Hymer Nova 580: Obama-van?

Hymer Nova caravan
Most of the winners of the UK Which Caravan Awards 2009 are pretty mundane. But apparently not the German Hymer Nova. Indeed, one excitable judge exclaimed that this caravan had “more to say for itself than Barack Obama”.

The caravanning website Out & About Live was equally impressed. They reckon “The upholstery is probably the most supportive and comfortable we’ve ever encountered and the lighting—especially the ambient LED strips under the lockers—is exceptional.”

Steady on, guys! There’s nothing much revolutionary about the Nova range, apart from smart aesthetics on the outside and ‘moderne’ design on the inside. The furnishing scheme looks slick, using a ‘Toscana’ cherry wood finish with leather-look inlays. But the Nova 580 SL on sale in the UK sticks with a very conventional layout, with a U-shaped seating group at the front, twin beds, a washroom and a separate shower at the back.

You do get a ‘Lugano pear wood’ finish and a high gloss granite look for kitchen. But believe us, the Nova works better in pictures than in words. Enjoy.

Tabbert offers even more luxury with its avant garde, bad-ass Paganini model. Hymer’s own Forever Young has more style, with a retro tinge.
