The German manufacturer Hobby is the world’s largest touring caravan builder and has been producing caravans for over 50 years. In 2013 it produced over 10,000 caravans in Germany, with over 50 per cent exported, at one of the largest caravan and motorhome production factories in Europe. Hobby produce a very wide range of caravans which are distinctive by their very modern curvaceous designs. In recent years their models have extensively used black tint acrylic windows, combined with matching dark tint acrylic side panels, to create a continuous black band that wraps around the entire caravan. Their motorhome and caravans have also extensively used large skylights.
