    Those pics are taken in China. Look at the buildings and the way they support the trees. Only in China

    Not so sure about buying something like this without going over to see it first though - it will be a brave man who is the first to try it.
    I fully agree. Look a few years back they showed a Chinese hummer look alike. I open the bonnet and then closed it again but I didnt see that the arm holding the bonnet up was not properly back in its spot. I put a hole into the bonnet with the arm when I closed it. (Walked away very quickly). But Their products are getting better and better. 15 years ago I wouldnt have bought a Kia, bought one in 2008 (Sedona) and its really a very good vehicle. And just look at the amoutn fo Kia's on the road today...

    I take you point.

    Then they must have bought an SA model shipped it out there and then taken the photos.

    But the individual component pics still dont match the complete van. The slide open burner cupboard shows a window above it. This means the kitchen is at the right rear of the van?

    The suspension pics show an awful design with the bottom cups at an unnecessary angle.

    Now take that design and fit it to the van in the picture. The van should be standing at least 200mm higher.

    Still cant say what the finished product looks like.

    Conglomerate of pictures, they don't tie up at all. Mudguards, window frames ... not the same.
