Dethleffs: AWARDED vehicles!
Beginning of the year the manufacturer of leisure vehicles from Allgäu is proud to have received several awards. Many famous trade magazines such as promobil and Caravaning let their customers vote their favorite vehicles from several categories. Dethleffs recorded the success of having the “Motorhomes of the year 2016” with the Esprit Comfort in the category “Coachbuilt over 50.000 Eu-ros”. The second place in the category “A Class up to 70.000 Euros” went to the Globebus Active A Class and his counterpart the Low Profile made the 3rd place in the category “Low Profile up to 50.000 Euros”. The certificates were handed over to the company last week-end at the CMT in Stuttgart.
For the first time the magazine AUTO BILD Reisemobil asked their readers to vote the “Golden Motorhome 2015” by. 60 vehicles in five mobile classes were there for voting. The Dethleffs Advantage A Class made the 3rd place in the cate-gory of A Class models.
The title of „The perfect motorhome 2016“ went to the Globetrotter XXL A. This prize has been awarding by the VM-Media since 2015 to all those vehicles which made it to meet the almost unfulfillable demands. By making the choice there were no class differences in price, size or construction type as all of participating vehicles will be put on the same step and only the technical implementation is the factor which decides. In spite of these special regulations the Globetrotter XXL A was able to successfully beat his competitors.
In five individual rankings he could made the place as follows: Gold in the cate-gory „On-board technology”, Silver in the category “Family Requirements” (the best result, Gold, could not be awarded at all), Silver in the category “Living Comfort” and Bronze in the category “Mobility”. With this results in four of five categories the vehicle belongs to the best test candidates in 2015 and so re-ceives the award of “The perfect Motorhome 2016”. The “Perfect Motorhome” is commented by the magazine as “the one which can even meet the require-ments which are at times contradictory.”
Also out of Germany Dethleffs motorhomes of the model year 2016 are very well-accepted. In Great Britain even two models get a high commendation from National Motorhome Award 2016. Within the category of vehicles without the fixed beds the highly commended Dethleffs is the 4-travel T 6966-4 and in the category of the Upper Class/ Luxury mobile homes the Esprit I 7150-2 EB was able to convince the jury.
With the invention of the first caravan in 1931 – the so called „Wohnauto“– the inventor, Arist Dethleffs, laid the founding stone for the caravanning industry in Germany. Today the Dethleffs GmbH & Co. KG based in Isny im Allgäu is one of the largest manufacturers of leisure vehicles in Europe. With about 800 employ-ees and with one of the most modern production plants of the industry they produce more than 10.000 motorhomes and caravans every year. Therefore the company is one of the most important manufacturers of leisure vehicles world-wide.
