jax,

It's a bit extra, but definately go for the 2.2hdi option, imho this engine is perfectly suited to the nuevo, it will rattle along at illegal speeds if req'd and has the extra oomph for getting up steep inclines with ease.

Fuel consumption with mine ranges from 28 - 32 mpg depending on weight of right foot.

pete.

Ah hah! Another dog show person- we almost need our own subgroup.
I have an Apache Rimini as dog space when on holiday, since I only have a campervan. I don't use it for shows since I normally only overnight the night before, and there is room for just me and the dogs. But when children are there as well it does the job. I can put it up and take it down on my own, tho it is a lot easier with 2.
It isn't enormous - I'm not sure what scale of entertaining you are talking about - but helps keep the messy stuff out of the van. When we were away last October we had gales and I thought the van was going to blow away, let alone the awning. But it was still there in the morning
If you get the Nuevo I'll be interested to hear how you get on with the dogs (how many do you take?) - I thought it looked a nice van but the coachbuilts don't seem to have much floorspace for 4 Weimaraners!
Going to Crufts?
Andrea.

I had an NR Motor Chalet Awning. They now sell direct from the factory in Todmorden.
Another alternative would be a basic frame tent. You can get some models which have doors at both ends. usually a lot cheaper than a 'made for' van awning.
I wouldn't consider a gazebo in anything but the calmest of weather, in fact some sites will not permit them, only proper tents and awnings.

stand alone awnings

Hi Andrea,
We dog nuts get everywhere, it's a disease .
I had a look at the Rimini on the web and it looks great with the extension on the side,ideal for a dog cage !!! Only problem is the height at the back , I don t think it's high enough for a coachbuilt but I will check .

We have 2 Shiba Inu's at present so don t need much room for them and they are so spoiled they sleep anywhere they please !!!! They are 9 and 7 so past it for Crufts but I still enjoy doing the shows anyway.

We will be changing from the caravan to the Nuevo at some point late summer so I will let you know .

Have fun showing
Jax
