Perhaps you are asking yourself... what is Caravanas Cruz doing at a boat show? And why a Phoenix vehicle and not another?

Well, first of all, let us tell you that the world of caravanning is closely related to the nautical world. It could be said that caravans, motorhomes, campervans and boats are almost the same concept, but one by land and the other by sea.

The way they are distributed, materials, concepts, ideas and operation are very similar.

Having said that, we are going to give you a brief outline so that you can get to know both companies a little better.

The Barcelona Boat Show was founded in 1963 with the aim of promoting the nautical sports and recreational boating industry in Spain, and to encourage enthusiasm for water sports.

After the success of this first edition, which took place within the framework of the popular Feria de Muestras, it was agreed that the fair should become an annual monographic event. In 1965 it acquired international status and, over the years, its development and importance have continued to grow, reaching its 60th edition this year.

A long journey, full of effort and work well done, which has resulted in making this show one of the ten most important in the world.

And Phoenix?

Phoenix Reisemobile was founded in 1997. It is a family business, whose founding master carpenter, Johannes Schell, has more than 22 years of experience in the development and construction of motorhomes. Together with his son Oliver, master carpenter and business economist, they make the perfect tandem to lead this company, whose philosophy is pride in craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology, which makes every Phoenix motorhome that leaves the factory unique in the world.

Phoenix vehicles are built like a conventional house, from the outside in. This means that they forego the "ease" of a simpler reverse assembly, but achieve a longevity, stability and quality that you won't find in any mass manufacturer. Each Phoenix motorhome is individually handcrafted by a team of professionals who are passionate about the best craftsmanship, learned over generations and supported by the most modern and cutting-edge technology.


Caravanas Cruz is the link that Phoenix Reisemobile has with Spain. And we have thought of taking a "flagship" of this prestigious German brand to the Barcelona Boat Show.

We will be at the 60th edition of the Barcelona Boat Show from Wednesday 12th October until Sunday 16th. You can find us at stand F-675.

There we will show you the impressive Maxi Liner L8900 BM-MB.

Mounted on an IVECO chassis, with a 210 hp engine, rear-wheel drive, ZF automatic transmission and automatic integral suspension.

Its bodywork, exterior and interior, is made of thick aluminium, which gives it exceptional thermal protection in low temperatures.

Thanks to the manufacturer's unique handcrafted sealing, the vehicle is guaranteed watertight for 10 years.

In addition, inside you can immerse yourself in its high quality finishes and design, such as its upholstery made of grain leather (the most natural and exquisite leather that has received virtually no additional treatment and has a magnificent aging, gaining even more beauty over the years).

Noble woods, warm and comfortable spaces; all the comforts of a conventional house, such as its ceramic nautical toilet with macerator, and configured with the maximum Premium equipment, which makes this house on wheels the perfect place to enjoy travelling the world.

If you want to see this marvel in person, do not hesitate to visit us.

Remember, the appointment is at the 60th edition of the Barcelona Boat Show.

Caravanas Cruz and Phoenix will be there to welcome you.
