Extremely stable and super light: The Carthago c-compactline Super-Lightweight and c-tourer Lightweight vehicles are the lightest models in their class. The consistent lightweight construction technology has many advantages, from which you will benefit during every holiday trip. By the way: for the first time, Carthago has succeeded in developing a premium motorhome in the 3.5 t weight class in a practicable way, and it has been the benchmark in the premium class ever since.
"Everyone is talking about lightweight construction. We just get on with it."
Lightweight construction is not necessarily lightweight, since anyone can leave things out. Intelligent lightweight construction without having to forego comfort and quality is the true standard – the Carthago standard. Innovative thinking, an eye for detail, clever solutions and the processing thereof for a high degree of practical benefit: the perfect combination of high-tech lightweight construction materials, intelligent processing and pioneering spirit. These are the ingredients for our unique overall vehicle concept, and are deeply rooted in our Carthago Premium DNA.
This premium DNA is our value promise to you, and summarises that which makes every Carthago motorhome something special.
Minimum weight and maximum quality – unique in the premium class: the Carthago lightweight construction technology. More payload, lower fuel consumption and fewer restrictions in road traffic. And extremely stable and durable nevertheless, super-light with maximum comfort and a comprehensive range of equipment.
Take it with you or leave it at home? Every owner asks himself this question when loading his motorhome. Because every kilo of vehicle weight determines how much comfort and fun you have on holiday. Especially in the 3.5-tonne weight class: a luxury motorhome with a lower curb weight brings decisive advantages!
- Outstanding agility and lighter weight due to short vehicle lengths
- More payload also in the 3.5 t weight class
- Lower fuel consumption
- Fewer restrictions because of road traffic regulations
- Fewer toll charges
Less weight means more reserves for your holiday luggage: 100 kilos less weight corresponds to a 100 litre fresh water tank, an additional passenger with luggage, a motorised scooter or four off-the-shelf Pedelecs. Wine enthusiasts will certainly appreciate the weight reduction when they return from their holiday with about 100 bottles of their favourite wine.
Road Traffic Regulations
Who is allowed to drive what? Since the introduction of a class B driving licence on 1st January 1997, owners are only allowed to drive a vehicle of up to a maximum permissible total weight of 3,500 kilos. You also benefit as far as the road traffic regulations are concerned with our lightweights.
Save time and effort
Motorhomes with a permissible gross weight of less than 3.5 tonnes pay lower toll fees in many countries. You also save a significant amount of fuel with a lighter vehicle, which is not only an advantage for your wallet, but also the environment. 100 kilos less reduces SAVE TIME AND EFFORT average fuel consumption by about 0.3 litres per 100 kilometres. With mileage of 20,000 kilometres per year, you will save approximately a full tank of petrol. At the same time, there will be about 160 litres less CO² in the environmen
