Ford Transit Camper Vans – CaraBus & CaraTour from WEINSBERG
The WEINSBERG CaraBus and CaraTour camper vans are true success stories. And the new season brings a breath of fresh air, helping to make the two models even more of a success: CaraBus and CaraTour are now also available on a Ford Transit chassis. This combination is the perfect marriage – even more headroom (205 cm), plenty of generous storage space, a huge transverse bed and unbeatable value for money.
CaraBus and CaraTour – each available as 550 MQ and 600 MQ – are available in three fresh exterior colours, which blend in perfectly with the distinctive WEINSBERG design. Inside, the camper vans feature a light wood (CaraBus) and modern CPL aluminium finish (CaraTour). The transverse bed at the rear can be easily reached via a step. Thanks to specially developed side panels, the bed is a remarkable 193 cm in length. On request, the length of the bed can even be extended to 203 cm with the help of a lateral extension in the sleeping area. Thanks to the indirectly heated shower tray and large, ergonomic washbasin, the spacious bathroom also feels luxurious.
Open lines of sight create a tremendous feeling of spaciousness, which is also helped by the unique design of the kitchen: the energy‐efficient compressor refrigerator with freezer compartment is positioned out of sight in the entrance area, so it can be easily accessed from both inside and outside. Amateur cooks are also sure to love the new combined hob and sink unit from Dometic, which includes a two‐burner hob with electric ignition and a split glass cover. Ample storage space can be found next to the hob and in the recesses in the kitchen splashback. There is also plenty of room in the spacious and beautifully crafted overhead storage cabinets, as well as in the garage. Although the Ford chassis is streamlined and highly manoeuvrable, the garage area offers plenty of storage space – compared to the CaraBus and CaraTour on a Fiat chassis, it’s even taller and wider. Thanks to the improved insulation to prevent thermal bridging, the interior is always a pleasant temperature. WEINSBERG camper vans are also perfect for winter camping trips thanks to the standard diesel heating system.
Other highlights in the new Ford camper vans include the innovative insect screen door, the fully‐covered toilet shaft that is typical of WEINSBERG, the height‐adjustable TV, as well as a modern, open wardrobe at the rear.
CaraBus and CaraTour on a Ford Transit chassis with front‐wheel drive and 3.5 t gross vehicle weight – with ample leeway for the payload – are available with a 130 hp engine and 6‐speed manual transmission. A 155 hp (Heavy Duty) or 170 hp engine and a 6‐speed automatic transmission can also be selected as options. The vehicle is 280 cm in height and either 553 cm or 598 cm in length depending on the layout.
The new base vehicle also comes with intelligent assistance systems, such as ESP, ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), emergency braking assistance including emergency stop signal and traction control (TCS) as standard. If desired, numerous other systems are also available, such as drowsiness detection, cruise control or lane assist systems. The wing mirrors with integrated indicators are electrically adjustable and heated as standard. The standard halogen headlights with daytime running lights ensure perfectly visibility. The Ford Easy‐Fuel capless system, which prevents you from putting the wrong fuel into the vehicle, the rear bumper with a wide step tread, as well as sturdy lashing eyelets recessed flush into the 50‐mm thick base plate, also come as standard. The innovative WEINSBERG pop‐up roof, which has been specially developed for the Ford vehicles for the new model year, can be ordered as an optional extra. The pop‐up roof is white as standard, but is also available in the same colour as the vehicle on request.
