Lyseo is a name that discerning Kiwis will be getting to know as it’s just been launched as part of the 2017 showcase for European motorhome manufacturer, Bürstner.

SmartRV had a ringside seat at the unveiling, sending sales leader Samantha Kidson and marketing & projects manager Teearn Falconer to the annual dealer conference at Bürstner’s head office in Kehl, Germany.

"It’s exciting to be among the first in the world to get an exclusive look at the new Lyseo range," enthuses Samantha. "As we’ve come to expect from Bürstner, they’re brimming with new features and in another first, the range includes both fully- and semi-integrated models."

The new Lyseo range is made up of three vehicle types: the Lyseo T, Lyseo A, and Lyseo E. Only the T will be launched this year.

The new features include a broader exterior, a more spacious interior (L-shaped kitchen with greater work surface, larger group seating in the living area), and an ergonomic bathroom (shower basin without step, more height in the shower and no wheel arches).

"A change I liked was the functional double flooring," says Teearn. "The cab and the living area are all on one level inside the vehicle – with no steps and more floor storage."

The Lyseo range offers layouts with or without a drop-down bed, meaning the same motorhome can be configured as a two or four berth. "They’ve even come up with a floor plan with a rear lounge which Kiwis will love."

The dealer conference also signalled how Bürstner is simplifying its ranges so customers can easily see the product and price difference among the various vehicles.

SmartRV managing director John Managh says having Samantha and Teearn at the dealer conference is fantastic.

"They’re seeing the new Lyseo motorhomes before anyone else in New Zealand. The SmartRV team will be fired up to really show these vehicles off when they hit our shores."
