Top technology for the most wonderful time of the year

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 GRP 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)

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)

KNAUS CATEYE evolution - rear tail light

Three‐dimensional lighting geometry and dynamic LED indicators develop the new 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)

Practical double floor

Thanks to its double insulation layers, our double floor guarantees cosy warmth no matter how cold it is outside. Water and heating pipes are laid in such a way that they are protected against frost and damage. In addition, the handy storage compartments provide space for small utensils. (Model‐dependent)

High-quality low-frame chassis

To maximise the headroom inside our motorhomes while minimising their external height, we use genuine Fiat lowframe chassis designs. (Model‐dependent)

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. (Across all series)

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. (Across all series)

Exklusive 17" alloy wheels

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

Doors with single-handed operation

Large doors, such as that of the rear garage, must be locked at the top and bottom. This normally requires two locks that must be laboriously unlocked and locked separately. Not at KNAUS. A linkage integrated into the garage door connects both lock units, enabling convenient single‐handed operation. The complex dual seal also ensures that heavy driving rain and wind noise are not an issue. (Across all series)

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 five 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 cabin doors are equipped with a weatherproof double seal. The KOMFORT, PREMIUM und EXKLUSIV 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.

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.

Supply technology

For a motorhome to offer the same comforts you enjoy at home, a certain level of supply technology is required. On our SUN TI demonstrator vehicle, most of this technology is installed in the double floor. The advantage is that the entire installation is well insulated against frost. It is also easy to maintain via openings in the floor.

An interior that inspires

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.

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. (Across all series)

Sat-Nav with camping software

Enjoyable and stress‐free driving is an important part of a relaxing vacation. And our new Pioneer navigation system has got everything covered. 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 on‐board 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)

Magnetic door lock

The high‐quality magnetic door lock enables variable use of the door in the open bathroom possible on the one hand, and closes gently and almost silently on the other. (Model‐dependent)

Excellent EvoPore mattresses

30% lighter and with 40% less reduction in hardness than comparable cold foam mattresses. It resists the formation of depressions even if only used on one side. The 5‐zone EvoPore mattresses not only spoil you with superlative sleeping comfort, but impress with their exceptional durability. For even more exclusive sleeping comfort, the optional WaterGel topper provides up to 50 mm more thickness. (Across all series)

Dimmable ambient lighting

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

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. (Across all series)

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. (Across all series)

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. (Across all series)

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. (Across all series)

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. (Across all series)

KNAUS smartCI: Putting technology in your hands

We always like to think several steps ahead so that you don’t have to worry about the technical details, but can simply enjoy your vacation. With smartCI, the centralised control of technical units is particularly easy and user‐friendly.

Advanced technology

The KNAUS smartCI system has been in service since its début in the SUN TI 2014 and has been continuously further developed and refined. In this context, two points were particularly important to us from the outset: Firstly, the system must be easy to maintain and repair. Secondly, important functions must remain operable even if individual functions fail.
