And yet the result was a floor plan with fixed single beds in the rear. A fold-down bed can be booked at the front as an option for 1990 euros. With a length of just over seven meters, it has therefore not become as radically short as in semi-integrated vehicles that have a transverse bed in the rear or even only the pull-down bed above the semi-dinette.
The Tramp S 585 is the shortest of the Hymer Tramp S models
That’s him: The shortest of the four Tramp-S layouts. All others are 30 centimeters longer. In contrast to them, the toilet and shower in the 585 are not separated, but combined in one room via a swiveling wall. This solution enables a more compact design – together with the kitchen. With a maximum width of 97 centimeters in the other layouts, it is already quite small, but in the 585 it is eight centimeters narrower. While this saves space, it feels a bit cramped here due to the limited workspace. In addition, the depth of the lower pantry requires flexibility.

He has: A backbone from the standard Sprinter chassis. It doesn’t offer a false floor like the more expensive B-Class siblings, but the walkways from the driver’s cab to the kitchen are level and the water tanks are insulated and heated under the floor. The Truma diesel heater comes as standard, as does a compressor refrigerator, which is why at least a second built-on battery (450 euros) should be ordered for more self-sufficiency – the smart battery system with lithium batteries (from 1190 euros) would be even better. On the other hand, the classic equipment with absorber refrigerator, Truma gas boiler and gas locker for two eleven-kilo bottles costs only 290 euros more. And taller people will be pleased that instead of the floor-to-ceiling wardrobe there is also a bed that is 22 centimeters longer (350 euros).
