WELCOME TO Practical Caravan’s Tourer of the Year Awards 2011. After months of deliberation, the Practical Caravan team is delighted to reveal its choices for the best caravans of the year.

In picking the winners, we pride ourselves on balancing considerations of price, quality, weight and practicality with crucial but more intangible factors such as showroom appeal and the impact a product has on the market.

Something unique

It goes without saying that a Tourer of the Year winner stands out from rivals. It always gives buyers something unique, and yet we steer clear of things we don’t believe will sell. In short, we believe the Practical Caravan Awards most accurately reflect the views of buyers.

 

I hope you enjoy them.
