    We are just on the point of ordering our first motorhome. We have been looking around for some time and find that the Burstner Nexxo T720 ticks all the boxes. We are going to purchase new. We initially plan to use the van for weekends and holidays with a view to retire/semi-retire in the next 5 years and travel long term throughout Europe. By this time, likely to be living aboard most of the time. Does anyone have experience of this particular van? Comments welcome before we take the plunge!

    We have the Burstner Nexxo t720 - bought new in 2014. It has two single beds with a washroom at the rear. We were after a motorhome with a level floor and there is just one step to the dining area.
    People say when you have fixed beds you lose relaxing space but..................we have the best of both worlds. The single beds have a deckchair type system which reclines the beds so that we can relax after lunch and watch tv and snooze (like old people do). Not a lot of kitchen worktop but a good size table when it's extended. The fridge and freezer is enormous but probably wouldn't have bothered with the oven and grill because I have to stand on a stool to see how the cooking is going:eek:

    We don't have a garage so we don't carry too much extra stuff which keeps the payload down. When we went on the weighbridge fully loaded we had about 85kg spare which is not a great deal - the equivalent of that third person we could sleep as it is a three-berth (four seat belts) model.

    Any more information you need, ask away.

    A further point - make sure the dealer includes a reversing camera - there are no windows in the back.

    If it's not a silly question, how did you go about getting to use a weighbridge? Or did you know someone with access to one.
    Would be interested to get ours weighed when we get it and loaded.

    Thanks for your response Pamela. Did you have an oven and grill installed in the space above the fridge/freezer? We were considering a microwave in this space.

    I must say, we have been a bit concerned about the payload. Do you carry bikes?

    Thanks, Neil

    In the Search box above type in 'weighbridge' Lots of information there.

    I think we just googled weighbridges and found a few local firms.

    Hi,
    We are collecting our new T720 on Friday. Can't wait. We love the twin singles and rear washroom. Lounge space will be fine for the two of us. It's a great van and I'm sure you won't be disappointed

    We are on our second T660 in five years and thinking about another one. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Ours weights 3000kg with half a tank of diesel but no water. Lots of factories and scrap yards have a weight bridge at the entrance, there's usually not a problem or charge if you drive on and ask them for the weight.
