The readers of Practical Caravan and members of the Camping and Caravanning Club were surveyed and requested to provide feedback on their experience when buying either a new or preowned touring caravan. The objective was to find out who was the best manufacturer of the UK touring caravans on the market today.
The 2023 Owner Satisfaction Awards winners have now been announced at The Camping and Caravanning Club’s annual industry dinner, held at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix, on 8th December 2022. 23 categories were awarded at this prestigious event, based on the satisfaction rating given to them by owners who had completed the 2023 Owner Satisfaction Survey.
And the winner of Best Manufacturer of New Caravans for 2023, receiving the gold award, is ……Knaus
Mike Lake, UK Agent for Knaus, Weinsberg and T@B caravans and motorhomes, illustrated what this meant to the brand, saying, “What a way to start 2023, Knaus being voted winners of the best caravan manufacturer available in the UK. And unlike many media awards, issued on the back of advertising spend, this one is voted for by our customers”.
This is the sixth time that Practical Caravan has held its Owner Satisfaction Awards in partnership with The Camping and Caravanning Club, and a record number of completed surveys were received this year, totalling 4,735. This is a remarkable increase from the 3,449 who responded to the 2021 survey, giving this industry its most comprehensive and reliable owner survey to date.
Rob Ganley, Editor-in-Chief of Camping & Caravanning, the monthly magazine of the Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “The Owner Satisfaction Awards have huge value for Club members. More than 11,000 campers have taken the time to tell us greatly how their unit has fared in the field this year. The findings are an essential read for anyone planning to buy their next camping unit in the year ahead.”
Sarah Wakely, Editor-in-Chief of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome at Future Publishing, said: “We’re delighted that so many readers of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome, and members of The Camping and Caravanning Club, took the time and opportunity to have their say in our survey this year. With their help, we’ve produced our most comprehensive set of awards ever, which are a brilliant guide for those looking to buy a caravan or motorhome, whether new or pre-owned.”
