    Lot of money for an ugly old Hymer that only does 55mph as a cruising speed ...

    That is a well over the top asking price, was eager to take a look until I saw the cost.
    I'm looking for an older model of any MH really, not to replace mine, but because I just want one. A classic, I think they call them these days, but I don't think any will ever become classics, may be collect able.

    Agree with that!

    Oi, we have the same "ugly" old Hymer, which is bootiful to us, which "cruised" to Puddleduck farm at 75mph last Friday, with a few little 80+ spurts when required, thank you very much, and when a lot of more modern machines are crawling along in limp mode it will still be cruising at 75+.

    We did crawl up the hill after the A11/M11 interchange at 40mph on the way home, struggling to pass a a restored 68'ish Commer m/home, but there was a strong headwind. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Sorry @JJ, doesn't do a lot for me either.
    I'd prefer to pay a few quid more for the one that @Norman Jones is advertising on here.

    I dont know where this 55 MPH comes from. My old 670 RMB built on the same running gear was good for well over the legal speed limit. The photo below shows the old dowager bringing a VW Dehler back from Hamburg without breaking sweat. Dont try this with a modern MH as there is a good chance the rear end would part company with the front.

    And of course the milage is genuine I suppose, I think the vendor is having a laugh, it will be intersesing to see what it sells for, perhaps 7K would be nearer the mark.

    The majority of these older flagship model Hymers are still trundling around, unlike there British built counterparts from the same era. There used to be lots for sale in Germany at little money and many found there way here to the UK. I think it was Oaktree who first started bringing them in and I do believe thats where JJ acquired his. Those that now own these Sclass Hymers know they are not the fastest or the most frugal MHs on the road, but what compensates for that is the build quality and reliability of these old motorhomes. They were built in a day before the accountants were running the manufactures and when your average German had plenty disposable income. Many of these older quality built models are now finding there way to the old commy block countries where labour is cheap and people have now got a shilling or two to spend on luxuries. They will only go up in price now, unlike your modern MH.

    Some folk just don't get it... :(

    and they never ever will. ;)

    They look at the Mona Lisa and say,

    "Look at that silly old painting... I much prefer the one in Lidl's... you know... the Spanish Lady print in that nice plastic frame".

    I blame Thatcher.
