After Knaus Tabbert’s big financial problems in 2008 caused by the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the company has new investors and an extended product portfolio. It increased its turnover by 30% in each of the last two years and returned to the UK in 2012. The two best-selling UK motorhome magazines “Which Motorhome” and MMM (“Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly”) now awarded Knaus the title “Motorhome of the Year 2012″ for their new Knaus Sky TI 650 MF.
The judges rewarded the motorhome‘s excellent cost/performance ratio as it is both competitivly priced and well equipped with a practical layout, a sensible approach to storage and everything the UK motorhomer needs. The Knaus Sky TI features many functional extras, such as electric mirrors, cruise control and a cab air con. The layout inside is classic with an L-shaped lounge sofa facing a side sofa, an L-shaped kitchen, a longitudinal double bed and an adjacent bathroom.
However, this year’s “Motorhome of the Year” does obviously not just rely on the classics but offers many extras, for example a practical Service Box, a large underbed storage area, which can be accessed from inside and outside, and a flexible and yet classy washroom. All in all, the judging panel describes the Knaus Sky TI as practical, stylish and solid and therefore the deserved winner of the title “Motorhome of the Year 2012″.
