Since I am no longer employed by Hymer, I can admit to being the guy who designed this van (with extreme direction given to how it was constructed and the materials used, which I apologize for) and can answer your questions regarding it.

The metal frame side screen door, like the Aktiv, will not fit the axion because of lack of space at the galley and the over door panel will interfere. They tend to jam up and break a lot too. I would not recommend the Aktiv one.

The Zion side screen magnet door will work. The rear screen won't because there's nothing to screw it into at the back. It's made locally by KW leather, the company that was on the news that laid off their entire workforce. So, if you want one, better get on it.

I love the design. Great job. Maybe the Axion will be collectors item!

Welcome to the forum Clean, and sorry for your loss of employment!

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but perhaps you could share (here or in a new thread) some of the other RT suppliers. In particular, who made the Chevy ground effects parts?

Thanks, Dick

All the creditors are listed here. Unfortunately, I haven't worked on a Chevy since 2011. Running boards are either coming from China or Fiberlam in Hamilton.

Welcome to the forum Clean!

Sorry about your situation at Roadtrek/Hymer. If you've read other threads here, there is little sympathy for RT management, but much sympathy for it's workers like yourself. It's shocking that such an iconic brand is now gone.

Please stick around because your knowledge (as you've already demonstrated) can be very helpful to those owners of recent models who need all the support they can get.

Again, best of luck to you.

Did you see post from “Clean”. He used to work at Hymer. Says Zion screen door will fit. Did you research the Zion screen door?

I bought one of those as seen on TV magnet doors.

Will see if I can fashion something.

Default Seat belt extender

I installed these. Got tired of fighting the buckle. Too low for me. Bonus the seat belt warning is gone.

I used 2” heat shrink wrap to hold the original and extended seat belt buckles together. Completely reversible.

If it works for you and is comfortable, that is a great find.
