Caravan Club Caravanner of the Year on BBC Two – the results!

c7940635-228d-47db-b5b4-c21f821bce55

For those who haven't watched it yet, consider this a spoiler alert. The show has gained mixed reactions from caravan fans, but it's got people talking about the industry we love.

After the first episode's awning and manoeuvring challenges narrowing the competitive field to just three teams, the pressure was on to impress the judges and score the all important points. Caravan magazine gives you a round-up of what was involved in the final, before revealing the winners below.
 

The challenges

Width clearance test (“caravan limbo” as named by Caravan Club chairman Grenville). Biggest space either side of the outfit wins.

Keith’s “Back to the Future” approach after a little apprehension was impressive. Both teams of David and Ann, and John and Jenny play it safe, with the latter measuring the width distance by laying down on the floor!
 

Navigation. Find your way from Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site to a pub at a precise time. Early or late arrival will be penalised. Of course, no sat-nav usage. No major roads.

John and Jenny had a strong start, with a lot of map reading experience, while Keith and Angela were ready take out anything that gets in their way, even pigeons. Although there’s always time for a loo break. David and Ann couldn't help but hit the routes that cost them penalties.
 

Hospitality. Entertain the judges by decorating, cooking and getting creative in your caravan.

It's a round that has to be seen for yourself. Am dram, the swinging ’60s, good food and games galore!
 

Economy drive. Fill your towcar up to the brim. Don’t use more than a gallon for the challenge to reach your destination. Choose the right route for maximum economy.
 

Who was crowned Caravanner of the Year 2016?

Congratulations are in order for the newly-crowned Caravanner of the Year 2016 with the Caravan Club – John and Jenny Marsland!

Members of the Cheltenham Owners Club, John and Jenny have taken the title with their iconic vintage caravan. As John would say... Well done, sausage!
