It turns out not for the first time that people who want their camper to look ultra-modern inside should look towards Italian manufacturers. Caravans International has just launched a new model with an intelligent energy-saving system, remote communication, and yes - with furniture straight from interior design magazines.

Twice is a charm

Caravans International (the brand is also known as CI ) is the largest Italian manufacturer of motorhomes. His daughter brand - Roller Team - is better known in Poland. Moreover, it is worth noting that the name Triaca was initially reserved for the prototype of the latter brand.

In 2015, Roller Team presented an innovative camper with attention-grabbing features such as an electrically lowered table and an electrically raised footrest . When removed, the decorative cover of the cabinet turned out to be an additional table, and the accordion-shaped roof completed the impression that we were dealing with a camper of the future.


The new model - CI Triaca 32 XT - only partially refers to that prototype. And it's probably a good thing - instead of "goodies", this time the focus was on practical solutions. And yet, in several respects the final design is consistent with the prototype.

Modern and practical

We will notice similarities primarily in the interior layout, which is open. Even the manufacturer himself describes it as "open space" . Due to the lack of zoning, the interior seems more spacious.

Secondly, a kitchen similar to the prototype. Interestingly, it is made of a special material - waterproof, antibacterial, temperature-resistant and easy to repair. It was built using resin and – whatever that means – “nanotechnology”. The advantage is definitely a large, 165-liter refrigerator with a separate freezer. Attention is also drawn to the refinement of details, e.g. appropriate compartments are provided for the removable sink covers. Unlike the prototype, gas burners were used instead of an electric induction hob.


The third similarity - a bed that folds out across the entire width of the vehicle . With just a few movements, two sofas and a table between them can be transformed into a large bed. The second sleeping place slides out from under the ceiling and is lowered electrically above the lower bed. The beds have dimensions of 1900 x 1370 mm and 2120 x 1460 mm.

Just look at the photos to see that the interior was designed in a style typical of apartments . Straight lines and delicate curves, bright colors, high gloss - this design makes the interior seem more spacious than it actually is, and because white surfaces reflect light, it is very bright in the camper.

A camper controlled by a smartphone

An important distinguishing feature of the Triac model is the Lin Bus wireless communication system using Wi-Fi. This system allows you to control many on-board functions using an application on your smartphone or tablet. With its help, we can, among others: control the interior lighting, water pump, check the battery charge and tank fill level.

The camper is also equipped with an energy-saving system that tries to constantly optimize electricity consumption in the vehicle. For example, the interior lighting may be dimmed when the batteries are low.

Less surprising, but no less practical, is the use of a double floor . Thanks to this, there is more space for loading in the camper, and there is also room under the floor for on-board equipment, tanks, cables and pipes. A double floor also means better thermal and acoustic insulation .

Triaca is based on Fiat Ducato with a 2.3 engine with a power of (optional): 130 HP, 150 HP and 180 HP. The length of the camper is 597 cm and the width is 231 cm. The permissible total weight is the traditional 3.5 tons, and the vehicle with standard equipment weighs 2,883 kg . Water and sewage tanks each hold 100 liters. Unfortunately, the price of the camper is not known yet.

It is worth adding that regardless of which CI brand camper we choose, we will always receive a 6-year warranty on the tightness of the structure .
