German Eriba Puck?

My guests from Germany arrived this evening, and when they saw my Tote n Tarry sitting in the carport they said it reminded them of a German Eriba Puck! I hadn't heard about or seen one before, but the look like kissing cousins. I don't know if there are any in the U.S. Check 'em out

They do look quite similar. There's one listed for sale on the Fiberglass-RVs for Sale Website, even though they're aluminum I think, not fiberglass. This one's in Kentucky: 1969 12' Eriba Puck Trailer | Louisville, KY | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

Oh, I guess I didn't read that far. I think Airstream had something do do with them. Too bad the guy who's selling one didn't post any photos. I guess some did make it to the U.S.! Thanks for the link Kathy

When Terry and I met in 1996 two of the things we had in common was our love of biking and camping. In 2004 Terry and I biked Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic for seven weeks. Terry is originally from Austria and her cousins live in Germany and the Czech Republic. At the time we owned a Chevy diesel pickup and a 5th wheel that we really didn't enjoy that much. We were getting tired of having to camp in the ghetto's. Her German cousin camps and took us to a camper dealer where we saw the cutest functional campers that could take us back to the better sites in the campgrounds away from the ghetto.

We talked for the next two years, but in 2006 we sold the big diesel/5th wheel and purchased a 16' Scamp SD to pull with our Honda CRV. We felt the CRV was overloaded in the hills, so that winter we purchased a Odyssey with only 113,000 miles. The Odyssey now has 208,000 miles and has pulled for many enjoyable camping trips. The Scamp is gone and we now pull a light weight 17' Casita Spirit standard.

We love being back in the small secluded campsites and have way more fun than we ever had with the big hulk of a 5th wheel. We can set up in five minutes, and be on our trikes in ten. Had we not looked at all those campers in Europe we probably would still own our 5th wheel but camp much less often. Life is good!


2007 Casita Spirit 17' Standard, no ac, furnace, bath, water, or black/grey tanks, but lots of room, so we can haul more needless items.

2003 & 2008 Honda Odysseys

And that goes to prove, that less really is more! I must admit that the Europeans have always been able to put more into less when it comes down to industrial design and craftsmanship. A place for everything and everything in it's place!

The Eriba Puck was specifically designed to meet euro specs to be towed by Air Cooled VW Beetles and they are the cult trailer for VW collectors/enthusiasts, both in Europe and the U.S.

There is a knock-off currently being offered by a dealer in San Diego.

BTW: There is almost nothing in an Eriba Puck that even remotely resembles Airstream construction. It is aluminum sheeting over a simple tubing frame with a molded fiberglass top section and a pop-up part over the kitchen area. Remember, it had to be towed by a 36-40 hhp VW, not a French Bicyclist! LOL

Very efficiently built! Very cool. Cupboards wrapping around above the bed would be perfect!
