Laika's 'Points of Strength'

The Reasons Why You Might choose a Laika

Laika are very passionate in their belief that they build a better motorcaravan than most manufacturers.

Here at Southdowns we agree with them. They do.

Laika call these differences, the things that separate them from the ordinary motorhome builders, their Points of Strength. Here they are:

100% Italian Design.

Owning a Laika motorhome means having a “different” motorhome with a unique personality and an unmistakable style.

45-Year Experience.

LAIKA is 45 years old. The design and manufacturing of its products now show the experience resulting from many years of study and work.

Use Of High-Resistance And Quality Materials.

Laika carefully tests all materials used for manufacturing its vehicles. The producers of these materials have to comply with high quality standards in order to become Laika suppliers.

New And Convenient Solutions.

Laika strives to always provide highly convenient solutions. Some of these may not necessarily be detected at first sight; they can be thoroughly appreciated only when using the motorhome, such as the independent light switches and a home-like kitchen.

Unrivalled Insulation Of The Living Quarters.

The thickness of the walls, floor and roof, the type of insulating material (Styrofoam) and its density make all Laika vehicles suitable for use in the winter. For holidays that last all year round.

Heated Water Tanks In An Anti-Freeze Position.

The Laika water tanks - for both clear and waste water - are heated.

Domestic Type Water System.

With high quality, stiff polybuthylene pipes and fittings and 40 mm diameter drain pipes with siphons.

Marine Style Roof Upholstery, With Insulating Effect.

The roof of the Rexosline, Kreos and Ecovip motorcaravans is covered with a special marine style material, with anti-stain treatment and insulating effect.

Double Floor.

A double floor area in a portion of the vehicle allows the creation of very practical under-floor storage compartments with lighting, accessible from both sides (Ecovip range and Kreos coachbuilts).

Many Customizing Possibilities:

Versatile Equipments In Order To Adjust The Motorhome To Different Travelling Situations.

Laika offers the possibility of selecting some fittings to adjust the motorhome to the type of equipment you want to travel with or to your travelling companions. For example, the electrically-adjustable rear bed (available on some models only) or the width extension device of the drop-down bed.

Numerous Provisions For The Installation Of Accessories

Laika vehicles have been designed with a large number of standard provisions to allow you to easily customise your vehicle. The Kreos coachbuilts and the Ecovip range vehicles are equipped with an electric box on the roof which enables one to install electric accessories with ease.


A Laika already possesses as standard everything necessary for a unique holiday, but it is also fitted with provisions to accommodate a broad range of customised Laika accessories. Ask your dealer for the list of all the Laika accessories available and enjoy customising your new vehicle. Please note: the installation of accessories can reduce your loading capacity.
