Andy Gore off Eribafolk Facebook just commented and added the following photograph which I found very interesting because the stand next to his with the 3 maybe 4 Eribas on it looks to be owned by a company called Bilbo's Com. unless that is the stand behind as there is a large light above the stand with Westfalia on it.
I've added our exchange of comments. Does anyone know more about this company?

Just been down to the NEC, to set up our stand, and we have the Eriba stand right next door 😎
Today is set up day for us and the show opens Tuesday @ 10:00

Hi Andy. That's an interesting photograph. If I'm not mistaken the Eriba Stand right next door belongs to Bilbo's.com? I looked them up and they are campervan speciialists from Kent.
Do they now do Eribas then? Can't find any mention on their website.

My guess is the Eribas are parked there temporarily.

You beat me to it. The corner steadies aren't down.

Hi Randa,

Wouldn't surprise me if Eriba are forming a collaboration with VWCVUK / approved
converters at the NEC. Makes perfect sense in further promoting the All New Eriba
2023 model to a known VW audience, who understand the relationship of brands.

Forward Thinking!

Roy.

PS: Westfalia sign in photo reminds me of the long term friendship / relationship
between Westfalia and Airstream... Such collaborations are nothing new!

I've mentioned to one member who is going to visit the show, but here goes with a general request to all who are visiting to do a bit of digging.
Last June/July we were in NL and visited a lot of dealers. One mentioned a 600 range being developed. I thought he might have been getting mixed up with the 560 but he said no, a 600 range was under development.

Hi Colin,

A 600 that's interesting, thinking Eriba reducing 2023 model range to 310-430-530-540-542-550-560
certaintly makes for additional future models. Just wondering what the 600 would offer to the range.

Does anyone know if Rockabilly/Ocean Drive will return in the new models, or 600 Americana model?

Wishful Thinking!

Roy.

I think room for a 600 would exist. To me it would be something like a mini 820.

Hi Colin,

Totally agree there's room having reduced the model range to six with addition of the 560 bunk.

A mini 820/600 model would be an interesting edition, for the UK the 820 is basically a static unit.

Would like to see a 2023 model version of Rockabilly or Ocean Drive as we're trying to down size.

Makes one wonder what Thor are thinking for UK and Europe markets.

Roy.

I think the idea of a temporary parking place for the Eribas is a good one but whoever "owns" that stand had better get their fingers out. When I was involved in large shows, stand building used to take days and everyone was very protective of their own space.

Regarding a new 600 model, what about a re-launch of the Odin 650? See link for details. Or perhaps a re-launch of the Pontos which appears to be a really desirable Eriba to a number of existing Eriba owners.

And another question. Does anybody know if TV coverage is planned on any of the terrestrial channels, you know the ones you do not pay for.

It's on the ten o-clock news on BBC 1 tonight, just after the segment about President Biden's visit to Ukraine but before the report on the search for a new SNP leader.
