    Helloooooooo
    Unfortunately mine is the older original Exsis but I think it's the best ever but maybe I'm biased.

    We've got a 2012 562i, which due to the loss of my C1 was bought mainly for it's payload. The main disadvantage from our point of view is the narrow width makes interior space cramped (to us), although there have been a few occasions when it's been a distinct advantage on the road. The other factor, and bear in mind ours is a 2012, is that it very much seems built down to a price.

    We have a 2015 Exsis i698 it’s a great van with lots of payload and slightly narrower than the B class Hymer ours is on AL-KO maxi chassis 4250 kg with the 150 bhp engine plenty of power to tow a car trailer, had it from new imported from Germany LHD.
    We love it and have now got it kitted out to make it ours,have traveled from bottom to top of Europe in it without problems.

    We had a 2014 i678 for nearly 3 years, only changed because we got such a good deal. Overall pleased with it, biggest criticism was the position of the water tank behind the rear axle which meant we were always on the limit on the rear axle, didn't help because of the small water tank, only 100 Lt we carried an extra 40 litres in the garage.
    Generally we were pleased with build quality, like all Hymers no timber in the construction (apart from inner wall boards) & GRP floor. The narrow width was great for driving as we have habit of getting stuck in hill top villages. Cleverly designed, don't notice the narrower width inside, reasonable amount of storage although you do lose the storage space under the lounge seat to the heater.
    I see Travel world have a 2016 one but for that price you could buy one of the nice new redesigned ones in Belgium or Germany for less.

    We do love our Burstner but we fancy an A class. We'll see what happens.
    Enjoy your lunch. X :D

    I have to agree with you, Nicola and I like the idea of an A class and will no doubt choose one as our next MH. The only issue for us is that the Ixeo 680g ticks so many boxes in size, layout & space it’s going to be hard time finding a replacement when the time comes.

    Good luck on Friday and keep us posted(y)

    Yes we know the Ixeo does tick all the boxes but we feel the time is right to go to A class and it is either Hymer or Rapido
    Looked at the New Ixeo A class and it is not a patch on the 680 and it felt that Burstner had down graded the interior fittings to launch at a price and everything about it felt wrong.
    So roll on Friday

    Nope, that is the old model for similar or not much more you can get the new model which has the same front end as the Dynamic Line, aluminium internal walls, new cabinet work, bigger garage and new rear end, also plastic headlamps that are a fraction of the price of the Almond eyes and they didn't increase the price makes it not worth buying the old model.

    If the new Exsis had been out when we ordered our Dynamic line we would have probably gone for one as they are almost as good as the Dynamic Line apart from it doesn't have a double floor and still has a small water tank a bit bigger at 115 Lt. No problem with rear axle loading if you go for the Maxi Chassis at 4.2t or 4.5t.

    New model

    I wouldn't want to pay too much for an old model, although the prices are holding up well at the moment the changes are so significant with the totaly diffent construction method I reckon the old model prices will start dropping of in a couple of years.
