Erwin Hymer Group win two iF Design Awards

Two leisure vehicles from the Erwin Hymer Group – the Grand Canyon S campervan and the Eriba Touring Colour Editions caravans – have won iF Design Awards 2024 in the automobiles/vehicles category.

The iF Design Award is a prestigious award. In an evaluation process lasting several days, 132 independent, leading design experts assessed over 10,800 entries in a wide range of disciplines.  

The design of the vehicles was assessed on the basis of the five criteria of idea, form, function, differentiation and impact. Both models did particularly well on account of their innovative design and aesthetics. The Eriba Touring Colour Editions also benefited from the assessment that their design made them truly stand out from the competition. The Hymer Grand Canyon S was praised by the jury for its independent, self-sufficient travel concept in particular. 

The Eriba Touring Colour Editions have given the design of the Eriba Touring cult caravan a complete makeover. The traditional model with its highly characteristic, aerodynamic body shape, which has been in production for over 60 years, is available in a choice of three different vibrant colours: the “Nugget Gold”, “Tango Red” and “Harbour Blue” special models combine the authentic retro look of the caravan with a modern twist – true to the Eriba slogan “Anything but ordinary”. 

The latest edition of the Grand Canyon S camper van model is not only a true “smart home” on wheels, but also set new standards in independent and sustainable travel. The Hymer lithium Smart Battery system guarantees a long-lasting power supply, while the 90-litre compressor refrigerator and diesel heater allow campers to be largely independently of gas on their travels. When it comes to comfort and design, however, the Grand Canyon S is also truly impressive: inspired by the exclusive Hymer Venture S off-roader, premium panels on the windows and doors, a new four-level lighting concept with individually adjustable light temperature as well as two new interior design style collections ensure that the camper van feels comfortable and homely inside. 

“Innovation, function, and quality have always been our top priorities,” said Christian Bauer, President of Hymer GmbH & Co. KG. “Our well thought-out and future-oriented product design fully reflects these central aspirations of Hymer and Eriba. The fact that we won not one, but two iF Design Awards this year underscores our expertise and our success as a leading supplier in the premium RVing and motorhome segment. I would like to congratulate all the teams involved at Hymer and Eriba as well as our design partner, STUDIOSYN. The award recognizes their dedication and creativity.”
