MMM Motorhome Awards 2024: Best Motorhome Innovation

Welcome to the MMM Motorhome Awards 2024, delivered in association with Creation Personal Finance.

The Best Motorhome Innovation award is given to the motorhome that has the most impressive new designs and features, as selected by our expert panel of judges. They were looking for designs that not only catch the eye but deliver a genuinely significant improvement to the motorhoming experience.

We are delighted to reveal the 2024 winner and two highly commended runners-up!

Why the Bürstner Lyseo TD Lounge?

A year ago, Bürstner very nearly took this award for its Lyseo TD Gallery − the low-profile motorhome with the incredible inflatable overcab bedroom, reached by a real staircase. Originally just a concept vehicle, such was customer interest that the Gallery is now part of Bürstner’s model range, so we’re rather hoping that it’s the same outcome with the company’s latest innovative project.

At this year’s Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf, Bürstner revealed the Lyseo TD Lounge, with a push-out mechanism that creates a completely new interior ambience, thanks to the extra 65cm of width available in the motorhome. The Lounge is a 3,500kg vehicle that measures a modest 6.99m in overall length and its pure two-berth layout looks almost as if it was developed with UK customers in mind.

Reinventing motorhomes

“With our Lounge, we have reinterpreted the concept of ‘Travel small, live large’, and elevated it to the next level. Our new living room on four wheels [is] a vision of unparalleled spaciousness,” says Chairman of the Bürstner Management Board, Jens Kromer.

The concept vehicle’s highlight feature is an innovative mechanism for creating more space by pushing out the lounge’s sofa and side wall sideways. But, while the idea may evoke thoughts of bus-sized American RVs, the Lounge takes materials and technology from the expanding overcab of the Lyseo TD Gallery, which is already in production.

Thanks to a sliding table that can be stowed away and an innovative pull-out sofa bed, the concept model’s lounge easily converts into a bedroom. A sideboard with a pop-up TV positioned opposite the bed ensures that you can also binge-watch your favourite soaps from under the duvet.

Top-of-the-range layout

The rest of the Lounge’s layout is based on the popular Lyseo TD 684 G Harmony Line, with its across-the-rear washroom/changing room and a garage beneath its vast wardrobe.

Bürstner says the Lounge concept offers maximum utilisation of the available space without any compromises in terms of comfort, as well as a multifunctional approach. Customer feedback will be assessed before the model is considered for production, possibly for the 2025 model year.

In the meantime, we can only guess at the likely price tag, should the Lounge get the green light, but somewhere between the TD 684 mentioned above (£90,590) and the Gallery (at £104,990) would be our estimation.
