Oozing pure luxury throughout, this 2015 Carthago Chic C-Line 5.8XL is a premium A-class motorhome, housing a drop down overcab bed, front lounge, fixed island bed to the rear and a large garage. Carthago have earned a reputation for being one of the highest quality brands within the industry, starting with the design and leading to the immense level of sophistication in detail. With double-floor insulation, this motorhome is designed to be taken into all climates and is the ultimate European tourer. The overall exterior appearance of the Chic is stunning, with it's streamlined body-shape, coordinating graphics scheme and stunning front bumper/lights configuration. The habitation door is found on the offside of the vehicle and is fully reinforced. Below an electrically operated step allows easy access into the motorhome, whilst a Thule Omnistor roll out awning is fitted above, and has a neat LED strip light. Designated storage lockers can be found either-side of the Carthago, whilst the rear garage offers an abundance of space, a necessity when touring for long periods of time. The nearside of the 5.8XL has a cab entrance door and a gas locker, which contains a Gaslow system, allowing you to fill up at fuel stations which offer LPG. A solar panel can be found roof-mounted and provides additional support to the leisure batteries.
The attraction continues as you move to the inside. The quality of the woodwork is second to none, whilst the luxurious upholstery scheme offers excellent levels of comfort throughout. Hidden LED lighting provides a cosy look to the Carthago, whilst plenty of natural light sources can be found too. Taking a look at the cab area you will see that twin seats are housed, both of which have the ability to rotate and add to the lounge facility just behind. The vision you get when driving is excellent, thanks to wrap around windows and coach-style wing mirrors. Equipment levels are good too, you have: ABS, power steering, cruise control, climate control, leather steering wheel, 2 x 12v sockets, cab blinds, a dash mounted reversing camera and a radio player. There are also clever storage solutions within the cab area. The base vehicle of the 5.8XL is the Fiat Ducato 3.0 180 Multijet, also fitted with the ComfortMatic Automatic gearbox, an expensive option when new. The Carthago has covered just over 18,000 miles from new.
Above the cab area is a drop down double bed. Simply fold the seats forward, and initiate the mechanism, which lowers the bed down to an easily accessible height. The quality of the mattress is of a very high standard, and assures a great night's sleep. Soft lighting and a mini Heki provide ambience to the area, whilst plush curtains enclose the area when desired.
The lounge area offers an excellent place to relax, dine and socialise. An L shaped settee is positioned on the nearside and has an additional two three-point seat-belts fitted on the forward facing section. A side sofa is found opposite and with the addition of the front seats rotated, six can easily be seated within the facility. A high quality dining table can be positioned to your preference, whilst overhead storage lockers prove to be very useful. For entertainment there is a television which elevates from behind the side sofa. This neat idea means it is hidden when not in use.
The central kitchen is well equipped with high quality appliances, assuring an easy cooking experience. Starting with the nearside you have a three burner hob, with a glass cover for protection. To the right is a stainless steel sink, which has a chrome mixer tap and surface covers to maximise preparation space when not in use. Plenty of cupboards and drawers prove very useful, whilst a drinks cabinet can also be found and contains Carthago branded wine glasses. Directly opposite you will find a full sized Dometic dual fuel fridge freezer unit, along with an oven/grill combi integrated above.
The highlight of the 5.8XL's layout is the sumptuous rear island bed, which again houses a hugely comfortable mattress to assure an excellent night's sleep. The area is extremely well thought-out, with stunning side windows and a roof-light providing natural ambience. With the pleated blinds enclosed, LED's and spot-lights prove effective and make the area very cosy. Each occupant has their own shelve along with a reading light. Storage is excellent, with overhead lockers, his and hers wardrobes, cupboards beneath the bed and a large wardrobe, found just before you enter the facility. It's very easy to see why Carthago are regarded as one of the best manufacturers in the business.
The washroom separates the kitchen area and the bedroom, and again is very well thought-out. You have the ability to fold a door across and enclose the washroom to the bedroom, making an en-suite. The washroom is split into two sections, with the separate shower unit on the nearside. On the offside you have a Thetford electric flush swivel toilet, with a wash basin to the right, completed with a chrome mixer tap and a vanity unit below. Additional storage can be found behind the mirrors above. A roof-light ventilates the area. The shower unit itself is circular shaped, has chrome fittings and it's own roof-vent.
