They don't appeal to me either BUT it's good that there is something a bit different to the "British Standard Caravan" so that there is a choice for folk. It may even bring new caravanners to the pastime.

Why do caravans have to be a standard colour? You can choose a car from many different colours so why not a caravan? The internal styling is clean and sharp and might appeal to a much younger audience, which is a good thing in my book.
Sadly I wouldn't be surprised if sites start banning them as they "detract from the norm".

The answer is very simple. A white caravan is cooler as it reflects heat so no need to spend thousands on an air con! A black or dark coloured caravan will have you sweltering within minutes. This means you have to drink your beer quicker than normal.
