Here we have the absolute pinnacle of motorhomes, the Carthago M-Liner 67 LRQ. Registered in late 2008, it was built on the Iveco Daily 3.0 turbo diesel chassis with a gross weight of 6,700kg and a very healthy payload of 1,300kg. The Carthago is a 4 berth motorhome with 4 travelling seats with belts.
Coming in at 8.755m long, width of 2.35m and a heigh of 3.35m, it is a very large luxury motorhome. The motorhome has a double floor height of 420mm which gives it that lovely storage, which is felt lined. The rear garage is also felt lined, big enough for a motorbike or scooter with an opening door of 1.15m wide x 1.33m high and an interior garage height of 1.36m.
Internally, starting at the rear, is a large offset double island bed above a garage. Above is an upgraded large roof light, with a wardrobe to the nearside and storage cupboards above. The optional quilted bedspread matching the upholstery is also included (£145).
Bathroom One one side is a seperate large shower unit with a sliding closing door. On the opposite side is the toilet and washbasin. There is also a toilet brush holder, twin cup holder, mirror two cupboards and shelving.
Kitchen The kitchen is fully fitted and beautifully finished with a sink with Corasan sink covers (£110), 3 hob burner, fitted oven as a £570 optional extra, grill, 175l fridge (£840) upgrade and lots of storage. There is also a glass cabinet with all the original optional Carthago glasses.
Lounge & Front Bed
The lounge is beautifully finished in cream leather as well as the front seats (£2,050). Throughout the motorhome is nice lighting everywhere including in a lot of storage cupboards. The main seating is in an L shape with two forward facing seats with belts. There is a double bench seat opposite which has a hidden TV behind that slides out. The table can be adjusted multiple ways, and can be dropped down to make a double bed with the fill in cushions.
Cab With the cab being as an A class motorhome, it gives it lots of space. It is full kitted with lots of spec. The wing mirrors are electronically adjusted and heated. Cruise control makes the journeys easier with cab air conditioning, reversing camera, satellite navigation, radio CD player, fog lights and more to make the journey more comfortable. There are also nice deep side pockets for storage whilst driving and electric sun blind for the windscreen (£575).
