A dynamic duo of Knaus Live i motorhomes at our Veron depot

A dynamic duo has arrived here in Veron – a brace of 2020 model Knaus Live i’s

March 11, 2020

Wow! We have not seen the Knaus Live i fully integrated motorhomes since they took our breath away at the 2019 Knaus dealer convention.

We wrote about them shortly after that and they have been selling well ever since. Quite simply, any of our clients who went to see them at the European motorhome shows last autumn bought one. Now we have one here for the rest of the summer so if you want to be seduced, come and see it.

If you decide to come, do make an appointment though as our demonstrator has a starring role at a few European events this spring, summer and autumn so you’ll need to come when she is between engagements.

Our 650 demonstrator has the same beds as the 700 but we opted for the kit which converts it to a huge double bed with short, central access ladder

The kitchen on the 650 is a little smaller than the one on the 700 but it is still very spacious with everything you need including a big fridge freezer

These two are the first to be delivered from the factory and now we have been able to spend quality time with both models, we are even more impressed with this exceptionally well-priced pair. We have tried to capture some shots which show off their many assets and illustrate the differences between the two.

In both the 650 MEG (our demonstrator model) and the 700 MEG (a customer vehicle which is about to set off on a European tour) there are many excellent common features which our photos will show. The driver and passenger cabin is so spacious and comfortable, with the silky-smooth 9-speed automatic gearbox, I’m genuinely worried we’ll forget we are driving and start watching a film or deal a hand of cards en-route!

With a little extra space in the 700 Live i, there is room to add this gorgeous cast iron hob top

Don’t buy one of these motorhomes if you ever plan to travel in a van conversion or semi-integrated motorhome again. There is no going back and you’ll be spoiled forever if you own a fully integrated model.

The 2020 models are already sold out but Knaus tells us the 2021 models are available from October this year. There will be very minor (if any) changes to the 2021 model (you cannot improve on perfection) and Knaus are forecasting only a small price increase of 3% or less. We will know more after the dealer launch in June when the 2021 models will be revealed. In the meantime, if you’d like a 2021 model, you can secure one now with a 10% deposit and finalise the full specifications after the June dealer launch.

We might be persuaded to sell our 2020 demonstrator (the 650 MEG) in October too so if you are planning an autumn trip start and fancy buying the best value fully integrated motorhome ever made, fitted with many great extras, get in touch now.
