German manufacturer Knaus Tabbert has announced details of the redesigned VAN i A-class motorhome. The two new layouts 580 MK and 650 MEG were created to maximise the use of available space. Together with the already existing layouts 550 MD and 600 MG they offer a new room design, premium quality interior and intelligent features.
