Neat little camper Eriba VW Puck

Has anyone seen anything like this? It weighs less around 500 pounds and is meant to tow behind a VW! It is too cool
I picked it up yesterday and found it at a garage sale in the rain!
It is small enough to tow behind a PT Cruiser or a Honda or anything with a hitch.
Interior floor is 9' from front to back
What do you think it is worth?

PS I also picked up a really sweet one owner super nice 63 Tradewind single axle on Friday night and will post pictures soon.

How funny


I went today to look at a trailer that I spotted out behind this guys place, thinking it was a Burro. Well, it was am Eriba Puck. Looks alot like the one you have there, about the same size with a pop up in the center on top. The owners weren't home, but I'm going to try and catch them home this week. About 900lbs total weight. Very tiny, and cool.

I looked at the pictures you have of it.
That is a neat little trailer!
No idea what it would be worth.
Have you done any research on the Internet about it?
I googled it and found this website for you:

Friend of mine has one. Used to belong to his father and my friend's retired so I know these Puck's have been around awhile. You get in and raise the little top 'cause everything you need to stand up for is done in the same place. They are kinda cute.

Well now I know what it is...

There is one of those sitting in the Camping World shop in Manassas, VA...I asked one of the mechanics about it, but he didn't even know where it came from just said it was an oldie and had a poptop. It looks like the one on the website that was for sale. I would bet with fuel prices where they are these things are going to start coming out of the wood work....

This is from RVWest

It’s rather Puckish, isn’t it?

You just never know when you will come across a vintage RV. So I was a bit surprised when I discovered that a friend, John Ross, was the proud owner of the 1968/69 Eriba Puck travel trailer.

The Eriba Puck is manufactured in Germany and this particular trailer was imported into California in 1969 and somehow made its way up to Western Canada. The “Puck” is a lightweight moulded plastic trailer noted for its solid tubular steel construction. It is ideal for towing behind a small compact car or truck.

Here’s a bit of Eriba Puck history. In the post-war years, the growing popular demand for mobility and holidays abroad was met by manufacturing firms like Eriba and Hymer. The Eriba company developed a line of camping trailers in the late 1950s.

One of the most attractive examples of these camping trailers was the light and aerodynamically designed Puck. The early models weighed only 230 kg and were first manufactured in 1958. An updated form is still available today as the Hymer AG Eriba Touring trailer.

The Eriba Puck proved to be very reliable and was noted for its robust tubular steel construction and outstanding towing characteristics. In addition to sleeping accommodation, Eriba was a pioneer in offering, for the first time, contemporary living amenities like an ice box, stove, sink, wood floors and cabinets.

The beauty of the Eriba is that it can be pulled by even a small car like a VW Beetle or small pickup and even today’s models are lightweights, weighing in at 500 kg, or around 900 lbs.

John Ross of Cranbrook tells me his Eriba Puck recently sold as a result of this article and his “Puck” is en route to Hawaii.

Do you have an Eriba Puck story or photos? Why not share them with us at
