Malibu I 441 LE motorhome

The most compact motorhome in the brand’s range, the Malibu I 441 LE is just 6.67m long. With compact dimensions, it offers outstanding comfort and a practical payload within the popular 3,500kg weight class.

In the Malibu I 441 LE, you will find a spacious L-shaped lounge/seating area with a swivel-out shoe cabinet and holding system neatly integrated in the plinth of the bench seat.

The front seats can be quickly and easily turned around so that they integrate into the seating group.

The galley kitchen is compact and therefore ideal for short vehicles. It provides lots of storage space thanks to six deep pull-out drawers and the spacious overhead storage cabinets above the kitchen, and the option of a low-level oven with grill.

At the end of the galley kitchen, there is a 133-litre Slimtower fridge with separate freezer compartment positioned at convenient hand height.

However, the highlight of this layout is the space-saving Vario washroom with a sophisticated swivelling wall. With a single manual operation, the washbasin and the rear wall are swivelled over the toilet, creating a spacious shower with all-round partitioning.

Another special feature is the changing space in the washroom/sleeping area which is hidden from view from the front thanks to the solid washroom door.

The lengthways single beds in the rear, within a large area up to two metres long, provide optimum sleeping comfort.

The interior has been completely revised, with new furniture architecture, curved overhead storage locker doors and surfaces with the two-tone look in high-gloss ivory with strips of wood and chrome piping.

The new Graphic Stone floor covering finishes off the interior.

The exterior bodywork features a thermal bridge-free ceiling/wall connection using frame members which are glued over their entire surface with elegant roof rounding.

Malibu Van First Class - Two Rooms 640 LE RB campervan


Here’s a unique and innovative layout with a two-room concept, which comes complete with changing room!

Inside the lounge seating area in the Malibu Van first class - two rooms, there’s a great feeling of space, with increased passage width in the kitchen/living area.

The kitchen has several great features to offer. The large storage drawer at the front of the seat bench and the storage compartment in the seat bench behind it can be conveniently accessed from above using ‘one-touch access’ – without removing the upholstery.

A pull-out waste bin with a separate hygiene area is integrated in the bench seat. The 84-litre compressor fridge has been integrated at the front of the kitchen, making it conveniently accessible from the inside and the outside.

The new flexi-washroom 2.0 provides even more freedom of movement and improved ergonomics. A louvre door is used to separate off the shower, and a practical hinged element protects the swivelling toilet from water spray.

The fixed mirror increases the freedom of movement above the washbasin. An open shelf and a spacious washbasin base unit provide plenty of room for washroom utensils.

The two-room concept with changing room is unique in the Van class: open the room-partitioning door with swivel element as far as it will go next to the universal tall cabinet and lock it in place.

This means separate living and sleeping areas are created in an instant.

There are two wardrobes and also a spacious linen cupboard beneath the lengthways single bed at the passenger side, which is also easily accessible from above.

The lengthways single beds in the rear impress with an even longer sleeping length of up to 2.03m. This new layout is also available as a charming coupé model or GT skyview with extended room height in the driver’s cabin and the living area.
