Introducing – Hobby Motorhomes
Viscount Motorhomes announced last month that they have added Hobby Motorhomes to their range of new motorhomes. Hobby attracted Viscount’s interest because they have demonstrated their commitment to innovative technology and their passion for modern inventions and design. Hobby have been trading for 50 years and currently employ almost 1,000 people at their large production site in Germany.
Why Hobby Motorhomes Are So Popular
Hobby are renowned for the attention to detail that characterises their motorhomes, right from the overall design to the equipment installed and how the available space is used. The Optima De Luxe and the Siesta De Luxe ranges are classified as “full equipment” vans, so everything that you need is included in the standard package. This means that when you buy a model from one of these ranges, there will not be any hidden costs to contend with. Items such as sat-nav, airbags for driver and passenger, extra-wide habitation door, awning and pull-out gas bottle are all included. Also installed is Hobby’s CI-BUS on-board management system and TFT panel so that all the devices can be controlled and monitored.
Popular Features of Hobby Motorhomes
Driver and passenger seats are height-adjustable, swivel and have armrests. They share the upholstery fabric with that of the living area, and the side and front windows are equipped with blackout blinds. The stowage compartments and garage provide easy access and plenty of space. Gas bottles are easy to change due to the pull-out shelf.
Living areas have plenty of storage space, insect screens and blackout blinds. The LED lighting creates a cosy atmosphere, and the kitchen includes a slimline refrigerator where plenty of chilled items can be stored as well as a three-burner hob. There is plenty of storage space for utensils and groceries here too.
Comfortable, well-ventilated beds also feature in these new motorhomes, and the hot-air heating system and the lighting can be controlled from the bed.
The mirror cabinets in the attractive and practical washrooms provide plenty of storage space, and there is an extending washing line. Quiet-flush Thetford toilets are installed and either integrated or separate shower cubicles.
Optima De Luxe and Siesta De Luxe
Models in this year’s Optima De Luxe range include two compact vans in addition to the low-profile models. There are height-adjustable beds in four models, and buyers can choose between the Premium and the De Luxe rear panel. The premium rear panel is two-tone and is available on fourteen models and seven different layouts, while the De Luxe rear panel is white and smooth. This can be found on twenty-two different models and eleven layouts. Interior colour schemes can be either Ashai Ash or Karelia Pine.
There are layouts for every motorhome owner. If you are looking for luxury whilst touring, the two-berth T65 GQ and the four-berth T65 HGQ both feature split central washrooms and in-line island beds. Both models are a little under seven metres long. The T65 GQ has an optional third berth but is really ideal for couples.
The Siesta De Luxe overcab motorhomes are ideal for families with various options for berths and travel seats.
These Hobby models join a number of other popular names including Swift motorhomes, Sunlight motorhomes and Adria motorhomes which are all on show and available to buy from Viscount Motorhomes.
