Hi we have a new-to-us two year old Hymer Nova 580. It has squeaky beds. It seems to me to be the metal frame supporting the slatted bed base that is the problem. I have tried some silicone grease at the joints. It has perhaps helped a little, however, mainly it seems just lowered to squeak tone a bit. Does anyone else else have a similar problem? Has anyone any suggestions.
Me again. We have an Alko wheel lock fitted. Unfortunately, while the receiver is still there, apparently the Alko wheel lock went missing at the dealers. No one seemed to know the lock number.
I assume all all of these vans will have the same number lock. Maybe a poor assumption. Could you tell me your lock number and I may be able to get one.
We have the same arrangement. It’s too early to say how good a system it will be but we like the divide. Curtain seems robust. We seem to have less magnets in the door than on the curtain 3:5. Ive not looked yet but assumed these were stuck-on magnets. You say, however, they are recessed. I’ll check ours. if stuck on I thought of buying some from eBay.
I'm new to site and to a Hyper Nova 580 GL. I read your review and found it helpful. I agree with most if not all of it. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions.
Do your beds creak?
It seems to me the metal frame frame is not as firmly anchored as it should be. It is from it and the connection to the far side trunking that I think the squeaks come. I’ve tried putting silicone grease on it. It has helped a bit but it mainly just deepens the tone of the squeak.
We find the plywood base of one of the seats collapses. It slips off the ledge on which it should rest.
A good van but some niggles as you say. Thanks for your review.
