Heard of Malibu? This German brand may not be that well known here in the UK, but mention its parent company, Carthago, and things become that bit clearer.

Malibu is a sub-brand of the German manufacturer of luxury motorhomes, representing a more affordable (yet still beautifully built) route into the van conversion market.

Among its 2020 offering is the model tested here, the Charming Coupé 600 DB. It also has a sister model – the 640 LE – that features two single beds or a longitudinal double at the rear, instead of the 600 DB’s transverse double.
