Ontario, Canada-based Erwin Hymer Group North America, manufacturer of Class B motorhomes, has entered the towable market with two travel trailers sporting European design elements. The Eriba Retro and Hymer Touring GT have the same floorplans with a king-size bed at the rear, a midship kitchen and a wet bath. A dinette with L-shaped seating at the front converts to sleeping for two with the table removed. Exterior length is 18 feet, 11 inches, and the trailers weigh in at less than 2,500 pounds (claimed) with a gross vehicle weight rating of 3,000 pounds.
The bed takes up the entire width at the rear of both trailers, and there’s overhead storage on three sides and more storage below. The kitchen’s two-burner range and single-basin stainless sink are set above an under-counter refrigerator. Freshwater capacity is 23 gallons.
The back-to-their-German-roots trailers feature pop-top roofs for additional headroom (8 feet, 5 inches) and come in various exterior colors. The Touring GT is available with a full or bottom-half-only stainless-steel look. Interior decors include light or dark cabinetry and fabrics.
The ultra-lightweight Eriba Retro and the Hymer Touring GT trailer lines are expected to be available at selected dealerships this summer. Retail prices were not available at press time.
