The Hymer Aktiv S is built on the Mercedes Sprinter 2500 chassis and is the first Sprinter model for the Hymer brand in North America.

The floor plan is similar to the company’s other Aktiv model on the Ram ProMaster chassis with a second-row seating bench, full kitchen galley on the passenger side, full bathroom with shower and cassette toilet, and a flip-up bed with storage.

The Aktiv seats four and sleeps four with rear queen size bed and optional front bed.

The full kitchen includes a 3.1 cu. ft. refrigerator, two-burner recessed propane stove with flush cover, and microwave.

The Aktiv also includes a screen package, LED lighting, power awning, and 24-inch HD flat screen TV with DVD player and HDMI hookup.

The interior color palette is also new for the Hymer line up as it features warm grey tone fabrics mixed with the light buttercream cabinets, reminiscent of styling available in Europe.

Also new this year in the Hymer booth is the American Fastbacks full camping Jeeps. Built on the Jeep Sports Chassis, these units are equipped with a rear kitchen galley, custom interior bed cushion, roof top tent, and upgraded rugged parts. These Jeeps have the ability to sleep up to four people. For additional details, click here to access earlier post.

The Hymer booth also showed Touring GT Trailers and the recently launched Hymer Aktiv 2.0 Loft.

The Touring GT is an ultra-light-weight towable trailer that comes equipped with a pop top roof, extensive storage, a king-size bed, full bathroom, and kitchen.

Due to being on the Ram ProMaster extended chassis, the extra 15 inches allows for more storage space at the rear of the Akiv 2.0.

The added space also allows for a rear king bed with dimensions of 70 inches x 71 inches, while also allowing space for the rear power sofa option, not available on the shorter chassis. The Hymer Aktiv 2.0 loft sleeps up to six people.

“The Hershey show is always an important one for us as it kicks off our show season and we have a lot of great new products to showcase this year,” said Mike Snell, VP of sales and service for Erwin Hymer Group North America.

“We are excited to showcase the Hymer Sprinter as well at the Aktiv Loft edition as they are the perfect addition to our Hymer line up and gives us the ability to offer something for everyone in the market for a Hymer campervan.”

Worth Pondering…
If you feel bored do something, for there is always something to do, see or explore in this world. Keep in mind that boredom can also cause depression, so get out there and live now.
