Offering extensive all-year touring capability thanks to excellent insulation and Alde central heating, the Integra is a very luxurious A-class. But you'll need a big pitch...
Eura Mobil Integra I 840 EB 2008
INTEGRA is back – the popular flagship A-class from Eura Mobil has been reintroduced with a completely new look that is less controversial than its baby brother, the Terrestra.
Based on the new X2/50 Fiat Ducato in 40 Heavy guise with an AL-KO tag-axle chassis, this is a real monster of a motorhome with six wheels, virtually 29ft overall length and five-tonne gross weight.
Integra is also packed with equipment – and space. It has 40mm thick insulation and a 500mm thick double floor so you can make the most of the 1000kg payload.
The double floor also hides the air-conditioning unit, while in cooler climes you’ll be grateful for the Alde warm water central heating.
The cab seats rise electrically to match the lounge seating height when on site and the cab blinds are also operated at the touch of a button.
And the model we saw at the NEC show was a special edition which featured chocolate brown leather trim, upmarket audio equipment and a bar that glides up from the cupboard next to the passenger cab seat.
The 840 EB is the biggest of a five-model range – all with garages. It has a huge front lounge, central kitchen and washroom and rear permanent single beds.
Versions with a fixed transverse double bed at the back and/or a smaller lounge area are also to be offered when production begins next summer, while the new 850 layout includes an en suite changing area.
Specification includes a vast array of different lighting, including reading lights on swing arms that offer a whiter light and warmer mood lighting. Illumination is the Integra’s USP.
The Iso-Air ventilation system of the previous Integra has also been included, along with electric locking of the habitation door. And the classy cabinetwork of this prototype felt especially sturdy.
Outside the appearance is distinctive – especially the wide stainless steel grille – but not so much as to win or lose customers. Construction involves the latest wood-free techniques.
