Extended Hobby Watertightness Guarantee: Vehicles are now Covered for 12 years

Hobby is extending its current watertightness guarantee for its caravans and motorhomes from 5 years to an impressive 12 years.

All new vehicles from the 2024 model year onwards will benefit from the extended guarantee. Europe’s most popular caravanning manufacturer wants to offer its customers a better service and is demonstrating the confidence it has in the durability and quality of its own products by taking this important step. The caravan and motorhome manufacturer from northern Germany is proud to have reached this important milestone and to be offering its customers this new, additional benefit. To ensure that a caravan or motorhome remains watertight in the long term, all Hobby customers still need to have an annual inspection carried out by an authorised Hobby dealer, which is subsequently documented in a test report. In addition, customers can log in to the Hobby members’ area and set a handy reminder for when their next watertightness test is due and get in direct contact with their local dealer. “Our customers are the top priority for us and our dealers. The extended watertightness guarantee is an important statement for Hobby and offers our customers extra security and certainty that our caravans and motorhomes meet the highest quality standards. The twelve-year guarantee also clearly sets us apart from most of our competitors,” says Hobby Internal Sales Manager Oliver Schnepel. It is crucial to carry out watertightness tests on caravans and motorhomes regularly to ensure that any leaks can be identified and repaired in good time. This includes checking the roof, windows, doors, joints and seals. More serious damage and expensive repairs can be avoided if vehicle leaks are detected and rectified at an early stage.
