Dethleffs redesigns its Advantage
Inspired by the new facelift of the Fiat Ducato chassis the Dethleffs construction engineers decided to create a very new design for the Advantage series which is now available.
The new Advantage has updated exterior and internal design, a rust resistant body and six layouts. Lightweight materials mean that up to 819kg of load is available for the T 5901.
Matching the new Fiat chassis the Low Profile models have a modern, aero-dynamic cab hood. The body itself has no wooden inlets, steady PU struts, XPS insulation, GRP roof and GRP covered underfloor – therefore this should last!
There is a 70cm wide habitation door with the option of a large window. There is also an electrical entrance step and flyscreen door. For those of us who feel that we are not as strong as we used to be, both 11kg gas bottles are fitted on a slide-out floor.
The interior design
The new interior of the Advantage comes with a very new furniture concept. Dethleffs are using light-weight furniture in bi-colour design with curves. The new, slim construction of the overhead lockers includes the hidden installation duct for retro-fitting of sockets and lights. Dethleffs claim that while developing the furniture they have focused on good quality locks, handles and hinges. The new illumination concept comes with power-saving LED lighting.
The kitchen has large drawer compartments with soft close function, a 3-burner hob with variable cooker cover and a fold-away working surface extension. There is a slim 142 litre fridge with freezer compartment and a bottle pull-out for 1.5 l bottles.
The bathroom has a lot of storage possibilities and elbow room. The bathrooms of the 7051 layouts are spacious with a separate shower cubicle and the toilet.
The bedroom has cold foam mattresses. All A Class models now have a pull-down bed and cab blinds as standard.
Six layouts are available in the Advantage range and they are all available as Low Profile and A Class models. Options include a French bed, single beds or a king size bed. There are also various sizes for the garage.
