    Good morning everyone.

    I am in the market for "any" old, new, used, broken or what Hymer bits for my Hymer 540 Helen. She is left hand drive and is either a 1981 or 1982 model. If it helps I have a thread on the Hymer part of the forum called surprisingly "Helen the Hymer."

    Trawling the internet I found an old picture of her complete with the roof rack and rear ladder. So if for any reason you have anything like that chucked in the back of your garage/barn/shed or man/woman cave, I am interested.

    I am interested in just about anything, she is Mercedes 207D based, well, probably any and everything. I do not expect gifts and am happy to pay for the parts.

    Among other things it will tidy up the various holes that have been plugged when these bits were removed.

    Thank you in anticipation - I am happy to collect when in UK or pay post or carrier to my UK address.

    Clive (fingers crossed)

    Hi JJ,

    I tried registering with them ages ago but nothing has happened at all, have done a trawl on all the forums I could find and groups. Some are of course quite slow being part time by enthusiasts, some appear a little exclusive.

    I guessed this would probably be quite a good place as most of us belong to different things and have various acquaintances or friends sharing our interests on other groups and would say something along the lines of "Heh Fred, have you got that old xxxx in the back of your xxxx, some nutter on our forum is looking for xxxx"

    I am of course the consummate "nutter"

    Thank you for your quick suggestion, simply never got back to me.

    Cheers Clive

    Hi JJ,

    I'll put razor wire on the top. Preferred route for me now is Newhaven - Dieppe, and having matured get 20% off.

    that's what I found when I was a member of the Classic Hymer FB group.. even though they say ALL welcome..

    when I asked when does a van become a classic was told ..
    If your van isn't pre 1995 and a Merc.. it's not considered a 'classic.. ' and won't ever be..

    I even got a bollocking from admin for copy pasting part of a post on Fun ..without asking permission..

    so I left them to it..

    Clive, I'm sorry you haven't been able to join Classic Hymers, please would you like to try again.

    I am a member and it is a great place for help and advise. The group accepts any Hymer enthusiast whether they have a van or not and certainly, in my experience, does not discriminate against 'younger' vans. If you click on the Group Info button on the Facebook page it says it all more clearly than I can here.

    Hi Sparkly

    I will try them again later. I have tried more than once already, though of course it could be me doing something wrong repeatedly.

    Thank you

    Clive
