The Owner Satisfaction Awards 2023 for awnings, caravans, folding campers, tents and motorhomes announced in UK

The Owner Satisfaction Awards 2023, assessed via joint surveys undertaken by The Camping and Caravanning Club and the magazines, Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome between January and October 2022, have revealed which caravans, awnings, folding campers, tents and motorhomes that their owners in the UK like the most.

The two most popular awnings were from the Vango brand: Kela and Galli. The winner of the Best Caravan Porch Awning was Sunncamp, and the winner of the Best Caravan Full Awning was Isabella. The winner of the Best Motorhome Awning was Vango.

This year, 69% of the owners had awnings with inflatable tube frames, down from 79% the previous year, and 84% of owners said they would buy the same make of awning again.

The results of the Caravan Owner Satisfaction Awards 2023 were split between new and pre-owned caravans. The winner for new caravans was Knaus, with Eriba in second place and Adria in third – just ahead of the highest scoring UK manufacturer, Coachman.

For pre-owned caravans, Adria took the top place, with Coachman and Eriba in joint second place.

The Best Van Converter (direct sales) for the second year running was the UK manufacturer, Bilbo’s.
