Truma – The company at a glance

International success through innovation and passion

Truma Company

Almost every camper in Europe knows Truma. Since the company was founded in 1949 by Philipp Kreis, we have been offering accessories for caravans and motorhomes. In 75 years, Truma has become an internationally successful company that is still family-run.

Back then, it all started with a gas lamp, which the company founder assembled himself in his living room. These days, Truma is a system supplier of heaters, air conditioning systems, hot water heaters, manoeuvring aids and gas supply in caravans and motor homes. Since the introduction of the Truma operating systems, digital networking has also become matter of course in everyday camping – and the search for innovative ideas continues every day. It also helps that many of our employees are also passionate campers: they not only develop products, they also use them. It is precisely this passion and identification that makes Truma successful.


Truma has been the leading specialist for caravan accessories for 75 years. In 1961, we developed the “first officially recognized caravan heater”, which made winter camping possible for the first time. Camping would just not be the same without Truma products.


Truma Competence

Truma has developed many innovations, thus setting new standards – for example the first liquid gas heater and the first manoeuvring aid for caravans. Thanks to our practical research and development, we continuously introduce new and further developed products to the market.

Product Quality

Truma products are the most effective on the market – they are very reliable and extremely efficient. This explains why the trade press regularly rates Truma as the best accessory brand for heaters and manoeuvring systems.
