Malibu to launch in UK
A little over two years after the premier at Caravan Salon, the A-class and low-profile motorhomes from Malibu have gained a foothold and have established themselves in the middle class motorhome sector in continental Europe. Now, the company is to launch in the UK at the February NEC show in Birmingham.
As a subsidiary of Carthago, Malibu has now developed into a full-range provider with the double model series of A-class and low-profile motorhomes. High-quality, technically advanced motorhomes with completely wood-free long-term main cabins and insulation. Every Malibu comes with a storage compartment double floor that can be loaded and a single level floor in the living area with a seating group with additional side seat bench as well as a large garage suitable for bicycles or a scooter.
The GRP roof protects against hail, the GRP underfloor against stone chipping and moisture.
The exterior is new. White skirts now supplement the main body construction; the elegant decor in anthracite and gold tone is also new. A particular eye catcher is the completely redesigned rear: a distinctive multi-segmented rear panel does not only upgrade visually, but also reduces repair costs in the event of an accident.
The transition to the roof line with all models is now shown by an elegant curve and bears a rear spoiler, a new bumper at the bottom. All-in-all, the appearance is now significantly upgraded. Even the hidden values are convincing: the central double floor is a fullyfledged and complete single-level double floor. This creates more space on the inside as the fresh-water tank now is now relocated to the heated double floor in the same manner as the waste-water tank. This allows the large seat cabinet of the double seat bench to be used as a storage compartment.
At the same time, the volume of the fresh-water tank increases from 110 litres to 120 litres and Malibu has created an additional storage compartment in the double floor. The double floor storage compartment can be easily accessed and loaded from the outside through a large hatch.
