Hobby – The perfect start
to the mobile holiday world


The Hobby caravan factory is the world’s largest producer of recreational vehicles. Since the foundation of the company, 500,000 caravans have came off the pro­­duction line in Fockbek. Even as mo­­tor­­homes producer, Hobby has taken a leading role in Europe for many years. With about 60 caravans and 25 motor-homes, Hobby offers a vast selection to its customers. The manufacturing of the caravans and motorhomes takes place in two ultra-modern production fa­­cilities – at the Hobby caravan factory and at the motorhomes factory built in 2003.



The company now looks back on a 40- year success story: In 1967 the trai­­ned naval architect Harald Striewski founded the Hobby caravan factory in Fock­­bek near Rendsburg. In a garage, to­­geth­­er with a handful of employees, he fa­­bri­­cated the first of his self-designed caravans. Today the Hobby group, which includes since 1998 the Bavaria-based Fendt Caravan GmbH, reaches a market share of about 40 per cent in Germany and internation­­ally of about 35 per cent in the caravan market segment. The north German industrial company places much value on the training of professionals in the commercial and trades sector. Currently 30 young people are completing a well substantiated vocational training as wood me­­chanics at the company-owned train­­ing workshop.
