BAILEY AND ADRIA have emerged as the big winners in Practical Caravan's inaugural Owner Satisfaction Awards.

 

The survey, conducted in partnership with leisure insurance specialist Coast is the UK's most in-depth look at how happy owners are with their caravans. 

 

Bailey and Adria stood out from the results of the survey, which gathered data from nearly 1800 caravanners during 2012. Owners of Bailey caravans posted the highest satisfaction ratings with their caravans, with an 88% satisfaction rating when bought new. In second place was Sprite with 86% approval. 

 

For used caravan buyers, Adria was the top brand among those who shopped for used tourers with a hugely impressive satisfaction score of 93%, pushing Coachman into second place with 90%.
