It’s a generation thing Introducing the new generation of Tribute motorhomes – conceived to offer you the best of everything you’ve come to expect from Tribute – the same layouts, but with an added focus on practicality and comfort. Two van conversions and five coachbuilts mean there’s a choice to suit every generation, whether it be a family, or a couple who have finally got the time to explore, with space to take the grandchildren along every now and again. All of our models have an improved build and drive – for the first time, we have specified the new 2015 Fiat Ducato chassis across the entire range – this brings an amazing range of standard features, and several extras that we’ve requested, to reach the level of specification we felt our Tribute customers deserved. Read on to discover more about each model, how it’s built and what it’s like to drive and live in. You won’t believe how much has been packed in to such a competitively priced range of motorhomes – making motorhoming accessible

Enjoy the freedom – just get in and go!

620

From the compact van conversions, through to the 720, a Tribute will suit your adventure needs perfectly. All are drivable on a standard driving licence. The 669 and 670 are so compact and perfectly formed, they can be used as an everyday runaround for trips to the supermarket, but perfect if you just feel like carrying on driving and escaping for a few days. The coachbuilt motorhomes offer all of the space and home comforts you need to make even the most spontaneous of trips a pleasure.

There’s nothing like eating outdoors Motorhomes are called that for a reason – they should give you the freedom to explore when and where you want, whilst not making daytime living difficult. All Tribute models feature a full sized electric oven/grill and gas burners. The van conversions come with two gas burners. The hob and adjoining sink include fold down glass covers, creating a handy food preparation area.

620 kitchen

The coachbuilt models have three gas burners and stainless steel sinks with hinged glass covers and handy lever mixer tap. Whatever the layout, there is ample storage space, with a combination of cupboards and overhead lockers, as well as cutlery drawers with push bu#on lockable handles and large refrigerator with removable freezer compartment. The brand new worktop finishes blend in with the rest of the vehicle’s stylish interior. Once dinner’s been easily prepared, eat inside or out – all coachbuilt models come with fold away tables, tucked neatly away in their own slimline cupboard, and LED awning lights, so you can enjoy the outdoors.

Sleep under the stars in total comfort After a long day exploring, there’s nothing like se#ling down for a good night’s sleep and the Tribute offers a broad range of beds – foldaway, bunks, pull-outs and fixed – with plenty of storage space to hide the bedding away during the day. The 669 can sleep up to four adults on the double bunk beds across the rear of the van, whilst the 670 sleeps two, by quickly transforming the rear seating area into a spacious double bed. With storage pockets, upper and lower cupboard space, dimmable LED lighting and individual

reading lights, we’ve thought of everything to give you much more than anyone would expect in such a compact motorhome. The coachbuilt models can sleep up to six adults – many of our customers opt for the Hi-Line profile, keeping their double bed ‘upstairs’ in the Luton area and out of the way, leaving the living area undisturbed at night. The bed easily slides away to create more headroom during the day. However, the 715 includes a fixed double bed, but can sleep four more with the front bed conversion and Hi-Line bed option. With sprung slat beds, window blinds and fully adjustable mood lighting, we’ve made sure comfort is a priority – sweet dreams!

A true home from home As well as looking great on the outside, every Tribute motorhome feels great on the inside too. With comfortable seating, contemporary upholstery and soft furnishings, pleated blinds and blown air heating throughout, there’s absolutely no need to compromise on comfort. Aosta Cherry wood veneer is used throughout the coachbuilts, and the lighter Natural Beech on the vans – creating bright and airy spaces. Under seat storage, wardrobes, lockable drawers and soft close overhead lockers mean there’s a place for everything, so you’ll have no problem keeping your motorhome tidy. The new swivelling Captain’s chairs easily become part of the living area seating, whilst fold away tables create flexible dining areas. Time for socialising or time for bed – the multi-controlled LED strip lighting and directional spotlights help create the right ambience throughout the motorhome, so everyone can feel right at home.

All the comforts of home A key aspect of living comfortably when away from home, is having the use of proper bathroom facilities. That is why every Tribute model features a washroom with washbasin, shower and 12v flushable toilet, which comes with a removable pull along casse#e. They all have a handy cupboard and large mirror, as well as opening windows and blown air heating vents, which aid ventilation. The 669 & 670 are a wet room design, with shower tray in the floor. The washbasin slides along above the toilet, to create more room for showering and there is a full surround curtain, to stop the water going where you don’t want it to. All coachbuilts have en-suite washrooms – featuring walk-in shower units with closing screens, so the whole bathroom doesn’t get wet. Talking of ge#ing wet, if the weather takes a turn for the worse, there’s a handy hanging rail inside the shower unit to hang up your wet clothes.

The Fiat Ducato – born to be a motorhome We’ve been building our luxury motorhomes on the SEVEL chassis for almost 13 years and for 2015 we’ve decided to concentrate solely on Ducato-based production. It’s not a decision we reached lightly – we’ve tested and researched into everything available including competitors’ new models. Our conclusion was that the Ducato is, quite simply, both the best available and by far the most desirable. The new generation Ducato was ahead of the game and now the newly re-engineered generation is even be#er, with the safest, most comfortable drive and highest spec ever seen from Fiat. Take a test drive at your local Tribute dealer – we’re sure you’ll agree with our conclusion that it’s the market leader by a country mile.

The facts… • Fiat has the largest dedicated development team focussing solely on motorhomes • Fiat Ducato is built in Atessa at the largest and most high-tech commercial vehicle factory in the world • Fiat has over 600 motorhome-specific base vehicle derivatives. All are based on what converters at home and abroad have requested as a direct result of customer feedback • Fiat underpins over 500,000 motorhomes currently on the road and has a dominant market share • In its class, only the Ducato offers automatic transmission on all UK engine options

Technical specifications The specification of all Tribute models has been drastically enhanced by us choosing the new generation Fiat Ducato chassis as the base for all of our vehicles. We also requested additional features, such as cup holders, USB ports, mobile holder and new Captain’s chairs with twin armrests in all cab areas. The chassis is also wide track on all coachbuilt models, offering increased stability. Why not complete your driving experience with the Driver’s Pack, featuring ESC and Traction Plus, for an extra-safe drive? *ESC, featuring hill hold – please note, hill hold activates on 5% incline or over **Traction Plus, including hill descent – please note, activates up to 30kph

The content of this publication is as accurate as possible from the information available at the time of going to press (September 2014).

New Ducato MY 14 Hill-Holder function: The “Hill-holder” is provided together with the ESC. This content does not affect safety, but rather comfort, helping the driver with hill starts. The device, by combining the information from dedicated sensors (on pedal unit, gearbox and Powertrain Control Module), automatically provides the braking torque necessary to keep the vehicle stationary on a slope, without the driver holding down the brake pedal. The system automatically disengages after 2.5 seconds, or when the driver, releasing the clutch and accelerating, requests the engine torque required for se#ing off. Hill Holder system: This system is an integral part of the ESC system and facilitates starting on slopes. It is automatically activated in the following conditions: • uphill: vehicle stationary on a road with a gradient higher than 5%, engine running, brake pressed and gearbox in neutral or gear (other than reverse) engaged • downhill: vehicle stationary on a road with a gradient higher than 5%, engine running, brake pressed and reverse gear engaged. When se#ing off, the ESC system control unit maintains the braking pressure on the wheels until the torque necessary for starting is reached, or in any case for a maximum of 2 seconds, allowing your right foot to be moved easily from the brake pedal to the accelerator. When two seconds have elapsed, without starting, the system is automatically deactivated, gradually releasing the braking pressure. During this release stage, the typical brake disengagement noise indicating that the vehicle is going to move imminently will be heard. IMPORTANT: The Hill Holder system is not a parking brake; therefore, never leave the vehicle without having engaged the handbrake, turned the engine off and engaged first gear, so that it is parked in safe conditions.
