Your caravan is your opportunity to escape for a weekend, to take big adventures or simply to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends over dinner. So getting the purchase right to avoid your caravan spending more time in the service centre than pitched at a campsite, is all-important.
That's why we launched our Owner Satisfaction Awards in 2012 - to help you and other caravan owners buy with confidence. And, since the launch, the Awards have got bigger and better every year.
Your chance to influence the industry
Manufacturers and dealerships take the Owner Satisfaction Awards very seriously. It allows them to evaluate and improve products and services, meaning that, ultimately, we all receive better caravans and the best possible service.
But we can't do it without you - so please help us make the 2020 Awards the best yet! If you've purchased a new or used caravan since 1st January 2016, we'd love you to take part.
We want to find out who you think the best manufacturer of new caravans is, which caravans fare best over time and which dealership provides the best service - not just when you purchase, but after sales care, too.
Tell it how it is
Did you buy new or used? How were you treated during the purchase? Have you ever had any issues with your caravan since? And were you satisfied with any repairs your caravan may have had and the service you received?
This is your opportunity to reward those that do things well - or name and shame those that 'could do better'!
Says Sarah Wakely, Editor-in-Chief of Practical Caravan: "Our annual survey of new and used caravans plus supplying dealers is an opportunity for our readers to tell the industry how it's doing. It offers a reason to celebrate all that's good in the industry but, more importantly, the results provide a rich resource to help our readers buy better."
How to have your say
To take part in our survey, simply click here and start giving us you're feedback. The online form takes around ten minutes to complete. Your answers are saved as you progress, so you can come back to the form at a later stage if you don't have time to complete the survey in one go.
Your data will not be used for any marketing purposes at all without your express permission.
You could be a winner, too
And, while the caravan manufacturers and dealerships are picking up their gold and silver awards, you could be rewarded for taking part in the Owner Satisfaction Survey too, with free nights on a UK campsite. All survey respondents will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three great stays at a Camping and Caravanning Club site. That's another opportunity to enjoy spending time in your caravan.
