Like all Hymer owners, your van is your pride and joy. Every time you pull into your driveway, you give your van a quick once over to make sure it looks good. But have you thought about how fragile your headlights are? They make up a large portion of the front of your van and you expect them to be strong, but that us not the case.
All it takes is a small stone to bounce up off the road and shatter your headlights. It may not be too much of a problem if you are just travelling a few miles away for the weekend. However, imagine crossing the English Channel into France and driving south into Spain and your headlight just explodes. You may think that it won't happen to you but it is more common than you think.
You could check every Hymer forum on the web to see that shattered headlights are a popular topic. But what's the big deal? Just get them repaired right? With the shape of the headlight being so unique, they can only be repaired and ordered from Hymer dealers and the costs are over £1000 minimum!
With the long Easter weekend coming up, make sure you protect your Hymer with headlight covers. You can find them on eBay, Amazon, or at the exclusive supplier TheLazeeCamper.co.uk
