Unrivalled comfort

UNRIVALLED COMFORT

BEDDING: ONE OF THE BEST BENCHMARKS

Particular care has been taken to offer you optimum density foam designed to last, which boasts the BULTEX® label. As an example, the BULTEX® foam mattress in the rear bedroom is 155 mm-thick (memory foam mattress topper thickness included*). Combining comfort and style, the permanent bed mattresses in the 2018 Collection boast a new high quality stretch fabric with braid trim finish for even more style
(braid trim on the mattress or mattress topper).

Aluminium base frame and active slats

The active slats mean the base can match your body movements and position on the mattress as you sleep. This gives gentle comfort as your body is suspended.

Your permanent bed features an aluminium base frame and active slats as standard. Slat beds provide natural ventilation for your mattress.

This ventilation has several positive effects: it extends the life of your mattress, enables better air circulation, prevents overheating in summer and reduces the risk of allergies and rheumatism problems.

Memory foam mattress topper

This mattress topper features foam that moulds to the shape of your body and returns to its original shape when you get up. It moulds effectively to your body when you sleep, creating an enveloping effect and gently absorbing movements.

Yet, this mattress topper doesn’t only focus on your wellbeing. It is also:

Stylish: made from soft-to-the-touch, matching material, this mattress topper blends seamlessly with the new 2018 Collection looks.

Protective: the mattress topper offers protection for your mattress. You can wash this detachable topper whenever you wish.

1 . Day side with style fabric, mattress skirt and bias binding / 2. Night side with quilted stretch fabric on 50 kg/m3 SENSUS® viscoelastic foam / 3. Total mattress thickness up to 155 mm

* Option for Series 6F, 8F and 80dF; EXECUTIVE PACK for Series 70F and DISTINCTION.

THE COMFORT OF RAPIDO UPHOLSTERY

SEATING COMFORT IN THE LIVING ROOM

The living room seats have had an overhaul for the 2018 Collection. They feature brand new high density, high resistance foam. This promises a firm, comfortable seat that will last!
The improved seating offers an angled back combined with strong lower back support to provide excellent kidney support and make you feel that you are sitting on a sofa in the lounge of a five-star hotel !

DRIVING COMFORT IN THE CAB

All our models are fitted with special motorhome seats. In addition to being truly comfortable, they can also be set to your ideal position with adjustable back and seat height and angle. Designer yet practical, their ergonomic shape supports your slightest movement.

HEATING

Comfort aboard your vehicle is directly connected to the heating in your motor home. That’s why RAPIDO has developed a number of technologies, so you can always find one to suit your needs.

TRUMA heating

This heating system operates on gas and electricity (EH option). Air and water are heated using powerful electric resistance heating. Hot air is optimally circulated to the living area through several air vents.

In most models, the TRUMA heating system is located in the kitchen area, i.e. in the central part of the vehicle, to provide the best output possible and evenly heat the front and rear of the vehicle. This optimal location was determined from tests jointly conducted by TRUMA and RAPIDO.

In all our models, this heating system is operated from the CP PLUS control panel, which features a digital display and programming options.

A-class motorhomes in Series 80dF and DISTINCTION feature a heating duct set into the bottom of the windscreen. Extremely effective at handling this cool zone, it acts as a barrier against the cold.

Not compatible with the WEBASTO cab heating option.

TRUMA iNet

All models equipped with the TRUMA C6 EH heating option also boast the iNet feature. This innovation is backed by RAPIDO. It gives you the ability to remotely control your TRUMA heating system from your smartphone or tablet.

And for increased comfort, RAPIDO offers insulating cold-weather cab cladding, double glazing on the cab front side windows (except driver’s door), a heated floor and more (see details).

ALDE CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEM : ARCTIC COMFORT PLUS

Up to 25 convectors: equal to 18m of convector length !
1. The plate heat exchanger uses heat from the engine to heat the ALDE system / 2. Independent bedroom temperature control / 3. Full cab heating / 4. Blown air for faster heating / 5. Full double floor heating

Our Alde heating system has become a benchmark for the market, generating and evenly distributing heat throughout the living area and cab (A-Class windscreen and cabliving area connection), with the option of setting the bedroom temperature separately. The gas boiler feeds a network of pipes and convectors to create a flow of warm air along the walls. The partitions, furniture and air are gradually heated, forming a barrier of warm air which insulates the windows. It also features a Frost Control system that lets you drain the water system when the outdoor temperature gets below 7°C, to avoid frost damage.

  • Available as standard on the 665F, 7065F, 7096F, 8065dF, and DISTINCTION i66, i165 & i190.
  • Available as an option on the 8066dF, 8090dF, 8096dF and DISTINCTION i96.

Working in collaboration with the ALDE team, RAPIDO has developed a top-of-therange central heating system that has been tested, with great success, in Scandinavia. RAPIDO ALDE’s high performance is the result of our continuous improvement programme, and the system regularly passes cold room tests.

GRADE 3
Temperature increase from -15°C to at least +20°C in under 4 hours with an external temperature of -15°C and delta of under 7°C between 5 measurement points.
