New series of motorhomes
With Just Go, Dethleffs bets on Ford Transit
The motorhome industry also has delivery problems – nevertheless, Dethleffs is launching a new series in three variants with the Just Go. For better availability, the semi-integrated vehicle is built on a Ford Transit.
The Ford Transit is undoubtedly one of the beneficiaries of the current delivery problems in the motorhome industry. Since the Cologne transporter is obviously more readily available as a base vehicle than the market leader Fiat Ducato, more and more manufacturers are turning to the Transit and introducing new series based on the Ford, which is usually even a little cheaper – as is now the traditional company Dethleffs with the partially integrated Just Go model at prices from around 60,000 euros.
The manufacturer from Isny im Allgäu, which is part of the Erwin Hymer Group, presented the entry-level Just 90 series last year for its 90th anniversary as an inexpensive motorhome with ready-to-go equipment. traveling on a Ducato chassis.
At the same time, the Allgäu-based company is now positioning the new Just-Go series, whose basic equipment is based on the Ford Transit with a 96 kW/130 hp Eco-Blue diesel engine and a wide range of comfort and safety equipment. These include cruise control and a digital DAB+ car radio with steering wheel remote control as well as numerous assistance systems such as emergency brake, hill start, crosswind and safety brake assistants. Comfortable, rotatable, height- and tilt-adjustable pilot seats with two armrests are also on board as standard.
Slight differences from the Just 90 models
However, the external differences with the Just 90 models are minimal. Of course, the cabin bonnet had to be adjusted and a new taillight bracket is used at the rear.
At market launch in mid-May, the semi-integrated Just Go will be available in three layout variants. The 6.99 meter long T 6815 EB has single beds in the rear and an L-shaped galley in the middle opposite the bathroom. The T 7055, which is 37 centimeters longer, is also available as an EB version with single beds, but can also be ordered as a DBL version with a central height-adjustable queen-size bed in the rear. The two lengthwise floor plans feature a spacious bathroom with a separate shower that can be separated from the living room.
142 liter refrigerator and rear garage
The dimensions of the refrigerator (142 liters) and the tanks for fresh water (115 liters) and waste water (95 liters) are at the best class level. The rear garages come standard with a non-slip floor surface and new smooth-rolling turnbuckles.
We recommend a comprehensive comfort package (extra charge of 8,000 euros for the T6815 and 7,400 euros for the T7055 models), which, in addition to additional equipment for the basic vehicle such as headlight assistant, rain sensor and air conditioning, also includes windows in the cab bonnet and the body door, a 70 centimeter long midi pop-up roof above the seat, pleated blackout in the driver’s cabin, possibility of transforming single beds into beds double, a second garage door on the left and ambient lighting. The package thus offers price savings of more than 3200 euros compared to individual items.
Let’s go, we can do better
An assistance package with additional safety assistants is also available for both versions, as well as Package One for around 4800 euros, which includes factory equipment with an awning, reversing camera, flat screen from 22 inches and an automatic satellite system. A more powerful 118 kW/160 hp engine, automatic transmission instead of manual, trailer hitch, electric underfloor heating, solar system or electric drop-down bed above the seating group offer further customization options.
The price range of the Detheffs Just Go T6815 starts at 59,199 euros, the T7055 EB costs at least 60,499 euros and the T7055 DBL is available from 62,599 euros.
