Knaus sells more motorhomes in Germany than any other brand. What’s more, having made great strides following a change of ownership in 2009, the marque has a comprehensive offering across the board, from panel van conversions to A-classes. 

A selection of Knaus models is imported to the UK via Lowdham Leisureworld, based in Nottingham and Huddersfield, and Southdowns Motorhome Centre, in Portsmouth. These models boast an improved specification for the British market, including a range of base vehicle and motorhome option packs, and gas ovens. 

Knaus topped our Practical Motorhome Owner Satisfaction Awards 2014 for pre-owned vans, polling an almost perfect 98.9%; so potential buyers need have no worries about the quality of design or build. 

The Sky i range of A-class motorhomes sits close to the top of the Knaus portfolio. With its panoramic windscreen, brilliant white sidewalls and attractive front panel, this is a good-looking vehicle. 

In 700 LEG configuration, the Sky i features on-trend fixed twin single beds at the rear, over a large garage; a manually operated drop-down bed above the lounge provides two extra berths. A washroom is split across the width of the ’van, and there’s a continental-style L-shaped kitchen on the UK nearside.
