„One day, the dream is for one caravan to be completed – and sold – each and every day.“

Harald Striewski, 1967

The vision of Harald Striewski, the founder of the Hobby company, has long been a reality – and has exceeded all expectations. Hobby is the most popular caravanning brand in Europe. More than 15,000 vehicles a year leave the factory in Fockbek on their way to every corner of Europe and beyond.

Group of companies

Aside from the Hobby brand, the Hobby Group also consists of Fendt-Caravan GmbH, based in Bavaria, the Rendsburger Feuerverzinkerei and Formlight GmbH, which is based in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Two strong partners: in 1998, Hobby incorporated Fendt-Caravan GmbH as a 100% subsidiary of the Hobby Group. Together, Hobby and Fendt are among the most important manufacturers of caravans and motorhomes in Europe.
