Michelin markets its CrossClimate Camping, a unique all-season tire on the market. It has been specially designed for RV users to enable them to overcome all weather conditions during their travels.
To develop the CrossClimate Campingthe engineers of the Michelin Research & Development Center, have put all the problems that motorhomes face.. One of the most encountered concerns users who drive little and leave their own immobilized vehicle sometimes for long months, especially during the winter season. Without moving regularly, the tires can be deformed by the weight of the vehicle, with a distribution of the masses sometimes not ideal depending on the location of the reserves of fuel, water, gas cylinders without forgetting the battery (or batteries).
Much work has therefore been done on the carcass identified by a CP markinglike the Michelin Agilis Camping summer tires already on the market for some years as original equipment.
His reinforced hips materialized by slabs on the sides, guarantee a better resistance to road damage (holes, curbs) e prolonged parking . They are also appreciated, steering wheel in hand, to improve vehicle handling when fully loaded. CrossClimate Camping is visually distinguished by its tread. This uses a V-shaped design, called Michelin V-Shaped Technology. It is inspired by the Michelin Agilis Alpin winter tire. It is therefore perfectly suited for use in all seasons. Furthermore, the new tire is based on a compound that offers a good abrasion resistancethanks to its technology directly inspired by that of truck tires.
