Niesmann+Bischoff redefines premium motorhomes with 2023 Flair

For many, German brand Niesmann+Bischoff is seen as the gold standard when it comes to luxury motorhomes and premium liners. The company’s RVs make no compromises when it comes to quality, style and elegance – three things that its latest launch for 2023 has in abundance. Niesmann+Bischoff has revealed the latest iteration of its Flair premium liner, which it says takes interior design to a whole new level, as well as providing the kind of technological advances rarely seen in a leisure vehicle before.

Niesmann+Bischoff managing director, Hubert Brandl, explained: “We have completely redefined the interior design for the new Flair. With new materials, a new design language and a new architecture – but combined with the very best liner technology.” Hubert and his team have spent roughly two years on the development process, resulting in an explosion of innovative ideas. As a consequence, the motorhome is available in an almost infinite number of different configurations, enabling customers to make their dream premium liner a reality.

New look, inside and out

The first thing noticeable about the 2023 Flair is the exterior makeover that features more sporty lines, headlights that are further apart, and daytime running lights that add safety and style. But it’s only once you step inside the Flair that you see why Hubert claims: “No other vehicle feels as spacious, uncluttered and peaceful inside.” The modern interior sign is quite a big step away from traditional conservative interiors and not only feels more spacious, but actually is. The passageway through to the bed is wide, while the hinged table leg and folding table top can be adjusted to make it easy to access the cab from the living space and its cosy face-to-face seating area. Geometric ceiling cabinets provide additional room in the cockpit, without compromising on storage space. Alternatively, however, two extra berths can be accommodated here, with a lifting bed that all but vanishes in the ceiling.

User-friendly tech

Home comforts are expected in most leisure vehicles in modern times, so with a premium motorhome liner, you expect even more. Niesmann+Bischoff has delivered by adding smart features like a 32in TV that can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button, speakers integrated in the wall lights and in the cab, and a lighting concept that has been designed in a way that makes it as intuitive as possible to operate. There are motion and light sensors that will light up the corridor at night. The living area, rear garage and storage compartment for supplies have automatic lights, which are activated when the doors or flaps are opened.

An astonishing amount of space has been created underfoot by another new development: all of the vital tanks and smart technology is concealed by a new, highly practical double floor. All of the installations have been completely rearranged with the aim of creating as much storage space as possible, while also making it easier to access. Thanks to the retractable box system, the new space could not be any easier to use.

Other technical innovations make the Flair particularly self-sufficient: the liner is equipped with a 100 Ah lithium battery as standard, for example. The independent power supply can be upped to 6 x 100 Ah – combined with a powerful inverter and charger as well as a battery management system. There is also the choice of a 220 or 440 watt solar energy system. A 370-litre fresh water tank is also fitted on board as standard. In addition, a liner pack can also be ordered, which includes a ceramic toilet with a 200-litre tank along with electric drain valve, as well as warm water underfloor heating and real glass windows.

Safety first

Niesmann+Bischoff also made safety one of its top priorities with this iteration of the Flair. Iveco’s electronic assistance systems, such as Emergency Brake Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and the Lane Departure Warning System, offer real added value where safety and comfort are concerned. Niesmann+Bischoff has combined all of these popular options into one single driving safety pack. The new Flair – just like its predecessor – continues to be the only liner that features airbags, ESP, a seatbelt tensioner and a crash mechanism for the brake. While this has been common in passenger cars for a long time now, in the liner class of fully-integrated motorhomes, this unique safety concept is something of a unique selling point for the Flair.

The new Flair is now available to order, and those interested will be able to take a tour of the first prototypes at this year’s Caravan Salon show in Düsseldorf from 26 August to 4 September.
