    Eriba Car

    I have often seen and admired Eriba Caravans on campsites, if we ever go back to "tin tent tugging" I would be tempted to get one but while we were on holiday we saw an Eriba Car, which basically looked like an Eriba Caravan with an engine. I couldn't get a photo as I was driving at the time but I have googled it and found the picture attached.

    Has anyone else seen one of these? I don't think there can be many around in this country as it's the first time I have seen one.

    Hi Graham,
    Erich Bachem,(eriba) does indeed make a range of motor caravans sold through his old chum Erwyn Hymer. But they carry the Eriba trade mark.There are a few over here. they are built using Bachems unique tubular frame, giving strength and lightness and a long working life. the body shell is molded like a romahome. Lovely vehicles. Erich Bachem designed Rockets for the third reich.An interesting couple.

      Ian, thanks for that, you are a mine of information!! Is there anything you don't know about?

      It certainly looked a lovely little van, maybe we will get an owner on here one day.

          Hi Graham
          The Eriba caravan certainly has a long life as my one proves it is 34 years old, very light 760 Kg and easy to move by hand when unhooked. It is also wired for 12volt and 230volts

            There was one on E-bay which I was watching when my Frisky popped up and I went for the Frisky. I couldn't afford the Eriba, but it's one I'd look for next time I change.

              I'd rather have your Friskey, Caz!! I know the Eribas are nice, but I think they are really overpriced for what they are.

                Eriba camper van owner

                I have a Renault Traffic Eriba camper van, 1990. It's a great van and the third bed has been converted into a wardrobe. I understand there are only seven right-hand drives of these vans in this country - at least that's what the owner of another of these vans told me when we were on the same camp site.

                  We saw one at Cheddar Gorge camp site last year, we thought it was great, had a retro look about it,

                    Hi there new to site, just googled Eriba car and this thread came up. I've owned a 1990 3 berth for 20 months now I love it, they are a tad expensive but are very well built (Hymer) and very reliable. I've seen a couple but only on ebay. There's one on at the moment if your interested!

                      Hi Rustiic,
                      First of all a warm welcome to the site, hope you stick around and that you can come and join us 'in person' at a meet...... The Eriba vans look good to me, relatively rare, I think I've seen more renaults about in the UK, is that what you've got?
                      They strike me as really strongly built and distinctive too! Look forward to saying hello one day.
                      All the best
                      Andyvan:so happy:

                          That's only a tiddler, our caravan is longer than that and they won't let us escape from here!!! Welcome to the forum, the 'and friends' applies to you, I can assure you that you will be warmly welcomed to any of the meets!

                            I've seen them too and was very impressed. Can't even afford an eriba let alone an eribacar
