The Class B RV world is buzzing lately after the announcement of a cooperation agreement between Germany’s Erwin Hymer Group and Roadtrek from Kitchener Ontario. We’re just as curious as the next RV aficionados, and when we found ourselves at the Hymer booth at the 2015 RVIA show in Louisville, well, we had to ask them a few questions.
Of course, neither Stef nor I have any journalism training whatsoever. But we didn’t let that stop us! Fortunately, Jacqueline from Hymer was quite nice.
I expected Hymer to be a bit evasive and stick to their carefully worded press release, but Jacqueline and all of the Hymer representatives were very approachable and informative. I had a few questions that were suggested by our readers, and I was able to get all of them answered. I probably could have asked more and better follow up questions, were it not for my complete lack of journalistic skill.
But besides the good intel, they had a model of their Grand Canyon Class B RV on display. While we didn’t have the time for a full review of it, we did get quite a bit of footage which you’ll see in the video. The one thing I’m taking away from it is: The transverse bed can be done. It works. (I always thought it would work, and if I had built my own next RV, that’s what I would have done, so I was glad to see it brought to life.) Oh, and also – the wooden shower mat looks great (just like mine did)!
Hope you enjoy the video.
