Essential Guide to 2021 motorhomes – Carthago motorhomes
Carthago C-Tourer I 143 LE motorhome
The C-tourer is the all-rounder among Carthago motorhomes.
It provides layouts for the 3,500kg weight class and layouts up to a gross weight of 4,500kg, scoring points for high payload.
New for the 2021 season onwards, some models are now also available on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter premium chassis as well as the Fiat Ducato chassis.
The model range impresses with the optional full LED headlights, which give the vehicle a sporty and distinctive look, and blend in perfectly next to the radiator grille.
Inside, the new dark floor design with the ‘SensoRigato’ PVC covering impresses, while the elegant TV cabinet – also a new feature – integrates perfectly behind the L-shaped lounge seating area.
Other excellent features on the model range include new clothes hooks, a swivel-out shoe cabinet – with room for four pairs of shoes – and spotlights to provide ambient lighting, which can be controlled separately from the main lighting.
An elevated kitchen worktop located behind the L-shaped lounge/seating area elegantly separates the area from the kitchen with its curved counter. To enable a cooking experience like at home, you can also choose a gas oven with a grill function in the kitchen base unit.
The combined washroom with the newly integrated shower shelves provides room for care products, and thanks to the new towel rail in the roof dome, you can hang up your damp towels to dry after showering.
In selected models, pull-out steps include extra-wide treads and additional storage space so you can conveniently access the lengthways single beds in the sleeping area.
The new storage areas on the left and right above the bed integrate perfectly next to the overhead storage cabinets.

Carthago Liner-for-two motorhome
The liner-for-two represents a unique four-room concept with an exclusive round lounge seating area.
A modern cockpit with the option of conversion into an office or a TV room; electrically lowerable single beds; a comfortable luxury washroom; and a large kitchen with an elevated kitchen counter provide even more comfort.
Sporty/smart alloy wheels are available for both the Fiat Ducato and Iveco Daily chassis. New full LED headlights are standard in the model range. In the interior, the models are brightly illuminated thanks to the additional, optional Heki III above the lounge area.
The luxurious kitchen has two additional highlights for the 2021 season – the standard 153-litre fridge with separate freezer compartment and a door that opens at both sides, and the choice of a gas oven with grill.
