With the ML-T, Hymer has been addressing comfort-conscious adventurers for years. AUTO BILD REISEMOBIL is testing the lavishly equipped CrossOver special model with all-wheel drive and high level of self-sufficiency.
The ML-T brings self-sufficiency and adventure
Studded tires, lifts by almost eight centimeters, additional LED headlights – the Hymer ML-T 570 CrossOver looks like adventure.

That’s him: A straight through as compact Comfort mobile for two who value a plus in self-sufficiency – and the special appearance. With studded tires, raised by almost eight centimeters, additional LED headlights and the spare wheel mounted on the rear he looks a lot like adventure. There are also neon yellow decorative stripes on the silver paintwork – almost progressive for a motorhome. The interior design, however, has in common with its serial brother. Dominates here classic wood look in dark shades; no trace of NeoPep. It’s a shame, but it’s cozy. Ambient LEDs bathe everything in soft light, and the upholstery is very comfortable.

The CrossOver is more down-to-earth inside than outside
Inside, the Hymer ML-T 570 CrossOver offers four seats and three beds.

He has: Immediately to the left of the entrance is a practical cloakroom, to which the two rotating pilot seats, a multi-adjustable table and the L-shaped bench are connected. This is followed by the easy-care bathroom with swivel wall, opposite the compact kitchen with cooker-sink combination and Slimtower compressor refrigerator. There’s in the stern two single beds and plenty of storage space in cupboards and the rear garage. Two airbags, electric tank emptying and other things are standard, goodies such as the MBUX multimedia system, adaptive cruise control, automatic air conditioning, panoramic roof windows, awnings, fitted sheets, roof rails and much more are part of the edition package. This is how he drives: With the standard top engine and the assistance systems comfortable and safe like a car. The overview is also thanks to the excellent rear view camera very good, the operation self-explanatory. Despite the studded tires, the interior is very quiet. The increased ground clearance relaxes ambitious off-road drivers, but the rear overhang sets limits at some point. So you shouldn’t go too high-spirited – The only thing that saved us in the sand was the longitudinal lock.
