The three figures featured on the RAPIDO logo represent the 3 generations of the Rousseau family.
RAPIDO was founded in 1948 by Constant ROUSSEAU, a creative person and craftsman cabinetmaker who was familiar with high quality materials and worked with every type of wood. In 1961, for his own holidays he invented and manufactured a canvas folding caravan that rested on achassis, which could serve as a trailer the rest of the year.
THE SAME PASSION FOR 3 GENERATIONS
Pierre ROUSSEAU joined the company in 1976 to work with his father. He immediately thought of designing motorhomes. The first model left the factory in 1983: this was the Randonneur 410. In 2014, Nicolas ROUSSEAU, Pierre’s son joined the company and took over the management of sales and marketing. The passion for this product has been kindled in a third generation.
A EUROPEAN GROUP, FRENCH SAVOIR-FAIRE AND A FAMILY BUSINESS
RAPIDO has evolved from a quality French brand into a European group, becoming a market leader in motorhomes. The RAPIDO group gradually expanded with the brands ESTEREL (1993), RAPIDHOME (1998), FLEURETTE (2005), ITINEO (2006), CAMPEREVE (2009), WESTFALIA (2010), DREAMER (2014), PLA/ GIOTTILINE (2016), WILDAX (2017) and STYLEVAN (2017). However, the company has remained a family business and preserved its spirit of craftsmanship with genuine attention to detail.
