Hymer (Tallulah)

I don't want to sell, but it makes no sense to keep Tallulah any longer, as family circumstances prevent us using her. It's time for someone else to enjoy her as much as we have.


Featured on TV (Andy Harris's excellent show on the Motorhome Channel), and in 'Alt Opel' German magazine, and also MMM magazine.


Original condition, full history:
Manufactured in 1978, and owned by Wolfgang B. on 12th Sept, sold to Dieter L. on 24th March 1982. Sold and imported from Germany to the UK by Fredrick N. in south London on 29th Sept, 1986. Documents show kms in 1987 at 72713. In UK it was kept in a dry garage 28 years, with annual trip to Germany, I believe. We bought from Fredrick N's widow 9th March 2013.


Tallulah comes with original import papers and other documents, including MOT certificates since 2011. Odometer shows currently at 61449. I believe this is 161449, but it could be 261449. According to previous owner, the engine was reconditioned at around 4k kms ago, and a 5-speed ZF gearbox was fitted.
