I would imagine if like all the other companies seem to do, if it starts leaking once they stop making them, you will have problems getting parts to fix it, looks good though a little cramped due to the staircase.

Looks a bit daft to me. I always preferred the Luton layout, not sure why they seem to have gone out of fashion with the low profile seeming to be the preferred option. What I like about ours is I just put some hardboard in it and store a couple of folding mountain bikes and other stuff up there which balances the weight distribution nicely with the scooter on the back. I have the loading off to a fine art now. My concern with a low profile or A class even with a bike hanging off the back is all the weight would end up at the back. Long wheelbase Alko chassis helps of course.

I think the effect of the wind on a Luton was my reason for not liking them, handy for junk of course, but we would never sleep up there, I wonder what the Burstner top tent thingy will be like in a good strong wind, you might end up sleeping outside

For me I think it looks absolutely awful and as Kev said the thought of owning one in the future would not be a thought to cherish, the lift up part is via inflatable membranes, I know the technology for such is pretty good (inflatable SUP boards etc.) but I'd doubt it will be a feature adopted by many companie and I'd guess soon dropped by Burstner.
Any one remember the last groundbreaking innovation by Burstner? the Grand Panorama I920G with a windscreen to challenge the Crystal Palace, can't believe they sold too many of those and certainly didn't offer them for very long.
My guess is this idea will fall by the wayside.

Having loved our drop down bed in our old Hymer I would consider this if we were younger. It was the ladder that did it for Chris's knees in the Hymer. You still have the problem of climbing over one another (stop it!) on the way to the toilet at night though. I presume you can leave the bed made up when you collapse it?

Personally I dislike Lutons period.!

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.
