How we got to who we are today
An insight in a brand history of 60 years.
From the past directly to the future. The KNAUS Schwalbennest seeks to fulfil holiday dreams. KNAUS has for nearly 40 years motorhomes and ist by now KNAUS is one of the most successful brand of the industry. But we don´t forget our roots.
The roll out of the successful history continues. Helmut Knaus established KNAUS in Marktbreit in franc.
The KNAUS Schwalbennest is introduced – compact, comfortable and light.
An icon is born. The KNAUS SÜDWIND makes its début.
Time for higher capacities and a new headquarter. Our main factory arises.
The reward for his courage and pioneer spirit. Helmut Knaus receives the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The business quickly gathers momentum. This is now also clearly reflected by the new logo.
The TRAVELLER is the first KNAUS motorhome and in Promobil the „motorhome of the year‟.
With the Travel‐Liner we have a new integrated motorhome in our range. With great success.
A genuine success story begins. Finally, there is a camper van in KNAUS quality.
The SUN TI with its large panoramic roof is a great inspiration for a brand‐new type of vehicle.
50 years has passed. In the meanwhile KNAUS is one of the most successful producer of leisure vehicles.
On the anniversary date, the Schwalbennest makes a comeback – in a limited edition of 150 units.
The SKY I introduce a new generation of integrated motorhomes and inspire in matters of function and design.
Optimistic spirit at KNAUS: With our Caravisio concept, a new era is launched.
Another great jubilee: We celebrate 25 very successful years of KNAUS motorhomes.
After a few years without liners we are back in luxury segment with our new KNAUS SUN I.
Lightweight construction alone is not enough for us: We want a revolution. TRAVELINO 2.0 goes into production.
SKY TI: Germany’s best selling partial integrated comes from our company and takes off revised in the new model year.
From now on, MISSION TEC defines our work and our vehicle concepts.
The brand‐new DESEO follows the TRAVELINO with the state‐of‐the‐art FibreFrame technology.
With the L!VE series, KNAUS completes the largest and most attractive model range of all time.
We will become even more efficient with our new production hall in Jandelsbrunn.
Our motorhomes celebrate 30 years of success.
The VAN TI PLUS has what belongs together: KNAUS has built the first motorhomeon MAN TGE.
Our innovative KNAUS FoldXpand rear design combines two seemingly contradictory characteristics of a motorhome: maximum interior space with compact exterior dimensions. Thanks to unique folding lamella technology and a completely new type of rear light carrier, the rear section is transformed into a harmonious, level surface. This has resulted in a revolutionary concept that is completely new in motorhome construction, maximizing living space by just under 10 cm on the inside without taking up a single millimetre more space on the outside.
