Eriba Touring 820

Recommended Posts

I'm told it's not an early April 1st post.

No pop-top, 8.5m long, 2.5 tons, £70,000 and they appear not to have come up with a Series name like Puck/Familia/Trident/Troll, could it be Mammoth?

At 2. 5 tonnes and 75,000 Euros, it should be good!

One of the main reasons that big Eriba Tourings of the past like the  'Titan'  never prospered saleswise was that Tourings are relatively heavy per metre. It's only really the fact that all models are small that means they look to be low in weight. The steel tubed body frame is what gives them their unique shape and structural strength but it does impose a weight penalty.

But Hymer say the 820 design has been being worked on for several years, since well before they were bought by Thor Industries.

 

Think of the culture shock issues at Elddis. You get taken over by Germans from Hymer and just get settled in that new relationship and they get bought by a US company.

But at least Hymer spent a lot of money on new equipment and changing the factory flow pattern before they were bought by Thor. We went around Elddis factory in September and were shown the kit and how much it had cost and the workers were rather chuffed with it all. .....               " would not have been bought in the old days!"
