Why do people choose 4WD motorhomes? The answer lies on the surface - our people tend to climb away from civilization, closer to nature, and not crowd in campsites, as most vacationers in Europe do. It is for these purposes that companies produce expeditionary motorhomes on an all-wheel drive base. They are equipped with everything necessary and, at the request of the client, can be completed with additional elements. You will learn about Hyde 4x4 motorhomes and others in this article.

There are a sufficient number of different models, ranging from Russian manufacturers to foreign ones, but it was invented abroad to put the top of the caravan on the base of an all-wheel drive chassis. This article will focus on several cars from various manufacturers.

Besides the fact that it is built on the basis of the all-wheel drive chassis from Mercedes, you can optionally order a differential lock and a reduction gear, that is, a complete set of necessary equipment. Four people can fit in this motorhome without any problems, but two are most comfortable in it. The kitchen is spacious with plenty of space for cooking and lots of storage drawers. The bathroom is equipped with a separate shower, which is very convenient. Pressing a button above the dining group lowers the double bed, so if there are two people in the motorhome, the table can not be folded.

This circuit uses very practical and useful technology. A Russian person will surely like the presence of all-wheel drive and various locks, given the quality of our roads, as well as their absence.

What about ours?

For some reason, Russian companies do not produce all-wheel drive motorhomes, or rather they are produced, but this is a different class of cars. Russian campers are most often built on a cargoplatform, for example, the base from Kamaz. They already have a completely different fuel consumption, they are more intended for hunters than for ordinary people, but since they exist, they should be in this article.

Motorhome "KAMAZ 43118"

It was built on the basis of a three-axle chassis from Kamaz 43118. Residential modules have a rectangular shape, made of sandwich panels. The presence of a fairly large layer of insulation and the presence of stiffeners allows you to feel comfortable in any terrain and climate. The entire motorhome is painted in camouflage.

The cabin itself received only the most necessary things, namely: music, an autonomous Webasto cabin heater and a rear-view camera. In order for you to be able to drive over any terrain, an electric winch is installed on the car. You can get into the living compartment using a retractable ladder.

The kitchen of our motorhome is much simpler than European analogues, but it can accommodate as many as six people! But even in such a seemingly small kitchen, you will find everything you need: a gas stove, a microwave, a refrigerator, and even an extractor hood.

The shower cabin, as in European models, is located separately from the bathroom. The cabin itself has a heated tray, which is quite a nice option.

In addition to the dining area, which, if necessary, can be laid out for six beds, there is alsodepartment with a double bed equipped with an orthopedic mattress.

This is the end of the standard set of rooms, but, at the request of the buyer, a sauna can be installed in the motorhome.
