Laika presents its new Kreos

For the 2022 season, Laika presents a completely revamped Kreos low-profile motorhome – one of its most iconic and beloved Laika models: a synonym for elegance, power and high technology.

The new range is represented by the Kreos L 5009, a low-profile model with an overall length of 799 cm and equipped with rear twin beds and an L-shaped dinette.

It features the Fiat AL-KO heavy chassis provides driving comfort, solidity and safety, and an elegant opening fibreglass dome with maxi Skyview (116 x 73.5 cm) to allow plenty of natural light and fresh air and is fully insulated. To ensure strength and stability the one-piece rear wall and roof are also made of fibreglass. The assembly of the body with direct wall-to-roof and wall-to-floor connection gives Kreos a linear and harmonious look, but above all excellent insulation and very high mechanical resistance.

Good insulation can really make a difference: the new Kreos was designed to accompany the most demanding travellers wherever they want to go and whatever the weather. The self-supporting body is made of three layers (aluminium/XPS/aluminium) with increased thickness (40 mm). Roof and under floor also consist of three layers: fibreglass/XPS/aluminium. This guarantees maximum insulation and the freedom to enjoy life in your motorhome without worrying too much about the weather or the climate outside.

The new, thicker side doors have thermal break frames to prevent heat loss. The double through-floor with a useful height of 25 cm serves both as insulation – acting as a thermal chamber – and as stowage space: it is easily accessed through the convenient hatches in the main floor and through two side hatches on the right and left of the living area, so that everything is within easy reach.

The water heating is distributed evenly in all areas of the vehicle. The freedom to experience motorhomes in comfortable, light clothes in any season without feeling cold is priceless! In addition, the thermostatic control is independent for the rear room, so you can sleep at the ideal temperature without wasting energy.

Everything is under control on board, thanks to the latest-generation electrical system with CI-Bus technology: networking and control, for example, of lighting, air conditioning, battery charging, etc. The wiring is located in the double floor, allowing easy installation and repair. The battery compartment is inside the double floor and easily accessible (also lithium battery system-ready). The electrical system components are grouped together in the dedicated and protected technical compartment in the rear garage: everything is tidy and easy to manage. In addition, maximum water autonomy is guaranteed by the tanks inside the double floor (drinking water tank 210 l and recovery tank 150 l), with an oversized water pump and expansion tank.

Even the smallest comforts contribute to making a motorhome the best travelling companion. Little daily luxuries that make us feel like kings and queens of our four-wheeled home. On the new low-profile Kreos, the XL Premium plus living unit door (192 x 60 cm) with window is equipped with a 3-point safety lock, insect screen and central locking with remote control. The electrically operated external maxi step (70 cm) allows you to get on the vehicle comfortably. For the more sporty and those who don’t want to give up their passions on holiday, it has never been easier to take their bicycles, beach umbrellas and sports equipment with them, thanks to the maxi garage (218 x 129 x 124.8 cm) with symmetrical side doors (120 x 100 cm) opening upwards, with a thermal break frame, integrated hinges and security locks. In addition, the garage is illuminated and heated, with non-slip floor, equipped with light switches on both sides, sockets and with 250 kg payload. There is plenty of room for everything! Wine lovers will appreciate the private wine cellar in the garage (optional), a compartment in which to store the finest bottles. A true luxury, only for connoisseurs!

The interior has been designed in every detail to create a spacious, airy and bright environment. In addition to the panoramic opening Skyview, the new Kreos is equipped with an electric opening sunroof (96 x 65.5 cm), which can also be used while driving (optional as an alternative to the drop-down bed). Plenty of natural light and fresh air to make the most of every space. Sophisticated design and furniture lovers will not be disappointed: the furniture has a unique touch of class, with real wood doors for a sophisticated yet natural feel inside the room. The living room is a room to share: it can accommodate up to 7 people during stopovers, also thanks to the new system of converting the seats in the direction of travel, to create an additional seat in the dinette. Eating with friends around the elegant round table will have a special flavour. The entire space is designed for relaxation, perhaps in front of the 32″ TV (optional) with electrically operated movement system visible from both the drop-down bed and the living room: maximum comfort, just like in a real suite!

The Kreos L 5009 kitchen is redesigned to combine elegance and practicality. The worktop, which is also available in high-quality Corian (optional), is equipped with a double sink. The gas oven is standard, as is the portlight and the 153 l maxi refrigerator with AES system and convenient door that can be opened from the living area and the rear. In the kitchen of the new Kreos, nothing is left to chance: the matt black tap with flexible arm (optional) makes it easy to wash vegetables, fruit, plates and everything else you need, just like at home! A true Master Chef’s corner with a choice of 3 types of kitchens: Standard, Grand Chef (with integrated gas oven and grill), or Standard with optional dishwasher. And last, for those who don’t want to miss out on a good cup of coffee or espresso, even (and especially) on holiday, an optional coffee machine holder in Corian is available, to start every day on the right foot, enjoying your favourite coffee.

The large designer shower enclosure has a wood-look floor, double shower head, wellness shower column (optional), lighting and shelves. Thanks to the smart design of the space, the bathroom can be converted into a single large room that is separate from the rest of the vehicle, allowing users to enjoy a moment of privacy in comfort. Every detail is elegantly finished, such as the large mirrored surfaces and the matt black tap (available as an optional extra): a true spa for moments of well-being!

The sleep area of the new Kreos L 5009 is equipped with two large rear twin beds (200 x 80 cm) with an adjustable headboard and perimeter heating: even when it’s cold outside, this room is as warm and cosy. For those who prefer to sleep with their partner, the two beds can be converted into a large double bed (199.6 x 206 cm). In addition, the beds are equipped with a high-comfort spring suspension system.

The double wardrobe allows you to hang your clothes or store your shoes neatly and conveniently. An additional, optionally available wardrobe with pull-out compartments is useful for storing even more clothes, all with automatic interior lighting.

Additional guests? No problem at all: the optional front drop-down bed (140 cm wide), electrically operated and integrated into the ceiling, can comfortably accommodate your travel companions.

Laika dedicates the new Kreos to those who love to travel in freedom, to those who love elegance and design, to those who have a technological soul but cannot give up the magic of a warm and welcoming environment. A travel icon restyled in its core and aesthetics, to satisfy not only experienced motorhome owner but also new travellers, accompanying them to their next destination.
