The MAN Bus Modification Center (BMC) have transformed a Neoplan Tourliner into a mobile home “that leaves nothing to be desired”, as MAN states: “A dream on wheels”. The high-decker has been transformed into a luxurious mobile home. “We are giving travelling in comfort a whole new meaning.”
With features such as a duvet instead of a sleeping mat and a luxury kitchen instead of a gas stove. “We have designed and built the interior of the vehicle specifically to meet individual customer requirements, covering everything from how the space is arranged to the lighting”, says Heinz Kiess, Head of Sales & Marketing at the BMC. “On entering the luxury mobile home, we pass through the driver’s cab to be greeted by a spacious corner seating area consisting of four comfortable chairs, a table and a bench. The living area flows through to the large kitchen. With its premium fixtures and fittings, the kitchen is a comfortable place to both cook and live – featuring an induction hob and modern oven along with base units and wall-mounted cupboards that provide plenty of storage space”, Kiess explains. “The subtle white cupboard fronts contrast with the natural wood finish of the work surfaces and wall-mounted units to really catch the eye. Passengers can quite rightly also expect to enjoy comfort in the bedroom, where two cosy beds ensure they will sleep well. It is here in particular that you forget you’re actually on a coach”, says Kiess. “Alongside its washbasin and toilet, the bathroom has ambient lighting and a shower featuring a glass door and side panels made from mineral plastic.”
The coach is equipped with three 5 kW power inverters, four lithium-ion batteries, a battery management system, a powerful alternator, WiFi, the BirdView camera system, a satellite system and a storage compartment for skis. A fresh water tank with a capacity of 920 litres and a grey water tank with a capacity of 520 litres have been built specifically to cater for water supply requirements on board.
