In 1983 Dethleffs built its first Dethleff motorhome and was the first German manufacturer of to use the Fiat Ducato chassis, which it fitted to its coachbuilt model. By the end of the 80s they added an A Class motorhome to their the range. In 1999 Dethleffs were building the large A 7870 ESPRIT, their first 3-axle motorhome which was also over eight metres.
