Carado C-models: the caravan series
In the new 2011 generation, the design of the front section and rear light moulding has been updated in all caravans. Based on the visuals of the motorhome concept, they give a uniform look to the Carado brand as well as providing improved functionality. The exterior of the caravans boasts a shiny new silver finish on textured plate as standard. A white smooth plate version is also optionally available. These finishes are embellished with new, elegant decals, and aluminium rims are optionally available for further visual enhancement.
In terms of the outside, the function of the exterior flaps has also been optimised so that they can be opened extrawide, thus allowing easy loading of gas bottles, for example. The entrance door has been improved with an additional highquality lock and an even sturdier handle. A fly screen door is also installed as part of the comfort package. All windows are tinted, doubleglazed and additionally equipped with a lightexcluding blind and mosquito screen as standard.
Within the overall product range, the individual models vary in camping length from 4.13 to 6.57 metres. The interior width is generally 2.18 metres and the headroom 1.95 metres. The camping body with its 34millimetre thick walls and 41millimetre thick floor provides excellent insulation. Particularly noteworthy is the electric floor heating now available as an optional extra for the living area of the caravans.
The entire model range is based on a fully galvanized lightweight chassis with an axle casing that is also galvanized. The independent suspension with shock absorbers and the automatic overrun ensure excellent roadholding. Depending on the model, the maximum payload ranges between 190 and 440 kilograms, which is unique for this vehicle category. As an optional extra, Carado will fit the new season's models with the triedandtested Winterhoff safety coupling.
For the 2011 season, Carado is offering a total of seven caravan models: the C 164 with double bed in the front and dinette in the rear, and the C 205 and C 255 models with curved seating in the rear and double bed in the front, the C 364 with horizontal bed in the front, bunk bed in the rear and dinette in the centre, the C 363 with double bed in the front, bunk bed in the rear and dinette in the centre, and the C 417 with curved seating in the front and twin beds in the rear. The Carado C 419, a caravan in the superior lowend category, has a camping length of 6.57 metres and a width of 2.32 metres, offering a queensize bed in the rear and a spacious curved seating area in the front. High functionality and extra stowage space is provided by the passthrough area at the rear, which is accessible from the outside.
The Canadian walnut decor of the furniture, flaps and side walls has proved a good choice, lending an attractive, harmonious finish to all the caravans. An indirect lighting system with new chrome lamps makes for a pleasant atmosphere in the seating areas and elsewhere. Beige elements in the flaps underline the quality of the furniture design. The furniture is high quality with overhead storage cupboard flaps featuring strong metal hinges. The entire furniture concept, including the new creamcoloured corner elements, suggests an unusually high living standard for this sector of the market. The new flaps with their chrome trim and elegant handles are of similarly high quality. The appearance of the interior is rounded off by the bamboo parquetlook floor covering. In some models, a hanging space for coats and a shoe rack are included in the entrance area, as well as an illuminated cupboard unit.
In the interior, the customer will find a visually updated and improvedquality seating arrangement. This includes a highgrade fabric with an improved sewing finish, thicker upholstery for greater seating comfort - and all in the Valencia design featured in the Carado motorhomes. Unique in this market segment are the coldfoam mattresses with highgrade slatted frames included as standard in all fixed beds, thus guaranteeing firstclass sleeping comfort.
The kitchens are impressive with a further improved, ergonomic layout and a generous work surface featuring an inset, round sink with stainless steel look and extralarge dimensions (40 centimetres in diameter). A threeburner cooker with flame failure safety device, flame protection and glass cover (depending on the model) and a 113litre refrigerator with an 11litre freezer compartment complete this optimal range of equipment.
The washrooms with interior walls in Canadian walnut decor create a quality feel and a warm atmosphere. All washrooms have windows and a Thetford WC connected directly to the 45litre water tank. A shower fitment with flexible shower head and shower curtain is optionally available.
A (230volt) warmair system helps ensure optimal heat distribution. The heat source is a Truma S 3002 heater with automatic ignition. In addition, ventilated storage cupboards and a roof vent ensure a pleasant atmosphere. All in all, Carado caravans really do have everything the customer needs: product quality «made in Germany» plus the ideal basic technical equipment, triedandtested comfort furnishings, and attractive contemporary styling and design.
