New 2018 Carado Models Arrive at SmartRV

by SmartRV | May 14, 2018

Two models in the new 2018 Carado motorhome range have just arrived at SmartRV, offering a sleeker, more modern look in this already very popular value brand from Germany’s Erwin Hymer Group.

New to SmartRV is the Carado T447, a four-berth motorhome that has the same bed layout as the Carado T448 (two single beds in the rear that can be combined to make a king, plus drop-down double bed) but featuring a separate shower and toilet. While the T448 has a combined shower/toilet/basin area, the T447 has the toilet and basin on the opposite side of the aisle from the shower cubicle. SmartRV Sales Manager, Samantha Kidson, says this is a practical use of space for groups travelling together. “Somebody can be using the toilet or hand basin while someone else is in the shower. You wouldn’t have to wait for someone to finish showering for you to go in and use the toilet or brush your teeth, for example.”

Back in stock at SmartRV, and New Zealand’s best-selling model in the Carado range, is the T449. SmartRV will have five models available with a higher 150 horsepower. “They’re normally 130hp standard,” says Samantha, “but if you’re looking to tow something the 150hp models give you that extra bit of power to do that, as these higher horsepower motorhomes can tow up to two tonnes.”

The T447 and T449 both feature the 2018 Carado look, which is modern with a more spacious interior feel. Ambient LED lighting and large clear glass skylights illuminate a lighter wood grain finish throughout, combined with white kitchen cabinetry and a marble-look finish on the kitchen benchtop and dining table, while the upholstery is in a half leather and soft fabric finish.

SmartRV is the exclusive New Zealand distributor of Carado motorhomes, which combine reliable functionality with affordability and a high standard of German manufacture. The new 2018 Carado models are available to view at SmartRV’s sales centres in Auckland and Christchurch.
