The Appeal

 
Hymer is one of the best-known and most well-regarded names in the motorhome industry, having been involved in the manufacture of caravans and camper vans since 1956.

The company is respected as one of the more high-end and premium names in the business, with a background in building motor caravans on Mercedes-Benz and Fiat chassis.

Unlike most converters, though, Hymer creates entirely bespoke bodywork. Rather than retaining the original cab, Hymer motorhomes have a bespoke one-piece body allowing walk-through access to the cabin along with rotating captains’ seats that double up as armchairs when parked on caravan sites.

This example is one of Hymer’s Fiat-based vans, using the chassis of a 2001 Fiat Ducato medium wheelbase as a base. The Ducato has long been a popular camper conversion, not least because it’s a tough and reliable van that’s also both lively and easy to drive.

The vendor has owned it for four years and has enjoyed a number of trips away in the van, which also comes with a Thule detachable awning and rear bike rack. It is freshly serviced and has an MOT valid until March 2025.
 
 
 

The History and Paperwork

  • First registered March 2001
  • Three previous owners
  • MOT until March 2025
  • Original handbooks for the base van, Hymer conversion, LPG system, stereo and awning
  • UK V5C in the name of the vendor
  • Some service and repair invoices including recent service and MOT

 
 

The Condition

  • Hand-finished Hymer motor caravan body
  • Thule side awning
  • Rear bike rack for 2 x bikes
  • Very smart and well-presented with minor marks to outer bodywork but nothing of any note
  • Side decals slightly faded
  • Side window recently replaced
  • Matching nearly-new Michelin tyres all-round
  • Clean and functional interior
  • Three-berth
  • LPG-powered hot water, heating and fridge
  • External storage lockers
  • Cooker, microwave and sink
  • Fold-out table and dinette
  • One rear seat and belt
  • JVC CD/Radio

The exterior of the vehicle has the lockers you would expect for gas bottles and the cassette toilet and is in good overall order, though the side graphics are faded slightly. An aftermarket Thule awning is also a bonus and is almost new, giving extra flexibility on campsites. 

This Hymer is classed as a  3 berth, with a drop-down double bed plus 1 single bed with 1x rear seat (with seatbelt).
 
It’s well-appointed and spotlessly clean inside, with an oven, hob, microwave, LPG-heated shower, cassette toilet and plenty of storage space, including a number of fixtures and fittings that are included in the sale.

 
 

The Mechanics

  • 2.8-litre direct injection diesel
  • Five-speed manual transmission
  • Regularly serviced, most recently in April 2024
  • Genuine low mileage

Under the bonnet you’ll find Fiat’s stalwart 2.8-litre four-cylinder direct injection diesel engine – a unit renowned for being rugged and tough. It starts on the button and runs sweetly with no evident problems, having covered just 55,000 miles from new. The van has just had a full service and has an MOT expiring on March 31, 2025.
