Is it a motorcycle or a scooter?

This strange machine was all the rage back when it was first introduced. The model shown below had the optional trailer package.

With its engine located between the wheels like a motorcycle, it was not your average scooter.

What it is ?? Who made it and when ?? What did they call it ??

Hi Andy,
It's a Campi trailer attached to a Maicomobil.
Here is a nicely restored Maicomobil.

Damn Aris... you are too good.

How do you like the styling of these fine German motorcycles?

Here are some links for reference:

Hi Andy,
Well I can't say I like the styling really. Actually the first time I saw my friend's Zundapp Bella, which he loves, I told him my opinion about it

Did you by any chance come up with this trivia after researching for the Heinkel Tourist? All these motorcycle-scooters look alike as they are long with the engine in the middle and chain drive.
Nice trivias Andy, I'm glad you take such an active part in this forum. It lets me take some time off sometimes
