WEINSBERG history

Always on the move!

Hardly no other brand as WEINSBERG combines tradition with progress – and an exciting history with impressive continuity. Today WEINSBERG finally returned to where the journey begun 50 years ago in a modified Fiat 238: In the hearts of many enthusiastic camping fans.
