1950
The "Sauerland" always used to be a great location for vacations. In the 50s two men from Warendorf: Mr. Austermann and Mr. Hartmann had an amazing idea during a rainy night on occasion of their holidays. They draw and constructed their first caravan: the Falter I.

...The question of who would own the rights to the design was worked out among friends. After working everything out, the Falter I was renamed the Hartmann. That was in 1952. Since Mr Austermann wanted to camp in his own mobile home, however, he quickly built one for himself. This led to the creation of the legendary Knospe camper in 1955.
