Does anyone live in Suffolk/East Anglia?

Hi there,
We are thinking about buying an Eriba caravan in the next few months and would really like to see one in the flesh. There are no dealers locally and so we would appreciate it if there was someone who felt they wouldn't mind us coming to look at theirs...?
Ideally we'd like to see one of the 430 or 530/540 models.
If you are in East Anglia and would be happy to let us see your van, please reply!
Thanks in advance!

Helen, if you have no offers then I'd give Dom Fox in Norfolk a call. He is a specialist eriba dealer in 2nd hand vans. At present he is showing a 540 on his website but will probably have other vans in the pipeline. I have in the past both sold and bought from him and would happily do so again.
sales@domfox.co.uk. 01263687160 and 07789007976

Thank you for the heads up Colin... we often go to Norfolk with our current caravan so this is a real possibility.

Ah thank you - will certainly bear it in mind - we are a bit tied up at weekends for a little while and would probably have to tie it in with a camping trip. Thanks for the offer!

I’m pretty sure the couple with username ‘Magpie’ live in Lowestoft - you may be able to send them a private message

We have a 2005 430GT and live near Diss on the Suffolk/Norfolk border

What age Eriba are you looking for? Pre 2010 models are very different from post 2010...

We have a 2004 540 GT, and live at Alderton near Woodbridge, Suffolk.
You are very welcome to look at it. We think that the 540 GT is the best of the Troll range, for us. We would also endorse speaking to Dom Fox, who sold us our van.

Nick

And us ours...

We often go and camp at Poppyland in Thorpe Market - not far at all from Dom Fox (who recommended them to us). It's an excellent site (adult only) and the owners are ex-Eriba owners (who now have a Hymer Nova).

Thanks everyone for your generosity and offers! One of the advantages of looking at an Eriba that wasn't for sale (i.e. owned as yours are) is that we might be able to pick your brains at the same time. If we have plans to be in your area, we will get in touch... I hope that's OK :-)
We are toying with whether we would prefer a fixed bed (with the front dinette) or seat conversion and are keen to see the differences between 430, 530 and 540... @Simboc2004 we would be interested to know what the differences are between pre and post 2010 models - so don't really know what the answer to your question is. I'm trying to be a detective and figure things out from images and adverts!
@NickR we are in Ipswich and you are very close to us - we would love to arrange to see your 540 - will send a message! Thanks again! H
