    Can someone please tell me what the difference is between the carthago c line and the e line versions

    I am struggling to see the differences as there are different models in both the c line and e line models

    Its all a bit confusing if you ask me

    Depends what you want the C-Line offers reasonable spec with good payload. The E-Line offers a better spec Alde heating, larger tanks,bigger locker space and heavy duty fittings on the plumbing. The downside is the payload suffers on the E-Line unless you go for 6-wheel version. It also has more headroom and is generally longer spec/spec as layouts similiar. We like you looked at both decided the E-Line was worth the premium and have been very pleased with quality of the van.

    Air con in the habitation area
    Cupboards in lou of the bed over the seats
    Extra sky lights in the lounge area

    I've been in Jon's e-line a few times it does ooze quality and if you can afford it well worth the extra cash.
    You do need to budget for a soap box to stand on to reach the roof lights.:)

    That’s a good spec, that’s the kind of spec I put on my spreadsheet which reduced the price gap. Also I have been to the Carthago factory in Germany and seen where the e-line/s-line is built our previous van was a C-tourer built in Slovenia which was good but the current one better on fit and finish. My mate Lenny and I have had big conversations comparing Hymer & Carthago, think the bottom line being Hymer is more inavative but Carthago better quality.
    Also Lenny likes a deal and he can do that easier on Hymer.
    So bottom line you pays you’re money and makes your choice, either way C or E line both very good vans.....Enjoy!!

    When I was looking 3 years ago both had double floors but the E liner one was higher and gave you a lot of storage under the floor.

    Pretty sure the c line is the "compact" version. Its main selling point is that it is narrower than most A classes and so easier to manouevre

    That's the C-Compact line, they also do a C-Tourer which is the wider one, then there's the Chic C-Line too which I suspect is the one being discussed with is a chubby one too.

    Of course not, just trying to understand what Jon was implying ... doesn't mean I agree with it ... :D2

    Now to me, Lenny me old chum, u iz sensible ... like wot I iz ... no point in spending loads of dosh for 'bling' so you can legitimately wear a heavy gold medallion round your neck like Stringfellow used to ... you're more of a chocolate penny kind of guy! :LOL:

    I can confirm LennyHB always pays his round, but he does like a haggle and feels the pain if finds someone has bought better, he’s very proud of his Fork Lift Truck credentials and enjoys taking the pe.... out of me on the money I waste on prison sites.

    Getting back to the original post from LA it’s worth joining the Carthago Owners Club as has very good Facebook forum should you need any info on your Chic and has lots going on both here and abroad,
