Hobby unveils three new caravan model ranges for 2022
Hobby has introduced significant changes for the 2022 caravan model year and will now offer seven model ranges and 54 layouts.
New ranges include Excellent Edition – a caravan designed for modern families and Maxia – its most premium tourer.
In a first for the company and following feedback from across its international dealer network, Hobby has also introduced its new sub-brand, Beachy, an entry-level caravan inspired by beach holidays.
The new Scandinavian-inspired Excellent Edition comprises six different layouts – 460 UFe, 490 KMF, 495 UL, 545 KMF, 560 KMFe and 650 KMFe.
The lightest is the 460 UFe (1,350kg) and the heaviest, the twin-axle 650 KMFe (1,900kg). The Excellent Edition can sleep from 2-4 people with four of the models having bunk beds to cater for younger families.
There are two models in Hobby’s new premium range – the 495UL with U-shaped seating area and two single beds and the 660 WQM with island bed.
Both models are inspired by the Scandinavian concept of Hygge – a feeling of cosiness. The body shell is anthracite-coloured, setting it apart from the other caravans in Hobby’s collection.
Hobby’s sub-brand was developed in conjunction with an exterior design agency (a first for the manufacturer) and is created with the newcomer in mind.
There are three layouts – 360, 420 and 450 with weights starting at 900kg. Both the 360 and 420 are suitable for two adults and one child while the 450 can accommodate two adults and two children.
The Beachy range features simple furnishings inspired by the coast with natural linen and sand-coloured cushions.
The large rear door opens upwards, a feature more commonly seen in campervans but employed here to allow those within to make the most of their view.
In addition to the new ranges, The Ontour, De Luxe, Excellent, Excellent Edition and Prestige ranges have also been improved for 2022.
