Hi Folks, I'm thinking about twinning Daisy, our air-cooled, with an Eriba Puck lightweight caravan. Does anyone have any experience of how well this works? Not a lot of bhp to spare!

Cheers

Steve

If you google 'Eriba Puck images' there's a Fiat 600 towing one, if that can manage it I'm sure a Kombi can.

I had a 600 (in the days when 600 really meant it), and it 'wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding' Laughing

Hi Steve
We saw a great Orange & White Bay + Eriba combination at Vanfest last year Cool
Have a look at the link to our blog below which includes 2 or 3 pics

Vanfest 2011

In our opinion we doo not think it will be a problem towing an Eriba with a Kombi
Just doo it - especially if you can get it colour co-ordinated Cool

Loads of Classic Bays pull little caravans with their 1600 engines. I don't see it being a problem. Go for it.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm going for it so there will be a semi-detached Brazibay for next season!

Especially if colour matched to your Kombi Cool
