We have the C Line Chic love the van but Carthago are crap when it comes to parts we have been waiting six months for 3 new blinds and the media centre still pulls power from the engine battery when you watch TV
Still love the van and I’m sure you will love yours too enjoy
Good choice, we love our newish Carthago, 15 months of ownership and apart from a Dometic FF problem, everything works and nothing has fallen off. Ours came pretty basic as it was on a dealer forecourt,we upgraded the weight because of poor initial payload, we have fitted all the toys we now need to be off grid and enjoy our own "media Center" with HI FI & TV.
Lovely vans well built, and good dealer service thus far.
We have ordered a Compactline from Chelston but not due to be built until June, trying to be patient. Visited Southdowns but they could not show us a 2019 model and had not ordered any. Chelston had a 2019 one we could look at so they got our order.
We have a Chic C Line 5.0 on the heavy chassis with an upgrade to 4.5 tons. She is LHD, 150BHP and Comfortmatic. We have added VB full air and E&P auto levelling.
Coming up to 4 yrs old and with all the warranty niggles well sorted she is a well used and well loved van.
I hear lots of complaints about crap parts supply, not only @Zepp's problems but others too. We really haven't had any parts problems and our dealer, Go European, have been pretty good. Carthago won't get involved in any direct contact though, they will always refer you back to the dealer.
As @Lenny HB says, the C-lines are built in Slovenia in a new factory but I don't see why there should be any difference in quality. The senior management will still be the same and require the same standards as the German factory.
Best of luck with the new van and if I can advise/help on anything just shout.
Yes we are another Carthago owner - Highliner, ..ours was the display model at the Dussledorf mh show 2yrs ago collected it at the german factory after the show ended...have a couple of small niggles with it but still an excellent choice ..plenty of payload and a great ride ...fully automatic and E & P levelling fitted on Iveco chassis...
Exciting times for you ahead...it will be worth the wait
Wishing you many happy times in it
We too have got the heavy chassis and 4500kg upgrade
I have been told by adding full air it can be put up to 4800kg but I will never need that
This one has a built in inverter with a panel above the door do any of yours have this also has air con in the habitation area again looks like this works through the Aldi control panel but need a good demo off the dealer on collection to find out how it all works
We have the built in inverter for the coffee machine it works well you will need a two pin adaptor for a U.K. plug.
We also have the aircon it’s a great bit of kit ours is also linked to the Aldi but we just use the remote it will run on 6amps on setting 1
