needs work to sub chassis, the peripheral box section of steel that runs around the edge of the floor / wall, (see photographs) most of this section needs replacing and fixing to the crossmembers of
the main sub chassis. As can be seen from the photographs, the main section of the sub chassis is still strong. The cruciform trailer section of the chassis is good, With the exception of the
draw-bar that needs to be freed off. These drawbars move in a nylon sleeve, and the steel section of the drawbar can become rusty and stop moving freely in nylon sleeve. I towed the caravan about 100
miles the other day, it towed fine but the brakes do not work because of the seized draw-bar. The running lights are working.
floor rippled but still intact and fairly solid.
Body work is
good with the exception of a deep scratch on the rear left quarter, this scratch has not pierced the skin. The cream paint is original the grey lower section is not original. All windows are very
good. The GRP roof is very good, the poptop is very good, the struts work. The main door lock is broken, it might be repairable.
is no damp, some shrinkage of the plastic wallboard covering is present. The real wood veneer to the carcase doors has been rubbed down and prepared for varnish. The upholstery has been redone in
very dark green, the work is to a good standard. The lights work 12v and 240v. The fridge works on electric mains 240v.
is an Eriba that could be made in to a 'little beauty' by the right people. There is work to be done, but once completed the familia would increase the value significantly.
