funky music in that video    up!

New colour for seat fabric, I can't see any other changes

I agree the designers do not appear to use the motorhomes, this is evident in the way the storage is organised.
Storage was so much better in my 2002 symbol. They dont make em like they used to etc.

That's the fabric we have in our 2016 Nuevo.

No the fabric is different if you look closely. It's more textured like a knit and I think this one is like a green colour. Also the fridge has been raised for the last 3 years or so since the bespoke roof was removed. It's the only way they can fit a fridge as the wheel arch intrudes so has to be mounted above. With the higher roof they used to fit the floor was l lifted which meant the wheel arch didn't intrude as much so they could fit the fridge level with sink and cooker.

If you notice they have one of the gas taps on with cooker cover down.  Is this to demonstrate how easy these taps can be knocked on.

also AS seem to have changed the tracker company to Trackstar (was Hal Locate)
so 2018 is evolution rather than revolution
