AL-KO chassis for motorhomes is now also available with the Mercedes Benz Sprinter tractor head

The AL-KO chassis for motorhomes is now available with the Fiat, Peugeot, Citroën, Volkswagen and Mercedes Benz Sprinter tractor heads (BM910). In addition to the extra tractor head variants, the BM910 is also available as a 2- or 3-axle version. The performance of the AL-KO lightweight chassis is particularly impressive due to its higher payload capacity, optimum driving dynamics and outstanding driving comfort. The result is a significant increase in safety. The innovative AL-KO Vehicle Technology concept is based on a hot-dip galvanized lightweight chassis and the wide track chassis with independent wheel suspension. Another unique selling point is the standard torsion bar suspension.

The well-known advantages of the AL-KO chassis can also be found in the Mercedes Benz Sprinter tractor head variant:

  • Increased payload: The versatile AL-KO lightweight chassis with a permitted gross weight of up to 4,500 kg (2-axle) or 5,500 kg (3-axle) enables a significantly higher payload.
  • Custom dimensions: Variable wheelbases and overhangs in conjunction with the offered axle and frame gauges enable a customised solution for nearly all motorhome bodies and layouts for optimal axle distribution.
  • ESP:The electronic stability program ESP is also available for the 2- and 3-axle AL-KO-CHASSIS based on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter as a standard additional safety feature for all AL-KO chassis variants. The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with its AL-KO lightweight chassis also offers a multitude of other intelligent driver assistance systems.
  • Wide track chassis: The larger rear axle gauge, up to 210 mm compared to the original series chassis, has optimal driving stability and driving dynamics, thus ensuring the best possible safety and outstanding driving comfort.
  • Trailing arm axle: The optimally coordinated AL-KO trailing arm axle with independent wheel suspension and torsion bar suspension ensures convincing, car-like suspension comfort. For the highest demands for comfort, the new Air Premium full air suspension system with automatic level control, lifting/lowering and auto-level function is also available as an option.
  • Long service life: The hot-dip galvanised chassis construction guarantees the finest corrosion protection.
  • Easy to service: Bolted frame parts are easy to service and ensure short periods of downtime for repairs.
