Caravan Design Awards 2021

The Caravan and Motorhome Club have compiled the Caravan Design Awards 2021 which is packed full of information about the latest and most innovative caravans.

An independent, expert and knowledgeable panel carried out full technical specification, design, use of space and usability reviews of 74 new-to-market caravans.

Brought to you by the trusted experts, the Caravan and Motorhome Club has compiled this guide, based on the important considerations when buying a caravan, to help provide the information you’ll need to help with your next caravan purchase. 

Make sure you visit your local caravan dealer and you’ll soon be heading off on your next adventure.

Nick Lomas, Director General of the Caravan and Motorhome Club said,

“The Caravan and Motorhome Club is delighted to be able to present the 2021 Caravan Design Awards Buyers Guide. The expert panel were rallied from the far corners of the UK to sift through huge volumes of data from websites, brochures, handbooks and entry forms from the comfort of their home office.  Seventy-four new-season caravans were assessed on their bed sizes, kitchen equipment, layout, heating, security, payload and much more – trust me no stone was left unturned! This carefully considered guide will provide buyers with the particulars in making an informed decision when buying a new 2021 caravan, whether you are looking at a small, lightweight caravan to the larger 8-foot wide caravan or a 2-berth van for a couple to the larger family caravans. Be sure not to leave these choices off your buying shortlist.”
