New Eriba 540 2023

Hi, waiting with excitedness for this to arrive and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the following:

Wheelclamp - main dealer recommended an Atlas, has anyone fitted a Nemesis (bright orange one) as I'm told the wheel bolts are non std on Eriba
Hitchlock - this year's model is a Knott hitch so an ALKO one will not fit. Have seen the Milenco one that will fit
Corner steadies - the bolt you wind stands proud so are there any locks that can fit these?
Jockey wheel cover - anyone have any good ideas?

Welcome to the forum Jason and the imminent arrival of your Eriba.
Firstly I'd check with your insurance company as they may advise/specify the requirements. If not, then the Nemesis Ultra wheel clamp should fit. We have one on our Triton that runs on the same size wheels. It comes with a security mounting bolt that replaces one of the Eriba wheel bolts.It is a nice unit, not too heavy and offers good protection.

Hitchlock, I cannot advise on a specific model as they are new out. If Knott make one I would go with their own, just because it should look like a piece of original equipment and fit better than an after market generic unit.
Corner steadies locks I would not bother with unless your insurance company requires them.
Jockey wheel cover, I'd ask the dealer to supply one for free. You've probably just paid north of £30K for your van and they really should provide one for free, especially as it will have their name printed all over it.
If you do not already have one, tell the dealer you expect a lightweight 6kg Propane gas bottle and hose etc. You will obviously have to pay for this but gas bottles are difficult to get at present.

Some on Facebook has posted that the free hitch cover on her new Eriba does not fit. It occurs to me now it maybe because of the chassis change to a Knott ?

Hi Jason & welcome.

We have a Troll and have gone through three wheel locks.

Last summer we changed to the Nemesis Ultra and it is by far the easiest & quickest one to use, We love it .............

Ditto what Mike T said. The Nemesis is hands down the best for us too.

Having searched the internet a lot I have come to the conclusion that I need the Milenco heavy duty Knott hitch lock. Reason for this as the others won’t fit over the large stabiliser handle.

Just searching up on wheel bolts that the 2023 model uses and hopefully invest in the nemesis.wheel clamp.

Corner steadies. The front 2 protrude so could use the Milenco nut locks and the rear the Milenco clamps. Clamps might fit the front but don’t want to interfere with the bodywork.

hi Jason

We looked at the Milenco corner steady bolts and were quite attracted to them as an extra deterrent until we read somewhere (can't for the life of me remember where) that dedicated thieves just forced up the steadies and just ignored the steady locks, presumably being prepared to repair them later.

Cheers

I see no reason why it should not.
