Hymer has launched six new campervans one of which is built on the Volkswagen T5
The Hymer VW campervan – called the Cape Town – joins five other all-new campervans – the Rio, the Sydney, the Grand Canyon, the Yellowstone and the Serengeti – which are built on the Fiat Ducato.
The campers have been designed and built by a new division of Hymer – called HymerCar – that has been created to allow the manufacturer to get a foothold in the growing European campervan market.
The new VW HymerCar will come to the UK next year, although left-hand drive models are already available and British dealers have already placed orders.
The VW Cape Town features a double bed that can be easily made up and sits across the cabinetwork.
It also features a unique pop-top rising roof that has a double joint at the rear so it allows for walking room inside when the ‘upstairs’ bed is not in use.
Hymer has also created a range of bespoke storage solutions for the new campervans
In addition, Hymer has created a clever bicycle-carrying system for the new VW campervan
The public will be able to view the new HymerCars, including the all-new VW Cape Town, at the October NEC motorhome show.
While prices have yet to be confirmed, expect the new VW Hymer to cost in excess of £50,000, which puts it in the same price range of the VW California.
