Chassis / Safety

Stabiliser hitch KNOTT

Safety first: the safety coupling from KNOTT with tracking stabiliser and convenient single-lever system is all part of the package with Hobby.

Overrun brake KNOTT ANS with automatic adjustment

The KNOTT ANS overrun brake adjusts itself automatically, guaranteeing unrestricted braking performance at all times. A key safety feature, particularly in critical driving conditions.

Drawbar cover

Attractive and practical: the stand-on cover makes it easier to load and unload the gas locker. It also makes it easier to clean the front of the
caravan.

One-key locking system

One key for everything: entrance door, gas cylinder locker, storage space lids, boot lid and door for removing WC cassette.

Integrated 3rd brake light

A multitude of lighting elements, the majority of which are LED, increase the visibility of the caravan. They are harmoniously integrated into the contours of the vehicle, thereby emphasising the distinctly automotive design. The third brake light is a decisive safety advantage.

The bright LED awning light illuminates the doorway and provides pleasant light in the awning.

Rear fog light

A multitude of lighting elements, the majority of which are LED, increase the visibility of the caravan. They are harmoniously integrated into the contours of the vehicle, thereby emphasising the distinctly automotive design. The third brake light is a decisive safety advantage.

The inside of the door is equipped with handy shelves, a waste bin and a pleated fly screen. The practical waste bin with integrated dustpan and brush set helps you to keep the vehicle clean. Another notable feature of the Hobby door, which is 40 mm wider than standard doors, is the highly effective splash water seal. The LED entry light casts a pleasant light and illuminates the awning.

Windows
