The B-ML 880 impresses both inside and out with its stately dimensions. According to Christian Bauer, President of Hymer GmbH & Co. KG, “With our MasterLine series, we have managed to combine the collective expertise and strengths of our company in one vehicle. Now we have gone one better with the new 880 layout, which convinces with unique driving dynamics and can compete with the familiar Liner class in terms of comfort and equipment”.
Intelligent floor plan for exclusive living comfort
In the interior, this means an even more generous sense of space coupled with maximum storage space. The entrance door moves back to open up the space between the seating area and kitchen. The side couch is now 30 centimetres larger and the work surface of the corner kitchen – which comes with a premium mineral worktop as standard – has also been widened by 20 centimetres. This leaves space next to the cooker for a fully automatic coffee machine, for example. A second mid-height larder unit provides additional storage.
The B-ML 880 now comes with two wardrobes. The one in the living area can be used for outdoor wear, for example, while the roomy double-door one turns the luxurious bathroom into a walk-in wardrobe. The bathroom itself has a new floor plan, with the washbasin including mirror cabinet and integrated lighting now occupying a separate area next to the shower with real glass doors. This creates more space in the toilet area, which is equipped with an open shelf, towel radiator and additional window. For additional privacy, the living area can be separated from the sleeping area.
The 880 layout features two comfy single beds over two metres long and just under 90 centimetres wide at the rear of the vehicle, with a further under-bed wardrobe at the foot of each. A total of three floor hatches are provided for customers requiring extra storage space. The combination of the pale Grand Oak furniture finish, featuring elements in modern super-matt white, and the darker Velvet Ash creates a cosy and harmonious colour scheme throughout the living area, bathroom and kitchen. The pleasing ambience on board is further enhanced by the now dimmable multi-level ambient lighting on the overhead lockers, under the kitchen counter and on the skirting boards. The lighting throughout the vehicle can be operated conveniently via a central switch on the rear fold-down bed.
Unique outer design on a tandem axle
As the first vehicle in the Hymer portfolio with a tandem axle on an SLC chassis, this vehicle boasts not only a length of just under nine metres but also a gross vehicle weight of up to 5.5 tons plus huge payload reserves. In addition, it offers extra-stable handling and a level of driving comfort comparable with more compact motorhomes. In terms of bodywork, Hymer has opted for the proven combination of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis cowl with optional 177 hp diesel engine and SLC chassis. In conjunction with the new 6-speed manual gearbox or the 9-speed automatic transmission, this allows comfortable cruising speeds with maximum, low-noise engine smoothness and optimised fuel consumption. Assistance systems such as Active Brake Assist or DISTRONIC Active Distance Assist also ensure a high degree of safety. With its spacious double floor, the chassis provides ample space for all technical components, while the interior offers a headroom of 1.98 metres thanks to the level floor.
Along with the large, panoramic windscreen, the front section is a real highlight. The visible edges pick up the lines of the headlights and carry them into the extended side contour. The slightly arrow-shaped front section integrates the wheelbase perfectly. The sporty, exclusive appearance is further underlined by the high-quality black grille, glossy radiator frame with chrome trim and LED fog lights. Completing the motorhome’s sleek exterior is the 3D GRP rear, including integrated rear light moulding and self-supporting garage casing with a sporty diffuser look.
The Hymermobil B-Class MasterLine 880 will be available from the beginning of 2020.
