A different way to rent a Knaus Motorhome: stylish and cozy

Two large beds, permanent headroom and a small bathroom. And thanks to the beautiful decoration, the selected accessories and the high-quality furnishings, it’s really cozy and hygge. 

If comfort is the top priority for you because for example you are planning a longer trip, our panel van camper van, the Traveler, is just the right camper van for you. Thanks to plenty of storage space and plenty of room to move around, it also offers enough space for families. At the same time, its compact six-meter length, navigation system and reversing camera make it easy to drive.

Brand new “in stock” as of 2023 is our TRAVELER Compact – the same comfort with a shorter length (600 cm vs. 540 cm) – and €10 cheaper per day. All information and some pictures of this model can be found below.

“The trip with the Traveler to the Baltic Sea was a lot of fun for the whole family and left us wanting more :) The camper is very well equipped!“

Sarah & Sven

„Oooh, how nice it was with your Traveler at the turn of the year. We lacked absolutely nothing. Even lonely sunrises on the coast and coffee in the middle of the city of Bruges were included. See you soon!”

„Very good service! Fair conditions. My friend and I (camping amateurs and potentially slightly older than most vanlife fans) rented a TRAVELER from VANTOPIA in the first two weeks of August this year and traveled around Denmark in the best weather. (…) I would book with VANTOPIA again.”

„A fantastic experience. The four of us spent a week in Poland with the Traveler “Free” Edition. The camper van is lovingly equipped down to the last detail. There is even a deck of cards on board. We didn’t miss a thing on our first van vacation. The service from Larissa and Bastian is perfect all round.”

Rent a Knaus Motorhome 

Today, it is impossible to imagine Europe’s roads without the versatile models from camper van manufacturer Knaus: And many people feel the urge to travel when they hear the names “Schwalbennest” (Swallow’s Nest), “Südwind” (Southwind) or „Traveller”!

Our panel van camper van from Knaus Tabbert

The Knaus panel van is the ideal camper van for inexperienced camping fans and those who still want to travel in comfort and with a camper van that is easy to maneuver. With us, you can rent the ideal camper van for your camping trip.

This is the Knaus Boxstar 600 Street:

At a compact six meters, the Boxstar offers everything a camper’s heart desires – a fully equipped kitchen with a large refrigerator, a spacious bathroom, a comfortable seating area and, thanks to the pop-up roof newly developed by the manufacturer Knaus, four spacious sleeping areas. The bed in the pop-up roof has a sleeping area of 200 x 135 cm and the warm air vent in the front area keeps you toasty warm even when camping in winter. The new LFI technology also offers better insulation compared to classic GRP roofs. The convertible function with integrated mosquito net ensures a pleasant sleeping climate on warm summer nights and, of course, the best views from your own roof terrace.

The Knaus company and its history

Like so many others, the story of the Knaus company begins with a vision of the founder, Helmut Knaus. Although he thought vacations were great in principle, he liked the idea of the freedom of always being at home wherever he was. And so the idea for his first product was born – the “Schwalbennest” caravan. As a trained architect, he had no problem developing a house on wheels, which he presented for the first time in 1961. The two swallows, which are still the Knaus logo today, symbolized the freedom that came with a caravan.

“Snuggle ball” enjoys icon status

The small, round caravan “Schwalbennest”, also affectionately known as the cozy “Knutschkugel”, quickly achieved cult status and still has numerous fans today

From classic motorhome to panel van motorhome

After Knaus had established itself as a successful brand for caravans, the portfolio was expanded and the first Knaus motorhome, the Traveller, was introduced in 1988. The leading trade magazine Promobil, which is still published today, immediately named the camper van the motorhome of the year. 

Many other new models of different motorhome types followed, such as the Travel-Liner, the first integrated motorhome from Knaus, or the SUN TI, which with its large panoramic roof became the model for an entire category of leisure vehicles.

In 2003, Knaus also began converting panel vans into fully-fledged and comfortable motorhomes, thus starting another in-house success story.
