Following the first look at its all-carbon fibre CR-1 caravan, Indiana-based manufacturer Global Caravan Technologies has released the first interior shots of the new double-slide tourer from across the pond.

Watch the video of the launch event here.

Featuring a custom leather-wrapped ceiling and soft touch walls, GCT's first floorplan displays luxury and practicality, as the seating arrangement can comfortably fit eight people in the "rear entertainment lounge."

The CR-1's two sofas measure in at 88 inches and 82 by 59 inches in an L-shape arrangement, meaning that there's space for even the largest of families to sit in comfort.

Further stats for the interior offerings include a split configuration kitchen with an incredible amount of worktop space, a "full, walk through master bath suite" dividing the kitchen and bedroom, and two dressers, three wardrobes and optional glass ceiling available in the fixed carbon fibre-framed double bed sleeping area.

"We sought the most stringent requirements for designs and materials to complement the incredible carbon fibre structure," explains CEO and chief product architect Charles Hoefer. However, there's more in the way of an abundance of technology on offer too.

Charles continues: "With phone or laptop and any operating system, you can access and control nearly every feature on the CR-1 Carbon." This is thanks to a device neutral, smart power management system.

The CR-1 Carbon is one of the more premium editions planned for a new line up that's set to be launched in Europe too. Does it all sound too good to be true? GCT are also aiming to move into the motorhome market as well as creating more caravans for sale. Keep an eye out on these pages for further news.
