Pretty perfect: this is how vanlife works in Slovenian
Robeta is rethinking box vans. The manufactory not only relies on high quality and fine details, but also on special lightweight construction technology.
With the lightweight furniture, the Kronos saves 200 kilos in weight
Lots of storage space in the kitchen and showcase. That fits the

That’s him: The father of Zeus. And a Six-meter box van with lengthways single beds and a classic floor planwhich is intended for two people in its base. A Pop-up roof with two additional beds (6,999 euros) can be retrofitted on request, as can the all wheel drive by Dangel. What immediately catches the eye is the right one conservative look of the expansion. Although the different living worlds can be combined with one another, dark wood decor, concrete optics and brown tones are predominant here. The elegant glass showcase in the kitchen area also makes it clear who Robeta wants to address: solvent customers who appreciate a good wine. It gets really exciting when it comes to material. The basic Robeta are available with conventional timber construction. Those who want to save weight are better off opting for the Air variant (2999 euros). The Furniture made from a very stable and light material from recycled PET bottlesthat are pressed together with pressure and temperature using an adhesive specially developed by Robeta. Thanks to the scratch- and waterproof HPL veneer, the difference can only be seen on the scales in the end: According to Robeta, the Kronos is a whopping 200 kilos lighter than the basic models!

He has: Except for the powerful 160 hp engine (Fiat only), a 90 liter diesel tank and the leather-clad rear and side doors quite narrow standard equipment. This is part of the concept, because as a manufacturer Robeta goes for the individual wishes of customers a. Our test car costs almost 30,000 euros more than the basic model. But it also has automatic transmission, chassis package, plus package, reversing camera, airline rails, awning, solar system, inverter, lithium battery and two rear windows on board. This is how he drives: To be honest – we seldom had a panel van on avenues in Mecklenburg was so quiet! That says a lot about the quality of the finish. The one delivered from the factory 160 PS Ducato with the seven-speed automatic (2690 euros) is a dream and transforms the Kronos into a true everyday escape vehicle.

Conclusion: Robeta vans are not perfect – but they are pretty close! The quality is absolutely convincing, the details are (mostly) well thought out. The look is not for young customers. But neither is the price. Totally ingenious and a real selling point: the lightweight furniture made from recycled PET bottles. Verdict: 4.5 stars out of five.
