Hymer Revamps Camper Vans Based On Fiat Chassis

For the 2023 model year, Hymer gave the Fiat Camper Vans a major makeover. The previous design, which has been around for six years, will be replaced with revamped style and functionality aimed at targeting a new set of buyers. According to the German company, camping has undergone a fundamental change in image in recent years, with younger and novice motorcycle buyers expressing more interest.

Nonetheless, the Hymer Camper Van model range on Fiat chassis has been updated with design, user comfort and connectivity in mind. There will be four models, namely Ayers Rock, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone.

Hymer says the design and furnishings are getting an update, as is the installation and bodywork. Some insights and individual elements from the Hymer VisionVenture concept vehicle from 2019 were also incorporated into the overhauled camper van.

The new interior design with two distinct styles is one of the hallmarks of the updated Hymer Fiat Camper Vans. Cork, ceramic and solid surfaces are used for the natural look, while premium felt is used for thermal insulation and sound absorption. All Camper Van models come with touch-operated four-level lighting features to complete the cabin ambiance. There will also be a skylight feature in the cabin that enhances natural light and airflow.

The updated camper van lineup will also get smart upgrades like the Hymer Connect app. The app controls multiple vehicle components, plus the display of various vehicle information (such as fresh water fill level and gray water tank) in a single digital platform.

The Hymer Fiat Camper Vans will start at €67,900 or about $68,000 (at current exchange rates) for the Ayers Rock model. This ceilings at €71,400 (~$71,570) for the larger and more functional Yellowstone model.

Sales will begin in the spring of 2023 across Europe. It’s unclear when Hymer USA will start selling the revamped Fiat-based Camper Vans on American soil.
