Malibu motorhomes have special characteristics and advantages which cannot be found in this combination in any other motor- home on the market. This added value, which is typical of the brand, can be felt and experienced on every tour that you make with your Malibu: with additional functionality, additional comfort, additional storage space and additional sense of well-being. That has always been our added value promise to you. The Malibu models in GENERATION M set the bar even higher in the upper class!
The Malibu bodywork is consistently oriented to what Malibu drivers want: long-term carefree driving and motorhome value retention. That is why we put our faith in long-term quality – in the high-stability materials that are used as well as the modern processing technology. Instead of the conventional body connection using point-by-point dowel or screw connections, we use an extremely stable and thermal bridge-free connection using form-fitted bonded frame members and PU toothing profiles. An important difference!

Is having a good climate particularly important to you when you are on the move? If so, a Malibu motorhome is the perfect companion for you! Regardless of the time of year: you will always have a real feel-good climate in the Malibu. How is that possible? On the one hand, we provide the driver’s cabin area, the technical components, the storage compartment and the main cabin door entrance with targeted heating, and on the other hand the heat circulates through the entire double floor. This means that there is always a pleasant climate inside the motorhome – even at freezing outside temperatures. And vice versa, when it’s hot outside, the Malibu is nice and cool. Since that which insulates and heats in winter provides perfect protection from the heat in the summer.

All Malibu motorhomes provide lots of room thanks to the extra-large double floor and many easily accessible storage compartments, so that your holiday luggage is stowed away safely and neatly in an instant. Bulky luggage such as camping furniture and skis can be stowed away in an optimum way in the central through-loading storage compartment. Thanks to the LED lighting in the through-loading double floor, you always have an overview of your luggage. Your Malibu motorhome is easily and conveniently loaded from the outside via numerous large external hatches. The large, self-supporting living area floor hatch in the living and kitchen area gives you convenient access to the extra deep storage compartments from the interior. And the double floor also acts as climate storage to protect your cargo from frost.
