Read somewhere on this forum about possible corrosion on some eribas prior to 2016 also issues with fixtures on early german vans would all the problems have been sorted out now on say a 2017 Triton 430?

2012 is the year that the subframe was extensively galvanised and the full production was transferred to Germany. I had a 2012 Eriba which had a few electrical issues that were corrected within the warranty,   however I did not have any fixture/furniture issues. I now have a 2015 Eriba Familia, this has had no problems regarding the furniture/fixtures.  If your buying second hand it will be a case of inspecting them on an individual basis as not all Eribas were impacted with the problems you described..

I have a 2017 Triton. It has suffered LED touch-light problems, now resolved, I think. Hinges and poor plywood used in carcase work will continue to be an issue that I will need to keep an eye out on, re-fixing hinges with araladite as required. Window rubber gaskets are the subject of a recall. Rust on framework should hopefully not be an issue as this is now zinc plated. I have however detected some drawbar corrosion near the coupling.
Whilst these observations may initially sound alarming they are in-fact "sod-all" when compared to a normal white wobbly box caravan and can be addressed, subsequently leading to a long and trouble free ownership.

Have now just read on another Eriba group on FB that there has been a recall on models around 2017 for all the window seals to be replaced under warranty by the manufacture you have to take to a main dealer and they have it for about a week, Will try and find more info unless anyone already knows and update.

This Eriba buying is not so simple as just deciding on the layout and overall size of van you want, I have decided to bite the bullet and go for a Triton 430 around 2017

The quest continues  :confused:

Update it seems only a certain batch are affected

I met a new Eriba owner last week who mentioned he had received the window seal recall notice.  He said he'd checked his window seals carefully, couldn't see a problem and was planning to ignore it.
