Sprint to the Finish
The latest Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is the perfect base vehicle for the thoughtfully laid out Horizon Motorhomes Acacia.
There has been a vast number of improvements in motorhome design and manufacture in the last 10 years or so. Not least of which has been the contribution from the (mostly European) base vehicle manufacturers which have, in some cases, developed a special production line just for motorhomes. In the more specific cases of van conversions, the advent of vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van was a game changer and continues to be.
Take one of the latest models – a 416CDI Sprinter, which Horizon Motorhomes has used for its Acacia motorhome. It comes with a 120kW 2.2L turbodiesel that drives through a super-slick seven-speed auto gearbox. In addition, the vehicle ha a GVM of 4490kg, which gives it a very impressive load capacity. Finally, there’s its external length of 6.96m (22ft 10in), which gives Horizon’s Clayton Kearney and his design team plenty of internal space to play with.
