What’s new from Hymer for 2022?

One of Germay’s leading leisure vehicle brands, Hymer, has revealed its latest releases and updates to its motorhome and caravan brands that are set to hit the market in 2022. The company, which also houses the Eriba brand, has plenty to show off this year, and will be showcasing much of it digitally in line with the new strategy of its parent company Erwin Hymer Group to only attend events every other year, meaning it won’t be at Caravan Salon in 2021.

Digital upgrades

Perhaps one of the most poignant updates for Hymer is the expansion of its digitalisation programme by adding compatibility for its innovative Hymer Connect app to its B-Class ModernComfort model range. The smart ecosystem combines the controls for numerous vehicle components as well as the display of vehicle information in one single digital platform, making it the industry’s first connectivity solution of its kind for the connected motorhome. Using the Hymer Connect app and the B-Class ModernComfort’s redesigned control panel, all of the smart features can be controlled in a simple and intuitive way. 

Layout launches

New layouts are always to be expected in new product launches as companies seek to tweak existing ranges to the needs of the camping public. For 2022, Hymer has released a revisited layout of its T-Class S 585 motorhome that includes an extra-wide couch two comfortable twin beds, a floor-to-ceiling wardrobe and vario bathroom with clever swivel solution. Meanwhile the Eriba Nova 565 caravan has also received a revamp with a large double bed that can be partitioned off with a half-heigh room divider, a spacious bathroom with separate shower, up to three bunk beds and a cosy, U-shaped seating area. 

Racking them up

Another interesting launch from Hymer is a dive into the RV accessories market – the Backrack+ from its Original Parts division. This modular designed rear rack for either a Fiat Ducato or Citroën Jumper van can help users easily store spare wheels, bicycles, skis, additional luggage and much more, and can be bought with a wide range of accessory components to really customise it. It has a load capacity of 80kg and keeps the area around the towbar of your vehicle clear for use.
