Elddis, Compass, Buccaneer and Xplore Caravans all awarded maximum rating in the revolutionary new Buyers Guide.

The Caravan and Motorhome Club, the trusted experts, have assessed the latest caravans on the market to provide you with the information you need to make an informed purchase, so you can hit the road and head off on a new adventure.

The Caravan and Motorhome Club has compiled the Caravan Design Awards Buyers Guide 2022 which is packed full of information about the latest and most innovative caravans.

An independent, expert and knowledgeable panel carried out full technical specification, design, use of space and usability reviews of 66 new-to-market caravans, based on the important considerations when buying a caravan, to help provide the information you’ll need to help with your next caravan purchase.

Nick Lomas, Director General of the Caravan and Motorhome Club said, ““The Caravan and Motorhome Club is pleased to present the 2022 Caravan Design Awards Buyers Guide.

“Caravan holidays have never been more popular so it’s important that we gather together the relevant information to share with members and prospective caravan buyers.

“Our expert panel has assessed huge volumes of data from websites, brochures, handbooks and entry forms. Sixty six new-season caravans were assessed on their bed sizes, kitchen equipment, layout, heating, security, payload and much more. This guide gives buyers the information they need to make an informed decision when buying a new 2022 caravan. The guide covers small, lightweight caravans right up to the larger 8-foot wide caravan and everything in between.”

Erwin Hymer Group UK entered a total of 25 caravans from the new 2022 Season Elddis, Compass, Buccaneer and Xplore ranges.

Eight of the entrants were awarded the top rating of 5 Stars, with a further seven scoring 4.5 Stars.

With top ratings for every brand in the Erwin Hymer Group UK caravan portfolio and across all categories, we are thrilled with the feedback from the army of judges.
