Carado T-models: the semi-integrated series

(lifePR) ( Bad Waldsee, )
Semiintegrated motorhomes are steadily increasing in popularity among customers. This also applies to the Carado Tmodels, which have been further upgraded for the 2011 generation in response to customers' wishes.

This model series is again based exclusively on the highquality 3.5tonne Fiat Ducato laddertype chassis (except for the Carado T 348 with flat floor, broadgauge chassis) with 2.2 multijet engine and 100 hp engine. A chassis with a 130 hp engine can also be supplied on request. The optionally available chassis package includes manual air conditioning for the driver's cab, passenger airbag, electric, heated wing mirror, cruise control and radio kit with reflector antenna and loudspeakers.

The shapely halfalcove not only lends a touch of elegance to the outside of the vehicle, but also gives the interior a special ambience thanks to an optionally available panoramic roof. Carado's semiintegrated vehicles have 34millimetre thick walls/roof and a 41millimetre thick floor, guaranteeing optimal insulation in summer and winter alike. The superstructure is enhanced by the standard white smooth plate together with appealing outside graphics and a functional and stylish rear light moulding. A functional and attractively styled roof rack with aluminium ladder is also available on request. Especially noteworthy in this model series are the large, high garages thanks to the Fiat laddertype chassis and corresponding drop frame.

This series sees the debut of two brandnew models. The Carado T 348 is an entirely new motorhome based on the Fiat Ducato with flat floor, broadgauge chassis. This layout is notable for its optionally available folddown bed which is located above the seating area and folds away to provide 1.87 metres of headroom, as well as its double bed at the rear. In addition, the seating area can be optionally equipped to convert to beds, giving this semiintegrated vehicle the capacity to sleep up to six people. The comprehensive profile of this new vehicle is completed by a functional and convenient Lshaped kitchen with opposite 113litre refrigerator (or optional 141litre version with separate freezer compartment) in the middle of the vehicle and a generous washroom with separate shower in the rear.

The other newcomer is the Carado T 449. This features a layout with a luxury queensize bed in the rear, developed in response to customer demand. To the right and left of the bed in the rear are two wardrobes. The T 449 also boasts a large kitchen with a 113litre refrigerator (or optional 141litre version with separate freezer compartment) in the middle of the vehicle and a generous washroom with separate shower opposite. This vehicle more than justifies its description as a superior lowend model in every respect.

In total, the semiintegrated range of the 2011 generation consists of seven models. The ultracompact layout of the T 134 has a raised bed across the back with a wardrobe underneath. The kitchen is on the right as seen in the direction of travel, next to the entrance, and the washroom is on the opposite side. Between the washroom and the driver's seat, opposite the entrance, there is a semidinette with two threepoint belts and a table, to which the swivelling driver and passenger seats are joined. For added practicality, there is a seat to the right of the entrance which can be optionally converted to an extra single bed.

The other models of this series offer a choice of double bed (T 135 and T 345), twin beds (T 337) or horizontal rear bed (T 344).

The T 345 is additionally available in the exclusive "Sport Gold" version with champagnecoloured side walls, highquality "Sport Gold" graphics and an exclusive leather trim for the seating areas, driver and passenger seat.

The interior design of all Carado semiintegrated vehicles is equally impressive. The Canadian walnut decor of the furniture, flaps and side walls creates a uniform and harmonious finish. Beige horizontal stripes level with the handles underline the elegant design of the furniture. The appearance of the interior is attractively completed by elegant upholstery with a choice of two microfibre leatherlook combinations and a bamboo parquetlook floor covering. Unique in the lower price segment are the highquality coldfoam mattresses included as standard in the fixed beds. To make the interior more light and airy, a panoramic roof vent with integrated blind can be installed on request. A door fly screen is included as standard.

The kitchens are designed for functionality. The large sink (40 centimetres in diameter) with singlelever mixer tap is set into the pale ceramiclook work surface. The threeburner cooker has a glass cover and centrally positioned controls. The standard 113litre refrigerator is equipped with an 11litre freezer compartment. Depending on the model (T 337, T 344), a 141litre refrigerator with 23litre freezer compartment and extractor hood can also be supplied on request.

The washrooms are notable (depending on the model) for their separate shower together with additional mirror elements and ample stowage space. In addition, a familyfriendly, adjustable shower head, shower curtain and Thetford cassette toilet with electric pump and swivel seat guarantee all the comforts of a modern bathroom.

Pleasant warmth is provided by the quiet, efficient Trumatic C-6002 heater with integrated 12litre boiler. The Truma EH heater and electric floor heating are available as an option. Here again, an insulated waste water tank can be supplied as an optional extra for fans of winter camping.
