Evolving living module for freedom

Musica slide-on offers great versatility

Have your say

FORGET those monster caravans and motorhomes, more and more travellers are turning to a more compact form of RV, according to a NSW company.

Campbelltown-based Bonetti Campers reports overwhelming interest in its new Italian-built Musica slide-on which it says offers a versatility unmatched in other types of recreational vehicle.

"I am very confident that substantial sales will be generated," company boss Stefano Bonetti told Caravanning News. "The positive feedback we have received is stronger than we have experienced with other products."

The company described the monocoque Musica, built by Mondo Pickup, as "an evolving living module for everyone who loves the freedom of itinerant tourism".

"Many experienced campers don't want to travel anymore with long caravans and big motorhomes," Mr Bonetti said.

Musica interior"They are tending to get back to smaller units that allow them an easy drive, to park in every car park space, enjoy good fuel economy and the ability to go 4WD driving. Our system offers all these things."

The module detaches from the truck with a few simple steps and rises on its internal legs, allowing owners to use their vehicle for day to day transport or touring.

It is fully insulated against heat and cold and superior in strength and flexibility.

The company said the revolutionary design, complete with bathroom, was able to offer "the comfort of a grand hotel suite room for a couple" but had storage compartments and living space suitable for a family of up to four.

The kitchen has ample drawers and cupboards, a two-burner stove, sink and a convenient compressor refrigerator with freezer compartment.

The Musica has an anti-vibration system, and hooking and unhooking to the pick-up is facilitated by a system of four self-centering conical pins with an electromechanical locking system.

Aluminum legs are activated using the wireless remote control.

The Musica sells for around $75,000, with an extra $5000 for upgraded suspension and anti-vibration mounts.
