Carthago 2018 Chic E-Line Range

Enquire 2018 Auto Trail

The 2018 Highliner range from Carthago

Travel with a world champion in the third generation with its exclusive front and rear design, Carthago v-face! The chic e-line is the self-sufficiency champion since its electricity, water and storage space capacities are unique in this class. With its outstanding year-round suitability and its air conditioning heating technology, it appeals to all those in search of independence. With regard to living comfort, it sets standards with its space concept with a whole 211 cm standing height in the living area and the particularly cosy front round seating group for up to six people. The large bus hatches with parallelogram technology allow the extra convenient loading of the “jumbo space” double floor storage space underneath it.

chic e-line linerclass - The world champion in self-sufficiency with Liner genes and double axle With the “liner class” version, the chic e-line delivers proof that there is even room for improvement for a world champion. As its name already mentions, due to the high additional load capacities with a permitted gross vehicle weight of 5.4 tonnes alone, it has already borrowed features from the Liner league. As it can be recognised from the outside by the AL-KO double axle chassis, you are travelling just as safely as if you were on rails and you can use the capacity of the large scooter garage without concern. This allows you to enjoy even more freedom and independence.
