    Hi and welcome to the site. The Hymer 660 (fiat) and 660S (Mercedes) of earlier years were extremely well built you should be well please with it. Although the large engine does suffer from a lower than average fuel consumption in the Merc it is a reliable lump that if looked after is good for darn near a million miles. The one piece fiberglass roof and general construction virtually eliminates water ingress. The very early ones had a marine type toilet flushing to a black tank, later ones had a cassette . The built in remote start onan generator is a joy and combined with some solar panels can make you quite independent power wise. Almost everything on it is repairable despite the age though some parts are now becoming scarce. There are a number of members who have and love then, the 660S has a cult following along with the slightly longer 700. Many vans from the 80's and 90's still make the trip south to the sun every winter.
