Magellano Edition 1: Camping XXL

W├╝lfershausen, 30 January 2017

Usually, we betray not just at the beginning of the price of a vehicle. But in this case it must be: Magellano's "Edition 1" will cost 680,000 euros. Probably noticed, we are talking about a mobile home. But there is a very small target group that wants to enjoy the domestic comfort even on trips and is accordingly much money in the hand. For you Michael Ebner, founder of Magellano, a super camper builds on the basis of GigaSpace variant of the Mercedes ACTROS 1842.

Massive leisure OASIS

However a greater pitch is highly recommended, as a glance at the dimensions shows: 10.60 metres in length, just over four meters height and 2.50 meters wide require a knowledgeable driver. The unladen weight can reach 16 tons depending on the institution, so, a 421 HP of strong diesel powered is extremely useful. In addition a diesel generator for stationary operation of the camping giant. Impressed even the pure collection facilities: A 750 litre fresh water tank, two televisions, a sound system, satellite, Internet access and a 180-liter refrigerator with 70-litre freezer compartment. Its content can be processed in the kitchen on a marble countertop, making two gas burners and a combination of oven, microwave oven and Grill are available.

Accommodation for all

Larger amounts of food make sense, because in the Magellano is room for eight people, underfloor heating and air conditioning included. Two so-called "Slide-Outs" in the style of retractable bays extend living space, even more Slide-Outs or roof Windows can be installed on request. The standard version beds are 180 x 200 cm (rear), 200 x 150 cm (above the driver's cab) and 140 x 220 cm (in the area of the seating area) in the formats including. Of course, there's a shower plus wash basin and toilet.

Two-wheeled vehicles in the rear

The spacious rear garage of "Edition 1" offers space for up to two motorcycles, but not for a car. Here, Magellano recommends the use of a trailer, especially as the camper can take up to 3.5 tons on the hook. If a customer wants to still have a rear garage, she can be implemented based on a longer chassis of the ACTROS. Also ideas such as a "business mobile", where the area subsequent to the cabin is to the Office, can be realized. (rh)
