Why is Derubis different from others?
The importance of details emerges everywhere. Timeless design. Comfortable, extremely stylish, with balanced proportions, carefully selected materials and accessories. Nothing is left to chance; we have made the most of every square centimeter. The interiors can be customized by mix and matching both the colors of the furniture and those of the fabrics.
CREATING LUXURIOUS, SAFE AND COMFORTABLE CARAVANS REQUIRES TIME, KNOW-HOW AND CAREFULLY SELECTED PREMIUM MATERIALS.
Greater value over time means investing more time in the production of caravans. We take care of every detail, spending about 10 times longer than traditional paneled campers. But how is a Derubis Caravan camper born? Why did we choose to produce it in a different way than the alternatives on the market and what does this mean in terms of greater quality, comfort and durability? Let’s find out here step by step:
The Derubis monocoque, made entirely of fiberglass and insulated with polyurethane foam without any joints, is produced using a HAND LAY-UP process. Manual lamination is a technique in which the laminate is progressively composed through the sequential arrangement of all the sheets that characterize the final lay-up. The design, planning, and realization of the mockup and ultimately of the mold are meticulously carried out in the Derubis manufacturing plant.
The chassis is first prepared and fitted. The fluid tanks are housed between the two chassis side members. The water and heating pipes are prepared together with the tanks. The monocoque, complete with floor is then installed on the AL-KO chassis.

Fiberglass is an extremely resistant, elastic and light material. This great elasticity eliminates the risk of hail damage and confers rigidity, protection and durability over time to the entire living cell. Furthermore, unlike metal, fiberglass is not a thermal conductor. A body made of metal or that contains metal parts cannot retain heat inside, it is naturally conducted to the colder outside – consequently it cannot guarantee good internal thermal comfort. The fiberglass monocoque, on the other hand, is a sandwich structure made exclusively of fiberglass and polyurethane foam.
Once the inside of the fiberglass monocoque is heated, there is no dispersion / exchange of heat from the inside to the outside – the heat remains inside. The thermal comfort is unparalleled and the savings in terms of consumption are evident.
