Elddis motorhome ranges triumphed again last week at the 20th Caravan and Motorhome Club Motorhome Design Awards - with 4 Category wins and a further 6 runners' up places!
Coachbuilts under £45,000:
Elddis Accordo 105 – WINNER
Our compact Elddis Accordo coachbuilt range is hugely popular, packing a punch in a competitive market. Its award-winning attributes shine through – this is a motorhome that offers exceptional value for money.
Compass Avantgarde 115 – 2ND PLACE
Our smallest of the Compass Motorhome range – the 2-berth Avantgarde 115 – wowed the judges yet again. For the past three years, the title has been lifted by sister-brand Elddis’ 115 – the layout’s popularity mirrored by consistent retail performance.
Coachbuilts £49,000 - £55,000:
Elddis Encore 255 – WINNER
Our Elddis Encore range has long excelled at providing Customers with seemingly endless specification and style as standard. This all-inclusive package clearly resonated with the Judges, as the Elddis Encore 255 shook off eight competitor ranges, including several Industry giants!
In addition, our Dealer Special ranges, which are built by us and based on standard product but with bespoke additions, also had an extremely successful evening.
This year, Richard Baldwin Motorhomes were delighted to win not one, but two top spots in the hotly-contested Dealer Special categories with their Elddis-built 'Masters Collection' range of coachbuilt motorhomes and van conversions.
2-berth Coachbuilt Dealer Specials:
Richard Baldwin Motorhomes Masters Collection ‘Donatello’ – WINNER
Richard Baldwin Motorhomes Masters Collection ‘Picasso’ – 2ND PLACE

3-4-berth Coachbuilt Dealer Specials:
Richard Baldwin Motorhomes Masters Collection ‘Rubens’ – WINNER

Over 4 berth Dealer Specials
Previous winners of the coveted Dealer Special awards, Vehicles 4 Leisure were highly commended for their Elddis-built Prestige range. The Prestige range - based on Elddis Autoquest motorhomes, Accordo motorhomes and Autoquest campervans - continues to go from strength to strength and proves a consistent favourite with motorhomers.
Vehicles for Leisure Elddis Prestige 196 – 2ND PLACE
The results of the 20th Caravan and Motorhome Club Motorhome Design Awards were announced at NEC Birmingham on Friday 22 February 2019.
Judging took place during the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show, where no less than 99 vehicles were scrutinised by the independent panel of nine judges.
Vehicles were assessed according to the following criteria, including: electrics and safety; comfort; kitchen; washrooms; heating and ventilation systems; technical and practical. And although the judges did not drive the vehicles, the scoring of the vehicles still evaluated driving elements such as seating positions, handbrake positions, visibility, passenger safety, comfort and driver ergonomics.
Grenville Chamberlain, Chairman of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, announced the results of the 2019 Awards. He said: “This competition goes from strength to strength and continues to provide an invaluable source of data for consumers looking to purchase a motorhome.”
Rachel Moncrieff, Erwin Hymer Group UK Ltd Marketing & Communications Manager represented the Group’s Elddis and Compass brands at the ceremony and tells us: “To be presented with the award for best motorhome in not one, but two of the Coachbuilt categories is a great honour and achievement. It proves that we hold our own in a hugely competitive motorhome market, winning at both entry and mid-range level.
“In addition, our Retailer Special ranges account for a sizeable proportion of our sales and so we are delighted that the Caravan and Motorhome Club recognise the importance of these ranges to the Industry as a whole.
“With a further two wins, backed by a raft of runners up in the Dealer Special Categories, it really was Elddis’ night!”
