KNOTT ETS Plus electronic stabilisation system
The high-performance sensor monitors the movement of the car and caravan continuously while on the road. ETS Plus counters any snaking movements instantly and effectively and brakes automatically in case of danger.
Pull-out bed extension
For many caravans with single beds, a pull-out bed extension can be supplied as an option. The additional cushion creates an extra-large sleeping space. (depending on model)
The optional carpeting lets you recreate the comfort of your living room at home. It consists of multiple elements specially tailored to fit the layout of your caravan, and can be easily removed for cleaning.
Hobby CI-BUS on-board management system with TFT control panel
Whether TRUMA, ALDE or DOMETIC: thanks to the cross-sector interface, the new symbols and graphics on the Hobby TFT operating panel depict a cross-section of all manufacturers' symbols, meaning that users will find themselves in a familiar environment as far as icons are concerned. Displays such as date / time, inside / outside temperature, water tank level and battery charge / discharge can be read on the display panel or settings can be activated directly. Other BUS-capable on-board components, such as heating, air conditioning and electric sunroof, can be centrally controlled. The system is standardised, can be updated and is therefore compatible with future appliance generations. Up to 15 appliances can already communicate with the control panel. (Observe manufacturer’s instructions; in Premium and Landhaus ranges. All caravans supplied through our official dealer scheme will have our flag on the Tft panel. This shows they are compliant to UK specifications. Notice: safety requirements differ from country to country.)
The intelligent battery sensor IBS supplies all the important data such as charging time, charging current and charging voltage, as well as the remaining running time and discharge current of the GEL or AGM battery in autonomous mode. All values can be read on the TFT operating panel. The battery sensors supply the intelligent charger with the exact charging current and voltage it needs, thereby ensuring battery-conserving charging until it is 100% full. Charging times are reduced by approx. 30% with this system compared to standard chargers.
Developed exclusively for Hobby leisure vehicles, the HobbyConnect M2M system allows you to control the entire onboard technology via mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. For this you will need the “MyHobby” app, which can be used to check or directly activate settings such as time, temperatures, filling levels and battery charge.
Other BUS-capable on-board components such as heating and air conditioning can also be centrally controlled, with HobbyConnect providing an interface between the caravan’s CI-BUS on-board management system and the Internet. That means you can connect directly with virtually any location in the world from your own vehicle. Data communication takes place in both directions via a special web server. That way you can receive push notifications on the mobile device, e.g. if the vehicle is removed from its location in case of theft.
The fully automatic satellite system Cap 650 from Kathrein includes a rotating flat antenna with a large range. Measuring just 21 centimetres high, it has excellent aerodynamic qualities. The antenna comes with a twin LNB, which means that two receivers can be integrated in the system and automatically align with the right satellite for the selected channel.
TV jointed bracket with pivot arm
Optionally available for many models: the swivelling TV bracket for watching TV from the seating area or bed – top-rated by the German specialist magazine “Camping, Cars & Caravans”. A pull-out shelf for the TV is used in vehicles where there is not enough room to fit the articulated bracket.
Fleece blanket and decorative cushions with “50 years of Hobby” logo
The Hobby Anniversary Edition is a real eye-catcher: the dynamic outside design with the anniversary logo gives the caravan an individual note.
