Taking comfort to the next level: the HYMERCAR Grand Canyon S with pop-top roofIt was only last year that HYMER was the first mass-production manufacturer to present a camper van on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis. The long-established Swabian company has come up with something even better for this year’s Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf: with the new HYMERCAR Grand Canyon S model, HYMER is presenting the first pop-top roof for camper vans on this base vehicle. As a result, the company has a vehicle among its ranks that offers even more comfort and flexibility with two extra berths – despite its compact dimensions – and which can be used in even more versatile ways.
HYMER is enhancing the premium HYMERCAR Grand Canyon S vehicle with a practical pop-top roof, improving the successful model on a Mercedes-Benz chassis as a result. This model combines the advantages of a camper van with the comfort of a motorhome and features a number of impressive safety and driver assistance systems, as well as a high-quality furniture concept. With compact dimensions of 5.93 metres in overall length and 2.03 metres in width, the HYMERCAR Grand Canyon S provides the perfect mix of flexibility and comfort. “The continuous development and improvement of our vehicles – also due to the continuously high level of demand in this product category – is very important to us. With the new pop-top roof for the Grand Canyon S, we’ve developed the model in such a way that we can now reach out to an even bigger target group with the bonus of two extra berths,” says Jochen Hein, Managing Director of Hymer GmbH & Co. KG.
Featuring a double bed, the pop-top roof ensures a restful night’s sleep. Unrivalled levels of sleeping comfort are offered by the cold foam mattress including sprung mattress, which measures 200 x 128 cm. Thanks to the extra berths that have been gained, you can now also use the vehicle as a group or family. The new sleeping area can be easily reached thanks to the wide access from the side between the seating area and cab, and the three windows – two of which can be opened completely – guarantee the perfect view and optimum air circulation. Additional protection from unwanted guests is provided by the integrated fly screens, and the fitted blinds keep things dark, even after daybreak. The integrated LED reading light illuminates the sleeping area at night. Thanks to its streamlined and aerodynamic design, the vehicle’s new pop-top roof doesn’t have any impact on the handling characteristics whatsoever, whilst simultaneously ensuring a modern appearance.
The HYMERCAR Grand Canyon S with pop-top roof will be available from dealers from the beginning of 2018.
