Weights and measures

The fourth Caravan Club Lightweight Leisure Trailer Awards saw a fivefold increase in entries.

Judges and technical experts assessed everything from weights and measures to Thermal Insulation Grade and recommended tyre pressures. Further scrutiny awarded merit for build quality, ease of erection and pull down, together with sleeping and living accommodation.

The awards form part of a wide range of initiatives which the Club undertakes with the dual aims of not only allowing Club members to buy with confidence, but also of encouraging manufacturers to improve their products, thereby ensuring the industry maintains its high standards and professional reputation.

  • Trailer Tents costing £3,100 and under - Cabanon Venus DL
