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, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
