Hymermobil B534 1991 Motor Caravan Nov 2004 – This review is of the 1991 UK right hand drive version of our 1992 Continental left hand drive Hymermobil B534. The engine is a 1900 cc Fiat Ducato whereas ours is 2500 cc with steering wheel gear change. Ours doesn’t have a combined oven/grill, otherwise the specification is fairly similar although the awning and door are on the off-side.

Those of you interested in the Hymer B534 may like to view this video we found on the Internet – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5xP35tbT0s
