Caravan Salon Düsseldorf: Cool all-wheel drive vehicles at the fair

AUTO BILD looked around at the Caravan Salon, the largest camping fair in Europe, and discovered some exciting all-wheel drive vehicles. Whether extreme camper, van conversion or space miracle. Here are four interesting concepts.

XBull XB 5

The Sprinter made by the XBull manufactory is the first. The small series includes only 20 pieces per year. The basis is the 7.40 meter long four-wheel drive Mercedes Maxi Sprinter. In cooperation with the company Iglhaut Performance, the solid basic model has become a real off-road expert with a large rear garage. Even a small 125cc Enduro would find space here.

The XBull doesn’t just look off-road, it can do it too. This is made possible, among other things, by the Iglhaut Performance Package.

Another gadget is the automatic drawer lock, which kicks in from 7 km/h – practical! The XB 5 also looks good on the outside. At the rear there is a transport system that works similar to the popular airline rails. This means that all possible accessories can be lashed down very flexibly.

We are already dreaming of the view that one could have from the roof terrace.

You can end the day in nature with a cool beer on the roof terrace, which can be reached via a ladder on the side. Price for the XBull XB 5: from 239,000 euros.

Krug Expedition Rhino Project

The Rhino Project from the company Krug Expedition wants to find ways where others have long since given up. This expedition vehicle focuses on self-sufficiency. Solar modules and a dry separating toilet make the traveler independent of any campsite.

A giant among motorhomes. The Project Rhino focuses on self-sufficient travel.

The base vehicle Mercedes Atego comes with a 231 hp engine, all-wheel drive, front and rear differential locks and a 230-liter diesel tank. A special highlight: If you don’t have the wherewithal (326,880 euros), you can also rent the vehicle for at least 3 years.

Rocket Mountain

For the 5.97 m long Mountain, Rocket Camper relies on the MAN TGE 4×4 base vehicle with 177 hp and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The bathroom is omitted in favor of a large bed and a larger rear garage. However, there is a toilet (dry separating toilet). This is located in one of the pull-out storage boxes and, with the help of a cover, also serves as a step to the bed.

No bathroom, but more space for mountain bikes and co.

The water tap can be pulled out through the small window behind the sink, giving you the option of an outdoor shower. The survival camper starts at a base price of around 83,000 euros.

Ford Ranger with Tischer cab

German premiere for the new Ford Ranger. The Ranger is being presented in a new design for the first time at the Caravan Salon. A lot has happened, especially at the front. The shape has become much more angular and beefy. Instead of the switchable all-wheel drive system, there is now a permanent one.

With the Tischer cabin, Ford is an example of what will be possible with the new Ranger in the camping sector.

Ford is not revealing more. However, the Tischer demountable cabin presented here shows what is still possible in the camping area with the Ranger. The pick-up can be used as a vehicle in everyday life, for transport and also as a camper – maximum flexibility. The new Ford Ranger is slated to hit dealerships in 2023.
