In 1931, company founder Arist Dethleffs built his first caravan on his own so he could take his family along on business trips. Since that time, nothing has changed in terms of the family friendliness of Dethleffs vehicles.
Since its founding, Dethleffs caravans – and since 1983 also Dethleffs motorhomes – have been a reliable friend of the family as they combine high quality with modern style and consistently win over customers with unconventional ideas for all family members, for grandmas and grandchildren alike. In 2017, the company received a special attestation of its reliability and quality in form of the German Fairness Prize for service quality, awarded by the news channel n-tv.
Dethleffs developed the lightest caravan of its class with the prototype COCO since families in particular desire a sustainable future and responsible use of resources. In addition, Dethleffs presented the first fully electronically-powered motorhome within the context of the vehicle study e.home.
