AIC 2021 – the 10th All in CARAVANING came to a successful conclusion at Beijing Etrong International Exhibition & Convention Center on June 20th. “We are so delighted to once again present a high-quality trade show to the industry. During the three-day event, we welcomed a new record of 25,448 visitors. This fact not only underlines the importance of AIC for the Chinese RV industry but also shows that face to face meetings are demanded than ever before.” Mr. Marius Berlemann, General Manager of Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. concluded.

On the business side, the show produced remarkable results. Exhibitors and visitors were highly satisfied with the outcome, which exceeded expectations in many respects. New exhibition zones as well as exciting concurrent events received positive response. The lively atmosphere at AIC shows that caravanning is becoming increasingly popular in China. People’s desire for travelling and exploration of the world makes this traveling style charming and meaningful.

La strada announces the new Nova product range for the year 2020. First computer animations give an impression of the new flagship of the German Motorhome manufacturer. Two layouts with a length of 6,46 and 6,99 m will be available in the first half of 2020. Such as its predecessor, the new Nova will be made of a GRP monocoque cabin mounted on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis with rear- or four-wheel-drive. The sophisticated construction of the extremely long lasting glass-fibre reinforced plastic monocoque cabin ensures a high-end isolation, reliable leak tightness and an elegant design.

“Granted, the realization of the new Nova took longer than we wished it would. But now we are on the verge of accomplishing our new flagship. The new la strada Nova still follows the proven concept of the GRP monocoque cabin. Apart from that we have developed a completely new vehicle in which many suggestions from our customers and business partners have been incorporated,” says Marco Lange, Managing Director and owner of la strada Fahrzeugbau GmbH. “We are convinced that we will pursue the success of our top product range with the new Nova. The new Nova fulfils our highest requirements of quality, comfort and equipment of a compact motorhome.”

The superstructure of the Nova showcases a one cast cabin without locking ledges, handles or hinges on the exterior traps. The entrance door of the GRP build-up is significantly wider than before. The slightly darkened windows fit perfectly aligned within the appearance of the motorhome. A large rear window brings light and air in the interior and adhere seamlessly to the harmonious lines of the GRP monocoque cabin.

The new Nova M features the well-known floorplan of his predecessor with three sleeping places: a length side mounted tow-away bed above the seating group and a second single bed crosswise in the rear above the garage. With 6,46m the new Nova M is ten centimetres longer than he was before. This leaves more room for the living space. With a wheelbase of 3,66m the motorhome remains easy to manoeuvre. Serially, the Nova M will be built with a total mass of 4,1t and a very generous payload of 920 kilograms. For only two passengers, the vehicle will as well be available downloaded to 3,5t with a remaining payload of 320 kilograms.

The completely new Nova EB features single beds in the rear and storage compartments above the seating group in the front. This 6,99m long “giant” built on the 4,33m wheelbase Mercedes Benz Sprinter is still a compact vehicle within the high-end luxury segment. With a permissible total weight of 4,1t, 710 kg payload do offer various loading possibilities to a two passenger layout. 

Both Nova models feature four 3-point safety belt seatings as well as one Isofix fastening seating place with top tether for a child’s seat. Furthermore, the standard equipment includes SKA comfort seats with pneumatic lumbar support and heating system in the cabin as well as an incorporated awning on the left side above the entrance door. A stronger engine, four-wheel-drive, ten different paintings, ten wood colours, thirteen wooden decors for the trap doors, 115 different leather, leather/ fabric combinations and fabric varieties as well as an extensive option list, leave nothing to be desired in order to configure the new la strada star.

The new la strada Nova EB with standard 120 kW (163 HP) engine will be available from 97.430 Euro on, the more compact la strada Nova M from 95.430 Euro on (German Retail Price).

The new Dometic Campervan Concept features a noble dark gray design that blends nicely with the original campervan designs. The collection includes an air-conditioner, rear-view camera, awning, window and rain-drainer.

Dometic is now responding to campervan owners’ long-time frustrations. Owners of campervans have been struggling to find RV gears that naturally blend with their beloved second house simply because the color of the gear normally stands out when it’s mounted on a van.

What the owners have been doing is painting over added items to make them fit into the design of the van.

The Dometic Campervan Concept solves this problem elegantly with its noble dark gray; the color matches most campervans on the market nicely, not disturbing the original design of the vehicle.

The Dometic Campervan Concept offers several upgrades with a consistent design language in noble dark gray. Products included in the concept are:
