At the heart of the Citroen Holidays camper van kitchen is a generous 150mm deep sink, large enough for washing dishes, vegetables, or hands with ease. Beneath the sink are recessed gas burners, precisely positioned to be protected but also accessible for safe cooking. The two burners allow cooking multiple items simultaneously on a portable gas cylinder. Controls are integrated on the front panel for convenience. The kitchen is fully equipped to serve the needs of campers, from meal preparation to cleanup.

It has a 16-liter fridge

Keeping food and beverages cold while enjoying outdoor adventures is made possible thanks to the Citroen Holidays camper van’s 16-liter compressor refrigerator. The fridge offers ample chilled storage for camping trips of all durations. It is integrated behind cabinet panels on the right side of the kitchen space for an invisible appearance that maximizes usable space. The rectangular fridge fit perfectly in the recess provided. The integrated design complements the van’s practical interior layout.

The kitchen has a retractable table

A key highlight of the Citroen Holidays camper van kitchen is its versatile retractable table. The table smoothly slides out of a storage cubby on drawer-like rails when needed. The extended position, provides a stable workspace to prepare or enjoy meals. Materials and construction are durable enough for frequent use. When camping or cooking is over, the table easily stores back into its niche with a push, freeing up valuable floor space. It serves as both a prep surface and dining table as required, adding invaluable flexibility to the living area.

The front seats can swivel to increase living space

For optimum use of interior space, the Citroen Holidays camper van features front seats that pivot 180 degrees to face the living area. Once parked, the driver and front passenger seats rotate with a simple push, expanding the available floor area. This allows for more flexibility in arranging furniture or creating additional sleeping quarters. The swiveling function combined with a sliding rear bench creates multiple dynamic layout options to suit any situation. Users have full control over the interior ambiance and configurations for different activities from the comfort of homes.

It has two sliding side doors

Access and ventilation in the Citroen Holidays camper van are handled by a pair of wide sliding side doors. The driver-side door is fixed, while the passenger side can be opened and closed easily with one hand for convenience. Both doors provide ample portal views to the outside and allow easy entry and exit. The extra-large opening created by the dual doors also facilitates the loading and unloading of cargo or camping gear. Natural light and cross breezes are maximized through the lateral openings, key for holidaymakers. Overall the dual side doors boost practicality.

The side doors can be electric

For those seeking an enhanced experience, the Citroen Holidays camper van offers an optional electrically operated sliding door on the passenger side. The electric mechanism provides push-button opening and closing with a single touch. This saves physical effort especially when hands are full. The electric function is also useful for anyone with limited mobility. Sensors intelligently detect obstacles to prevent pinching or injury. The electric option is an example of Citroen’s application of thoughtfully selected technology for optimizing camper van usability.

The roof is retractable and body-colored

One highlight of the Citroen Holidays camper van is its sunroof design. The entire roof section is retractable thanks to a sophisticated multi-part sliding system. When open, the roof retracts completely behind the rear roofline, reconfiguring the interior dimensions. Made from body-colored panels, the retracted roof is near-invisible for seamless integration. Passengers can stand freely and benefit from unobstructed views of the sky. It creates an interior volume more akin to a coachbuilt motorhome rather than a basic shuttle van. The expansive sunroof aids ventilation too on warm days.

The roof provides ample headroom

Retracting the entire roof of the Citroen Holidays camper van yields significant gains in interior headroom and sense of space. Users can comfortably stand at their full height inside the van with the see-through sunroof panels slid entirely open. Fresh air circulates freely throughout the living quarters. The effect is quite unlike conventional vans or campervans with limited pop-top roof extensions. Citroen’s innovative full-retraction design optimizes interior volume to a level more akin to much larger recreational vehicles. Passengers appreciate the feeling of an open-top experience even while stationary.

You can stand inside with the roof open

One of the stand-out features of the Citroen Holidays camper van is the ability to open the full roof and stand inside with ease. Unlike traditional pop-top roofs, the entire sliding section retracts fully away without obstructions. This allows an adult to comfortably move around the interior in an upright position, whether preparing food or hanging up clothing. Children also benefit from the spacious Headroom. When combined with the rear side-access doors, the effect is of an open-air concept rather than a conventional van interior. Even activities like yoga or morning exercises are possible thanks to the voluminous interior space achieved with the open design.

There is a second-row bench that seats 2

Conveniently located behind the front seats is a second-row bench, easily seating two additional passengers. The long bench takes advantage of every inch of interior length. Padded seating offers comfort comparable to armchairs. Second-row occupants benefit from plentiful legroom as well as pleasant views out large side windows. The multipart bench also breaks down rapidly into a makeshift bed when required via its folding mechanism system. Two or three people can sleep comfortably thanks to its sensible dimensions. Overall storage is maximized with a sliding form-fitted design.

The second-row bench is sliding and converts to a bed

Passengers appreciate the sliding and reconfigurable second-row bench. It easily slides toward the rear on low-friction runners, shortening the cabin for agility while loading or making more foot space accessible. More importantly, its multi-section backrest, seat base, and leg support panel fold down in a coordinated manner to form an abundant sleeping platform. Strong gas struts hold each piece rigidly in place while driving but rapidly transform the entire bench into an accommodating lower bed. The integrated slats distribute weight evenly for a restful night’s sleep.

The converted bench bed is 1.15m wide and 1.9m long

When transformed into an overnight sleeping arrangement, the second-row bench of the Citroen Holidays camper van provides dimensions well suited to adult comfort. Its effective sleeping surface measures a generous 1.15m in width to cradle one or two average-built sleepers side by side. Length extends almost the full depth of the interior at 1.9m, enough for all but the tallest individuals. Access is simple from both sides. In summary, the robust converted bench surface offers a private and restful night’s rest for shorter or weekend voyages away from home.

The bench can be removed for more interior space

On longer journeys or when extra cargo room is needed, the second-row bench can be efficiently dismounted from its slider rails.

The lower beds have a rear window opening

Sleeping comfort in the Citroen Holidays camper van is enhanced through its clever use of window openings. Both the lower forward-facing sleeping surface and rear-facing upper bed are graced with dedicated windows. This allows natural light and cross-ventilation to carry through the entire living quarters. Passengers sleeping below enjoy awakening to views of nature through large openings integrated into the camper bodywork. Vacuum-pack roller blinds provide full solar screening and privacy when desired without compromising the sense of openness.

The windows have vacuum blinds

Critical to user comfort are the specially designed vacuum roller blinds fitted to windows in the lower sleeping berths of the Citroen Holidays camper van. When drawn down, these advanced blinds form an absolute light-and-heat sealed barrier with the glass, regulating interior brightness with pinpoint accuracy. Raised, they disappear neatly into the headlining, maximizing light diffusion. No unsightly external screens clutter the outward appearance. Ventilation continues to flow while privacy remains. These high-performance blinds reflect meticulous development for optimizing living standards during holidays in the countryside.

The upper bed has integrated blinds and a window

Rear passengers using the upper fixed bed are treated to superb panoramic views through a dedicated observation window. Like below, vacuum roller blinds are neatly integrated to preserve interiors while channeling light. An ergonomic lip surrounds the window frame to safeguard against accidents at night. Proximity sensors intelligently illuminate step lighting along the upper access when movement is detected after dark for safety. Additional lockable storage underneath provides secure stowage, installing peace of mind during outdoor adventures at any time.

The table can be used for dining, working, cards, etc.

The reliable retractable table in the Citroen Holidays camper van caters to various activities beyond mealtimes. Large enough at 500mm by 450mm, it serves equally well as a portable desk or workspace on journeys. Kids enjoy sitting around it for games, puzzles, and art projects too. Even group card games find a suitable surface. In the evening, bottles of local wine or snacks can be arranged for casual get-togethers under the stars. With a tough yet lightweight top, the table balances capable usage with easy stowage versatility to suit all situations imaginable in campervan life.

The table can be stowed away to free up space

When not actively in use, the practical retractable table of the Citroen Holidays camper van smoothly vanishes back into its dedicated garage using minimal effort. Stowing the table opens up living space for other functions like standing, moving between areas, or lounging. Automatic return springs smoothly guide it home for flush integration with surrounding panels. A push is all that’s required to activate smooth travel back to the prepared storage bay. There it rests securely until next needed, maximizing flexible multipurpose use of interior floors and surfaces.

There are numerous storage spaces inside

Practical users will appreciate the robust built-in storage solutions integrated throughout the Citroen Holidays camper van living quarters. Cleverly designed cubbies, drawers, and overhead lockers stow away everything from kitchen equipment to bedding with ease. Water-resistant ABS lining enables dirty or damp items to dry rapidly. Flexible shelving trays organize small items, while integrated garment rails and hangers keep clothing wrinkle-free. Even bulky bed slats find dedicated garages. It’s the little touches that make holidaying on the move seamless.

It has a 10L tank for clean water

Located below the driver cab floor of the Citroen Holidays camper van is a 10-liter fresh water tank. This reservoir holds drinking water for personal hygiene and cooking needs while wild camping or touring remote regions far from taps. Access for filling and cleaning is through a lockable outdoor port with anti-leak fittings. An integrated pump and gauge help monitor remaining levels at all times. With economical consumption, the healthy 10L capacity keeps essentials flowing for several days away before requiring refill en route at commercial stations.

It has a 10L tank for wastewater

Waste convenience is managed discreetly via a 10L removable holding tank tucked under the passenger side floor. A central emptied shower or sink outlets directly here via self-contained plumbing. Surrounded by soundproofing, odors do not permeate living quarters. For emptying, the sealed tank detaches through an external hatch using no tools. A strap aids in lifting into portable dumping stations located throughout Europe. Simple regular flushes keep interiors fresh between disposals. Volume matches consumption for stress-free stays away from home comforts.

An optional shower can be installed at the rear

For those desiring self-contained washing while traveling, Citroen offers shower cubicles to equip the Citroen Holidays van. These are erect discreetly behind rear doors via a support pole. Thermostatic mixing valves supply hot/cold water flow safely. A drainage pull catches used water for the onboard holding tank. Shower curtains maintain a dry interior. Electric heating options warm the cubicle for comfort in cooler climes too. High-end models feature rainfall showerheads. It’s the epitome of on-tour independence and hygiene without public facilities.

Removable toilets can also be equipped

Frontier adventurers have the choice to add portable toilet installations for true off-grid autonomy in the rugged outdoors. Manufactured for resilience and easy maintenance, these self-contained units feature durable plastic casings. Waste is collected privately in removable cartridges. Some feature macerating functions for wilderness-legal remote deposits. Where regulations allow, disposables integrate permanently with plumbing access. Otherwise, toilets pack neatly on excursions.

Alternately, the system draws only nominal power from the leisure battery to maintain livable interiors even overnight with the engine off. Cabin thermostats perfectly regulate temperatures for health and comfort.

Lighting is controlled via a control panel

Purposeful LED lighting throughout the Citroen Holidays camper van cabins is regulated through an intuitive digital control panel. Conveniently located for both drivers and passengers, simple touch toggles activate ceiling and task illuminations independently in various hues. Dimming functions fine-tuning ambiance from utilitarian to relaxing. Reading lights target sleeping quarters. Controls also program external courtyards, steps, and access paths for navigating after dark with confidence. Wisely designing lighting schemes contributes greatly to holiday well-being and enjoyment far from home.

Ventilation and brightness can be easily managed

Climate wellness inside the Citroen Holidays is kept optimal through thoughtful ventilation integration. Moveable rear ceiling fans maintain airflow as desired in all weather. Pinch mount body vents circulate fresh breezes high and low. Manually opening side doors and expansive sunroof allow cross drafts on warm days too.

Micro-radar and camera sensors continuously monitor vehicle paths ahead, sounding warnings and gently applying brakes automatically if proximity closes dangerously with stationary or slower traffic unexpectedly. Elsewhere, Lane Departure Warning and Driver Alertness Monitoring encourage focus through gentle vibration alerts if fatigue is detected.
