One of the most prestigious manufacturers from each 
of its respective industries has joined forces to produce a range of motorhomes that offers something quite different from the rest of the competition.

The new Hymer ML-T line-up is based on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and was launched halfway through the 2014 season, so it was the first of Hymer’s 2015 collection to break cover.

The first sign of something new is, of course, the unmistakable and hard-to-miss Mercedes-Benz star logo (the three prongs represent land, sea and air), which takes pride of place at the front of the vehicle. (The typical Hymer logo built into the radiator grille has been eschewed).

This new range offers something quite distinct from Hymer’s Fiat Ducato-based motorhomes. For a start, the Sprinter base vehicle is rear-wheel-drive so it has different driving characteristics from a front-wheel-drive Ducato or Peugeot Boxer.

Two models are available: the ML-T 580 is the version with fixed twin beds, which is ideal for touring couples who would prefer to access the washroom during the night without having to disturb one another. The other model, the 560, offers a transverse fixed rear bed. Both models have an L-shaped front dinette, with midships kitchen and washroom.
