Caravan Salon: WEINSBERG with new model range in the van class
Motorhomes focus on lightweight construction and compact models; caravans with completely new product portfolio and new model range in the premium segment; cult caravan in “Wood Style”
At this year’s Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf Knaus Tabbert GmbH, a leading manufacturer of caravans and motorhomes in Europe, again presents numerous new models to international trade visitors: One focus of the trade fair appearance from 30 August to 7 September 2014 in halls 12 – stand A51, 16 – stand A06, and 5 – stand D31, lies on sporty and compact vans. With the completely new developed CaraCompact the WEINSBERG beginner brand presents a completely new model range in its product portfolio. The agile semi-integrated CaraCompact convinces both with its automotive look and with its high-quality living room concept. The 600 MEG single-bed layout is available at authorised dealers at a price starting from Euro 43,990. At the KNAUS stand the subject of lightweight construction is demonstratively presented with the Sky Traveller Superlight. A completely innovative and new body concept with numerous weight-saving detail solutions in the next season essentially reduces the weight of the popular alcove model with standard equipment, and thus makes it especially attractive for recreational vehicle rental services. In addition KNAUS also has redesigned one of its most important motorhome ranges, the Sun TI. Less weight, more beauty, reduced price – that is how the new features of the Sun TI upper middle-class motorhome can be shortly summarized. As from next model year an optimised room concept provides open lines of sight and a pleasant atmosphere of well-being. Despite the clear enhancement in the interior the Sun TI on average costs about Euro 4,000 less than its predecessor. The range of motorhome news in 2015 is completed by many new camper van layouts. Right on time for the 10th birthday of the KNAUS BoxStar five new layout solutions are presented at the trade fair. With the CaraBus 601K WEINSBERG also has a new layout in its product portfolio.
Caravans also come with numerous new features for the 2015 season. TABBERT, the group’s premium brand, presents a completely reworked product portfolio to trade visitors in Düsseldorf. The value of the four existing model ranges has been clearly enhanced both in the exterior and interior. With the Rossini TABBERT furthermore presents a completely new developed caravan that now represents a new, the fifth, model range of premium caravans. As a beginner-level model range for demanding tourism customers the TABBERT Rossini starts with a price of Euro 17,490. And the Knaus Tabbert cult caravan also gets a new look: In the new season the T@B also is available in wood style.
NEW MOTORHOME MODELS
WEINSBERG CaraCompact: New model range in the compact van class
One of the most important new models in the segment of compact motorhomes that are becoming ever more popular starts with a price of Euro 43,990. The WEINSBERG CaraCompact is the ideal beginner model for the camping holiday form. The innovative interior design of the compact van features high-quality surfaces and many functional details. The new CaraCompact also comes with a service module that is the van’s central supply station at the side wall – a unique feature in this price class. The automotive van has a body width of just 2.20 metres and a length of 6.73 metres, which makes the sporty semi-integrated motorhome ideal for narrow streets and alleyways in the towns of Europe. With the optically striking design of the showcar CaraCompact “Glut” the WEINSBERG brand furthermore impressively demonstrates that the beginner segment can very well be sporty, automotive, and cool.
KNAUS Sky Traveller Superlight: Clearly reduced weight for more holiday fun
With an innovative and completely new body concept the popular alcove model in the next season has essentially less weight with standard equipment. For example the floor in the new Sky Traveller 650 DG now is made in sandwich lightweight construction – with 47mm XPS-RTM insulation and a total thickness of 58 mm. This has a direct positive effect on driving dynamics. The same applies to the new side wall and rear wall construction: Because of the sandwich lightweight construction of poplar plywood the outer sheet metal only is 0.7 mm thick. With 30 percent lighter mattresses, a kitchen without double vertical walls and lighter handles, a weight reduction of about 175 kilograms could be realised altogether. The alcove model thus easily transports up to six people plus sufficient luggage into their holidays. With these features the KNAUS Sky Traveller 650 DG SL is the ideal model for families who wish to rent a spacious and comfortably equipped motorhome for their holidays. In 650 DG layout the new KNAUS Sky Traveller is available at a price starting from Euro 55,290.
