For the eighth consecutive time, Fiat Ducato’s camper obtained the prestigious title of “Best Motorhome Base Vehicle 2015”, which was awarded by the readers of “Promobil”, a specialised German magazine that has been considered a barometer of trends in the motorhomes sector for more than 25 years.
Reserved for German manufactured and imported campers, the contest is divided into 10 categories, ranging from compact Camper Vans to Maxi-Campers, and saw the sixth generation of Fiat Ducato take part and dominate in 8 of these: Camper Van with toilet (category B), Top-cab model up to € 50,000 (category C), Top-cab model from € 50,000 (category D), Semi-integrated up to € 50,000 (category E), Semi-integrated from € 50,000 (category F), Integrated up to € 70,000 (category G), Integrated from € 70,000 (category H) and Best Motorhome Base Vehicle 2015 (category K).
This adds another award to the list for New Ducato, the latest evolution of a best seller that for 34 years, with 5 generations, has been the best travel and work companion for more than 2.6 million customers who have chosen it since 1981. Today, there are more than 500,000 families that travel in a camper on a Fiat Ducato base, enjoying their vacations with absolute peace of mind and confidence.
The new Ducato base, which has been sold starting last June together with the new dedicated services, has contributed towards consolidating the leadership of Fiat Professional in 2014 in the camper sector, both in Germany as well as in all other European countries. The trust of its customers is proof of the effectiveness of the innovative programme of Fiat Professional, with numerous versions of Fiat Ducato that are specifically designed in collaboration with the most important manufacturers in order to optimise the specific aspects of the various types of campers, together with a wide range of services dedicated to motor home owners to help make sure their travels will always be trouble free.
The exclusive services offered by Fiat Professional to its customers who own a camper includes a new web site that is fully dedicated to the world of campers with a Ducato base. Also available for tablets and smartphones, this site provides a wide range of information regarding the Ducato Base Camping Car and all of the dedicated services. Also videos and useful widgets are available to help you understand which engine is the best suited to your requirements or to find the nearest workshop. For lovers of social media, the site is always connected to its dedicated Facebook page.
The site also provides access to the reserved “myDucato” area – which has been created together with Mopar – which makes it possible for registered users to take advantage of certain services, such as the “chassis check-up” so that you can take your trip without worries. From this area you can also view your maintenance plan as well as access exclusive After Sales offers. The site is available in 9 languages and new contents and services are constantly added.
Finally, leisure aficionados can rely on “Fiat Ducato Camper Mobile”, an app that is offered free of charge in 17 European countries and in 5 languages (Italian, English, French, German and Spanish). It offers many functions such as the possibility of finding the nearest workshop, rest areas and petrol stations. Once you have parked your camper, the app also registers your exact position: therefore with the “Find your camper” function, you can find it again, following the path displayed on your smartphone. Last but not least, there is also a universal freephone number available in many languages to Fiat Ducato Camper customers, with a dedicated team offering road-side assistance as well as customer care.
