Be sure to read the Practical Motorhome Hymer C-Class Classic 684 review before buying
Aside from that, the general high quality finish of the bodywork is indisputable. The aluminium skirts and swish graphics mean that even in its standard white finish, the Hymer looks good.
On the road
The cab seats are trimmed to match the rest of the interior but the cab electric pack is an optional extra, so check yours has this upgrade, because it adds an extra £1850 to the list price.
Lounging & dining
The two dinettes can be combined to make an enormous transverse double bed, which is not an option in some rivals.
Seat base locker storage is good, but Hymer’s provision of the elasticated magazine rack is a little gimmicky for our tastes. More useful is the slim locker that runs underneath the floor of the ‘van. Although it has been designed with the ski storage requirements of our Continental cousins in mind, it’s still a good place for stashing fishing rods, ramps and other miscellany that has no obvious storage place.

The Hymer oozes class and has a definite air of quality about all of its fixtures and fittings, but when you factor in all the added costs it begins to seem a little over-priced.
- A beautiful exterior, stylish washroom and a enormous transverse double bed
- The high specification, such as the cab electric pack, and the attractive design come at a price: £2100 in fact.
