German RV manufacturer Knaus-Tabbert has created an RV with the best features of a compact campervan conversion mixed with a larger, separate body motorhome.
The manufacturer revealed the new motorized Tourer CUV design on its website using some computer renderings, describing the concept as “revolutionary,” according to a report.
“The new Tourer CUV unites the best of two worlds in a new class,” Knaus said on social media. “Agile in driving operation like an urban-class vehicle, when stationary, it has the space of a fully-fledged motorhome for up to four people.”
The 5.88m long, VW Transporter-based Knaus Tourer CUV is designed to be easy to drive in traffic and can maneuver around campsites, like a compact campervan, while providing the interior space and comforts of a larger motorhome for camping.
Unlike most fixed-roof motorhomes it has a van-style pop-top roof that delivers 1.9 meters of headroom throughout the living space. It also comes along with other clever design features in its modular layout, like a rear bed that partially folds away when expanding out the internal ensuite with a separate shower and toilet.
The wider side walls of the semi-integrated motorhome body, also allow more room for the fully equipped kitchen and dinette.
For bigger families, they will have the option to slide in another double bed inside the pop-top roof cavity, and a different layout that features a larger dinette, which can also convert into a double bed, a different bathroom design, and without a rear bed.
Knaus is likely to unveil a production-ready version of the Tourer CUV, along with full pricing and specification details, at the 2022 Düsseldorf Caravan Salon in August.
