Hobby announces lightweight BEACHY caravan range aimed at newcomers

The German caravan and motorhome manufacturer, Hobby, has announced a new, lightweight sub-brand called BEACHY for 2022 aimed at newcomers to caravanning. It says the BEACHY was inspired by sun, sea and sand – the feeling of being on holiday – with interiors and decor inspired by being by the sea.

There are three models available: 360, 420 and 450 with body lengths ranging from 3.6 m to 4.5 m. Maximum weights range from 900kg to 1,000 kg, which can be increased to 1,200kg.

Hobby says it is enthusiastic about its new vision of a ‘simple holiday companion’ which it says say has “a genuine beach vibe on wheels”. Hobby developed its idea by working together with a Danish designer and a renowned design agency that takes on technical projects.

“Forget everything you’ve ever known about camping,” says Holger Schulz, who came up with the idea. This became the Hobby team’s motto when developing the BEACHY. Simple, not too many frills, bright and natural colours, and a real beachy feeling – that’s why the smallest Hobby caravan has a pure beach vibe inside.

Keep it simple: the interior of the new BEACHY is simple and unique at the same time. Fabric-covered baskets and elastic straps provide ample storage space in place of the usual wall units. The cosy seating area features sand-coloured cushions with a natural linen look and can be flexibly converted into a comfortable sleeping area in
just a few simple steps. As always, a compact kitchen and a walk-in wardrobe, which can be fitted with a Porta Potti as an option, are included. The new BEACHY is available in three different models, which get progressively larger in size.

The BEACHY is a symbiosis of a camper van and Harald Striewski’s first home-made Hobby caravan. It is compact and particularly charming with its round shape. One unique gimmick is the large rear door: sitting on the bed and looking at the water gives you a real beachy feeling – whether at the beach, in the mountains or in the city. Born on the beach in northern Germany, the BEACHY is at home anywhere.
