Niesmann+Bischoff has debuted its newest motorhome, the iSmove, which sits on the body of a Fiat Ducato and relies on movable furniture to accomodate up to five people.

The Germany-based motorhome maker, which is a subsidiary of the Erwin Hymer Group, currently has three other tiny homes on wheels in its lineup: the Smove, Arto, and Flair. But unlike these previous models, the iSmove was created to “break all the rules” by integrating new design elements into the shape shifting space.

Like other motorhome makers around the world, Niesmann+Bischoff was negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic after the company had to shut its factory operations down and delay delivery dates, according to a news release posted in March.

But now, the motorhome maker is bouncing back into the market with its latest unveiling, which comes at a fortuitous time in which RV makers have seen a spike in inquiries and sales as more people have started considering road instead of air travel.

The motorhome’s aluminum walls with styrofoam insulation can be optionally lined with felt for better “ambient sounds” inside the motorhome.

Unlike many traditional tiny homes on wheels, the entry door into the iSmove is windowless, which makes the interior look more put together, according to Niesmann+Bischoff.

Unlike most motorhomes and camper vans that are millennial-friendly by being all-white, the iSmove has dark ceilings, which gives the interior a cozy feel, according to its maker.

… and a cockpit that sits under the lifting bed.

The secondary lifting bed can be stored in the ceiling above the cockpit when it’s not in use.

The main bedroom is located at the rear of the motorhome, and there are two bedroom options that differ on the bed space: clients can either opt to have one queen bed, or two smaller beds.

For those who can afford to splurge even more on the iSmove, Niesmann+Bischoff also offers pages of upgrades at additional costs, ranging from different accent colors to multimedia systems to kitchen add-ons.

But anyways, let’s get back to the motorhome.

The sleeping space can also be blocked off from the rest of the motorhome by using an optional kitchen shelf (we’ll get to that in a bit) and a sliding door.

The L-shaped kitchen — which sits between the living area and the bedroom — can be upgraded with the Premium Kitchen package. This allows the unit to extend and expand when in use.

There’s also a refrigerator drawer for prolonged food storage.

There are also motion sensor lights in the bathroom, which means occupants won’t have to stumble around at night just to use the toilet.

The passenger bench seat — which comes with seatbelts — can optionally rotate to face the table.

For those who want additional seating, Niesmann+Bischoff can also include a fifth seat across the table with built-in storage.

The driver and main passenger seats can swivel to face the interior and table as well, creating a leisure space that can accommodate a whole family.

Occupants seated at the table also have the optional 32-inch television and sound system in their line of sight.

The tiny home on wheels can be brightened with its ambient indirect, reading, and in-ceiling lights.

The brightness of several of these lights can then be adjusted on the glass panel touchscreen, which also serves as the control panel for other amenities.

For gear storage, iSmove has optional exterior drawers and a rear garage that can hold items like bicycles or surfboards.

The iSmove can stay off-grid by using the 52.83-gallon fresh and 31.7-gallon waste water tanks, and the 100-amp hour lithium battery system.

To further these off-grid capabilities, the iSmove can also be upgraded to have up to three 100-amp hour battery systems, a 125-watt solar panels, a 13.21-gallon gas tank, and a 31.7-gallon toilet in the bathroom.
