Why does the Carthago chic e-line range impress on so many levels?

When discussing the “jewel in the crown” of Carthago A-class models, it’s difficult to single out just one of the range’s many strengths. The luxurious chic e-line range is famous for their self-sufficiency, stylish interior designs, room concept, payloads, fresh and waste water capacity to name just a few.

What’s more you have endless possibilities with a choice of layouts on both Fiat Ducato and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, plus two “worlds of style”, numerous “worlds of living” and a variety of interior layouts to choose from with a permissible gross weight of 4.5 to 5.5 tonnes. Chic e-line XL models have a double axle for even more space and comfort.

Comfortably in a league of their own.

Inside the “emotionale” furniture design is both stylish and practical. A large round seating area with table and wide seat bench offers plenty of space to relax and entertain. The comfort corner (all but XL models) kitchen with pull-out work surface and worktop extension has plenty of storage space. There’s even room for a capsule coffee machine as well as the usual cooking and fridge freezer appliances. The “comfort luxury” bathroom (all but XL models) features a washbasin with storage cupboard below, a swivel out toilet and separate shower cubicle. The washroom is also completely separable from the main living area and bedroom to create a very useful changing room. Lots of storage space can be found below the large heated double floor with a useable height of up to 70 cm. This can be reached from both inside and outside the cabin while the two-room interior concept offers a living area height of 211 cm. Fitted with Alde warm water central heating, a 235-litre fresh water and 185-litre waste water tank, the chic e-line model range is a self-sufficiency champion, designed to offer unrivalled liveability whether you’re going off grid or staying onsite at a luxury campsite.

There’s a choice of lengthways single beds with adjustable head sections (LE models) or Queen-size bed (QB models) in 200 cm king-sized format with self-supporting head sections. There’s also the option of a drop-down bed over the cab which measures 1.93m by 1.53m. A full 90cm of headroom adds to the feeling of spaciousness. The large rear garage below the fixed bed can also be ordered with Carthago’s unique “pedelec” bike storage system.

The stylish exterior can be made even more exclusive with the optional “silverline” exterior colour concept, whereby the driver’s cabin and habitation area are finished in high gloss metallic in silver.

Carthago chic e-line XL models have a round seating area with long, pull-out side sofa (XL comfort corner kitchen), and XL bathroom with separate toilet room, open washing area, spacious round shower and completely separable changing room.

Built to last using aircraft technology.

Carthago motorhomes are built with technology borrowed from the aircraft industry. Using lightweight materials and advanced production techniques Carthago bodies have strong and durable connections. Where other manufacturers use screw connections, Carthago applies high-tech. As well as a high degree of stability, a main body reinforced with frame members and special bonding techniques to remain free from squeaks and rattles this also provides a clear advantage with regard to safety.

The frame member for connecting the floor and the side walls also acts as side collision protection. This aircraft type construction ensures the main cabin is not only highly stable, but also light and torsionally rigid.

The Carthago chic e-line, a sound investment.

Exclusivity is guaranteed when you choose a Carthago chic e-line because of limited production numbers, unique styling and numerous personalisation possibilities. Add unrivalled build quality and it’s no wonder they hold their value so well. You won’t be surprised to learn that chic e-line models are still in demand when more than 10 years old. Buying a chic e-line is like making an investment and one that will bring enjoyment for many years.
