Classic Hymer restoration

I own a small fleet of classic Hymer S class motorhomes which I hire out through my other company West Yorkshire Motorhome Hire. This has given me a wealth of knowledge through restoring and repairing them. I can also source parts which are increasingly hard to come by. I can assist in virtually all repairs on these classic motorhomes, and as they are BY FAR my favourite classic motorhome I would love to hear from you!

Although these motorhomes are built like a tank they do have some common problems so having someone look at it that works on these vehicles regularly is a good idea. As I am a mobile repair technician I can come to you or you could visit my workshop near Keighley West Yorkshire.

Common jobs are:-

Gas conversion to 50Mbar to 30Mbar
Gas & Electrical system safety check and installations
Damp repairs
Fridge repairs
Floor delamination
Window repairs
Wooden dashboard Repairs
I can also make alterations and repairs to interior furniture

To name but a few!

I am a member of the classic Hymers Facebook group which is a friendly UK based group for fellow ‘hymerholics’!

Here are some examples of my work

Hymer S555 rear panel damp repair.


This Hymer S660 required quite extensive resealing due to water ingress. All the rear habitation windows were completely removed and had new hardwood window mounts installed as the old ones had rotted away!

This Hymer S560 required a new front dashboard installing. As you can see its been replaced with ¾” marine plywood. This not only acts as sound proofing but it will also last a great deal longer than the original, a quick sand and seal and it will be on it’s way!

Another hugely common problem on classic S class Hymers is water ingress around the driver side cab window. Once the cause of the problem is repaired a new wall board (we can source the original) is required.

Here is the end result all ready to be carpeted to the customers specification!
