Hymer launches new CW Crafter-based ERIBA Car campervan at CMT 2024

The Erwin Hymer Group has launched a VW Crafter-based, ‘new product generation’ ERIBA Car campervan that it says ‘sums up the idea of ​​the iconic caravan brand ERIBA’.

It is available in three bi-colour exterior colour variants and different interior materials. The ERIBA Car is 5.99m long with a rear transverse bed, centre kitchen and washroom, and a front lounge.

For six decades, ERIBA has been synomynous with a timeless spirit of a carefree road trips with the cult ERIBA Touring caravan series. The latest product from ERIBA is designed to follow this recipe for success.

With the ERIBA Car, Hymer has created a VW-based camper van which it describes as visually reminiscent of the cult caravans from the 60s.  

ERIBA provides an answer to all those who want a camper that offers both: the unique character of the cult brand with maximum flexibility. 

“There are not many caravan manufacturers who not only produce vehicles, but also tell a story,” says Frank Heinrichsen, Head of Overall Marketing at Hymer GmbH & Co. KG. “From the very beginning, ERIBA has been surrounded by this unique narrative of freedom, individuality and refreshing coolness. Without losing any of that, with the ERIBA Car we are now showing that the company has not only grown, but also grown up.” 

The bi-colour exterior colours in deep ocean, cherry red or indium gray metallic ensure an individual look outside of the standards and are visually reminiscent of the ERIBA Touring series. 

The interior has an open and spacious feeling, thanks to a clear line of sight and an open shelf above the kitchen. Modern materials as well as the harmonious “Deep Ocean” material world with anti-fingerprint and matching dark “Tiberino” furniture decor are complemented by a yacht-look floor and thus contribute to an extraordinary living ambience. The interior is rounded off by a lighting concept with a combination of direct and indirect light. Thanks to the dimming function, the ambience inside can be individually adjusted. 

With a bed size of 200 cm x 136 cm, there is also space for taller people. Disc springs ensure additional sleeping comfort. A personal touch can also be added to the interior thanks to the choice between the two standard fabrics “Toledo Sand” and “Seattle Stone” and two types of leather “Dayton Cognac” and “Boston” with matching living room cushions and decorative stitching to match the selected exterior color. The ERIBA Car also comes with a large selection of original accessories such as a set of matching camping table, chairs in a perfectly integrated bag for the rear storage space or matching boxes for the open rear roof storage cupboard. 

For maximum flexibility, the ERIBA Car is equipped with many new ideas. Practical floor compartments in the platform and open rear roof storage cupboards provide extra storage space. The seating group in a cozy lounge design not only ensures seating comfort while driving, but the tilt adjustment makes it even more comfortable for longer evenings in the vehicle. The table in the seating group can also be used multifunctionally. Thanks to the pull-out function, this can be flexibly expanded if more space is required. 

There are also clever solutions in the kitchen area, such as a fold-out table on the outside of the kitchen, an additional pull-out worktop and a 90 l compressor refrigerator that fits perfectly into the narrow chassis and is easy to use thanks to the pull-out function. 

The integrated compact bathroom combines all functions in a small space and offers plenty of freedom of movement thanks to its design. The standard shower can also be used flexibly as an outdoor shower through the bathroom window.  

Thanks to extensive standard equipment, including high beam control, automatic air conditioning “Air Care Climatronic” and automatic distance control, and the pleasant dimensions of 599 cm overall length and 207 cm overall width (without exterior mirrors), the ERIBA Car offers the same driving comfort as a car. This ensures safe and pleasant travel, especially on long distances. With the ERIBA Connect app, you can also smartly control air conditioning, heating or lighting via your smartphone or display. 

The new ERIBA Car will be available from spring 2024.
