If you’ve been perusing Instagram lately, chances are that you’ll have spotted Hymer’s Vision Venture concept floating around. This beautiful adventuremobile is based on the new Sprinter and has a lot to brag about, including features such as four-wheel drive, an inflatable pop-top, a redesigned body, and more than 20 innovative materials from BASF which make it lighter and better insulated than any camper of its kind. Materials like their “ultra-resilient” paintwork with Chromacool technology reduce the surface temperature of the vehicle by 20°C (68°F) and that of the interior by up to 4°C (39°F). Yet, none of that inspired us to write this story. What really blew us away was the unreal interior design, which looks more like a million-dollar tiny-home than an RV. It takes space efficiency to the extreme by incorporating clever multi-function design elements but then combines it with superb styling and quality components.
Custom panoramic windows give an unparalleled view of your surroundings while letting natural light in to open things up. The kitchen and storage drawers double as stairs to the bedroom, a rear deck folds out for additional exterior living space, and there’s a slide-out grill for when you want to entertain or have an outdoor cooking experience. Back inside you’ll also find a collapsible table in the rear dinette, which stores away to optimize living space when you don’t need it. Quite possibly one of the most impressive aspects, if you can really single out such a thing in this build, is Hymer’s wet bath conversion, which swaps between a surprisingly spacious bathroom to a shower in moments.
If you’re wondering where you can sign for one, I’m sad to say that this amazing concept isn’t for sale. Despite being a model for what RV’s could look like in 2025, there’s no indication that Hymer would bring it into production thus far. Still, there’s a lot to be learned from this van’s design, so I hope that professional and home builders alike are paying attention. If they are, it could certainly lead to some amazing vehicles rolling out in the next few years. And if they’re not, well, at least we can still look at this van and dream.
