Carthago chic c-line I 4.9 LE: Motorhome test

Furniture architecture, wellness oasis, the kitchen in high-gloss ivory. If you read the descriptions in the Carthago catalog, you would think that this is about a house and less about a mobile home. Although, for many campers, a Carthago liner is just that: a Luxury vacation home on wheelswith which a long-cherished dream comes true. And as in a property, renovation work is inevitable. That is why Carthago is now introducing the pimped up and for the new season modernized “New Generation” of the chic c-line.

The feeling of space is phenomenal

That’s him: In the Aulendorfer’s premium class, our test car, the 4.9 I LE, with a length of 7.39 meters and a gross vehicle weight rating of 4.25 tonnes, is even one of the shorter versions of the series. The test vehicle still drove on the Series 7 Ducato, but already had the current structure. According to Carthago, the chic c-line will go into series production on the new Fiat Ducato with the Euro 6d final engines delivered. In addition, the compact liner shines above all with a phenomenal feeling of space.

Nevertheless, the design is still clearly aimed at an older target group.

The 160 hp diesel is a sensible investment
