New 2022 Knaus Caravans
Launching the new 2022 Knaus Caravans under their slogan “New Horizons”, Knaus presents their future of caravanning and the highlights for 2022 by taking the next decisive steps forward.
The highlights of model year 2022 include many new equipment options:
Thanks to the new silwyREADY kit, glasses and containers of all kinds remain securely in place, even while driving – whether upside down, on their side or the right way up. That’s because the self-adhesive silwy pads are metallic, so silwy containers with a magnet in their base won’t rattle, slip or fall over. Plus, all sorts of silwyREADY accessories – from spice jars to cocktail glasses – can be found in the fan shop of Knaus Tabbert, as well as in the online shop of silwy.
Water filter from bluuwater (AS STANDARD)
The new bluuwater water filter removes almost all germs, bacteria and small particles (99.999%) from your water. The replaceable filter cartridge, with a highly efficient ultrafiltration membrane, has a filter capacity of up to 8,000 litres, and the remaining useful life can be checked at any time thanks to a time strip indicator.
The electric innovation: ePOWER
ePOWER is the next level of electromobility.
Newcomers to camping in particular often have problems with the complexity of the vehicle technology, and are wary of touching gas bottles and equipment. New and familiar, modern electrical appliances are extremely energy efficient and the perfect solution to meet the needs of seasonal campers and newcomers. An induction hob is therefore intuitive to use and many campers will already be familiar with them from home.
Unique in the industry, ePOWER is equipped with intelligent electronics and a choice of fuse protection (6 A/10 A/16 A), which controls and prioritises all the electrical appliances in the vehicle. Depending on the fuse protection that’s available at the campsite and which vehicle features are needed, the hob, lighting or heating/air conditioning etc. is prioritised – the smart control unit takes care of everything and adjusts the power distribution accordingly so that it doesn’t “blow” the fuse at the campsite.
As many campers are seasonal campers, who mainly hit the roads between Easter and October, it’s important for many of them that their vehicle is equipped with air conditioning. A combined heating and air conditioning unit with heat pump technology ensures that the temperature inside the vehicle is always pleasant in summer, spring or autumn. With a capacity of 98 or 150 litres (depending on the model), an energy-saving compressor refrigerator will keep everything you need for your holiday nice and fresh
Fully electric Knaus caravans
Now available as a fully electric ePOWER model in the UK is the KNAUS SPORT 500 FU. Adjusted for differences in equipment levels, this model is an impressive 50 kg lighter than the gas version. As a result, this layout also features an extensive range of special equipment: 17" aluminium rims, side walls in smooth sheet metal, a support wheel with weight indicator, a mobile 25-litre waste water tank, ambient lighting, extra 230 V and USB sockets, an insect screen door, a smoke detector, a bluuwater water filter, a rollable slatted frame for single beds, a COZY HOME package and much, much more. Needless to say, this KNAUS SPORT 500 FU layout is still also available with gas as standard.
The new 2022 KNAUS SPORT
The 2022 Knaus Sport is truly a very unique and versatile caravan classic, whether you’re an experienced caravanner, seasoned holidaymaker or a complete beginner. The 2022 Knaus Sport makes unforgettable, relaxed holidays for those on their own or for the whole family.
Its appeal starts with the new exterior and interior design, plus silver-grey graphics with the KNAUS swing element.

A Bluetooth sound system that can be connected to mobile devices, USB 3.0 sockets on each gooseneck light, three side windows if you opt for the triple bunk bed, and a luxurious shower for the 500 KD and 580 QS layouts are available on request. All compact layouts up to and including the 500 bodywork length are equipped with the Truma Vario Heat heating system as standard. This creates even more space in the wardrobes than ever before.
Thanks to the intelligent lightweight designs, which are inspired by structures that can be found in nature, the new SPORT looks even better and more impressive, but weighs exactly the same. The range of layouts has also been adapted to offer all campers, from singletons to whole families, the perfect layout: the 650 FDK and 650 UFK are new, but they are joined by the ten gas-free layouts mentioned above, as well as the 540 FDK, 540 UE and 580 QS.
The new 2022 KNAUS SPORT 650 FDK
A new addition to the spacious, Knaus family layout models is the Knaus Sport 650 FDK. This new layout features a French bed stationed lengthwise in the bow with a bathroom right next to it. A very convenient addition is the separate sink, so there’s no more frustration, waiting around for someone to vacate the bathroom in the morning.
There’s also masses of space in the centre of the vehicle for large family provisions and kit, together with a large, family-sized 177-litre fridge, featuring a very practical double-door stop. You’ll also find plenty of space for all your holiday clothes and equipment in the large wardrobe and various, convenient, storage compartments. Then, when it’s time to eat, there’s a large dinette opposite the kitchen.
To emphasise the space on offer in the 2022 Knaus Sport 650 FDK, you’ll find an additional seating area plus a bunk bed, positioned lengthwise in the rear. It provides the little ones with their own area, which can also be partitioned off using the textile room divider.
With the 2022 Knaus Sport 650 FDK, Knaus have made available some very special layout and equipment options such as the optional multifunctional 3-bed‐bunk bed, which also features three side windows. By utilising the folding function of the middle bed, this bed then turns into a backrest, which then makes a great small play area for children. Alternatively, by folding up the lower bed, you’ll have a large storage area which can be accessed from inside or outside. Another family-friendly option is the large garage door, making it possible for the family bikes bicycles to be transported easily and securely.
The new 2022 KNAUS SUDWIND
With its unique, trend-setting design, the new 2022 Knaus Sudwind is setting new standards for the industry. The ‘60 Years’ anniversary model incorporates so much more equipment than before at an amazingly attractive price. The gas‐free E.POWER packages for 2022, also provide even greater optimised functionality and equipment. With an amazing 16 different layouts to choose from, there will definitely be something for everyone.
The iconic ‘Sudwind’ caravan has always impressed massively, both internally and externally but the latest ’60 Years’ version takes this to a whole new level. With the FoldXPand‐Heck, black and silver-grey graphics incorporating Knaus swing element, dark-framed side-wall windows incorporating the Sudwind logo and the Pro.Tec‐Frame, it delivers a much more modern, eye-catching design. The furniture is beautifully made using cross-laminated wood and with off-white wall cabinet fronts plus redesigned entrance furniture incorporating indirect lighting, the look, feel and ambience is one of modern luxury.
The KNAUS SUDWIND 650 FSK 60 YEARS
Celebrating 60 successful years, the Knaus Sudwind 650 FSK continues the Knaus Sudwind success story. Sudwind has been leading the market and breaking new ground for almost 60 years with new levels of equipment, innovation and design and this 60 Year anniversary model goes many steps further.
Knaus created the Sudwind 650 FSK to accommodate families, with ample space for adults and children thanks to its well-considered floor plan. The ‘adults’ area is located in the bow of the caravan and features a french bed, stationed lengthwise, with a spacious bathroom and convenient, separate sink positioned right next to it.
The middle section of the caravan has ample space for everyone, which has created a relaxing, spacious salon seating area. Opposite this you’ll find the well-equipped kitchen with a large, family-size 177-litre fridge, which also features a very practical double-door stop.
In the rear you’ll find the "children's bedroom", incorporating a bunk bed, situated lengthwise and an additional, separate seating area. Knaus have provided the option of a multifunctional triple-bunk bed. By folding up the middle or lower bunks, it adapts to a child's seat or an extra, large storage space. This triple-bunk bed option can also include three side windows and the parent’s area can be separated from the children's area using a textile room divider.
Another great option is to add a large garage door incorporating a framed window with darkening and insect screen, allowing safe transportation of larger items such as the family bicycles. Storage is also catered for with many storage compartments for a family’s holiday equipment and the large wardrobe provides plenty of space for everyone’s clothes.
The 2022 KNAUS SPORT & FUN
Named “the practical one” this dynamic ‘lifestyle load master’ combines the best of both worlds. Knaus Caravans have managed to incorporate progressive design with and an unbelievable amount of space for those action and adrenaline-filled getaways. It has a rear door opening, to allow for bikes-in plus storage of camping equipment into the huge bow compartment.
When Knaus Caravans developed the SPORT&FUN, they really thought of everything for customers requiring more active holidays. It incorporates an easy-access, 920mm wide rear door, roof rails, a huge garage at the front, an optional and versatile height-adjustable bed, roof-loading for up to 75kg, together with a sporty, striking design.

The 2022 KNAUS DESEO
Designed and built to transport just about any adventure toy you wish, the Deseo is the perfect balance between heavy-lifter and comfortable living space. With its uniguely-designed large flap tailgate and stable access ramp, loading the vehicle is made extremely easy. Whether it’s motorbikes, wind surfers, microlites, paragliders, surf boards or skis, the Deseo can transport it and at the same time, provide the perfect balance with high comfort living spaces.
After arriving at its destination, the Deseo turns into a comfortable, fully‐equipped caravan. A deceiving roomy space-saver with lots of nooks and crannies. There is so much room, it’s challenging to know how to use it. Home-from-home features include a fitted kitchen with hob, sink and 60l fridge. Then there’s the Truma gas heating to keep you warm and cosy in the evening. Blinds and flyscreens fitted on every window and front-mounted gas bottle locker are all standard.
The four-berth, fibre-framed Deseo is constructed with automotive-industry A, B and C pillars for increased structural strength. This means it can incorporate a drop-down double bed, and riding on a twin-axle chassis, a massive payload of 800kg.
