It's just the right size for us two olde fahrts! https://travelingbyrv.blogspot.com/
Congrats on the new Van. Seems like the trend now is many folks downsizing but of course there are trade-offs.
I am really glad to hear that Hymer stepped up, did the right thing, and got your new van sorted out. Hymer just has to figure out how to get their quality and fit and finish up. The Van One's I saw at a couple dealers were in poor shape and they were brand new.
I really like the layout of the Van One with the rear bath. It's similar to the Travato 59K (we just ordered) but it's a bit shorter and even more maneuverable.
I like the layout of the Hymer Aktiv as well but I think many of us are still waiting and hoping Hymer, or another major manufacture, brings out a 4X4 van with the amenities and comfort of more "traditional" RV but with a more modern design and layout better suited for Moab type adventures that include mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, etc.
Keep us posted how you like the new van.
