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

Truma continues to set new standards through innovation and engineering. For example, we brought the industry the first liquid gas heater and the first maneuvering assistant for RVs. Thanks to our practical research and development, we continuously introduce new and further developed products to the market.

Philip Kreis Truma founder

German Roots, American Inspiration

Truma’s story begins in Munich in 1949.  Philipp Kreis, a language teacher, started making gas lamps so his students could study without electricity. Soon, he was manufacturing and selling his lamps to the masses.

Kreis was so inspired by President Harry S. Truman’s Marshall Plan for economic recovery he named his new company in Truman’s honor. 

For over 75 years, Truma has continued to provide quality solutions to the global outdoor recreation market.

Truma Group

Truma Group is the parent organization for Truma, Alde, nexT experience, and Truma Group Ventures. These four companies share a common passion: pioneering worldwide leading solutions for unforgettable times outdoors.
