Swedish documentary demonstrates RV crash testing results

Listen to this story

From the writers at Autoblog:

In Sweden, the amount of newly registered motorhomes has increased by 50 percent since 2014, according to the Swedish Transport Administration, or Trafikverket.

With the surge of new wheels on the road have come more injuries and deaths. This prompted Trafikverket to put a magnifying glass to the safety standards of motorhomes and execute its own crash tests with two different European-market RVs.

For the tests, Trafikverket used the same methods the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) uses. Both motorhomes were built on a platform that Trafikverket says underpins 84 percent of that market’s motorhomes. Thus, the tests are largely representative of most motorhomes on the road.
