New van update from Robeta :-)
Updated: Jun 2, 2018
Just received word that our van is att Dangel 4x4, getting the four-wheel drive system mounted. If you haven't heard about Dangel before, check it out at: http://www.dangel.com/en
"Automobiles Dangel designs produces 4x4s from production vehicles. The result is a comfortable cross-country vehicle that is easy to use and versatile. Unlike conventional 4x4s, Dangel vehicles are discreet and economical. They also offer a large loading capacity and are low-polluting." - Quote from Dangel's webpage.
One of many reasons for us choosing a Robeta Camper van, is definitely the 4x4 opportunity. We don't need a proper off-road vehicle, but having the choice to switch on four-wheel drive when going out on a lonely dessert beach to surf or when driving on winter mountain roads, snowboarding and skiing, means both accessibility but also more safety and security.
According to us, it should be some sort of standard to have a 4x4 option when buying a camper van from the major manufacturers, which we definitely haven't seen much of during out last years searching and researching for the perfect camper van manufacturer.
WHEN FINDING ROBETA MOBIL DOWN IN SLOVENIA EARLIER THIS YEAR, WE WERE THRILLED TO HAVE FOUND EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR: A CUSTOM MADE CAMPER VAN WITH A 4X4 OPTION, DESIGNED TO MEET THE NORDIC HARSH CONDITIONS!
Also, the fact that they hand craft their vehicles from scratch means a much more durable and perfect tailored camper van. At the factory they don't work with different work stations like most other camper van factories, instead the same employe builds one car at the time. When the camper van is completely build and done, the employe puts his/her signature on the car, similar to companies in the sports car business. This way the buyer gets a much more quality secured built camper van.
For us the choice was easy after having a chat with Robeta and what they could offer. We are so much looking forward to when our van will be ready for us and delivered this summer :-D
