How a German motorhome is made

Steph and Dud B

Recommended Posts

Interesting video on the manufacturing of German motorhomes. Quite a difference from the way American coaches are made, with a very favorable price point. Much more like a car assembly line than American RV factories. Some things were similar to Ollies, like the way the water pump and associated valves are preassembled before installation. Some unique features, too, like a freeze protection valve that automatically drains the water system if the internal temps drop to freezing, and a camera to help you position at the dump station. Pretty cool.

Radiant heat is great.  I remember our homes in Europe having radiant heat, either from wall radiators or heated floors.  It’s very consistent, doesn’t vary like our forced air heating.  Mike
