    I have had a 1993 Hymer for 15 months now – love it.

    Have read and re-read you blog. Currently thinking about a charger upgrade to but expensive and I have moved down the priority list.

    Would like to ask what speaker system you changed to ? Mine dreadful and I’d love to sort.

    Once again love what you have wrote – describes owning an older Motorhome to a tee !

      Thanks for the kind comment Jo.
      The priorities for the Hymer are always changing for me as well. The charger is a bit of an expense and if you go to campsites a lot a nice new charger may not be required.
      The sound system in our motorhome is a bit of a cobbling together of components. I got a second-hand car stereo on eBay for a fiver and a second-hand amplifier for about £25. I then got some good speakers – about 100W and fitted them on the dash.
      The sound is great but even though I have put in all the soundproofing and can have a conversation with passengers in the back, music still has to be up very loud to hear it properly – the engine noise kills the low-end base.
      These old buses are a bit like tractors. Still love it though.
      If you are not a member already, a look on the classic Hymer facebook page will give you some ideas for a good sound system as well as a wealth of other information. Can’t recommend highly enough.

    Thanks – have been considering the classic Facebook group – I’ve just avoided Facebook all my life is the issue.
    Anyway thanks for the reply and another big thumbs up on the excellent read

    Thank you for a good, honest, and pragmatic blog post, and where is your blog covering things to check when buying a Hymer, please?
