  • Introduction

    Dear Camper,

    Congratulations on the purchase of your new HOBBY mobile home. The trust you have

    placed in us is both an incentive and an obligation to continuously implement new ideas,

    technical innovations and fine touches to make our mobile homes even better. Our fully fitted

    and highly sophisticated models enable us to offer you the perfect setting for the most enjo-

    yable days of the year.

    Please read this user manual carefully, even if you have already been driving a mobile home

    for quite some time. This will help to prevent operating errors and damage to the vehicle and

    its equipment. Handling all of the technical details correctly will increase the pleasure you get

    from driving this vehicle and help to retain the value of your mobile home.

    If this user manual should be unable to provide the required assistance, a close, pan-Europe-

    an network of dealers is available for further help. Take advantage of your authorised dealer's

    experience and technical knowledge - we recommend speaking to him in detail before taking

    your first trip with your HOBBY mobile home.

    We wish you and your fellow travellers many enjoyable trips and hope you will always have a

    safe journey with your new HOBBY mobile home.

    Your

    HOBBY Wohnwagenwerk
