Our van is only just over 3 years old and the paint/coating is bubbling off the front bumper of our hymer! I sent pictures to the dealer who says it’s out of warranty. As it’s paint work on the base vehicle and is obviously a major fault I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen

It’s now started really blistering and I think will start peeling off soon.

Do any of you knowledgeable folk have any suggestions that would save us the cost of a complete repaint

Here are some pictures, although it’s worse than this now. These are what I sent to the dealer.

After three years I don't think there would be any redress. Take it to a body shop and get a quote.

Doesn't look like a paint problem to me from the photos it looks like the gel coat is blistering assuming it is the white finish that is blistering.
Over a year out of warranty probably not much joy with a dealer it depends how much clout your dealer has with Hymer, I've had things done out of warranty but our Belgium dealer has a lot of clout with Hymer.
I would be inclined to contact Hymer direct and see what they say.

If no luck I know an excellent GRP boat repair man in the Chichester area, did a superb job on my last Hymer after I crunched it.
