Essential Guide to 2020 motorhomes - Bürstner motorhomes

Bürstner Lyseo M Harmony Line T 660

The Lyseo M Harmony Line (to give it its full title) is the most significant addition to the 2020 Bürstner portfolio as the ‘M’ stands for Mercedes. It’s a simple range of two models, with a choice of T 660 (French bed, shown here) or T 690 G with fixed twin beds over a garage. Both are offered in 3,500kg form or uprated to 3,880kg for those with an appropriate licence and the desire for extra payload.

Likewise, a 143bhp motor is standard, with 163bhp and/or Mercedes’ excellent automatic transmission as options. More importantly, it’s worth noting that Bürstner has selected the rear-wheel drive derivative of the new Sprinter for its Lyseo M.

It’s been quite a while since Bürstner offered a motorhome wearing the hallowed three-pointed star and probably nearly as long since a French bed layout took such a prominent position in the line-up. The constructor from Kehl hasn’t just dusted off old plans, however, but introduced some new thinking to the format. For a start, an angled wardrobe at the foot of the bed eases access for the sleeper on the wall side.

And more importantly, perhaps, the new T 660 has a Maxi-Flexo washroom that incorporates a swing wall to create a huge (1.15m by 0.78m) shower cubicle. Finally, the French bed itself boasts a 2m mattress length for those who’ve been on the rack.

Of course, at a whisker under 7m, the Lyseo M is also more compact than many rivals with island bed floorplans, while at the same time offering surprisingly generous floor space around the galley and the foot of the bed.

UK spec includes an oven-grill as well as the 142-litre fridge-freezer, while a drop-down double bed up front is an option. Also, the majority of popular base vehicle options have been grouped into packs, with the Multimedia Pack and Chassis Pack included as standard for the UK.

Base vehicle: Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
Layout: French bed
Berths: 2-5

Bürstner Lyseo Harmony Line TD 744

Introduced three years ago, the Lyseo TD Harmony Line was seen as a unique combination of mid-range pricing and a low-profile motorhome with a technical double floor.

Now, the time has come for a facelift, with new hybrid rear road lights, new interior lighting, a redesigned galley with clever rotating worktop extension, a new oven (some models), bedrooms with Vario blinds and details such as magnetic drinking glasses with their own storage shelf near the entrance.

Another novelty is Bürstner’s portable ‘Home Light’ with a built-in charging station and battery life of up to eight hours.

To all this, the TD 744 model adds a layout that’s particularly in tune with UK tastes. Its star feature is the rear lounge but there’s also a second seating area (with seatbelts) up front, as well as the possibility of electric drop-down beds over both the forward and rear lounge areas.

SPECIFICATION

Price from: £66,995 OTR
Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato

Berths: 2-5
Travel seats: 4

Bürstner Lyseo Time Limited T 727 G
 

The new Time T Limited range replaces the Edition 30 line-up for 2020, but with more equipment – and prices below the TD Harmony Line.

The Limited models come with a silver cab, 16in alloy wheels, an awning with integrated LED lighting, special décor and Lighting and Kitchen Packs. There’s no double floor for these vehicles but the floor level is step-free from the cab back.

Three layouts make up this new range, with this T 727 G model offering fixed single beds over a garage in an overall length of 7.41m. Base vehicle is the Fiat Ducato with 120bhp Euro 6d engine and 3,500kg gross weight.

The lounge in this layout features the en vogue side settees and a fold-in-half tabletop for an open-plan feel, while slot-in backrests convert the sofas into travel seats. The kitchen includes a generous 142-litre fridge-freezer, while an XL habitation door eases entry to the vehicle.
