Benimar Amphitryon - two new models – main image

The Spanish brand Benimar flexes its muscles more and more boldly in almost every segment of the motorhome market. Modern design and excellent value for money are the main arguments for buyers. Recently, we have paid a lot of attention to the winter versions of the Northautokapp - READ HERE

Today we present you 2 new integrals, news for the upcoming season - Amphitryon 983 and 961 models. Amphitryon is in Greek mythology the grandson of the hero of Perseus, but in common tradition this figure has become a symbol of hospitality. Borrowed from the French "Amphitrion" from the text of Molière's comedy "Amphitryon" has adopted a name for a hospitable master of the house, a host who generously welcomes guests. And indeed, after crossing the threshold of these two exclusive motorhomes, we can feel like in the cozy home of a generous host.

The common feature of both new models is a spacious bathroom with a separate shower cubicle, a basket and a towel rail. Moreover, these are the only versions in the manufacturer's range with bathroom windows.

Aphitryon 983 - an unusual arrangement for 5 people


The new Amphitryon 983 is 699 cm long and takes up to 5 people on board (this is how many lanes and sleeping places can be ordered here). The living room consists of a large L-shaped sofa placed longitudinally in the direction of travel, two swivel airplane seats and an additional seat on the right side of the entrance.


The Integra with a lift-up bed at the front also has an unusual layout at the rear. At the top there is a large wardrobe for clothes. A garage is located below, which, after a minor modification, allows us to create an additional bed. The structure of the building is practically without wood, and the insulation is extruded polystyrene ( XPS ) - the best solution currently used.

The size of the lifted bed at the front is 190x140 cm, while at the back it is 131x203 cm. The optional fifth person sleeping is 74 x 191 cm.

Amphitryon 961 - a family classic


The second model, Amphitryon 961, is designed for 4 people and has a different interior layout at the same length - one could say more "classic". The rear bedroom has two single beds . They are placed quite high, and access to them is facilitated by a retractable step. A wardrobe for clothes (hangers) is located under the left bed. Interestingly, we also gain direct access to the garage through the door inside the vehicle.


The front saloon consists of a bench placed transversely to the direction of travel, an extendable table, swiveling seats for the driver and passenger , and an additional seat at the entrance. Over the living room there is a pull-down bed measuring 190 x 149 cm. The kitchen in this model is not the largest, but next to the cabinets and drawers, we get a 3-burner stove with a piezoelectric igniter, a sink and an absorber. A refrigerator with a capacity of 140 l is standard in this class of vehicles.

Extensive standard equipment

In total, the Amphitryon range includes 5 models with lengths from 699 to 742 cm. All variants are based on a Fiat Ducato with a 140 horsepower engine and a manual 6-speed gearbox. You can order a more powerful 180 HP version. When assessing the realistically available load capacity of the above-mentioned vehicles and taking into account their high curb weight (on average about 3080 kg), it is definitely worth considering increasing the GVM to 4.4 tons. Then we will not have to worry about overloading.

The standard equipment includes a media station with Bluetooth, airbags, cruise control, AMS and ESP, electrically adjustable and heated mirrors and parking sensors. The recommended addition is the Delivery Pack with a reversing camera , solar panel and outdoor lighting in LED technology. Fans of winter trips should consider the Winter package, which includes ALDE heating, an insulated and heated gray water tank and insulating mats to protect the driver's cabin.


The authorized representative and service partner of the brand in Poland, the ACK company from Kędzierzyn Koźle, will be happy to answer any questions related to Benimar vehicles.

ACK is also one of the largest stores with accessories, parts and caravanning equipment. Dealer website:
