BIRMINGHAM, England, January 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Hymer's largest UK motorhome dealer, Travelworld, is celebrating following the receipt of an industry award for the German manufacturer's new compact motorhome, the Hymer Van 314.
The 314 won Compact Motorhome of the Year at the National Motorhome Awards 2016 recently, and has since been credited with answering a growth in demand for those who want a semi-integrated motorhome which doubles as a second car.
The winning entry from Hymer is the smallest low profile model of its kind, measuring 2.22m in width and 5.45m in length, yet built on an AL-KO chassis with garage to the rear. The vehicle has been noted for its agility and its ability to be parked almost anywhere, providing a new breadth of freedom to modern motorhomers.
Available space has been maximised via a two burner gas hob/sink and flip-up worktop with refrigerator beneath. There is a drop down basin by the toilet and a third bed is an option with the in-cab stretcher bunk, and still room for a nicely sized transverse double bed.
The UK's largest Hymer dealer, Travelworld Motorhomes, has already seen positive response from its customers. Nick Barker, Sales Manager at the Shropshire based company, said: "Customers have been delighted with the new model and how the use of space has been cleverly considered. The 314 SL is the epitome of the everyday motorhome that everyone and anyone can use; having the Hymer stamp is a huge added bonus as customers know automatically there has been no economising on quality."
In addition to the winning model, Hymer has also recently launched three new models, in the form of the semi-integrated 374, similar to the 314 but with two single beds. The Hymer Van S range has also seen the addition of two new models with the S520 and the S500 models, both built on the Mercedes Sprinter 313 CDi.
Hymer is known for its long history in motorhome manufacturing and is experiencing a peak in sales.
Ross Edwards, Managing Director at Travelworld Motorhomes says: "This award marks the beginning of what was always going to be an exciting year for Hymer. As a leading UK dealer, we are in the privileged position to see, first-hand, how pleased customers are with the 314 SL. Hymer has listened to what people want in a motorhome and has more than delivered on that."
