It's immediately obvious from the distinctive styling that this is no run of the mill two-berth caravan.

Maybe it’s the deep, curved overhead lockers with oversized brushed aluminium handles and opaque Perspex inserts; or it could possibly be the absence of proper curtains.

Then again, the subtle LED ambient lighting underneath the lockers and pelmets could be the clincher. Actually, it’s almost certainly a combination of all three that makes it clear that this is something special.

From the bodywork to the quality of light fittings (LEDs outside as well as inside) you can see that when it comes down to quality without compromise, Hymer does an excellent job.

Hymer grey/silver external paintwork looks great in an understated way, as do the big 15-inch alloy wheels and the immensely long A-frame - covered only with a vestigial fairing and tipped with an AL-KO AK3004 stabiliser.

To the left of the door, there’s a half depth mirror with a small fabric pouch beneath designed, I suspect for feminine-type grooming accessories.

To the right there’s a large, clutter-free curved work surface, underneath which lives the fridge, a sizable shelf and the Truma heater.

Over the door, you’ll find the control panel with easy-to-read displays to indicate the health of the leisure battery and the fullness of the on-board water tank.

Directly opposite is a compact granite-effect worktop, domestic-style oven/grill and four-burner gas hob with huge pan cupboard underneath.

An extractor fan with filter and a couple of mini spotlights sits above the cooker and this is complimented by another twin-halogen striplight over the work surface with integrated 230v power point.

No continental-style kitchen compromises here then; and whilst its an impressive array, space on this side is at a premium - especially when using the sink and drainer.
