    Yes, we collected ours in December 15. Compact and bijou! Drop down bed is super comfortable. Cab seats are fabulous, particularly as we have the heated seat option. To suit varying family needs over the years with children and grandchildren, we've gone from a Compass Navigator Motorhome to Abbey Spectrum 570 twin axle caravan to Hymer Motorhome, all of which we have enjoyed for various reasons. Two years ago we made a major mistake and bought a new Swift Elegance caravan (lumps appearing in the floor over only four nights of use - that's another story) that went back and we were refunded our money. So after being put off buying anything for a further 18 months and really enjoying our holidays on our motorbike (BMW GS Adventure) we decided that, hopefully, a small Motorhome with a trailer to tow our motorbike would perhaps satisfy our needs over the next few years. So when we saw the Burstner Ixeo time 590 sovereign it ticked a lot of boxes, large fridge freezer, oven, fixed bed (electric drop down), separate shower, leather upholstery, grade 3 insulation, reversing camera, sat nav all under 6 metres etc etc etc we felt it would do the job!
    We have wild camped in it on Dartmoor, Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia in minus 3 degrees!
    Obviously there are compromises with the space and storage, but being used to travelling very light on the motorbike, this is quite luxurious!!!
    We have ordered the trailer to carry the bike, but that will not arrive until mid May and at the end of May we are planning to go to France and Spain for the sun and great biking roads! So we will find out if we have done the right thing by the end of June! Fingers crossed!!!!!

    Hi Silverg,
    Thanks for replying! We bought our first MH 5 years ago, an Elddis 115, also under 6m, had it for 4 years and loved it!!, decided a year ago to upgrade and bought a new Bailey Autograph 540, Big mistake!! had a really big problem with the electric bed being SO noisy when travelling!! never really got fixed! At the show in Glasgow a few weeks ago fell in love with the 590!! say layout but done so much better!! Bailey has gone back (Took at ££ hit!! :-( ) and waiting for new 590 :)

    Have you had a towbar fitted? if so, where, which type and how much? (If you don't mind me asking!!)

    We did France, Belgium and of course Scotland in our Elddis/Bailey, just loved it!! You must do the NC500 in Scotland, with the bike!!! :) (My son has a 2000 K1200RS :) )

    Hi Noggin
    We are sure you will love the 590! We ordered the tow bar as an optional extra when we ordered the motorhome so don't know what type and can't remember the additional cost (will try and find the paperwork when have a free moment(?) and let you know), we bought it from Chelston Motorhomes in Wellington, so it was all done when we collected it. We have a tow bar mounted bicycle rack for when not towing and when towing the trailer with the motorbike, we will also put the bicycles in the trailer.

    We did a quick tour in 2013 around Scotland in the Hymer but didn't have the bike with us, but kept saying what fantastic roads for biking on (found the same in Wales!) so, with a bit of luck we can revisit with the bike next time!

    When do you collect it? (y)

    Don't know yet!! its is an April build so hopefully end of or May!! (...................seems ages away!!....)
    More questions! :) are the lights all led? how do you fill up the water, I have had a cap with a hose connection and then a Whale "block" connector
    The 590 has just a cap!! we now use an "X hose" which would be hard to just hold and let fill! (Thinking about getting a spare cap and fitting a hose connection in it. What size gas cylinders do you use? I have two Calorlite but thinking of changing one for a 11kg and keeping the 6kg Calorlite at the front to use for our new Cadac :)

    Hey Abforfun
    This looks a terrific find, very attractive, much nicer colour than ours and you have an oven with a grill! (We have no grill in ours) - Tec tower with separate freezer aswell, congratulations, it looks fabulous.
    We are sure you will enjoy it - we were out for the day in ours today with two of our granddaughters aged 6 and 3 - on Dartmoor, they were climbing rocks and falling in the river, then straight inside to dry off and have hot soup, that's the benefit of a smaller Motorhome, you can take it almost anywhere with ease and the facilities are wonderful.
    Yours looks lovely, we will give you a wave when we see you, ITS SO EXCITING ! Only seven sleeps until you collect it! ENJOY ! Do post your thoughts on it once you have collected her, do you have a name for it yet?????
    Paul and Nene

    Well just been and had another look at our camper getting little excited now.Been trying to sort a table as the Burstner table to far to large the reason being it drops to form another double bed
    1 of the sales guys showed us a smaller table he had in stock slightly marked on the corner which we could'nt notice so he's fitting that and we think it will be a lot better

    Can well understand your excitement! Collection day will soon be here!
    We have read that quite a few Burstner owners have changed the table for a smaller one. We actually like the fact that the table is quite large, the space is great for working on, have a social meal with several people and for playing board games with the granddaughters! It is very manoeuvrable so isn't in the way when going from the cab to the kitchen and beyond either.
    Do let us all know how you get on when you collect her.

    We do leave the bedding on, Pillows carefully placed lengthways accommodating the 'hump' shape!
    When we are not away, we leave the bed down about a foot so as to have air movement around the bed and bedding.

    Enjoy!
