Find out what the experts think of the Niesmann+Bischoff Arto 69G in the Practical Motorhome review
Inside, the Arto makes good use of light coloured fabrics and finishes to give a bright and airy feel to the cabin. The German designers have stayed away from curving corridors and it’s easy to navigate your way through all areas of this motorhome.
The habitation area door on the driver’s side reveals the ’van’s Continental origins.
On the road
The driving position is comfortable, but the steering wheel does not have sufficient adjustment to cater for all drivers. Forward and side vision is excellent.
The Arto is let down because its only entry point is a side door to the rear cabin – there are no cab doors. This means that you have to squeeze past the walk-through in order to get behind the wheel.
Lounging & dining
Kitchen storage is excellent, and includes a slide-out cupboard with three internal racks, and kitchen drawers.
Reading lights and a skylight illuminate the rear bed compartment, as do two windows. Fixed steps ease access to the rear bed and are easy to use.
The drop-down overcab beds require the front cab seats to be tilted forward, which allows the beds to extend fully into position. The bed is comfortable and spacious.
