Top technology for the most wonderful time of the year

Optimally constructed for 100% wanderlust. With our motorhomes you always arrive better, ensured by intelligent constructions, numerous innovations and practical features. The sum of all parts results in unlimited holiday happiness.

Stable Pro.Tec frame

The Pro.Tec frame is a particularly solid aluminium profile strip that connects the side wall, front wall, rear wall and roof to one another. It enhances the stability of the bodywork and therefore also the longevity of the entire vehicle. A particular highlight: The Pro.Tec frame incorporates a chamber for the sealant. This means that it can no longer bulge out, ensuring a seamless appearance. (Model‐dependent)

Innovative FoldXpand rear construction

Thanks to a unique folding lamella construction and a completely new type of taillight carrier, the rear of the VAN TI forms a completely flat surface that has a particularly automotive effect and maximises the living space inwards without having to increase the external dimensions of the vehicle. (Model‐dependent)

KNAUS CATEYE evolution rear tail light

Three‐dimensional lighting geometry and dynamic LED indicators develop the CATEYE evolution rear tail lights further enhance the design of the unique KNAUS night signature as well as increasing driving safety. (Model‐dependent)

Excellent GRP underfloor

To ensure optimum protection of the underfloor against weathering, stone impacts etc., we fit a thick, resilient GRP layer. (Model‐dependent)

Long‐lasting TVT bodywork

Functional sandwich construction consisting of aluminium and insulating materials (XPS or EPS) with reinforcements made of polyurethane plastic and a completely bonded bodywork structure makes the entire vehicle more stable, more resistant to decay and more durable. (Optional)

Robust high‐strength GFK roof

Not all GRP is the same. Its resilience depends on its glass content. To maximise protection against hail, we therefore opted for the high‐strength variant, whose glass content is almost three times higher than standard GRP. (Across all series)

Leak‐proofness guarantee

For all our leisure vehicles, we offer you a 10‐year leak‐proofness 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. (Across all series)

Perfectly built from scratch

A strong foundation forms the basis for every home. It’s the same with our vehicles. That’s why we build on the right chassis from Fiat and MAN. We always keep in mind what is important in the individual series, who they are made for and how we can get the best out of them for being on the road and arriving.

Sophisticated exterior design

When designing the exterior, we always make sure to harmoniously integrate the design language of the base vehicle into our KNAUS moulded parts. This can be seen, for example, in the hood and the fender with invisible screw connections. Striking front design and a concise radiator grille make a strong statement. The harmonious integration of the driver’s cabin combination with the aerodynamically shaped hood ensures a dynamic silhouette.

Automotive interior

A clearly structured cockpit is essential for maintaining an overview while driving. That’s why all the important elements are arranged here so that they can be reached quickly and conveniently. Practical storage compartments and intuitive operating concepts make the cab a perfectly equipped driver’s workplace. On MAN TGE vehicles the standard multifunction display „Plus“ provides an optimum overview. The monochrome TFT display shows current information such as the outside temperature, remaining range and average consumption. In addition, the driver assistance systems can be conveniently operated via this display. If the worst comes to the worst, standard driver and passenger airbags provide protection.

Excellent driving comfort

Optimised tracking, reduced rolling movements and optimised handling in bends: this is what the 2‐channel air suspension on the rear axle ensures. This not only increases driving comfort, but also safety. For long journeys, the automatic transmission is recommended – a real comfort plus, as is the electronic parking brake. The electromechanical power steering 1 provides a clear plus in driving pleasure as well as convenient parking and unparking. The steering is automatically adjusted to the speed. For maximum driving safety, all vehicles have ABS, ESP & Hill Holder as standard.

Intelligent assistance systems

Drowsiness detection, traffic sign recognition,electronic immobiliser,… The list of modern driver assistance systems is long. Many of them are already standard equipment on our vehicles, such as the emergency brake assistant on MAN TGE vehicles. With further optional systems, you can tailor your KNAUS precisely to your needs.

Maximum driving comfort & safety

The high‐quality 2‐channel air suspension is standard equipment in all KNA US motorhomes on MAN TGE base.

A well thought-out concept for your holiday enjoyment

An excellent motorhome is the symbiosis of innumerable practical and high‐quality details. These include additional transport options and superb technology.

Optimum gas supply

Thanks to our special gas bottle pull‐out system, you will find it especially easy to check and replace gas bottles. The system can take two 11 kg gas bottles and simplifies their loading and replacement. TRUMA gas pressure regulators are easy to reset and have an optimised, clear status display. The new gas pressure regulators from TRUMA 3 are easier to reset and have an optimised and clear status indicator. Combined with the very easy‐to‐swap gas filter insert, the entire gas system and all gas‐operated devices are effectively protected. Residues are collected in a replaceable filter pad, eliminating the need to change the filter cartridge.

Thule bicycle rack

To safely attach your bicycles to the rear of your motorhome, you need look no further than the Thule Lift V16. The rack’s lift function allows it to be lowered by up to 70 cm for especially user‐friendly loading and unloading. An integrated safety frame ensures that the wheels do not slip during travel. The more adjustable wheel holders can be easily adapted to different wheel sizes – from mountain bikes to children’s bikes.

Central ServiceBox & water filter

All of your supply technology in one central location. The flap integrated into the side wall gives you very quick and easy access to all important elements.

Velocate GPS Tracker

Velocate’s innovative GPS tracking system works with intuitive app control and silent alarm mode. In the event of theft, Velocate can help retrieve the vehicle. The strong self‐sufficient running time of up to 3 months without power leaves nothing to be desired. The GPS tracker can be extended with Bluetooth sensors. With gas bottle, temperature and motion sensors, you can make your vehicle smart. If you wish, you can be informed about changes in the condition of your vehicle.

A sure thing: Our high‐quality bodywork details

What is one of the most important points during the construction of a motorhome? Clearly, its longevity. And to ensure that you can rely one hundred percent on your vehicle, we equip every motorhome with high‐quality materials such as our optimum insulating GRP roof scoops.

GRP roof scoop

With optional large panoramic roof, striking design, structurally integrated insulation and, naturally, maximum protection against hail.

No visible screw fittings

Whether its fenders, side skirts or tail light mouldings. Wherever it is possible and practical in structural terms, we work to achieve a clean, elegant look with plug‐in connections that hold attachments securely.

Exclusive 17“ alloy wheels

triking design and genuine KNAUS DNA. That’s what can be found with the alloy wheels, which are available in the black gloss front polished or titanium metallic paint variants, depending on the range. (Model‐dependent / Optional)

Wheel arch with EPP insulation

Optimum noise comfort when driving, perfect insulation when stationary. EPP is a high‐tech material without compromises: light, impact‐absorbing, heat insulating and stable. (Across all series)

Simply & securely closed

Multipoint locking but with the convenience of single‐handed operation. We aim to provide maximum convenience in the form of doors that can be operated using one hand. The double seal also ensures that heavy driving rain and wind noises do not dampen your holiday experience. Our garage doors and service doors come with convenient central locking so that you don’t have to individually lock and unlock every single one. Everything is secured at the press of a button. The optional alarm system provides even more protection. (Across all series / Model‐dependent / Optional)

High‐quality films

Timeless design is of little use if the vehicle starts to look old after just a few years. That is why we insist on high‐quality films from reputable suppliers such as 3M, Avery and Oracal. (Across all series)

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

With our different motorhome body doors, you have all the options. In order to safely keep out unwanted driving rain and other inclement weather conditions, all KNAUS body doors are equipped with a weatherproof double seal. The variants are additionally equipped with a particularly quiet, automotive locking system, which is also available in an extra wide version depending on the floor plan.

The multifunctional KNAUS storage bag is perfect for all of your essential purchases.

For a motorhome to offer the same comforts you enjoy at home

a certain level of supply technology is required. This is arranged in our example vehicle VAN TI as well as in all other KNAUS motorhomes in such a way that you can always rely on an optimal weight distribution with the correct travel load. And of course we also make sure that the connections to the individual elements are particularly easy to reach.

Perfectly organized

Thanks to the central positioning of the entire vehicle electrical system, as here in the VAN TI in the rear garage, all important elements are easily accessible and clearly arranged. This saves time in case of maintenance.

AGM surface‐mounted batteries

AGM surface‐mounted batteries are a further development of the gel battery, can also cope with somewhat higher currents and score with a short absorption time.

  • Proven AGM battery technology with an economic cost‐benefit ratio from the first ampere‐hour (Ah) onwards
  • Cycle‐resistant and maintenance‐free, cold‐resistant
  • Easy & uncomplicated replacement
  • Ideal for weekend and annual holiday campers as well as globetrotters who only use consumers (hairdryer, TV) temporarily

Lithium-Ionen-Batterie

The new lithium‐ion batteries convince with high capacity and fast, uncomplicated charging characteristics.

  • Weight saving of up to 50% compared to AGM surface‐mounted battery
  • Faster current consumption and use of the full nominal capacity without a drop in performance, independent of the current intensity
  • Longer service life, significantly better quick‐charging behaviour
  • Ideal for travellers who are often self‐sufficient and/or have a higher demand in power

Connecting, filling, draining: Our service box can do it all

Here a power supply socket, there a drain tap and the fresh water tank is somewhere else entirely – this is how the supply technology is arranged in many motorhomes, but not in ours. Every KNAUS motorhome is equipped with the practical service box, which gathers all key functions and connections centrally at a single location. For maximum ease of use.

Practical ServiceBox

1. Fresh water tank filling

2. Fresh & grey water tank cleaning opening

3. Fresh & grey water drain taps

4. Cable bushing: To ensure that the cable can be laid neatly, there is a rodent‐proof cable bushing from below into the service box.

5. Tank heating: The operation of the water tank’s warm air supply shutter is possible using one hand.

6. Power supply socket

7. Frost detector: At particularly cold temperatures, the frost detector is activated and drains water from the water pipes and from the boiler to prevent frost damage.

8. bluuwater water filter: The optional bluuwater water filter system ensures hygienic fresh water in all our motorhomes. The filter can be replaced easily and without tools thanks to the click plug connection.

bluuwater water filter

Hygienically perfect water at every destination. The new bluuwater water filter removes germs, bacteria and ultrafine particles almost completely (99.999 %) from the pipe system of all Knaus Tabbert vehicles (in series). The replaceable filter cartridge with highly efficient ultrafiltration membrane is mounted vertically or horizontally between the water tank and the pipe system. It has a filter capacity of up to 8,000 litres – and, thanks to a Timestrip indicator in the vehicle the remaining usage time can be checked at any time. The bluuwater cartridge needs to be replaced after six months at the latest, depending on use. Thanks to the click‐and‐ready quick coupling system, it can be replaced easily and drip‐proof.

  • Highly efficient ultrafiltration membrane removes ultrafine particles, germs & bacteria up to 99.999 % from the supply system
  • Filter capacity: 8,000 l
  • Easy replacement thanks to click‐and‐ready quick coupling system

An interior you’ll want to write home about: our motorhomes offer impressive levels of comfort and convenience.

Reducing an apartment with a bathroom, bedrooms, living area and a kitchen down to roadworthy compact dimensions is one thing. However, it is intelligent details and solutions such as dimmable ambient lighting that turn a living space into your favourite place.

First aid MediKit

Heartburn, headaches, allergies: Things you hardly ever need – especially when you are travelling. To ensure that you are well prepared for the worst case scenario, every KNAUS vehicle is accompanied by a MediKit voucher with which you can conveniently redeem the practical first‐aid kit with our shipping partner online.

High material quality

Exceptional material quality forms the basis for maximising longevity. With this in mind, we fit solid cast‐iron pan supports, scratch‐resistant stainless steel sinks, highquality metal handles, for example, and lots more besides.

Head-up Display & Navigation system

The head‐up display projects all important data such as navigation and speed as well as traffic sign recognition into the driver’s field of vision via a transparent screen. This means you don’t have to take your eyes off the road unnecessarily and can concentrate better on what’s happening on the road. To make your journey even more stress‐free and entertaining at the same time, the new Pioneer navigation system offers everything you need for short and long journeys with a higher contrast 9" multi‐touch display, improved viewing angle and 24bit colour depth. Compatible with Wireless Apple Carplay & Wireless Android Auto, including promobil pitch radar and connection to the head‐up display for navigation display. For vehicles on MAN TGE you can optionally get the MAN Media VAN Business navigation system incl. touchscreen with proximity sensor technology. Both systems have Bluetooth and other numerous multimedia features.

Dimmable ambient lightning

Overhead cupboards, storage compartments, countertop, overhead cupboards, and canopy – wherever atmospheric lighting makes your holiday more special, we install carefully integrated, dimmable ambient lighting.

Our focus is not on style for its own sake, but on building furniture that also creates a good indoor climate

The furnishings in our motorhomes must meet extremely strict requirements. This takes more than just an attractive design and plenty of storage space. Durability, rugged construction and technologies that inspire for an entire lifetime – these are our benchmarks.

Solid aluminium profiles

The furniture makes an important contribution to the stability of the entire bodywork. For this reason, we use high‐strength aluminium profiles in our furnishings. As well as being even more robust than solid wood profiles, they are noticeably lighter.

High-quality soft-close doors

No banging, no rattling, no need to push shut. Thanks to high‐quality hinges, the soft‐close doors shut gently and lock completely automatically.

Sturdy dowel technology

Our furnishings are joined as standard using complex dowel technology. As a result, we achieve a very high accuracy of fit and much more stable cabinetry that you can enjoy for many years to come.

Scratch-resistant HPL surfaces

High‐Pressure Laminate is a laminate material that is used specifically for the high levels of stress encountered, for example, in kitchens. The multi‐layered structure is produced under very high pressure and sealed with a particularly resilient top layer. This makes our countertops and tabletops particularly scratch‐resistant.

Stable soft-close full-extension drawer slides

For our drawer slides, we work with the quality supplier GRASS, which normally supplies to furniture manufacturing brands. And you’ll notice this too. Thanks to full‐extension drawer slides, the drawers extend so far out that they are easy to fill or empty all the way to the back. They are guided precisely and shut gently – for the lifetime of the vehicle and probably beyond.

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.

Exzellente EvoPore HRC Matratzen

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 (1a) 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)

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)

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. (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)

Lifting beds

With our lifting beds, the ladder provides easy access & the fall out protection ensures optimum safety.

Sheets

Our precisely fitting, optionally available sheets optimise the lying comfort.
