    Have decided that I want a German van...Thinking of buying in Germany to save money.

    So as the title - is there much difference?

    We spent most of last Autumn trying to chose between them.....then chose a Dethleffs!!

    A lot will depend on what you want and which one meets those needs the best....

    Not all Hymers or Burstners are the same but it is unlikely that any of them will disappoint...

    We recently bought our Hymer from Becks of Martham who also sell new Burstner vans. The salesman said that they considered Hymer to be the better quality.
    We didnt even consider Burstner as the Hymer ticked the boxes for us and definately no regrets.

    The answer has to be the one which most closely matches the essentials and desirables on your list.
    We are very happy with our Burstner.
    Burstner are part of the Hymer group.

    We imported our Hymer Exsis i698 last June reckon we saved around £15 to £20000 so well worth buying in Germany,and of course you will get a great van.

    I'm not sure if it's so straight forward as each brand has different ranges, with very different levels of quality.

    For example a Burstner Elegance is very different to say a Burstner Nexxo...

    Personally, if funds allowed, I'd choose Carthago (y)
