CMT 2013: Motorhome anniversary and premiere of the new Eurostar
Knaus presents new caravan flagship and Sport Style caravan; two “Celebration 25 Years” motorhome special models for the anniversary
At the coming CMT Holiday Exhibition that will be held in Stuttgart from 12 to 20 January 2013, Knaus Tabbert GmbH again presents several new motorhome and caravan models. The presentation at the exhibition in hall 1 focuses on the new-developed Knaus Eurostar caravan flagship. Right on time for the first exhibition of the year the former figurehead of the Knaus brand is spectacularly presented anew. With the new Eurostar 2013 Knaus presents a highly automotive caravan with three-dimensionally shaped plastic parts in automobile quality and with specifically developed LED rear lights. The caravan furthermore is equipped with extensive technical features that so far only had been used in motorhomes. The Eurostar is expected to be available at Knaus dealers early next summer at a basic price starting with Euro 34,890. With the Sport Style Knaus furthermore presents a comprehensively equipped special model of the popular beginner caravan in five layout versions. Providing a price advantage of Euro 2,000 the Sport Style is offered at a price between Euro 12,790 (400 LK) and Euro 18,190 (580 QS) and is now available at authorised dealers. The Knaus motorhome presentation at the CMT exhibition fully concentrates on the 25th anniversary of Knaus motorhomes. With the “Celebration 25 Years” special models two high-class Knaus Sun TI motorhomes with a price advantage of almost Euro 10,000 are waiting for exhibition visitors in Stuttgart. Dealers will sell both models starting from the end of February 2013.
Premiere of the new Knaus Eurostar – automotive-sporty exterior
The new Eurostar is the absolute highlight of this year’s CMT presentation of Knaus Tabbert. As a “motorhome in a caravan” it combines automotive design with trend-setting technology. The new Eurostar is specifically designed for the requirements and needs of technology-oriented customers who intensively use their caravan and attach great importance to individual equipment. The sporty character of the exterior above all is defined by the specifically developed LED rear lights with glowing elements. This further developed rear light generation in the future also will be a characterising element in other Knaus model ranges. The Eurostar furthermore features impact-resistant, three-dimensionally shaped plastic parts and a luggage compartment that integrates all the important connections (fresh water, 230V). Matching the automotive appearance, the corner steady mounts both at the front and rear feature high-quality chrome trims.
Functional-technical interior with extensive individualisation possibilities
The interior is characterised by a combination of function and technology. The Knaus caravan function floor integrates both waste-water tank and the autarkic package, which results in a low centre of gravity for excellent running characteristics. Furthermore, for example the kitchen especially in the Eurostar 590 FUS features the biggest kitchen drawers ever realised in a caravan. The large stainless steel double sink with integrated drip element, and the distinct bar element are additional highlights. The tasteful furniture concept is rounded off with ergonomically shaped seats in the seating group. The Eurostar in addition offers a wide range of equipment variants for individual customer wishes, ranging from a complex autarkic equipment with integrated fuel cell and gel battery, through to an arctic version. The new Knaus caravan flagship will be available at authorised dealers early in summer 2013 in three layouts (500 EU, 500 FU and 590 FUS).
