The new AirPro suspension system
with Carthago motorhomes on the Iveco Daily
CARTHAGO MOTORHOMES BASED ON THE IVECO, NOW WITH THE AIRPRO ADAPTIVE SUSPENSION SYSTEM
In a joint development with Iveco, we have also made the AirPro adaptive suspension system available for Carthago motorhomes. Experience a completely new travel sensation in conjunction with a luxury motorhome based on a standard Iveco chassis!
The Iveco AirPro System is based on full pneumatic suspension on the rear axle, combined with an adaptive, electronically controlled suspension system on all wheels (front & rear axle). The system, which has been developed by ZF, has a central control unit which adapts the characteristic curves for the shock absorbers to the driving situation within milliseconds.
This reduces vibration by about 25% and lateral tilting by more than 30% in comparison to the previous chassis systems. The driver can choose between three driving modes. AirPro increases safety and driving enjoyment considerably in combination with the special requirements of a motorhome.
As well as improving the driving characteristics, the pneumatic suspension at the rear axle can be used to raise & lower the vehicle when it is stationary in order to make loading and unloading easier, for example, or compensate for the gradient of a pitch. The positions can be saved when doing this – and retrieved for using again at a later date.
