Just drive off and spontaneously stop where it is most beautiful. Regardless of campsites, enjoy the great outdoors and adventure on unpaved paths. Does that sound like a dream vacation to you? With a self-sufficient off-road camper, this dream becomes reality! But what actually characterizes a self-sufficient mobile home? We'll show you.
Have fun exploring: With your mobile home, you can drive comfortably off the beaten track and on unpaved roads.
Like to visit remote places: Your 4x4 camper will take you comfortably to hard-to-reach or remote places for hiking and exploring.
Are looking for pure nature with all its facets: In nature, your all-wheel drive camper is the starting point for unadulterated nature experiences in all weather.
Appreciate independence: In the self-sufficient off-road camper you are not dependent on external power and water sources or campsites for days.
Respect the environment: You use your own resources in the self-sufficient 4x4 motorhome and travel in an environmentally friendly manner.
With an all-wheel-drive motorhome, you not only buy the advantages of HYMER motorhomes, but also a love of discovery and freedom! Thanks to the structure of the vehicle, you are safe on the road even on rough terrain and, thanks to the permanent 4x4 drive, enjoy significantly increased traction and improved driving stability with more driving comfort - for guaranteed good grip on any terrain.
We have summarized all advantages and disadvantages for you here:
The equipment is in place, the goal is clear, now all you have to do is start driving! Thanks to off-road features such as all-wheel drive and off-road tires, there are no limits to your thirst for adventure. With permanent all-wheel drive and intelligent torque distribution (torque-on-demand), you can drive comfortably, safely, slowly and sensitively on demanding terrain.
The lift provides more ground clearance and fording depth in the HYMER all-wheel drive motorhome - a plus when driving on unpaved roads. An additional LED light bar above the driver's cab guarantees good visibility even in the deepest darkness. Your adventure journey into the unknown can begin!
In an offroad motorhome, you leave civilization behind, but not the comfort of travel. To prepare you for surprises, the HYMER CrossOver Edition models come with a tool kit that includes a folding shovel and an axe. There is plenty of storage space inside and under the large upper cabinets - and everything always stays organized thanks to the storage nets. The compressor refrigerator, on the other hand, has plenty of space for food. An additional advantage: the refrigerator also works on uneven terrain, does not depend on gas, is quiet and has a volume of up to 150 liters - perfect for self-sufficient camping in a four-wheel drive.
Important: wild camping, is not allowed everywhere. Especially in Central and Eastern Europe, parking a motorhome in places other than those reserved for it is prohibited and strictly controlled.
Camping in Finland and Scandinavia, i.e. temporary stay and e.g. erecting a tent is every man's right and therefore allowed. Similarly, you can also park your four-wheel-drive motorhome, for example, on the side of the street or at the end of it or in a public parking area, as long as traffic is not disturbed, the stay does not cause harm to the actual land use and there are no special stay bans in force in the area. Local people and tourist offices will help you find suitable parking places.
As a general rule, the campsite must always be left in a clean condition when leaving. It is best to find out exactly what the regulations are regarding wild camping in your destination country before you travel.
By the way: Whether in remote locations or in the city, the best protection against burglary and theft is essential. You can find valuable information on this in our guide to motorhome safety.
