Carthago

Carthago

Karl-Heinz Schuler founded Carthago on 1 July 1979 and at that time the Company offered one off tailor-made conversions, to customer’s own specifications. Two years later the company moved to Ravensburg in a 200m² workshop with just 3 employees. Today, they operate from two sites and employ over 900 staff. Their sister brand, Malibu, was originally introduced in 1991, and initially manufactured on the Volkswagen T4. It wasn’t until 2013 that Malibu was launched as a separate brand to Carthago. 

At our Motorhome Design Awards in 2009 the Carthago Opus 5.6Q won the Best A Class, with the Carthago Liner 65 winning the A Class over £72,000 category in 2010. In 2012 the Club awarded the Carthago E Line I49 best A Class. In 2019, the Carthago compactline I138DB won the A Class vehicles under £90,000 class.
