Design and technology derived from the new MICHELIN Agilis van tyre range.
A reinforced construction using two casing plies enables the use of higher inflation pressures.
A tread pattern with 30%* more sipes and 20%* more grooves, combined with a rubber compound capable of operating over a wide temperature range, provides sufficient grip for occasional use in difficult conditions.
Michelin has launched the new Agilis Camping tyre – currently the only motorcaravan tyre on the market with an M+S marking – as part of the new Michelin Agilis range for medium and heavy vans.
The Michelin Agilis Camping provides motorcaravan drivers with the same benefits as the Agilis van range: long tread life, enhanced safety performance and reduced fuel consumption. Reduced fuel consumption means reduced CO2 emissions which, when coupled with 20% more mileage than its predecessor means this is one of the greenest tyres available to those who enjoy the great outdoors.
The tyre’s three other main features are longevity, robustness and versatility.
It owes its longevity to the Durable Contact Patch, derived from the new Michelin Agilis which enables a useful life that extends over several seasons. Developed initially for truck tyres, Durable Contact Patch technology increases tyre life by optimising the tyre’s footprint.
The tyre’s robustness results from its reinforced, dual-casing architecture that allows for higher tyre pressure, and protected sidewalls. Each sidewall features eight protective shields that increase curb impact resistance.
Its versatility comes from the tread pattern and the rubber compound. The tread includes 30% more sipes and a 20% higher void ratio than the Michelin Agilis van tyres. The rubber compound delivers superior performance in a wide range of temperature conditions, ensuring optimal grip when occasionally used in mud or snow, on dirt tracks or in other difficult driving conditions. These rubber compounds also maintain superior grip, even when worn, and reduce wet braking distances by 3m compared to its predecessor.
The European motorcaravan market is very dynamic, with an 8% growth of sales in 2006. Moreover, between 1995 and 2005 the yearly growth of sales in the motorcaravan market was more than 9.5%, Michelin has now produced a tyre that is set to satisfy this growing market.
All sizes in the Michelin Agilis Camping range display the CP marking, indicating that they are certified for use on motorcaravans. This CP marking is provided by ETRTO (European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization) and it is specifically created for tyres capable of resisting occasionally severe driving conditions. The reinforced design of this tyre allows higher tyre pressure than the standard van tyre of the same size: 5.5 bar on the rear drive axlle.

Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the
lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel
efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres.
Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can
keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
