Ordering new caravans

Just a heads up that I believe the 2022 model year production run has been extended slightly this year to allow Hymer to catch up on delays. Think that means that the new models won’t be on display until end of 2022 at the earliest and probably missing the October caravan show.

Looks like 2023 may see some changes. A new Feeling is available to order on the continent. https://www.marktplaats.nl/v/caravans-en...er-op-show-2023
I have also heard from my local dealer that the "coloured Trolls" are up for a change. I don't know if they are adding to the current pair or stopping them.
Another dealer mentioned about them visiting Hymer in June to see what is available for next year.

That Feeling is almost 7m shipping length which is a lot more than a Troll at 5.79m - to be precise 4ft more. The blurb says the MTPLM has been upgraded from 1300kg to 1600kg on that example, which surely means a fairly low standard payload as the MIRO must be 1100kg plus, given that the current 470 is 1050kg. .

Looking at the Witoma website they're no longer mentioning the coloured versions but the 60 Edition appears to live on into 2023.

The two Familias are listed and the two Tritons with washrooms,, but both the 535 and 542 don't get a mention. Base price for a 550 looks like around 28,000 Euro in 2023 model year.

We ordered an Eriba 540 in March 2023. The scissors on the roof has a rivet which Hymer are having trouble with. They are having to recall and new caravans must wait. No ETA for the new caravan Perhaps we'll get a 2024 model!

The caravan is in Uk for collection next week!!

perhaps they could use one of these instead of rivet, in the size they need

John, I've had two factory build order Eribas. In 2006 I placed an order for collection from a dealer in Belgium and in 2016 an order for collection from Lowdhams in Nottingham. They took 7 and 9 months for delivery to dealer.
When you add up these usual long build times, availability of parts and Hymer's inefficiency in processing orders you could have a long order wait.
In early May I bought my current Eriba from Wandahome in Hull. It took Hymer over 3 weeks to process a parts order on 3 in stock items. These alloy wheels, Alko jockey wheel and Thule cycle carrier then took another 3-4 weeks to arrive at the dealer. The cycle carrier was also the incorrect model, so I sourced one from a UK supplier and had it within 3 days.

Hymer are obviously the exception to the rule of German efficiency.
