Adria and Sterling have emerged as the leading new and pre-owned caravan brands in the Practical Caravan Owner Satisfaction Awards 2014

The industry’s great and good along with hundreds of caravan owners turned out for our awards ceremony, held at the Caravan and Motorhome Show at Manchester’s EventCity, to celebrate the best caravan manufacturers and supplying dealers at work in the UK today.

And Britain’s caravan owners had their say in record numbers, helping to make it our most revealing reliability survey yet. 

It’s the second year we’ve run the awards, conducted in partnership with specialist caravan insurer Coast, and already it’s the UK's most in-depth look at how happy owners are with their caravans. 

We can say with confidence that the firms which chart in our league tables really go the extra mile to ensure customers are left happy and fulfilled with the caravan they’ve bought and holidayed in.

We invited Practical Caravan readers who bought either a new or pre-owned caravan since January 2009 to rate their caravan and their supplying dealer. Nearly 2500 replied in detail, up from 1729 last year.

Last year’s results saw Bailey top the league table for new caravans, scoring the highest overall satisfaction rating, while Adria was the leading brand for pre-owned caravans.

For the full details, lists of best-performing dealers, and analysis from the survey, read the March 2014 issue of Practical Caravan, on sale from 31 January 2014.
