Million-dollar motorhome will “eat” your Mercedes-Benz AMG

By Jame Raia

If you’re in the market for a motorhome and have at least a million dollars to spend, consider the Perfect 1200 Platinum.

The newest VARIOmobil features a massive living space with three electro-hydraulic slide-outs. It has a symphony hall-grade audio system. Intelligent lighting and top-line appliances are featured.

It also has zero towing capacity because it can “swallow” a vehicle as large as a Mercedes-Benz AMG GT.

The Perfect 1200 Platinum is manufactured by a family-owned business in Osnabrück, Germany, specializing in opulent motorhomes. The new model is 39 feet long and weighs 52,000 pounds.

Million-dollar motorhome furnishings

Available furnishings and equipment include a touchscreen-controlled induction cooktop, 190-L refrigerator, dishwasher, full bathroom with mineral stone sink and a LED TV with satellite. A Bose audio system, washer/dryer, leather upholstery, real wood veneers, and microprocessor-controlled ambient lighting add further luxury.

The cabin sleeps six and includes the option of a pull-down bed that stores above captain’s chairs in the driver cab.

The Perfect series million-dollar motorhome features an updated self-supporting fiberglass sandwich bodywork construction. A UV-filtering panoramic windshield design, an understated neutral color scheme, and a long countersunk window line are included.

All of the pneumatically sealed slide-outs create a master bedroom and a stretched living area. Living-room-grade power recliners serve as driver and front passenger seats. They swivel to join the sofa and side recliner for a six-person lounge. And there’s room for an optional 43-inch screen television.

The million-dollar motorhome has a top-line kitchen

The VARIOmobil’s optional “cubeART” kitchen offers a dual-burner induction cooktop. There’s a sink with a modern designer faucet and drawers with illuminated handles. Behind the main kitchen block is a 195-L Kissmann KT210 compressor refrigerator. An oven, dishwasher and coffeemaker are optional.

The rear bedroom has a 108-sq-ft floor plan with sleeping for four. The optional drop-down 77 x 51-in bed stores above the driver area.

Additional standard features include a dual 170-Ah gel battery system, 17,000-W diesel water boiler/cabin heater, 500-L freshwater tank and an LCD command center. The microprocessor-controlled “Platinum” lighting system includes various illumination patterns and dimming capabilities.

Available add-ons and upgrades include Victron lithium batteries, solar charging, back-up generator options, air conditioning, an LED touch panel command center and a washer/dryer. Buyers can also browse through multimedia options. Televisions, a Bose sound system, 4G connectivity with onboard Wi-Fi and Apple TV are available.

The Perfect 1200 is based on the Mercedes-Benz Actros 2453 with a 422-hp 10.7-liter turbo-diesel six-cylinder standard, 523-hp 12.8-liter unit (Actros 2553) optional. Air suspension and 12 wheels are split among three axles. The self-steering trailing axle improves maneuverability.

Pricing starts at $1,042,450. Options and upgrades can increase the price to more than $1.7 million. The optional Mercedes-Benz AMG costs about $100,000. Visit:

I think that there is a mistake in the number of tires. It would have to be duals on the tag axle, the lead axle, and the steer axle to equal 12 tires. Most steerable tags are single tire, and steer axles are a single tire, so that would be 8 tires. Also, the weight is too heavy for axle weight limits for American roads. I guess that being a retired trucker makes this catch my eye.

Looks like very close quarters in the “garage”. Wonder how you get the car in and out?

Just had to peek Inside. Love the drive in car storage but then realized how much interior room that takes up. We will stick to towing. Not to mention not having an extra million $$ sitting around waiting to spend.
