Eriba Caravans are manufactured by Hymer Caravans, a German firm that has over 50 years experience in design, build and caravan distribution. The very word Hymer has become synonymous with quality caravans in Germany.
Eriba Ltd is the appointed UK agent for the Eriba touring range. The family run business is based on the edge of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire and has over twenty years of experience with the product range.
Not often seen on British roads, Eriba's unique pop-top design mark these distinctive and compact tourers out from the crowd. Their extremely low towing weights and compact size means they can be towed by most small cars.
The first Eriba caravan was conceived over half a century ago in 1957. It was built using the AERO system - a tubular steel frame as the skeleton of the structure which provided a rigid, secure foundation.
Eriba tourers have stood the test of time and are still made using the same construction method developing a reputation good longevity and re-saleability.
Light MTPLM weights and a low centre of gravity make them both aerodynamic and easier to tow, being light enough to handle manually.
Known for their compact configurations and unique pop-top roof design, Eriba models include fixed double bed and multi single berth layouts. The mini classic Eriba Puck is charmingly unique and the light unladen weight make it a perfect towing match for small cars.
The Eriba Familia marque is the second range to feature the elevating roof design with practical, sturdy interiors in either two or three berth layouts.
The Eriba Triton marque remains compact but with more family layouts, offering a wider range of tourers from the two berth Triton 420 to the four berth 418 and 430 models.
Offering a fixed bed in a the pop-top market, the Eriba Troll range offers a more luxurious finish with higher specification interiors and better furnishings.
