Hopefully there will be a press release with photos if this is the first Hymer model offered. Give it a good launch.

I'm wondering if the plan is to let the two brands under the EHGNA umbrella, Hymer and Roadtrek, compete.

Yes, very curious to see how they will announce it. Hope they have good marketing people because the task is not easy. Their Facebook page [Hymer USA] https://www.facebook.com/HymerUSA/?fref=ts doesn't seem very Aktiv!

They tend to have a paucity of info, from the website which wasn't updated for ages.

Time well tell. I'm going to give them two years to warm up to the US market before I have any real relevant comments about them.

I like the bike storage in this Hymer: Desert Autoplex RV | Pre-owned Dealer | Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona

Photos show optional twin beds.

Wow, what a great RV. Looks like you could easily apply it to a Transit chassis too if you were so inclined.

Photos show a number of different options/models - The ML-T has models ranging from 6.36m to 7.79m.

Coming soon?? This ad is a very confusing since Hymer or RT has not mentioned any Class Cs yet and new Hymer factory in Ontario is not even built yet.

That Hymer MLT at Desert Autoplex RV says it's Coming Soon as a 2016 model. In Europe the MLT is available with the Sprinter 4x4 option for extra ground clearance and traction. Pretty impressive for a 23ft long camper!

This is it? The Aktiv?
Already a Class C in the works for the NA Hymer Group ?
