Stability and road holding for mobile homes. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Extra driving stability for rear-heavy camper vans. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the models Fiat Ducato, Renault Master and Ford Transit.Modern day camper vans are hi tech vehicles which make the never-ending dream of extended holiday mobility come true. Therefore campers demand a safer vehicle performance which particularly puts the tires into focus.
The VancoCamper™ meets the demands of camping vehicle manufacturers, the caravaning press and campers themselves. It complies to the special „CP“ (Camping Pneu) tire standard. The concept of the VancoCamper™ is to use long well-proven Vanco technique, optimize its performance for distinguished motorcaravan requirements and thus cater to the needs of this specific target segment.
High safety reserves for camper van application
Robust contruction for improved durability in rough camping environments
Reduced stopping distance on wet surfaces
Extra driving stability for rear-heavy camper vans
Long service intervals, as the tires' air pressure is held permanently above the minimum pressure
Extra driving stability for rear-heavy camper vans. Stiff sidewall construction for stronger transverse support for loaded rear axles.
Improved durability in rough camping environments. Reinforced belt and carcass design for high resistance against abrasion, overloading and exterior impacts.
Reduced stopping distance on wet surfaces. Optimised tread compound for improved grip on wet surfaces.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
