Carthago Chic e-line & Chic s-plus motorhomes

The Chic e-line/Chic s-plus new-generation range impresses with its new furniture design, blending emotion with elegance. There is a choice of two new noble style worlds: ‘linea chiara’, which scores with contrasts of brightly shining ivory and a dark Noce Fino wood finish; and ‘linea nobile’, which focuses on a higher proportion of Noce Fino wood finish with lighter accents.

In the cab, the leather dashboard emphasises the integration of the cab into the living area. And, the drop-down bed with bright leather elements and LED spotlights, also blends in perfectly.

A special highlight is the integrated ship’s clock set and the new electric windscreen blind with programmed privacy and sun visor function, which provides insulation and darkening at the same time.

The designer kitchen counter is shaped in a vertical wave form and the glass display cabinet separates the living area from the corner kitchen. At the same time, the pull-out kitchen compartment enlarges the worktop, providing extra preparation space.

Thanks to the clever electric central locking system, the pull-out compartment, bar locker and shoe locker can all be locked automatically, making everything safe and secure while you are driving.

Finally, in the bedroom, the flowing shapes of the roof cupboards and the ceiling canopy with ambient lighting creates a cosy atmosphere. The rear wall design with leather trim and large mirror elegantly rounds off the stylish interior.

Carthago C-Compactline 144 QB motorhome

For the new model year Carthago has once again improved the C-compactline super-lightweight range, offering an attractive exterior, state-of-the-art lighting with LED daytime running lights and high-quality design. Despite its narrow body width of 2.12m and low weight, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort.

The high-quality premium technology with a fully fledged double floor ensures a high payload even in the 3.5-tonne class.

The stylish front look and the modern radiator grille make the C-compactline a real eye-catcher. A harmonious overall appearance results from the optically enhanced side windows. Plus, a smooth transition from the windscreen to the now white sidewall with striking C-brand creates an atmospheric appearance.

In the C-compactline 144 LE and 144 QB models, the windscreens have grown to 24 inches.

All models have living room tables with an elegant chrome piping in the table edge. The new optional lithium-ion on-board battery, which has a significantly greater electrical capacity, is extremely durable and reduces the weight of the motorhome by 12.5kg.

Carthago Liner-for-two I 53 motorhome

The innovative LED daytime running lights and the Carthago tail lights with LED running light indicators promise better visibility and more safety through the quick recognition of other road users.

This motorhome features a spacious wrap-around seating area in the rear lounge, as well as a curved kitchen with a bar and robust glass surfaces. To round things off, there is a fully equipped washroom that includes a changing area and a good night’s sleep is guaranteed thanks to an electrically lowerable drop-down bed.

If you feel comfortable with a left-hand drive vehicle, you might want to make use of the opportunity of the new office and television room package.This allows you to work in the cab area, while the TV is playing in the lounge seating area to keep others entertained.
