Discover the Bürstner Lyseo Gallery TD 689 Harmony Line


Two years ago, Bürstner introduced its Gallery model, initially as a prototype, but the production version followed just a year later. Its full name, Lyseo Gallery TD Harmony Line, is a bit of a mouthful but let’s break that down...

Lyseo is Bürstner’s range of bread and butter models, offering low-profiles, many with drop-down beds (as implied by the TD label), and A-classes. Then, there’s the Harmony Line, which refers to an enhanced ‘all-inclusive’ specification.

So the Gallery refers to the one of most innovative and unusual features we’ve seen on a motorhome in a long time. Bürstner took a look at the traditional pop-top and elevated it, not only in terms of luxury but technology, too.

Press a button in what looks like a fairly conventional motorhome and the foremost roof section over the cab rises. It only takes 90 seconds to raise the overcab with the aid of compressed air and a specially developed chamber system – this is a whole lot more sophisticated than a conventional pop-top! When elevated, the vehicle becomes 3.70m high, but Bürstner has thoroughly tested its Gallery roof – in temperatures from minus 30 to plus 80 degrees Celsius, as well as with snow 1.5m deep and in winds of up to 120km/h.

Inside reveals a spacious overcab bedroom, accessed by a true staircase that’s even illuminated, as well as incorporating additional storage.

Roof aside, the Gallery adopts the high spec of other Harmony Line models with a contemporary exterior and diamond quilted upholstery inside. Of course, it has Bürstner’s Thermo-Floor, too, to ensure all-season comfort on board.

The 689 G is one of two models in the range, both of which are under 7m in length. Here, the layout features an L-shaped settee up front along with twin swivel cab seats. The central kitchen, backing onto the lounge, is also L-shaped, with a tall, 142-litre fridge opposite. Then, across the rear, is a full-width washroom with separate shower and giant wardrobe, under which is the garage.
