    Hi Guys

    I was wondering as to how to value a Hymer B544 ,left hand drive 3,berth in good condition, just had a worried MIL on the phone with regards to afore mentioned Hymer ,she cant drive it and FIL had a stroke yesterday and was told that his driving days are over.

    Ill get photos and stuff next weekend but i was hoping to help MIL,s worried and stressed levels , by getting her a ball park figure

    kind regards
    Matt

    Why not do a quick search on Ebay or Autotrader and get a comparison.

    Obviously I don't know the details but having a stroke doesn't mean someone can't drive again. It might take a year or so to fully recover but it should be possible to get his licence back. But of course, I don't know the details of FIL's case but it might be something for him to look forward to and aid his recovery. The day after a stroke is too early to make important decisions. See how things look in a week. :) Recovering from a stroke requires "tough love" in the sense of getting the patient to do things for themselves, washing, shaving etc if it is at all possible for them to do it themselves with encouragement.

    don't think they made b544 in 1972

    Prefix L is 1993

    depending on millage, condition etc.. I'd value between £8 - 10k

    Also depends on base vehicle, the merc go for the most (although not sure that they made any b544s on a merc?) then the fiats then the citroens. I'd agree with your ball park on a fiat in good general condition with around 100k miles (ideally less).

    "Improving" them also knocks a few quid off, so ideally it would be in original condition

    Don't believe so..

    B class is Fiat .. S class is Merc.

    and as far as I know they never made an S544

    Hymer Layouts

    As you will know Hymer manufactured many different layouts over the years. It is impossible to list them all. Below we tried our best to explain the most popular ones. Hopefully it will be a little help to you finding your perfect layout!

    Don't try to understand all the different numbers thinking there must be some sort of logic behind them: there isn't. They don't relate to the length of the vehicle in centimeters or the number of berth it's got or anything else. One thing that's for sure though is the distinction between the Hymer B- and S-class. The “B” stands for Fiat-Models, the “S” stands for Mercedes. The E-class was introduced in 1995 as an upgraded Fiat version.
