More About Chausson Alteo 159
Just Occasionally ..
Something Unusual.. Something Special Comes Along, And This Week At T C Motorhomes Here It Is !!
The Chausson ALTEO 159 `A` Class Motorhome is a classic case-in-point !
It`s a fully winterised `A` Class Motorhome, and licensed under the PLG category, so no special license required ...
With A Left-Hand-Drive, ( ideal for some continental motoring ) .. the ALTEO 159 is a 2 x berth Compact `A` Class motorhome, with drop-down cantilever bed over the cab, a comfortable, spacious forward lounge with x 2 x passenger seat-belts, a mid kitchen .. oh and for the wild-campers out there .. a terrific rear wash-room with separate shower cubicle.
Everywhere you look in the Alteo you`ll find a cupboard, a locker or a storage drawer so its a motorhome you can easily keep tidy !
External storage is excellent too ! .. this really is a tardis at only just over 6 x metres in length ( including the tow-bar ), which makes parking and negotiating your way through the countryside that much easier.
That said, the ALTEO is an easier drive than many other motorhomes for other reasons, coming as it does with a reversing camera and front & rear parking sensors.
The cab is well appointed to keep the driver and front seat passenger comfortable and safe on their journeys, including fully adjustable Isringhausen captains chairs with height, rake, reach and swivel adjustments, a 6 x speed manual gearbox, Cab Air-Conditioning, Twin Air Bags, ABS Brakes, and electrically lowered front sun blind.
The kitchen is well equipped with a 3 x gas burner hob, and Smev Oven / Grill combo that sits above the large larder style fridge and separate freezer.
There are additional downlighters over the hob so you can see what your cooking.. and if it`s meat, fish or a curry dish thats on, there is a useful over hob extracator fan and also a roof mounted Omnister expelair that can bring fresh air in, or can expel nasty cooking smells.
The blown-air heating and hot water Truma combi-boiler can be used with a Gas or Electric power source, and with the excellent insulation properties of the Chausson you`ll rarely be cold,
and with the roof mounted Solar Panel, you should rarely find yourself short on battery power either.
