The word ‘iconic’ has been over-used down the years, but if ever a caravan deserved the description, the Eriba does.

Once built in France, the brand now belongs to Germany’s giant Hymer group. While much has changed in the industry, time seems to have stood still at Eriba. Despite a few tweaks, the basic design has been altered little in more than 50 years.

The pugnacious bullet shape resembles a scaled-down Airstream, particularly in its smart new silver hues. The roof still pops up and the inner framework is still made from tubular steel. It’s a breeze to tow and store, and the incredible build quality still slackens jaws.

Your jaw will drop when you see the asking price, too, but this kind of build quality isn’t cheap.
