Default HymerCar USA

Does anyone know when Hymer vans will be available for purchase in NA? These are very impressive, I like the Promaster chassis and would definitely consider buying one of these...

I moved rclemins question to this new topic. For reference, the "HymerCar Grand Canyon at Tampa RV Show" topic is here: http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/vi...php?f=9&t=3455

Useful links:

Website: http://hymer-usa.com/

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HymerUSA

YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzb3Fz ... DDHECNxS9w

I think this new topic about Hymercar in North America will be useful. What other questions do you have for Hymer?

So far:
When will Hymer vans will be available for purchase in North America?
What is the capacity of the LPG tank?

Euro Grand Canyon looks like this:




I expect it is the same in the US model.
The sink flips up to save space.

Looks ok to me. Why hide it?

I like the fold down sink. It appears very simple and functional, perhaps even removable for a thorough cleaning. The floor looks good as a way to keep feet out of the drain water. The toilet (a cassette one -- you can tell by the blue flush button on the wall under the sink) is one that can pivot to a number of angles, allowing for being able to do one's business without bumping one's knees on a wall.

I -think- they are hiding it because Hymer is getting mixed reactions to cassette toilets.

Yeah, the flip-up sink is great. Echos of 1930s streamliners.

Another Hymercar North America related link with photos: https://picasaweb.google.com/1019582783 ... 2015011404

The suspension system for the mattress is interesting.



We're seeing some innovation lately when it comes to beds in Class B's.
- Winnebago Travato with the Froli system
- Hymer with the suspension system
- Davydd's articulated bed in his Advanced RV.

The bed suspension for our Advanced RV articulated bed was first conceived as a slat bed. There are only a couple of places that sell slat beds in the USA. Ikea is probably the best known. We have a couple of slat beds in our house and I was tempted to tear one apart and build my own mockup. However, Advanced RV enthusiastically jumped in and the rest of the story is complicated best left to the Advancing Alvar thread.
