RUNNING GEAR AND CHASSIS

TRAVEL AND FEEL AS IF YOU ARE DRIVING A CAR.

We want your holiday to begin right from the first kilometre. So we have built many technical β€˜clous’ into the Smove which provide unprecedented dynamic handling. Not an everyday thing for a motorhome, of course, but it is for us.

TORSIONAL RIGIDITY.

The Smove has up to 30 % higher torsional rigidity compared to conventional construction frames. Firstly, this is thanks to its extra-stable underfloor, a 42-mm-thick double-layered aluminium sandwich base plate that is bolted and glued to the AL-KO low frame. Secondly, specially reinforced B-pillars provide a solid connection between body and cab. These 'clous' can be clearly felt in its excellent handling characteristics and pleasant running smoothness.

WATER TANKS.

We have placed the water tanks at the lowest point in the double floor, where they help to further improve the driving dynamics of the Smove.

AL-KO LOW FRAME.

The standard basis for the construction of the Smove is an AL-KO low frame. It has a lightweight construction and ensures ideal weight distribution.

18" ALL OY WHEELS.

The optional 18" alloy wheels including wheel spacer give the Smove an even more dynamic appearance. They also absorb vibrations and bumps much better, giving you a noticeably smoother ride.


aerodynamics

LOW AIR RESISTANCE.

The reduced frontal car silhouette and an increasingly widening B-pillar give the wind less to get hold of.

SUPERSTRUCTURES IN THE SLI PSTREAM.

All roof structures such as windows and satellite antenna are located in the slipstream, which also reduces wind noise.

REAR SPOILER.

Spoiler and spoiler edges reduce the braking vortex at the rear of the Smove.


Insulation & coating

DOUBLE-LAYERE D ALUMINIUM. A GOOD IDEA THAT WE HAVE IMPROVED.

Winter holidays – sometimes you get caught cold by the weather, or caught in a sweat. We have made sure the temperature always feels just right on your holiday – at least in your Smove. We have been making wall panels from double-layered aluminium for more than 30 years and have been regularly improving the material ever since.

The structure is simple: aluminium on the outside,styrofoam on the inside. In this composition, the panels are virtually non-conductive – heat and cold have to stay outside, and to ensure all-round insulation, we don’t just use this material in the rear and side panels, but also in the double floor and in the garage doors. Even with all this insulation, of course we’ll keep our fingers crossed for good weather for you.


Heating & ventilation concept

A BIG STEP FOR WARM FEET.

The Smove always keeps you well prepared even on those cold days on holidays or on your winter break. Whether you choose the standard Truma air heating or the optional Alde hot water heating – with our well-thought-out, holistic heating concept, you can enjoy a cosy warm holiday in your Smove even when temperatures are freezing outside.

Holistic means that all three components – effective heating system, an avoidiance of cold spots and our sophisticated air circulation – give you very straightforward benefits: like warm feet, for example.

DOUBLE FLOOR.

Hot air outlets or convectors in the double floor protect all fixtures and fittings from the cold. At the same time, the double floor functions as a heat store and transfers the heat to the interior floor, similar to domestic floor heating. Floor heating is also available in combination with the optional hot water heating system.

HEATING CENTRE.

The heating is concentrated precisely where the heat is needed most: in the seating area of the living space.

AIRFLOW.

The additional rear walls behind the cabinets and cushions let the air circulate behind the furniture and distribute the heat from the radiator throughout the entire room.


QUALITY MANAGEMENT

THE BEST MATERIAL FOR YOUR HOLIDAY STORIES.

We are constantly developing new ideas to make our vehicles even better. Sometimes we return to old inspiration: we only use the very best materials for our interior furnishings.

50,000 abrasion cycles testify to the long lifespan of the covers while the three-layer foam concept guarantees comfort when sitting on the sofa. Of course, we have also thought of functionality and designed the cushions so that you can simply lift up the seat and gain easy access to the storage space underneath.

Our push-to-open latches mean many of the doors don't need knobs, which can loosen with frequent pulling and pushing. The upper cabinets, with the latest hydraulic lifting technology, open and close quietly and smoothly.

Scratch-resistant 3D film gives the interior a high-quality imitation-wood look.

The floor is particularly robust thanks to its vinyl coating with a wooden look and structure.

A sturdy door with high-quality fittings separates the bedroom and bathroom from the living area. All the key fittings and hinges in the Smove are made of metal – simply so they will close securely and never wear out.
