    Thanks for the information.
    On listening it seems that Hymer AG leased the Hymer Brands to the Hymer USA and have since pulled the leases and as we already knew, put them under the Thor Group umbrella.
    I was speaking about this a couple weeks ago with a Travelworld representative and he told me that the Thor deal with Hymer AG, was a sort of merger and not a complete buy out!

    I think this is bad news for the people who have purchased Hymer vehicles built in the USA as they will be losing the warranty.

    Regarding Hymer warranty.
    My direct experience is as good as it gets!
    I or we, had a very good warranty experience in Germany at the main factory service centre, and here Travelworld up to now have been equally good!
    Far different from what we often read about UK Companies

    They have but their vehicle warranty still stands, and they will have individual warranties for most of their habitation equipment. But there are problems if you have a Mercedes chassis.

    I bought my van without a manufacturers warranty, but Renault covered the base vehicle from the date they sold it to the builder.

    Standard practice we did the same when supplying to coachbuilders and folk who made refrigerated vans

    The failing of Hymer USA is a situation perhaps more common than people think the same thing happened in the UK with Nissan

    If Piper aircraft are any precedent in the USA Piper aircraft was sold for a dollar but the buyer picked up all its product liabilities, hopefully the same with Hymer in the states

    It won't happen Andrew, the Hymer Brands have already transferred to Thor!
    They were only on lease to the company Roadtrek
