Anything to look out for?

The Omega is a 2014 model purchased new October 2015 taking delivery beginning of November 2015, so 12 month warranty started on that date.
I did notice stress on the panel corners after 3 months of ownership, then the cracks started to appear after 6 months.
A few of niggles were also found after usage, cupboard doors not closing (catches,) plastic trim falling off sliding shower door, then realised the grill/oven fan had stopped working, also noticed that the glass in the microwave door started to show a gap at the bottom between the door frame and the Alko ATC light had stopped working.
Taken in for first service, dealer had been informed of rear panel, dealer found 30% damp around large Heki skylight and staining on boarding, new skylight and boarding fitted.
That is why I have scored low

Would I recommend it, I have put yes, down to a good dealer sorting it out, if the cracked panels happened after the 12 month warranty ran out, then it would be no.
The review is after 12 months of usage/ownership.
I was lucky

Practicality *****

Does it meet your holiday needs?

Yes, both on sites and rallies off EHU.

Any modifications?

No

Buying experience *****

Where did you buy it?

What was the seller like?
