FROM THE BEST SOURCE. FOCUS ON QUALITY.

The first Malibu models which Carthago founder Karl-Heinz Schuler put on the road in 1979 were already of the highest quality standard. This heritage is just as evident in our Malibu vans and integrated and semi-integrated motorhomes now as our decades of experience in the premium price segment. With quality characteristics which are typical of the brand and a unique added value promise, the latest Malibu vans and motorhomes are setting the standards again in the upper middle class. Their claim is to be the best motorhomes in their class – in order to give you the best holiday moments of your life.

We are proud to be one of Germany’s top family-run companies. As part of a representative study, 1000 family-run companies with annual turnover of up to 1 billion Euros were analysed and evaluated in accordance with the criteria of trustworthiness, quality, innovation, sustainability and their image as a company and employer. Key figures concerning turnover and personnel development and also new patent registrations were also taken into consideration. The Carthago Group achieved 24th place in the overall ranking.
