Chausson are one of the best known brands of French built motorhomes. The original company was formed in Paris to make radiators, reservoirs and automobile bodies as early as 1903. From 1942-1959 the company manufactured Chausson buses, which were often used for transporting schoolchildren. By 1980 Chausson had started to build fitted vans and the first overcab motorhomes, the Acapulco 44 and 56, were introduced in 1984. Chausson were the first vehicle manufacturer to insist on white bodywork which turned out to be a successful move.
The company became the Chausson Camping Car Company in 1990. Chausson is now part of the Trigano Group, who claim to be the European market leader in motorhomes and caravans. Chausson overcab and low profile motorhomes are designed and produced by Trigano VDL at their extensive premises at Tournon-sur-Rhône in the Ardèche region of France. About 5000 motorhomes are manufactured each year at this site, which is one of the largest in Europe.
There are currently Chausson dealerships in more than fifteen European countries. Chausson motorhomes are good value for money. The wide range of different models, engine sizes and layouts mean that there is a Chausson out there to suit every customer.
