HYMER opens up a new dimension in mobile hol- idays with the development of the “Caravano” in 1961. This panel van was to lay the foundations both for the company and the category of com- pact leisure vehicles. Thanks to its easy manoeu- vrability, compact outer dimensions and seating arrangement, the camper is suitable not just for holidays, but also for weekend trips or everyday use as a second car – and that goes especially for the compact models of the HYMERCAR range. Our potted history charts the key stages of this success story from the early days through its fascinating evolution.
