Three distinct ranges widen the appeal of Autocruise's coachbuilt motorhome family

Autocruise moves into 2009 with three distinct ranges of coachbuilt motorhome, each with a different level of specification, increasing the choice from this award winning company.

The family starts with the Star Range which retains the core Autocruise values of innovation combined with craftsmanship and offers good value for money. The newly named Star Plus range consists of three best selling models all with an AL-KO low line chassis and the luxury Driving range has been upgraded with a much higher specification as standard.

All ranges have common key features which include tough yet light aluminium sections for a strong, rigid frame with 1.5mm GRP impact resistant side walls, high quality Seitz double locking burstproof habitation door with opening window, swing out and lift up worktop extensions, positive catches on locker doors for secure storage, mainly LED lighting which saves energy, giving up to three times longer battery life and a retractable electric entrance step for easy access to the living accommodation.

The repositioned Star Range incorporates five models carefully crafted to meet specific needs, including two new layouts – the Starquest, a true family model with 4 travelling and sleeping positions and the Sportstar, an ultra low profile compact 3 berth model with permanent rear bed and ‘garage’ style storage area underneath. The Starblazer layout has been improved and now has provision for 4 berths and travelling seats to complement its vast storage locker. The 2 berth Stargazer and Starspirit complete the range, both having an ultra low profile body shell with an overall height of 2.65m (8’8”).

Competitively priced, the range has a high specification with key features including a 130 bhp engine with 6 speed gearbox (100 bhp in the smaller Sportstar), spare wheel and tyre, windscreen blinds and thermal side screens and Truma Ultraheat dual fuel central heating.

Additional specification that is now standard to this range includes a 112 litre automatic energy selection fridge freezer and domestic standard washroom doors and locks. The Truma blown air heating can now also be used whilst on the move.

The Star Plus range offers all the benefits of the Star range with the addition of an AL-KO low line chassis designed to improve stability, road holding and cornering performance. The AL-KO chassis also comes with rear corner steadies for more stability when on pitch.

This ultra low-profile range offers three popular models, with the award winning Starburst, Stardream and the recently added Startrail with a fixed rear bed. Starburst and Startrail have mains lights and all models have a spacious ‘L’ shaped kitchen, separate shower areas and a powerful Truma Combi 6kW/2kW dual fuel space and water heater. These models are designed for comfort and driving performance with a 130bhp engine with 6 speed gearbox as standard.

Both the Star and Star Plus ranges can be upgraded with the optional ‘Lux’ pack consisting of a roll-out awning, portable Satnav with detailed Western Europe cover and full postcode entry, colour reversing camera with infra-red night vision and sound and a 15” flatscreen TV with integrated Freeview and DVD player.

The Driving range has a new higher specification which firmly positions it in the luxury market sector. The range consists of three larger motorhomes providing even more space, innovations and technology as standard. All models are built on an AL-KO chassis giving a better overall quality of ride.

The Gleneagle has a new low line body shell and the Augusta has a new kitchen with a 175 litre fridge/freezer and wider beds. Both these models have a panoramic “Skyview” opening roof window above the cab. The recently added Oakmont continues to offer fixed rear island bed.

The standard specification now includes many items that were previously optional like alloy wheels, cab air-conditioning, cruise control, roll-out awning, sat nav and reversing camera. Details like fresh and waste water tank heaters make these models true all year round tourers.

Other top of the range features include Alde radiator central heating and hot water system with 24/7 programming, Dometic cooker hood and a built in microwave oven.

Nick Page, Commercial Director of Autocruise owners Swift Group commented, "Autocruise's great reputation for quality and innovation combined with attention to practical details will be re-inforced by the design improvements we have made for the 2009 ranges and the two new layouts in the Star range fill important gaps in the model line-up".
