Betty has a sibling – the HYMER AKTIV S – and I got to check her out at the 2019 FL RV Supershow.
This is how she stacks up –
Built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis – she comes in longer, taller and a wee bit narrower than the Promaster version. Sporting a new color palette, one that I like very much. The cabinetry is the same as the Aktiv 1.0’s but the fabrics are a soft dove grey instead of the beige/taupe that the original units came with. No longer are the walls covered in fabric, but rather a soft vinyl/leatherette, much easier for cleaning. The window treatments are also different as are the windows.
The kitchen has an induction cooktop instead of a gas cooktop, a sink with fold down faucet and a larger refrigerator. I REALLY LIKE this compressor refrigerator as it is has many new features which I think make a lot of sense. It is self venting and is contoured in the back to allow for a taller-than-on-the-ground installation . . . hello – no more sitting in the bathroom to see what’s for dinner 🙂 It also has a night time function, which switches it to a low usage mode making it easy on the electrical system and on the ear alike – it’s quieter – YAY double yay.
Much of the cabinetry is the same, with the exception of the rear, underbed drawers having been replaced by single cabinets. The bathroom is configured differently, being slightly wider with a different shaped cassette toilet. The bench seat in the dinette area is also smaller, with only 1 additional 3 point seatbelt.
I will be updating as I obtain more detailed information which was fairly limited at the show.
