This film shows the TomTom Go Camper which was launched in May 2018 and which I have just received. Here I take it out of the box for the first time. It has a six inch interactive touch screen. The manufacturers say that it is a sat nav specifically developed to help explorers to travel worry-free, knowing that they are on the best road for their camper or caravan, whilst avoiding traffic along the way. New features include Wi-Fi®, which means that maps, software and points of interest (POIs) can be updated hassle-free; read-aloud smartphone messages, and integration with Siri and Google Now™; as well as integration with TomTom Road Trips.

The TomTom Camper includes Camper and Caravan World maps – which help make sure that you’re driving on the right road suited for vehicle type, size, weight and speed, while included exclusive camper-specific POIs from partners such as ADAC and ANWB ensure that you can find camper spots and camping sites along the way. One can also use the TomTom's route sharing platform, TomTom Road Trips.

Advance warnings on the TomTom GO Camper will let drivers know whenever they’re approaching a fixed, mobile or average speed camera, and remind them of the speed limit.

Mike Schoofs, Managing Director, TomTom Consumer, comments: “For people seeking great life experiences travelling in their campers and caravans, the all-new TomTom GO Camper lets you enjoy amazing journeys – with super-accurate estimated time of arrival. From built-in Wi-Fi to inspiring route planning with TomTom Road Trips, we’re convinced that people will love driving with our new device.”

The 6” fully-interactive touchscreen TomTom GO Camper is available to pre-order from TomTom’s online store and at selected e-tailers from today, and in-store from mid-May for €399.

In Arles, the stones have a story to tell. Arles isn’t just an open-air museum. It
is a city that is at once popular and artistic, generous and anti-conformist, rural and
contemporary. Its heritage is a reflection of its life.
A Greek trading post in the wake of Massalia, a Roman city cherished by Julius
Caesar and then Augustus, an influential centre of Christianity from the 3rd century
onwards, the capital of Gaul in the 4th century, a prosperous farming community
until the Renaissance, a major river port until the advent of railway transport in the
middle of the 19th century… Arles and its immense delta – covering an area of 758
km2, making it the largest municipality in France in terms of territory – have enjoyed
every golden age.
As capital of the Camargue, it is and always has been a place of transit, where cultures
meet and mingle. The city could have lost itself in the mix, but instead built an
identity upon it. Families rooted here for generations, Arlesians by chance or by
design, all of its people are attached to their shared land. Arles is a world unto itself,
standing sweetly and proudly apart, a legacy of the Rhone and a historical gem where
the art of living is forever reborn.
An invitation to travel… And to daydream.

The Rapido 8096DF offers a full double flat floor on an Al-Ko chassis. It has a large island bed plus a manual drop-down cab bed which offers 78cm of headroom once in sleeping position. The rear bed measures 1.95m by 1.58m. Rapido offers a central locking system of the drawers in the L shaped kitchen together with an extractor hood and 160 litre fridge. There is also a reversing camera with night vision and sound, linked to a doubleDIN Pioneer stereo with rear speakers.

The vehicle is on a 3,500kg chassis which will give around 380kg of payload but it could be reclassed to 3,700kg if necessary. The garage is enormous at 216 x 113 x 89cn but it can only take a load of up to 150kg. The garage height can be greater or smaller as the bed height is adjustable. Furthermore there is also a lot of storage in the double floor.

The lounge is very spacious and has attractive lighting.

Within the Optima de Luxe family there is a great deal of choice with 13 models. One can choose between highly varied layouts and space concepts - so if one does not like the side bed shown here, something else will be available.

A person who is multilingual is a person who cannot speak a number of languages - this is the basis for this little talk as I speak from personal experience which of course refers only to me and not to everyone!
