    I imagined so. It was bloody freezing on our way down. The jaca route and then east and down to Tarragona. He will be lonely without you this year

    I'm interested as to why you recommend a pre-1998 model?

    outside temp here about 10c but did go to 15.3 while the sun was shining on the temp pick up.
    but has been abit drizzle now and again.
    as to early conversions they did seem to make them abit more sturdy back then and simpler to fix etc.
    rmb or tabbert would be what i would be looking for if i couldnt self build .
    but self build gives you just what you want . no compromise.

    The build quality was not as good after 1998 and you can get rid of a lot of that depreciation.
    I did go into detail but deleted it. We all have reasons for living in what we live in and why we choose them.I did look into hymers for fulltiming in amongst other things and had a 544 for 5 years.Glad I went down the conversion route ,after a year of looking at plastics , it was the best thing I ever did.

    If you are on Facebook there is a group Classic Hymer’s.
    Some of the older Hymer’s are appreciating in value, not depreciating, costing serious money.

    I have a 2004 B754 which is 7.5m long with a fixed French bed (corner cut off) at the rear.

    There's plenty of room in it for the girlfriend and I and her cat but I don't know if it could take 2 dogs. I suppose it'd depend on how docile the dogs were.

    I don't think you can go wrong buying a Hymer. They are well thought out and well made.

    If you are still thinking about going fulltime, this needs work, but has a onboard generator, and a gas tank for heating etc.
    No need for finding and carrying bottles abroad.
    If I hadn’t a motorhome already, and wanted to go fulltime I would be looking at this.
