Homer the Hymer

We travel in our 1999 Hymer B544 named by us as Homer for a few reasons as explained in a blog. It has a 2.8 diesel engine, is just over 6m long and has a max weight of 3,400 kg. We enjoy the layout it provides for us with its drop down bed which we can leave made up, a good dining area, a bathroom we have used for showers when on aires, the kitchen is adequate but doesn’t have an oven but we are contemplating investing in a double skillet. It has the capacity to carry six people with seat belts, we find it reasonably economical often returning 29 mpg, it doesn’t burn oil and although you can’t claim it to be speedy we get places in the end. We don’t yet have a solar panel or refill gas bottles but these are on our to do list.

Update March 2020.

We went for a Remoska instead of a double skillet and that has proved to be worth its weight in gold.

We have fitted one 11kg Gasit refillable bottle and carry a 6kg normal bottle as back up. I connected them so that I have a switch over valve.

Currently in the process of fitting a 120w solar panel.
