History

1989
THE birth OF PÖSSL

1991
THE FORD TRANSIT PICK-UP/Alkoven is the production centre

A range of model versions are marketed under the names SPUTNIK, GEMINI, APOLLO1, APOLLO2 and CALYPSO. The Ford Transit provided the basis for both the single and twin cab versions.

1995
THE FIRST PÖSSL panel VAN

Peter Pössl’s vision is realised! To convert the inside of a small campervan into a serial panel van. The vehicle bases are the Peugeot Boxer and Fiat Ducato.
The DUO 2000, the DUO VAN, the DUETT and the PÖSSL FAMILY are born. At the time, Peter Pössl had no idea of the excitement he had unleashed. PÖSSL marketed the converted box van at the same price it cost in Germany for just the metal body of the vehicle. Even then the panel vans with full caravan interior boasted 12 m2 of living space..
