What type of people buy Niesmann+Bischoff motorhomes?
Niesmann are popular for people who want to travel all year round because of the levels of winterisation within the vehicle.
It seems that a great deal of our Niesmann customers will enjoy skiing. The last customers always go to Val d’Isere for an extended period over Christmas and the campsite’s right next to the train that takes you to the top of the resort so that’s fantastic.
Which heating systems are fitted to Niesmann+Bischoff motorhomes?
The standard is the Truma, blown-air heating system, which is very good, but because of Niesmann’s famous connection with insulation most people choose for the upgraded Alde warm water heating system, which is standard on the larger Arto motorhomes and also standard on the Flair model.
What goes into the testing of Niesmann+Bischoff motorhomes?
Niesmann have always done some extreme testing with their vehicles, they use cold chambers in the production and the design in the early stages but they also carry out some extensive winter testing in countries, in Germany and in Sweden. They have a very big customer base in the Scandinavian countries, a large percentage of their production goes that way, amd so it’s very important to be testing in those exact places.
How does their construction system help keep these motorhomes warm?
The sidewall construction, which is an aluminium sandwiched with a very high quality Styrofoam insert panel, the insulation properties of that construction are by far the best in the industry.
They have a very deep double floor with all of the tanks internal within the double floor, and all the radiator pipework of the Alde warm water system run through the double floor.
Electric thermo-heated blind for the windscreen, which is one of Niesmann’s signature features, which blocks out any loss of heat or cool from the front windscreen. There are double-paned glass cab windows, which again is very rare in our industry, for added insulation.
There are also no cold bridges where the floor and roof meet the sidewalls, and with the furniture not being fully attached to the sidewall, it allows for the flow of warmth circulating around the vehicle.
What is the Alde heat exchanger?
The Alde heat exchanger allows the cabin to be heated whilst travelling, and this basically allows the piping of the Alde warm water system to be run through the engine, so you have a warm vehicle when you’re travelling and also when you arrive on site you’ve already got 30-litres of piping hot water.
Something that we’d look at would be the dual-pane cab windows and the thermal blind at the front of the vehicle, so that once you’ve arrived you maintain that heat for longer.
Does the construction help keep the motorhome cool in the summer?
These features are as beneficial during the summer months keeping the cool in as they are in the winter months keeping the cool out.
In Spain or maybe Italy or Morocco or wherever they end up, it can be maybe 40-50 degrees so the owners that have used them abroad say that they are remarkably cool and relaxing in those temperatures.
