Luxury motorhomes do their best to have very few compromises. Spending hundreds of thousands of pounds should include some niceties, as Concorde does with its Liner 1090 GIO. The motorhome does its best to bring the entire homeownership experience along for the ride by having a garage.
The space is on the smaller side, but it’s still large enough to fit a proper car. The vehicle can’t measure more than 4.3 metres long or 1.36 m tall, nor can it weigh more than 1,400 kilograms. The size and weight requirements disqualify many modern machines, but the current Mazda MX-5 would fit.

The garage is located at the back of the motorhome, which cuts into the bedroom space and lowers the ceiling height. The motorhome’s “relaxation centre,” as Concorde calls it, can fit a queen-size bed. The bathroom features stainless steel fittings, a cast stone washbasin, and ample storage.
The Liner 1090 GIO has a U-shaped kitchen between the forward living space and the bedroom. It has the refrigerator and pantry on one side and the sink, counter space, and cooktop on the other. There’s also ample storage above and below the kitchen area.
The living area and cabin are available in various colours, finishes, and materials, with two bench seats facing each other and a dinette table in the middle. The two front captain’s chairs also swivel around for more seating space. Up front, the motorhome has a leather dashboard and an elevated seating position.
The Concorde builds the Liner 1090 GIO on the Mercedes-Benz chassis. It has a 7.7-litre straight-six engine making 299 bhp and 885 lb-ft of torque that powers the rig. It can measure up to 11.5 metres long and 2.5 m wide while weighing more than 12 tonnes. The motorhome starts at €542,000 (around £468,700 at today’s exchange rate).
