Turin, 11 January 2017
International awards keep on coming for Ducato: beating the Mercedes Sprinter and Iveco Daily, for the tenth year running it won the prestigious award of ‘Best camper base 2017’, conferred by the readers of ‘Promobil’, the German trade magazine that has been a reference for the motorhome sector for the last 25 years. A reaffirmation that shows how much customers trust Fiat Professional Ducato.
Used as the base for many variants of camper built by various producers, Ducato managed to beat the competition of similar vehicles once again. Roberto Fumarola, Manager FCA EMEA for the motorhome sector and Bernd Wachtel, Manager for the motorhome sector at FCA Germany AG, will accept the award at the CMT in Stuttgart, which is the largest public trade fair for Leisure and Tourism in Europe.
Ducato, Fiat Professional’s iconic model, kept its unchallenged leadership in the "large van" segment - from 2.8 to 4.4 tons – in 2016, and was the best selling camper in thirteen markets. To date, three out of four motorhomers travel on a camper van with a Ducato base: the choice of more than 500,000 households in the last ten years.
This success is rooted in 35 years of expertise: since 1981, its winning features have kept on improving, so that Ducato is now a true trendsetter, produced in over 10 thousand variants and sold in more than 80 countries across the world. A global model and a reference for its class.
The Ducato camper base was designed and developed together with the top camper producers in Europe, in order to achieve the best integrated solutions for both base and living pod.
