This is actually an excellent video. The guy tells everything one can tell within 13 minutes, and everything was correct. And the footage is nice as well.

And his enthusiasm was worthy of a typical car-loving Italian. Yes, I like Italy and the Italians. You can tell that they have gasoline running through their veins. ;-)

Interesting to see the gerry cans with all colours except shale blue.

Some interesting snippets in that one, if I heard him right.

Removable winch has 18m of rope.
They're working on a bracket so that the removable winch can be mounted in the rear on the utility rail.
The trinkets hanging off the exterior utility belt are all aftermarket.

trinkets ...more like after thought!!

Having said that.....the roof rack options look OK & the 270 degree awning looks very good, very easy to away etc.

I ended up with a Howling Moon standard awning after the supplier (who sold both) put me off one of those swing out types. They'd been having issues with cracked mounts.

The reason I mention that, is when they were folding it away, I was surprised how far the beam dipped as it was bought around. Seemed to be quite a lot of free play in the mounting?Screenshot_20220920_130138_com.google.android.youtube.jpg

Yes, those arms certainly seemed to sag a fair bit. Not sure what brand they are but i will be going after market when the time comes.
It also confirmed my suspicion that a 270 awning has to be mounted really high to clear the rear doors which does not bode well for getting it into the garage.
May have to be a double hinge 180 awning. Like this one

I agree, though I'm looking closely at the Bush 270 - like this one .

For me, something simple will suffice.

Less costs, less weight, less drag, no-fuss.

Just watched the Italian guy’s video. The IG’s are looking good.

Having seen the accessories hanging on the side of the Trailmaster, it’s good to see that IA has teamed up with Poundland as an official supplier !!

I will be honest and say they looked bloody awful, and gave the impression they had been hung there just for the sake of it. Someone needs to tell the people who staged the display…less is more.

Those winches looked good though, and I know Red Winches are well thought of.

Those are clearly the closest to full production vehicles IA have and they are looking nice. Interest refreshed !!

Come on Ineos why does it take a random Italian guy to keep my interest up, this is your job surely, it’s your product.

We used to go to Italy every year prior to COVID. Last visit was September 2019. It takes 25-30 hours to get there from Australia but worth it.

I have ordered mine with the tow hitch on the front so I can use it for moving caravan, trailer and boat around easily. I have been thinking about the removable winch as an accessory that I only take when I am going on a trip. Mounting on Utility rail would be great as I wouldn't want that flying around inside the vehicle in the case of an accident.

Those kind of wings that needs legs and guy ropes are all fairly light weight and flimsy. Made to a price and a market. I m going with a Bush Company 270XT Max or similar.

That is nice, £1,895 in UK, so just over 3 times the price of the Ineos one.

AUD$2,650 here in Australia which is GBP 1,558 so pretty similar. Extremely competitive market in Australia.
