Exclusive insights

New technology – unique on the market

There are many conventional pop‐up roofs for box vans. The unique solution from KNAUS, however, sets new standards for this segment. While other manufacturers design immature solutions, KNAUS has taken the time to develop an innovative pop‐up roof and implemented a completely new technology. KNAUS is the first in the leisure industry to manufacture the roof completely using the latest LFI technology. Compared to a conventional GRP construction, LFI offers optimum insulation values, maximum stability and extremely precise weight specifications as the entire roof is manufactured as one complete part.

Comfort zone on 2 floors

In addition, the KNAUS CUV pop‐up roof convinces with a larger interior surface and numerous well thought‐out features for increased living and sleeping comfort on two floors with the most modern features such as USB sockets and inductive charging tray. Thanks to the convertible function with mosquito net and blackout, the pop‐up roof offers the best protection against insects and privacy. Standard warm air outlets and two roof windows as well as the option of installing a roof‐mounted air conditioning unit in the rear area ensure an optimum room climate.
