We’ve all used onboard heating and air-con, especially over the past few months during the UK’s summer heatwave. As time rolls on it seems that our spring and summer months will be getting hotter and hotter, hence the need for more innovative cutting edge air conditioning technology. So we have a good look at the Truma, a product you either own or have never been more than 20 feet away on site, at the Dusseldorf Caravan Salon.
Having spent a fair amount of time with Truma’s UK Managing Director on the Bristanbul tour I got to find out that onboard heating systems are a lot more intricate than I first thought. It is true that every day is a school day.
At this year’s Salon Truma had one of the more impressive stands on display. Not only were Truma displaying brand new tech but the whole stand was completely interactive. Everything TV monitor was actually giant touch screen, imagine a 55″ iPad, an interactive spin the wheel game where a prize is won on every spin.
The stand out product on the Truma stand is the Aventa comfort. Truma Aventa comfort cools your vehicle to a pleasant temperature within a very short time. The air is also cleaned and dehumidified to ensure a pleasant indoor climate even with minor differences between the inside and outside temperature. But the powerful roof-mounted air conditioning system can do even more: it can also be used as a heater. Thanks to the integrated heat pump, you can heat your motorhome or caravan especially on cooler days in spring and autumn. And it’s extremely energy-saving.
So for some expert advice on your onboard heating products be sure to visit C31 in Hall 13. And as always you can visit them directly on their website, Truma.com.
