Our First European Motorhome – Hymer 544 “Classic Layout” – Ziggy

Why was our Hymer 544 Motorhome called Ziggy?

Several reasons all based around Germany:-

Hymers are made in Germany
Krys, my wife, was born in Germany
We will be spending a significant amount of time in Germany

We will be leading a nomadic or gypsy  lifestyle whilst in Germany and the German word for gypsy is Zigeuner  – hence “Ziggy” – we have Phil and Kay Davies from Wales to thank for the name

Ziggy with the silver screen on in summer to keep the sun out

Ziggy in winter – thank heavens the Hymer “A” class Motorhomes are fully winterised
