A new, modern-looking addition to the CI Motorhome range, replete with luxurious features such as stone benchtops and a 32-inch TV, is set to arrive in New Zealand in the New Year

And that’s only the start, says New Zealand distributor, Shane Smale. With the last 12 months having proven exceptionally busy for Shane Smale at Caravans International New Zealand, 2018 is only set to get busier still.

A fair bit of early activity will be down to one motorhome in particular; the incoming CI Triaca 32XT. We’ve only seen press images from Europe, but this modern-looking motorhome promises a lot.

The six-metre, four berth camper will arrive on Fiat’s proven Ducato chassis, and features a host of premium features on-board. Notable are new ‘Fenix’ stone benchtops matched with nice curved panelling, giving the Triaca’s interior a unique look.

The feature set looks top-notch too. Shane says that this modelwill boast a drop-down bed augmented with a ‘make-up’ bed in the motorhome’s centre, flush panels and drawers in the kitchen, along with a three-burner gas hob, full fridge/freezer and slide-out pantry, Webasto heating and an AV Tech automatic satellite dish. Oh, and the pictures being beamed in via satellite will be able to be enjoyed on a full 32-inch flatscreen TV too.

"The level of fit and finish, as well as the list of amenities in this six-metre motorhome really is exceptional," says Shane. "We’re very happy to be able to offer the Triaca 32XT for $144,000 too, which is great value for money when considering how good the new model looks."

It doesn’t end here for the local CI Motorhomes distributor though. All up, the CI model range will number seven in 2018, including the new Kyros prestige van, a new rear-bed Magis 63P and CI’s Riviera range, which measures in at between seven- and 7.4m vehicle lengths, and which hasn’t been available in this country up until now.

"Our range is growing and modernising all the time," says Shane. "We pride ourselves on offering exceptional service to match some really fantastic motorhomes.

"We’ve pushed up the specification across the board, so our customers get features like Eco-Leather, 16" alloys, Michelin tyres and other premium equipment without any hidden costs. There are no surprises with our growing range."
