2016 is poised to be one of the most successful Hymer years to date. There has been a record number of sales in the last year and the German manufacturer has a fleet of new and highly anticipated model launches waiting in the wings for the coming year.
Hymer Semi-Integrated Motorhomes
There are some new and exciting semi-integrated motorhomes from Hymer for 2016. Our semi-integrated models are also known as a low-profile motorhome, meaning there are no berths over the cab area, making it a lower height overall. Here, we’ll take a look at the exciting new semi-integrated Hymers for the brand new year.
The Hymer Van
The Hymer Van is the perfect response to the rising demand for a motorhome/second car combined. This 2-3 berth model, which is available in four different colours, provides all the luxuries of a semi-integrated vehicle with an ideal compact size. It measures 5.45 metres in length; is 2.22 metres wide and has a height of 2.77 metres. Its lightweight allows drivers both the ease of manoeuvring and pleasure in driving while still having space for a bathroom, shower, bed and garage.
The Hymer Van has a lightweight AL-KO frame and equal weight distribution is provided with thanks to the well positioned wheelbase. Weather can sometimes be problematic for all vehicles but the Van is equipped with a GRP underbody which protects not only against poor weather conditions but also stone and grit damage.
Good ventilation is imperative and this where the Hymer Van excels by offering a roof light with adjustable opening so that ventilation is not ever a problem. There is also a roller blind which is fitted into the vent to help keep insects at bay. Heat-wise, the Truma Combi 4 generates plenty of warmth for a cosy temperature; it also has a control panel for easy adjustment. In addition, there is a 130 litre fresh water tank and a 90 litre waste water tank as well as an awning light with rain shield.
Hymer T-Class CL
High levels of luxury can be fully expected and appreciated on the 2- 5 berth Hymer T-Class CL semi-integrated model. It measures from 6.99 metres – 7.49 metres in length; 2.35 metres in width and 2.90 metres in height.
There is generous headroom of 2.2 metres which creates a definite feeling of space as soon as you enter the vehicle; this also allows interior design to be as flexible and creative as possible. In addition, there are generously proportioned over-head lockers that extend to the front of the model.
The small width of the T-Class CL which has a laden mass of 3.5 tons, adds to the ability to manoeuvre it easily. Despite this, there is still room left over for a large garage supplying a loading height of 100 cm. The Seitz framed windows provide thermal insulation thanks to the double glazing and multizone cold foam mattresses are on all beds with breathable mattress toppers.
If you’re looking to save energy then the LED technology fitted as standard throughout, helps reduce energy consumption and also offers safety protection.
