I can't read all of the features on that willow but I really like

• One piece composite walls, floor and ??? (Is the framing aluminum ?)
• Hot dipped galvanized chassis
• No electrical in walls
• AL KO independent suspension (with Nivomat ALC ?)

They are a family company in Melbourne who have introduced the Williow brand about a year ago Yes they are an Aluminium Frame.. Trail Caravans are new, they look like they are tied up with a boatbuilding concern
Wonderland who who appeared about a year ago are similar to a few others who use bright fluo colours
WEIRDEST thing I experienced was an AMERICAN COUPLE looking at the tents and ancillaries section outside the Main Exhibition Area. They were in their early 60's

Not in the US I doubt there is going to be much change, but it certainly is here. Especially using your phone to change temperature, other settings within the Caravan and on some the suspension settings

Here is a Willow RV being pulled by Ford Ranger with a 3.2 Diesel. Ranger was developed and designed by the Ford Design and Development Centre in Broadmeadows Melbourne, your Ranger appears to have a 2.3 Ecoboost, less options and lower GVWR. US Ranger was also developed and designed here. Ford does not produce vehicles anymore in Australia but has a Global design centre. Most touring/ towing speeds are 60-70mph, best compromise over long distances
