Hello

A cousin of my wife wants to buy a used m/h and likes the quality of our 1992 Hymer S670, but it's too old for her. She is leaning towards a medium/larger B series Hymer and has asked us to help her find the right one which we're happy to do.

Where can we find the manufacturers specs for Hymer B series from about 2000 onwards please, also layouts if possible?

Thanks

Thanks Jim that's useful

I thought a few years ago I had found a Hymer Germany archive with the specs on all models going back to year dot, but no luck after searching for a while this evening, can't find anything beyond current models.

I have a Hymer 2003 catalogue but it's in German and a bit big to upload. I could clip out the B-class layout pages if you like and upload them. Tomorrow - not tonight! Let me know if you want these.

The German site Mobile.de has so many vans for sale with good descriptions and plenty of photos if you search on there and look through the results you should get a good idea of layout and spec over many model years.

Hope is helps.

For information, the Classic range was slightly lower specified than the Star-Line or B-Klasse ranges. The Mercedes-based Classics (B-Classic M) are not very common, most standard B-Classics are on a Fiat Ducato base. As well as the spec differences, they are built on the original Fiat chassis whereas the more expensive B-Klasse are built on an Alko rear chassis bolted to the Fiat front end. This allows for a double floor construction that came in around 1999/2000 (some earlier B-Klasse had a single floored Alko rear chassis).
The Star-Line models have the same internal spec as the B-Klasse but they are more expensive as they are built on a Sprinter base. Obviously, one of the key differences between the Fiat and Mercedes bases is that the latter are rear-wheel drive, so there are no twin-axled layouts. The bigger Star-lines (680 and 700) are built on a 413/416 chassis with GVW of 4,600 Kg. The smaller ones (630, 640) are built on a 313/316 chassis with 3,800 kg GVW.
Contrary to popular opinion (in some quarters) the single-floored Star-Lines (and Classics) are properly winterised. The fresh tank and all pipe work are internal and the external waste tank is insulated and heated by the Truma. The 'single' floor is not simply a sheet of timber - it is a sandwich of PU foam between two layers of marine-grade ply.
