Fifty eight vehicles were submitted for the Caravan Design Awards and the aim of the Awards is to provide Club members, and caravanners in general, with fair and objective assessments of the vehicles submitted for scrutiny.   All manufacturers are invited to submit entries.

The panel of independent Judges and Technical Researchers for the Caravan Design Awards follow rigorous scoring checklists and assess everything from sitting comfort, standing headroom, kitchen design, storage, switches, wiring, security, repair and warranty arrangements to general safety.

Grenville Chamberlain, Chairman of The Caravan Club, who announced the results commented, “It is great to see another year of fantastic support for these Awards. The Caravan Club is truly grateful to the manufacturers for their enthusiasm for these Awards.”
