Westfalia relies on Eberspaecher heating solutions in its new James Cook

19 September 2019

– Two Eberspaecher heaters built into the fourth-generation James Cook

– Hydronic S3 Economy as standard

– Plugtronic electrical heater available as an optional add-on

Esslingen, 19 September 2019Campervan manufacturer Westfalia has chosen to use Eberspaecher’s high-performance and reliable heating systems in the latest iteration of its James Cook model. The fourth-generation camper is equipped with Hydronic S3 Economy as standard. The Plugtronic electrical heating system can also be added as part of the optional Westfalia 4-Season Comfort Package.

Whether it’s a sudden shift in weather conditions in the mountains or the first cool late summer nights: For the implementation of a comfortable heating concept in the new James Cook, Westfalia relies on two components from the Esslingen-based climate control experts. The Hydronic S3 Economy Diesel heater, which is controlled via CI-BUS, forms the basis of this heating design. For trips to colder regions, the James Cook can be fitted with the optional Westfalia 4-Season Comfort Package, which includes the Plugtronic electrical heater. This heater can help keep your camping nights extra quiet: When the engine is not running, the heater can be plugged into a power grid (230V) – at a campground during the night, for example – to provide completely silent heating of the vehicle thanks to its electrical operation.
