Carthago 2018 Highliner range

Enquire 2018 Auto Trail

The 2018 Highliner range from Carthago

You have arrived at the top, and that is why the highliner on an Iveco-Daily chassis suits you so well. Its genes portray the Liner premium class. That can be easily seen in the seat position in the raised driver’s cabin module with double shell and all-round insulation as well as the extra thick walls with a total thickness of 48 mm. Highlights are the innovative dashboard in motor yacht design and the wooden-leather steering wheel that can be swivelled away to the front to allow the drivers cab seat to be turned in comfort. The distinctive and innovative exterior bus hatches give you an inkling of the unbelievable amount of storage space that they conceal. The extra-large water and battery reserves guarantee high self-sufficiency - even on longer trips.
