The ERWIN HYMER GROUP, Europe’s leading motorhome and caravan manufacturer, will display a different caliber of Class B motorhome known as the HymerCar Grand Canyon as it initiates dealer development during the 2015 Florida RV SuperShow, Jan. 14-18 in Tampa. The company reported in a press release that the HymerCar features European design and German engineering that enables class-leading fit, finish and product quality. Two Grand Canyon vehicles are featured in Booth No. 668.
The best floorplan and the broadest feature-set available on a Ram ProMaster chassis affords HymerCar owners the flexibility of destination RVing for extended periods or day trips to festivals or sporting events. The HymerCar Grand Canyon has been redesigned following extensive market research on the needs of the North American consumer, yet it retains HYMER brand innovations from Europe, which are “more advanced than what was previously available in the North American RV market,” the company said.
“The HymerCar Grand Canyon will rewrite the book for Class B motorhomes in North America,” said Giovanni Marcon, managing director, U.S. market development. “The Grand Canyon delivers unprecedented performance and capability for people who need the versatility of a motorhome in a smaller package than the traditional Class A or Class C motorhome. The Grand Canyon is designed to meet the needs of the die-hard tailgater, the weekend explorer and so much more.”
The HymerCar strikes a new balance, the release stated. It is a vehicle solution that addresses the needs of different target customers, including the day-to-day versatility demanded by mature adults on short trips; young families or active outdoor enthusiasts; the features and capacities demanded by RV enthusiasts for the typical extended RV experience.
The ERWIN HYMER GROUP builds over 35,000 recreational vehicles per year. In Germany, the largest market in Europe, the ERWIN HYMER GROUP builds and ships one of every three motorhomes sold in the country.
Built on a new “Euro-Van” platform – sourced through Fiat/Chrysler – the Ram ProMaster offers 285 hp, front-wheel drive and a raised roof.
Features and benefits include:
European Design and Space Utilization: The HymerCar vehicle interior has an unmistakable European flair. It is enabled by German design engineers, with premium materials of the highest quality and componentry – such as soft-close drawers – with exceptional fit and finish; “unparalleled” space utilization throughout; dining area that offers more table space and seating capacity; and interior and exterior color harmony.
More Flexible Entertainment System: A 24-inch video display can be moved to multiple locations within the HymerCar depending on the needs of the customer. Optimized for tailgating, the HymerCar accommodates storage of oversized video displays up to 50 inches. The rear storage area can be utilized for storage of other goods with a high vertical profile.
Comfort Fit for a King: Premium cushions and upholstery are found throughout the cabin. HymerCar bedding is 75% deeper than the competition and includes a mattress suspension system not offered by many competitors.
Multi-Function Window Design: Automotive-grade windows with aluminum frames are more secure, improve exterior appearance and include an integrated blackout screen and insect screen.
More Intelligent Storage: Engineered storage solutions offer the capability to carry more. The folding bed creates unique options to carry oversized items such as a bicycle and other recreational sports equipment.
Fully-Equipped Kitchen: The HymerCar boasts a full-scale kitchen to meet all your needs: a two-burner stove, 3.8 cubic foot refrigerator and all the storage you need.
