HYMER DuoMobil

The concept

Made for two.

The HYMER DuoMobil – a motorhome that is completely tailor-made for couples travelling alone!

The HYMER DuoMobil is as cosy and comfortable as a holiday home, and as mobile as a motorhome! Developed in collaboration with the Schleinkofers, the HYMER DuoMobil offers a range of equipment features and functions which make it the ideal vehicle for a holiday for two. It is therefore THE perfect holiday home for couples who want to be flexible on their travels without having to compromise on comfort.

What makes the HYMER DuoMobil special?

The most uncomfortable area in a motorhome is usually the cab. It goes without saying that every effort is made to disguise and improve the look of the dashboard – but the cab is, and will always remain, a cab. Wouldn’t it be great if you could seal off the cab from the rest of the living area when you arrive at your destination – or better yet, integrate it into the living area!

The facts also speak for themselves – you either need the cab or a bedroom in the motorhome, but never both together. After all, you can’t drive and sleep at the same time!

In the HYMER DuoMobil, the cab is converted into a comfortable bedroom very easily and quickly at the pitch or campsite. The easy-to-access multifunctional fold-down bed with single bed function is the comfortable centrepiece of the sleeping area, which can also be completely separated from the cab by a sliding door underneath the fold-down bed to create an even more homely atmosphere.

For undisturbed privacy, the bedroom and bathroom including separate shower and dressing area can be partitioned off from the living area by a fixed door.

Thanks to the dual function cab/bedroom and the space that this saves, more room is left for the cooking and living area, where people spend most of their time in any case. The huge U-shaped seating group situated in the rear of the vehicle with windows on all sides for the perfect all-round panoramic view is made for spending an entertaining evening in good company with friends, for curling up with a magazine from time to time, or enjoying the privilege of watching your own TV when it’s raining.

The spacious kitchen with plenty of worktop space and the up to 160-litre refrigerator leave amateur chefs with nothing to desire.

Despite the huge rear seating area, thanks to the double floor and the sideboard integrated in the rear, the HYMER DuoMobil features a very spacious garage which can be easily accessed from both sides and “swallows up” most bicycles with ease.

The vehicles available as HYMER DuoMobil:

The HYMER DuoMobil is currently offered in two models – one of which is also available as a 3.5-ton vehicle:

HYMER DuoMobil 534

The DuoMobil 534 has an innovative lightweight construction and with a length of 6.99 m remains under the 3.5-ton limit. The narrower bodywork and elegant exterior design lend the motorhome a sporty, automotive character. But the HYMER DuoMobil 534 offers premium equipment and comfort, which is also highlighted by the high-quality furniture with a lightweight construction as well as the stylish furniture finish inside the vehicle.

The HYMER DuoMobil: turning vision into reality.

After some less than positive experiences on their holiday travels, Heidi and Lothar Schleinkofer decided to design a motorhome specially for couples which would reflect the needs and wishes of this target group as a whole.

In light of this, in 2009 the couple developed a detailed concept that took into account a countless number of their ideas and years of experience, and which was subsequently turned into reality by a renowned manufacturer of motorhomes. The outcome was an alcove motorhome especially for couples travelling alone, which was first launched at the CMT 2011, attracting great attention in the motorhoming world. In 2012 it was voted 2nd in the Motorhome of the Year awards by readers of the specialist magazine promobil.

After that pilot project came to an end, the pair also conducted umpteen interviews and compared notes with other caravaners and motorhomers to canvas their views on the “couple-friendly motorhome”. After meticulously collecting and analysing their demands, requirements and wishes, the Schleinkofers came to the conclusion that it was time for a new improved version of the vehicle.

HYMER, the right partner for fine-tuning.

The go-ahead for the successful collaboration was given at the Caravan Salon 2013.

With a new concept in mind, Heidi and Lothar set about finding a manufacturer with the necessary know-how and expertise to perfect their vision. The aim was to adapt the concept from an alcove vehicle to an integrated motorhome. The decision to go with HYMER was clinched at the Caravan Salon 2013, where the go-ahead was given for their joint project. Afterwards, the Schleinkofers held regular meetings with the project team, composed of staff from the product management and design departments along with engineering and development specialists.

Together they came up with a brand new motorhome concept, building on the Schleinkofers’ practical insights from the previous project and refining it by drawing on HYMER’s years of know-how and wide experience in motorhome development and production.

The first HYMER DuoMobil was unveiled to the public at the Caravan Salon 2014. It had countless fans in no time at all, and many more HYMER DuoMobil motorhomes have been handed over to their proud and delighted owners since then.

The success story of the HYMER DuoMobil continues.

The concept of the HYMER DuoMobil became an unparalleled success story industry-wide and is being continued. The premium motorhome for two has been joined by a compact companion weighing under 3.5 tons in the form of the HYMER DuoMobil 534. The HYMER DuoMobil 534 is characterised by its stylish and innovative lightweight construction furniture concept, as well as its dynamic exterior design.

The HYMER DuoMobil is therefore currently available in the following versions:

  • HYMER DuoMobil 534
  • HYMER DuoMobil 634

There was nothing but excitement and joy during the tour of the first ever HYMER DuoMobil.
