    I’ve owned a Freedom but to date own an Eriba . The Freedom is a good starter small van but the quality of the Eriba wins hands down. The style is timeless and the build quality is second to none.

  2. Chris Neale says:

    How high is the go-pod? Will it fit in a standard garage (as the Trigan Silver does)?

  3. Gerald Freshwater says:

    Sorry to see you didn’t mention the new TripBuddy Anywhere; although not cheap, it really looks the business for touring, with a great payload (missing from most UK style caravans). I had hoped to see it, but couldn’t make the show.
    We have a large Jeep, so MTPLM is not a problem, but durability is, and the TripBuddy seems to fit the bill.

      Hi Gerald, we did look at the Tripbuddy caravans and agree they look fantastic but at this time we’re unable to provide cover.

    The Classic looks of the Eriba, is timeless and just won’t date and the re sale value would proof to be a better investment after five years, and huge selection of layouts helps, sure you pay more but with a still frame and alloy sides durable life is assured.

    See more and more small units now as people want to tour, not just stay put in one place, so easy to tow, perhaps that why in our storage yard so many large units seem never to move.

    We tow a Lunar venus 320 which is less than 5m shipping length. We were particularly interested in the 4 vans shown on your video. Even if it means having one leg amputated to pay for it, it has to be the Eriba.
    We are bias but the lunar venus comes next closest. Shame they are a discontinued model. Not everyone wants to tow a cruise liner. When you move up from a tandem with a 2 man tent a 10ft caravan is huge!

  6. Haydn says:

    Brilliant! We have a go-pod, so nice to be able to compare.

  7. Steve bell says:

    Good idea if you are on your own I still like the bigger van myself
