Hymer Car 302 Streetline: Motorhome test

Only a few motorhomes manage to successfully combine leisure and everyday life. The little camper from Hymer is at home in the tiny niche between VW California and Pössl. The Hymer Car 302 was a new attraction with entry-level prices starting at EUR 28,290. Then it was pretty naked too. Our photo vehicle from the mobile home gallery in Hohenaspe has all kinds of equipment packages that are subject to a surcharge and which significantly increase travel comfort and the price.

That’s him: An all-rounder from a good company. At just 4.99 meters in length, the recreational vehicle from Bad Waldsee tries one optimal compromise between everyday quality and high recreational value to offer. Atypical for the industry, the fully glazed bus version of the Fiat Ducato. Externally, decorative accents strive for a van-like look. After ten years and 55,000 kilometers, the condition is gratifying. We discover neither rust problems nor oil leaks. Smaller quirks in the interior are typical in tightly packed, smaller motorhomes and can hardly be avoided.

The front-facing Vario bench is pleasantly contoured and features two seats, three-point seat belts and a folding table. In theory, the Hymer can also be used as a mobile office or as a replacement for a family station wagon. The version we tested offers two berths in the rear.
