So as I’m preparing to sell my current motorhome, Rayquaza, I stopped at the motorhome show in Dusseldorf on the way to the UK. It’s an insanely big event (the world’s largest motorhome show) but exceptionally well organised.
I went to see the dealer who is selling me the new motorhome and also, to physically see a model similar to the one I’m buying, as I’ve never actually seen it in person.
I was not disappointed. Wow, this is going to be one massive upgrade. Everything feels just so fresh, new and spacious!
This is the size of the garage! I’m sitting in it and it still has a ton of space. What is especially good is that it has two big doors on either side.
I was concerned the two beds at the back might be too small as individual beds, but they are not, I tried them!
I really like the fact I can sleep like this and not require a ladder to get up and down.
The new motorhome (a Burstner Ixeo 728) is a “integrated” model meaning the front is as wide as the body. I was a bit worried about the new steering position but I tried it out and wow, this thing is going to be a dream to drive!
I also went to see some suppliers of solar and lithium and got some ideas on how to always have 230v available, and I’m going to see if I can squeeze this into the destroyed budget.
Exciting times ahead!
