another camp 55 owner
We also have a Hymer Camp 55 from 1990, with the Fiat 2.5D and about 100,000 km on the clock.
All good except the Piezo ignition (clicker) on the fridge is duff - we took it to John's Cross last year ahead of a 5month tour, they said they'd fixed it, we trusted them, turned out they didn't and we went off without the gas fridge option.
I really should have checked it before we set off... regrets! But we had plenty of other stuff to to do... Also took it into Hymer dealership in Germany who didn't really help.
Anyway, we've learnt a few bits and bobs about our van in the last 2yrs of ownership. It cost us £5k, had a few issues, but all sorted now and we've got 75% LED lighting installed which helps save batt power.
Happy to share, learn or help where necessary.
See the first 5months of tour blog for some of the EU places 'Brian' took us to.
