Optimum technology for the most beautiful time of the year

Durable TVT Structure

Functional sandwich construction made of aluminium and insulating materials (XPS or EPS) with polyurethane plastic reinforcements and fully bonded structure make the whole structure of the vehicle more stable, more resistant to decay, and more durable. This is what Top Value Technology – in short: TVT represents. (Optional)

Robust high-strenth GRP roof

Not all GRP is the same. Resistance depends on how high the glass content is. For maximum protection against hailstorms, we decided on the high‐strength variant with a fibreglass content that is almost three times greater than that of standard GRP. (Across all series)

Excellent GRP underbody

We install a thick, tough GRP layer in order to best protect the underbody against weather, impacts from stones, or similar. (Dependent on model)

Insulating double floor

Our double floor ensures cosy warmth due to double‐layer insulation even in the coldest outside temperatures. Water and heating pipes are installed such that they are protected against frost and damage. (Dependent on model)

ALKO tandem deep frame chassis

The low centre of gravity and the particularly torsionresistant chassis ensure exceptional driving and comfort features as well as maximum safety when driving. An additional benefit is that the low chassis height provides more room to stand and more loading volume even with compact dimensions. (Dependent on model)

Leak-proofness guarantee

For all our leisure vehicles, we offer you a 10‐year leakproofness guarantee on the body manufactured by us as well as a 24‐month guarantee from your KNAUS partner within the framework of our guarantee conditions valid at the time of vehicle delivery. (Baureihenübergreifend)

Exclusive to SUN I: Our especially high-quality and durable TVT+ structure

What is one of the most important aspects in designing a motorhome? That, regardless of the weather, you can have fun on holiday with it. That should also last many, many years. For this reason, we developed aluminium‐XPS aluminium structures and christened it Top Value Technology+.

Durable TVT+ structure

This is bodywork technology at a purely luxurious level: An outer shell made of highly‐resistant aluminium sheets, quality XPS insulation between them, and aluminium sheet on the inside with a textile wall covering. This doublewall structure increases the torsion resistance of the structure, and therefore ensures maximum durability. The aluminium sheet on the inside ideally collects and dissipates the heat in your SUN I, providing a uniquely pleasing atmosphere. The TVT+ structure also provides benefits regarding safety. Despite the GRP roof, the aluminium interior wall creates a Faraday cage that provides optimal protection even in heavy storms. (Dependent on model)

Excellente insulation effect

The aluminium and XPS combination is the best that can be used for the outer shell of a motorhome. It is therefore no surprise that the side wall is comparable to a typical house wall with regard to its insulating effect. Your benefit: Lower gas consumption in winter and ideal protection from heat in summer. (Dependent on model)

Textile wall covering

The textile wall covering does not just create a homely atmosphere with its pleasant and soft surface, but it also improves the acoustics and heat storage. (Dependent on model)

Optimal protection against decay

Coated aluminium and hydrophobic XPS insulation together make a side wall that is resistant to decay, and it also ensures a long vehicle life due to age‐resistant materials and high torsion resistance. (Dependent on model)

A thoroughly well-designed concept for your holiday enjoyment

An excellent motorhome is the combination of innumerable practical and high‐quality details. We have summarised a few points here for you so that you can see what exactly can be found in our integrated motorhomes.

Sewer valve camera & electr. drain valve

The SUN I 3 axles can be optionally equipped with a waste water valve camera to simplify the positioning of the vehicle over the drain. The standard electric drain valve can be conveniently operated from the cab. (Optional / Across all series)

Practical front blind

Whether a pleated blind or an insulating shutter. Whether electric or manual. Thanks to the practical front blind, curious glances, cold weather, and the glare of the sun all remain outside if required. (Optional)

Air ducts driver's cab heating

The front section of the dashboard is heated in a targeted manner in all integrated KNAUS vehicles. This does not just prevent misted windows, but the insulated porch area also works in a similar manner to an area heating system. This means that the same pleasant atmosphere in the vehicle also applies to the driver’s cab. (Across all series)

Effective vehicle insulation

Optimal comfort regarding noise when driving, ideal insulation when still. We use a special high‐tech material in areas that are particularly heavily used, such as the wheelhouse and the engine compartment: Expanded propylene. This material has exceptional noise and heat insulation properties as well as being extremely resistant against mechanical effects. (Across all series)

Practical double floor

Alongside the benefits with regard to insulation, the double floor has a practical advantage too. It also serves as a loading option for bulky objects such as skis or camping furniture, as well as several storage compartments for smaller utensils. A particular highlight: The storage space beneath the bench is easily accessible from both the inside and the outside. (Dependent on model)

Comfortable gas bottle pull-out

For a particularly easy access and even faster exchange of the gas bottles, we install a special pullout. This pullout is suitable for holding two 11‐kg gas bottles and can be easily pulled out and secured on the inside. (Dependent on model / Optional)

Quality vehicle graphics

Timeless design means nothing if the vehicle starts looking old after only a few years. For this reason we only use quality products from renowned suppliers, such as 3M, Avery, and Oracal. (Across all series)

Travel without worries, arrive safely, relax and enjoy

When furnishing our motorhomes, we place great store on a high degree of safety and maximum ease of use. From specially developed windscreen wipers to particularly safe body doors to practical single‐handed operation.

Blind spot warner

Our Blind Spot Warner helps you keep track of side and rear traffic. The system gives you the necessary all‐round view not only while driving but also when maneuvering. Pure safety! (Optional)

Highest safety

The modern internal key system 1 slides smoothly into the lock and, due to its straight surface, it does not easily get entangled in clothing. So that you don’t have to individually unlock and lock each and every flap, we optionally install a convenient central locking system 2, 3 for the flaps and doors of the vehicle body. Everything is thereby secured at the touch of a button. The optional alarm system ensures even more protection. (Across all series / Dependent on model / Optional)

Best perspectives

Our large panorama windscreens in combination with the perfectly adjustable GRAMMER seats and the large side windows grant the greatest possible view looking upwards, downwards, and to the sides. We do not install any universal solutions with regard to our windscreen wipers, but use systems that are ideally adapted to the curvature of the windscreen to provide optimal performance. And finally, our windscreen heater effectively prevents misted windows. Put in short: more active safety for you by having an ideal view and optimal visibility. (Dependent on model)

Metal locks in body door

So you can sleep soundly at night, we install solid high‐tensile steel closing elements in our body doors so that you and your loved ones can enjoy a relaxed holiday. (Dependent on model)

Doors with single-handed operation

Locked several times over, yet can still be operated with just one hand. We do not use fiddly twist‐action locks, but aim to provide maximum convenience instead. In addition, the double seal ensures that driving rain and strong winds do not have an effect on your holiday experience. (Dependent on model)

Velocate GPS tracker

If the worst comes to the worst, Velocate’s optional GPS tracking system provides you with optimal protection. The tracking system requires very little power and can transmit for up to three months independently. Thanks to app control, it is particularly easy to operate. AGPS ensures particularly fast location determination and a sensitive GPS antenna provides the best reception for tracking even in difficult environments. (Optional)

That’s how nice it is to start your holiday with KNAUS motorhomes

With our five different motorhome cabin doors, the possibilities are endless. In order to keep unwanted downpours and other forms of inclement weather outside, all KNAUS cabin doors are equipped with a weather‐resistant double seal. The variants KOMFORT, PREMIUM and EXKLUSIV are also equipped with an automotive, noiseless locking system and, depending on the layout, also available in an oversized version.

Connect, fill, release: Our ServiceBox covers everything

A power supply socket here, a drain tap there, and the fresh water tank somewhere else – supply technology may appear such in many motorhomes, but not in ours. The practical KNAUS ServiceBox is installed in every KNAUS motorhome, and it combines all important functions and connections in one central location. For maximum ease of use.

Supply technology

When your motorhome should offer the same comfort as your home, quite a lot of supply technology is required. In our SUN I example vehicle this is stored in the double floor. This has the advantage that the whole installation is particularly frost‐proof and can be easily serviced via openings in the floor.

Our filter for a clear holiday pleasure

As beautiful as the destination may be, the view into the fresh water tank can quickly spoil happyness. Unfortunately, clean water is not taken for granted everywhere. It’s all the more important that you have the possibility to supply yourself with purified water. The high‐performance filter system from our partner BWT offers the best conditions for this.

This is how easy it is to install & change the filter

We only install the filter when the vehicle is handed over so that you can use it for the full period of up to 6 months.

Installation is particularly easy thanks to the plug connection and clear markings.

The filter can be kept for up to 6 months from the day of installation. A special button shows the current status.

If no replacement filter is available, the intermediate piece guarantees the further water supply.

BWT Bestcamp water filter: The handy water filter leaves nothing to be desired in terms of hygiene thanks to its ultrafiltration membrane. Microorganisms are effectively removed from the raw water. This allows hygienically perfect water to be produced without any chemicals whatsoever. The water filter can be installed in all our leisure vehicles and easily connected.

Top‐class technology: thanks to the highly efficient hollow fibre membrane, the water filter achieves an excellent retention rate for microorganisms > 99.9999 % (log6). The large membrane surface ensures a high throughput and thanks to the manufacturing from completely food safe materials no unwanted substances get into the water.

Practical application: an 8 mm „John Guest‟ plug connection ensures particularly simple, tool‐free installation. This also ensures that the water supply is guaranteed even when no replacement filter is available.

Healthy enjoyment: the water filter system minimises the risk of germs in the water. Especially in high‐risk regions, the filter proves to be a useful tool for prevention and actively contributes to the protection of your health.

Discover KNAUS smart CI: The entire technology in your hands

With KNAUS smart CI, the central control of the technical units is particularly easy and user‐friendly. Our control panel with 4.3‐inch capacitive touch screen is the most convenient and easiest way to centrally control all functions of the vehicle. Like a smartphone, it can be controlled intuitively by touching the screen.

Startscreen overview

All important vehicle information can be seen at a glance. Touching the individual areas takes you to a more detailed range of adjustment options.

Multi-zone climate control unit

Several climate control zones can be controlled depending on the range of incorporated features. Select the desired temperature and the automatic system monitors the heating or the air‐conditioning depending on the situation.

Fill display of water tank fillings

You can see at a glance here what the fill levels of the tanks in the vehicle really are. In addition, the device provides an acoustic signal when filling the fresh water tank is needed.

Light control in the entire vehicle

Centrally controlling the main living area light, the bathroom light or simultaneously the ambient lighting in the bedroom? Not a problem at all. The control panel can be used to ensure that you have the perfect lighting throughout your KNAUS.

Detailed battery monitoring

Monitor the charge status of your batteries on board. Further information can be accessed in connection with a battery sensor (as standard with a body battery.

Practical front blind

The settings menu can be used for the optional front blind to select from predefined options and then select the desired position at the touch of a button.

An interior you want to tell everyone about: our motorhomes offer impressive levels of comfort and convenience

One challenge is to transfer an apartment with bathroom, bedroom, living area, and kitchen down into an area that is fit for the road. The other includes intelligent design solutions, such as dimmable atmospheric lighting that can turn a living area into your favourite space.

Quality materials

Quality materials are the basis of maximum durability. For this reason, we for example install solid castiron grates, scratch‐resistant stainless steel wash basins, quality metal handles, stylish acrylic glass compartments and much more. (Across all series)

Head-up display

The new head‐up display uses a transparent screen to project all key data, such as navigation and speed as well as traffic‐sign recognition information, into the driver’s field of vision. Drivers don’t have to take their eyes off the road unnecessarily and can focus better on what is going on around them. (Optional)

Navigation system with camping software

For an even more stress‐free and entertaining journey, the Pioneer navigation system offers everything you need for short and long trips. With intuitive multi‐touch control, maps of 44 countries in Europe, a DAB+ receiver, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Parrot Bluetooth hands‐free functionality and optimum sound thanks to the onboard 13‐band equalizer, it offers everything you could expect these days of a multimedia navigation system. It also comes with 3 years of free map updates. (Optional)

Comfortable driver's cabin design

There is also a spacious storage compartment 2 with well thought‐out shelves located next to the passenger seat, so that your co‐driver has everything which might be needed while driving at hand. Smartphone, tissues, sunglasses – everything is easily accessible and well stowed. And when you finally arrive and want a little privacy or sun protection, the entire cab can be shielded from the outside thanks to a practical darkening. As an option, an electric drive ensures lots of comfort. (Across all series / Dependent on model / Optional)

Magnetic catch

The quality magnetic catch means that the door can be used for various purposes in the open bath, whilst it also closes gently almost without making a noise. (Dependent on model)

We don’t build castles in the sky; instead we build furniture that creates a pleasant atmosphere

The expectations made of the furniture in our camper vans are very high. They are not just met with pleasing designs and a great deal of storage space. Durability, intelligent construction and technology that impresses for life – those are our measures.

Solid aluminium profiles

The furniture plays an important part in ensuring stability of the entire structure. That is why we use highly rigid aluminium profiles with our furniture. These are even more stable than solid timber profiles, and considerably lighter. (Across all series)

Adjustable soft-close doors

No thumping, no rattling, no reclosing. The soft‐close drawers close gently and lock automatically. (Across all series)

Solid dowelling technology

Our furniture is joined using elaborate dowelling as standard. This means we achieve great precision in fitting, as well as a considerably more stable structure so that your furniture will still serve you well even after many years. (Across all series)

Scratch-resistant HPL/CPL surfaces

High pressure laminates are laminates that are specifically used for heavy loads such as in kitchens. The multi‐layer construction is produced under extremely high pressure, then sealed with an exceptionally robust surface layer. This makes our work areas and tabletops particularly scratch‐resistant. (Across all series)

Stable soft-close full-extension slides

We work together with GRASS for our drawers, who otherwise mainly supply their goods to leading furniture manufacturers. You’ll notice the difference. Due to the fullextension slide, the drawers slide out so far that they can be filled or emptied easily right to the very back of the drawer. They are guided accurately and close quietly – for the life of the vehicle, and probably also beyond. (Across all series)

Our features for your sleeping comfort

Sweetly falling asleep and waking up relaxed. We give the highest priority to the design of the sleeping area so that you can always have a relaxed start into an eventful holiday. Our concept comprises high‐quality materials, well thought‐out details and individualisable solutions.

Excellent EvoPore mattresses

30 % lighter and 40 % less loss of hardness than comparable cold foam mattresses. No development of ’hollows’ even in one‐sided use. The 5‐zone EvoPore mattresses not only pamper you with excellent sleeping comfort, they also impress with exceptional durability. The High‐Resilience‐Climate technology ensures that the mattress remains highly elastic even under demanding climatic conditions. For even more exclusive sleeping comfort, the optional WaterGel layer is up to 50 mm thicker. The breathable foam adapts smoothly to the body. (Across all series)

Heatable EvoPore mattresses

For anyone who tends to shiver quickly, prefers winter holidays or simply likes to get into a comfortably preheated bed, comfort mattresses with an electric heating system are optionally available. Overheating is impossible thanks to the automatic reset function. (Depending on the model / Optional)

Optimum slatted frame

The best mattress is only ever as good as its base frame. That is why we install high‐quality slatted frames as standard. The distance between the individual slats offers optimum stability and superb ventilation at the same time. (Across all series)

Bed extension

Of course we want to ensure a maximum sleeping space for you. Special detail solutions also contribute to this, such as the variable foot area extension for French beds or the precisely fitting roller slatted frames and mattress liners for single beds. (Depending on the model / Optional)

Entrance height

Our designers pay attention to creating the bed entrance as easy as possible in all layout variants. For the extension of the single beds, a stowable ladder provides safe access. Optionally, some beds can also be installed in a low version 2 (including wardrobe above the foot end). (Across all series / Optional)

Storage space, sockets & lighting

Reading a bit more, charging your smartphone overnight and having your glasses ready to hand. For all of that and more, you’ll find comfortable dimmable lighting, sophisticated storage options and sockets in the sleeping area. (Depending on the model)

Textile room dividers & wall covering

Especially with several travel companions and larger families, privacy is an important factor for a restful night’s sleep. This is ensured by textile room dividers that are easy to pull out and provide pleasant privacy. Thanks to the soft‐touch wall panelling, the sleeping area becomes particularly comfortable.
