The unique technology of the alto


The Alto combines lightweight, aerodynamics and durability. Your car will love taking off with it.

Underneath the Alto:

Its independent Flexiride suspension and very low centre of gravity provide great stability to the Alto. Its floor and frame are made of aluminium. For maximum aerodynamics, the weld-free frame supports a streamlined tank. Powerful electric brakes come as standard equipment.

A Green Travel Trailer:

Faced with the steady increase in the price of gasoline and the social responsibility we all share to save non-renewable fossil energy, Safari Condo wanted to design ultra-light caravans with the lowest possible drag coefficient. Caravans meeting these two criteria could then be readily towed by smaller vehicles. Even more environmentally conscious, Safari Condo also wanted its materials selection to be not only lightweight but for the most part recyclable.


Roof and walls are made of a sandwich-type material with a plastic honeycomb core laminated with aluminium on one side and Alufiber or aluminium on the other. Alufiber combines the lightweight of aluminium with the durability of fiberglass. The only materials used in building the Alto are those on which water has little effect such as aluminium, Alufiber, plastic, Formica and glass. Inside, the furniture consists largely of aluminium and composite materials. Rigid and ultra-light sandwich panels are integrated into the bed cushions, while the entire bed structure is made of aluminium extrusions.

R Series (retractable roof)

1  Retractable seamless aluminium roof
2  Tinted tempered glass crescent
3  Aluminium frame and floor.
4  Adjustable suspension height from 2,12 m to 2,15 m
5  75% less aerodynamic drag.

A Functional Approach:
With an exterior height of only 2, 12 m with the roof down, all R-series Alto models fit easily in your garage. With the roof up, they offer a very comfortable living space with an 2, 08 m interior clearance. Their front dining area is usable even with the rear bed deployed. Beds, fridge, storage and toilet are all usable even with the roof down. You can create two different dining areas by simply moving the table.

Retractable Roof:
The seamless aluminium roof is built in a single piece of curved Alufiber/aluminium sandwich panel. It is opened and closed by a pair of electric linear actuators. Its crescent-shaped windows are tinted tempered glass. With the retractable roof down, the aerodynamic shape of the Alto, developed in a virtual wind tunnel, creates 75% less aerodynamic drag than a traditional travel trailer. This factor, along with its lightweight, makes the Alto readily towable by most compact cars and small SUVs.
