New special model for the whole family: the ERIBA Exciting Family

Bad Waldsee, 24 August 2018 – In the past, the Family special models of the ERIBA Exciting have already provided many families with fond memories of their holidays, which will last them a lifetime. With a comprehensive equipment package for both the 505 and 560 layouts, the spacious caravan will continue to be the perfect companion for the whole family in future as well. The modern, redesigned interior of the vehicles is one particular highlight. What’s more, the design of the vehicles can now be customised in countless different ways, and they can even sleep up to nine people.

The ERIBA Exciting has been an integral part of Hymer GmbH & Co. KG’s caravan range since 2013. Now the popular 505 and 560 layouts of the Exciting Family special model are getting a makeover, which includes a new and welcoming interior design, as well as a comprehensive equipment package. “Our Family special models are miraculously spacious and perfect for families. With their generous dimensions and high-quality interior furnishings, they represent exceptional value for money and include everything you need for a fantastic holiday as standard,” explains Rudi Fimpel, ERIBA Caravans Divisional Manager.

Modern design with harmonious details

The caravan couldn’t be any more cosy with its welcoming interior design featuring bright, classic oak tones combined with new grey, light blue and coral colour highlights. The expansive dark grey areas, which create a visual distinction between the spacious kitchen/dining area with a 142-litre Smart-Tower refrigerator and the sleeping area, are particularly eye-catching. The interior’s harmonious colour scheme is rounded off by the snuggle package, which comprises a bedspread and matching pillows. The Exciting Family also makes a striking impression with its bodywork and exterior design and remains true to the ERIBA line: together with the classic ERIBA rear including the distinctive hybrid rear lights, the caravan has a smooth metal finish as standard, which lends it a particularly elegant and automotive appearance. The GRP coating of the front, roof and rear also provides weather and hail protection.

Comprehensive standard equipment and a whole host of customisation options

It’s not just the unique design that makes the Family special models stand out, but their comprehensive equipment package as well: amongst other things, this includes a mosquito net roller door, a double-glazed panoramic roof vent with LED lighting, as well as atmospheric ambient lighting. The cosy and family-friendly central seating area is the beating heart of the caravan. Both layouts have a spacious kitchen with large drawers and places to store all your things, and you can also add an optional larder unit. A room divider gives you the option to partition off the children’s sleeping area from the generous master bedroom, which has a double bed.

The two new layouts also have LED reading lights with an integrated USB charging socket next to each bunk bed. The spacious wardrobe with a clothes rail and additional linen cupboard has all the storage space you and your fellow travellers will need. There’s even more room in the large rear garage, which is extremely easy to access via the standard garage door and the bunk bed, which can be folded up out of the way. Thanks to the countless customisation options, the caravan can be adapted to any customer and holiday requirements – whether in summer or winter. You might wish to add air conditioning to cope with hot days, for example, or floor heating for those days when it’s a bit chilly. The optional 3-tier bunk bed and the pop-top roof provide up to seven people with somewhere to sleep in the 505 layout, and up to nine people in the 560 layout.

The 505 and 560 layouts of the ERIBA Exciting Family will be available from dealers from October 2018.
