Burstner is up to the compact van

After truly entering the compact motorhome segment last year, Burstner is expanding its model range this summer with a full line of new products based on the Fiat Ducato and Ford Transit.

While Burstner was previously thought to be a manufacturer of large motorhomes primarily in the middle class, last year saw a drastic change with an aggressive debut in “living vans”, as Kiehl’s company produced camper vans, panel vans and semi-integrated vans. gives a summary. ,

Now out of the six compact series, only two semi-integrated Nexo vans and travel vans remain unchanged. Based on the Ford Transit Custom introduced last year, the Urban Tourist Copa will be expanded by two variants.

The nearly five-metre tall C500 will also be available with an all-wheel drive system that automatically switches on as the wheels on the front axle spin. The electromagnetic clutch engages and distributes the drive forces in a 50:50 ratio of the front and rear axles depending on position. Alternatively, all-wheel drive can be turned on permanently via a push button switch in the cockpit.

This doesn’t turn the Copa Camper into a hardcore off-roader, but it does provide good traction on loose and slippery surfaces like sand, snow or damp grass. There’s also an optional all-road package with deep-tread tyres, a trail-design radiator grille and underbody protection.

Also new in the Kopa series is the C530, which will be available from July. Due to the 30 cm longer vehicle length at the rear, this folding washbasin enables the installation of a shower/toilet room with permanently installed cassette toilet, a plug-in shower tray and shower head with a shower curtain In the form of a pull-out water tap. So the standard pop-up roof also opens at the rear, unlike the C500. Prices not yet decided.

The Lineo C590 on the larger Ford Transit van features a classic six-metre floor plan and a square high position with double transverse beds in the rear, kitchen, weight room and front seating. Heated double floors can be loaded from behind or on a sliding door. The high ceilings guarantee a consistent headroom of about two metres.

With the new Eliseo C644, Bürstner is also striving to live up to its reputation as a maker of interior innovations in compact models. The fifth floor plan of the Fiat Ducato series aims to expand the portfolio with a division with a high level of living comfort, by realizing an all-round seating group at the rear with a compact length of 6.36 metres. In addition, the bathroom with toilet and the partition for the shower were moved directly behind the driver’s seat. There is a kitchen block in front.

For sleeping configuration, a fold-down bed is lowered to a level with the rear extension above the seating group, with storage accessible from behind—there’s room for a bicycle, too. This creates a generous lying surface at approximately chest height. In a one-of-a-kind bunk bed, the downstairs seating area can also be converted into a double bed. However, those spending the night there need not be claustrophobic.
