Claire. As it's an early model I would suggest that you give your namesake Clare a ring at KOOL Classics.
Yes, a little way east along the coast from you but they are the best around particularly for older models.
There is Leisure First in Poole but they might not be interested in looking at it for you.

Kool Classics, East Sussex, Leisure First, Poole are the southern experts who've both been dealing with Eriba's for decades.

Is it a damp check or habitation check I'm best off asking for?

Did you pay for a service when you were warned about the damp?
If not, speak to Clare on the phone and explain what you've been told and mention that we (Eribafolk) have suggested you contact her.
She will service the van if it's not been done or will invite you to bring it in so they can look at it.
We believe that the original guy you took it to doesn't have a clue about Eriba construction.
If you can't see damp or smell damp there doesn't sound as though there's much wrong with it. At most a re-sealing of the waist rail and perhaps new window gaskets.

So having now spoken to the guy myself it seems there has been damp at some point that has made the wooden parts rot inside but he is going to seal all the little holes and some of the wall is coming away so he will seal that too and replace the rubber seal. He also said he thinks our eriba is a very rare one and one of the first ever made...does anyone know what year and if it is rare? Will Post pics in a sec

The first Eriba models date back to the very late 50's and by the early 60's I believe most of the model sizes were available.
