Luxurious semi-integrated model ● Dynamic, striking design ● Exclusive detailed solutions ● High-quality equipment for travel at any time of year ● From the start 10-year no-leak guarantee
With the new Contura, Eura Mobil is nailing its colours to the mast in the semi-integrated sector from the 2020 season onwards. On the background of its newly developed strength in the semi-integrated range, the manufacturer from Sprendlingen is now targeting specialist, discerning clientele among those interested in the compact superstructure design.
In terms of automotive design with its striking light edges and flat connection between the driver’s cab and the modern GPR superstructure, the Contura is testimony to the exclusive approach of its designers.
The Contura coupled to an ALKO low-slung frame chassis creates a particularly torsion-resistant, resilient superstructure which, with its hot water heating and storage space-optimising double floor, creates the perfect conditions for journeys of any length at any time of year. Careful details are visible not just on the exterior, but also on the interior: the visually fluid transition of the wall units from the living room into the driver’s cab is accompanied on the ceiling by a two-part panoramic glass roof that is exclusive to Eura Mobil. The front element is integrated into the roof connection in the driver’s cab as a fixed glass roof, while the second roof window is designed as a pop-up roof with 20% more area than conventional tilting roofs, ensuring plenty of fresh air and a daylight atmosphere in the front of the cab. The large, two-part roof window creates a particularly fascinating effect in the evening under a starry sky, or in a morning at sunrise. The feeling of upwards open space creates its very own, unsurpassed generous charm.
The living room in the Contura is also characterised by the ideal combination of an atmospheric, feel-good ambience and highly practical properties. In terms of furniture and features, the Contura is modelled on the luxury integrated Integra which was unveiled in 2017.
Eura Mobil is shifting its emphasis onto light. In the interests of active safety, the Contura already comes with LED lighting technology as standard in the daytime running light and in the tail lights. In the tail lights, Eura Mobil uses dynamic LED indicators. A twin-eye camera in the rear, which, in addition to its classical function as a reversing tool, also serves as a device for monitoring the area behind the vehicle, further enhancing the safety equipment.
The lights are also used as a style feature for the vehicle’s design: a three-dimensionally curved rear panel with black diffuser element at frame height and a broad chrome bar between the large LED lights are characteristic of the new, top model’s elaborate design.
One of the development goals for the interior was lighting that is as efficient as it is stylish. Flat ceiling lights in the centre of the vehicle and in the ceiling canopies on the wall units brighten the interior with a glorious abundance of functional lighting. The kitchen surfaces and worktop are also illuminated. Even the wall units are indirectly illuminated inside thanks to concealed milling grooves.
The crucial element, however, is the variety of ambient lighting elements. The dimmable ambient lighting encompasses not only the wall unit lights, but also decorative elements such as the glass splashback in the kitchen or the lighting strips on the ceiling. The bedroom lighting is a real head-turner too: the light emanating from the numerous chrome bars on the back wall reflects the glow in a myriad of different ways, bathing the bed in a stylish, glittering shower of light. When the sliding door between the kitchen and bathroom is closed, a contact switch illuminates the acrylic glass panel with a floral light graphic, creating effective wall lighting instead of simply partitioning the two rooms. At the front of the vehicle, the enclosure of the large panoramic glass roof is also included in the ambient lighting system. Even tiny details such as the illuminated climb-in handle are integrated into the lighting concept.
The new Contura benefits from a furniture architecture that has been developed exclusively for the luxury class. A real feel-good atmosphere thanks to high-quality materials and first-class workmanship create the basis for travelling in style. Glossy wall units with high-grade wood appearances and broad chrome inlays testify even at first glance to the Contura’s premium-class aspirations. A lavish abundance of chrome elements can also be found in the base units, the bed panels on the back wall and in a host of other details. The otherwise matt surfaces of the furniture, as well as the work surfaces, furniture side panels and wall elements which are designed in light cream shades, stand in visually appealing contrast.
The living room is dominated, depending on the floor plan, by two luxurious longitudinal sofas or a classic L-shaped seating group with fleecy cushions instead of the classic back upholstery featuring the Contura’s lounge character. A heated windscreen and sound system are both among the other upgrade options.
In the kitchen, travellers can delight in an ergonomically curved kitchen block with large refrigerator, the surface-mounted hob with glass cover, swivel spring-arm tap and many illuminated storage cabinets. The glass display cabinet in the wall unit is a stylish and practical detail.
The washroom is influenced by the lighting provided by the back-lit shower column which, like the bathroom door, provides a relaxing ambience with its illuminated floral motif. The feel-good ambience is also a central element of the design in the sleeping area. The sophisticated back wall panel with indirectly illuminated chrome elements and, towards the centre of the vehicle, concave-shaped wall units, extend up to the ceiling to form flat, illuminated canopies, which continue up to the connecting door. Depending on the floor plan chosen, the bedrooms offer either two large single beds up to 2 metres in length, or one generous central bed for first-class sleeping comfort on massage mattresses. Under the beds, storage areas up to 1.24 m in height provide an abundance of storage space.
The heated double floor, which spans the entire vehicle – a feature typical for Eura Mobil – conceals all of the technical installations in the vehicle’s frost-protected cellar and offers further storage facilities that are accessible from the interior. A central technology compartment allows access to the water outlet tap and central electrical distributor from the outside. The waste water tank draining function with monitor control and camera guidance can be actuated at the press of a button from the driver’s seat: an optional feature that optimises user comfort. A new feature of Eura Mobil’s double floor concept is the additional, lowered floor and side storage compartments that are 30 cm tall.
The top class approach is also demonstrated by the ten-year guarantee against leaks in the superstructure and the three-year guarantee for the furniture construction. A modern construction, made of glued GRP composite material with wood-free walls and a robust furniture construction with aluminium profile reinforcements, is the backbone for this.
