The European market of motorhomes has been dominated by German and Italian companies, offering a wide range of mobile homes – practically for every budget. Among the Italian manufacturers, especially noteworthy is company Rimor which has been present on the market since years, specializing in the construction of relatively light structures. Lighter even up to 20% than comparable models from competitors.
Not every fan of caravanning expects from his motorhome a living space for four people, with well-equipped interior and a separate dining area along with numerous cabinets or lockers. The basic model from the manufacturer from sunny Italy is Horus 30, meeting the basic needs of every traveler.
Mobility and functionality
More and more drivers value a mobility in every conditions more than a considerable living space and high-end finishing. Driving a long motorhome through a crowded city is not an easy or pleasant task – not to mention about parking. No wonder that many customers, not only for financial reasons, decides on motorhomes built on delivery cars.
Rimor company uses Ford Transit as a technical base, which is driven by diesel engine 2.2 TDCI that generates 85-155 HP. The exterior of Horus 30 only slightly distinguishes from a standard bus. Patterned stickers passing through the entire body and white vents reveal its recreational character.
Travel in 4, live in 3 people
Horus 30, just like many other similar constructions, will take four passengers along with equipment and will provide comfortable conditions for everyone. When we get to the campsite, unfortunately we will have only three sleeping places (located at the end of the interior), which obviously limits its functionality. Behind front seats was placed a practical, folding out table for four people, as well as a double sofa with seat belts.
On the opposite side of the interior there’s a kitchenette. Two-burner gas stove, painted countertop along with a single chamber sink make cooking very convenient. Further, you will find large wardrobes, or optionally a substitute of bathroom - equipped with a compact sink and toilet. Small size of the vehicle (less than 6 meters in length overall) forced the manufacturer to make the use of every inch. For this reason, shelves and lockers were mounted from the ceiling on both sides of the vehicle.
Equipment and budgetary character
Relatively attractive price - 37,000 euros - had to find a reflection in the quality of finishing materials. On the floor, instead of a nice lining the manufacturer used a cheap (plastic) replacement – facilitating cleaning of the interior. Similar savings can be seen on the walls, which were covered with white plywood.
Unfortunately, Rimor Horus 30 isn’t a flawless structure – the care for low production costs can be felt especially while driving. Then the wooden construction crackles and gives off a lot of disturbing noises.
