Knaus Tabbert Crafter motorhome

Knaus Tabbert and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has signed a contract for the supply of chassis for motorhomes and vans for the Volkswagen Crafter and VW T6.1 series.

From the second half of 2022, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will act as a further partner for the supply of chassis and vans for the KNAUS and WEINSBERG brands.

The deal will see Knaus Tabbert further diversify its portfolio of motorised chassis and enter new, high‐growth market segments.

Wolfgang Speck, CEO of Knaus Tabbert said: “The agreement with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is another significant step towards optimising our supplier base and production processes.

“It also enables us to offer our customers an even greater variety of models.

“The additional chassis and vans will help to shorten delivery times, which have been considerably stretched due to material shortages, and further reduce our dependence on individual suppliers.

“This means we are also optimally positioned for growth in the future.”

With Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Knaus Tabbert has now concluded its fifth cooperation with an OEM for the supply of vans and chassis.

In early spring, the group had already announced cooperation agreements with Mercedes and Ford for the supply of motorised chassis, thus doubling the number of suppliers this year.

Knaus Tabbert will present the first models and prototype vehicles based on Volkswagen chassis at its dealer conference on 24 to 27 June 2022 and at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf 26 August to 4 September 2022.
