Ex-Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher and the premium Slovenian campervan manufacturer Robeta have designed a new and limited-edition luxury campervan – the Schumacher edition. Unveiled a few days ago at the world’s biggest caravan show in Dusseldorf, it attracted a huge buzz both in the media as well as among true campervan aficionados. We are proud that our second-generation Nereide control panel is equipping the 5-ton Sprinter, which comes at a whopping €279,000.
While negotiating the terms of our collaboration, Robeta clearly showed us the direction they wanted this special vehicle to pursue: “This new model’s interior and exterior design are to pursue the absolute top of the line in premium yacht technology, equipped to the nines with a revolutionary electronics system.” And they were true to their word, delivering an extraordinary product.
The campervan’s foundation is the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter s 190 KM, which boasts a sporty look despite its 7 meters of length. The Schumacher Edition is outfitted with all the assistance systems that Mercedes offers, taken to the next level with an extra solar generator system.
An Interior That Takes Your Breath Away
The Schumacher Edition isn’t just a technical masterpiece. Its extraordinary class and elegance is also shown in its breathtaking interior. All the furniture, crafted from only the finest materials, reminds passengers more of a luxury yacht than a mere campervan.
Black Kerrock dominates the kitchen – a material with all the beauty of marble but a fraction of the weight. Warm wood trim, gleaming white fabric, and the bright floor’s reflection in the Kerrock create a vivid contrast and a truly special ambiance.
The kitchen provides everything a wandering foodie could desire: an induction stove, a spacious fridge with separate freezer, microwave oven, and even a dishwasher. As the legend himself was a connoisseur of fine wines, the Schumacher Edition just had to feature a glassed-out wine rack.
All the Comfort of Home in Just a Few Square Meters
The bathroom, located in the campervan’s aft section, boasts a glass shower cabin, impressive black sink, and a huge, backlit mirror.
And what about the bed? It’s cleverly hidden in the campervan’s ceiling, just waiting for the owner to lower it down over the seating at the touch of a button. The back wall is outfitted with a reflective black surface, which elegantly serves to give the illusion of more space.
Robeta really outdid themselves with their expertise and creativity in the Schumacher edition. Hats off!
