Caravan Talk 2012 Awards Now in Voting

10 Sep 2012

Caravan Talk, an online caravan and motorhome community, has announced the nominees for their first ever independent awards ceremony.

The Caravan Talk Awards all started from a single suggestion posted by a forum user back in March of this year, and has since snowballed into an industry recognized award to be presented at The Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC in October.

We managed to speak to Ben Feltwell, Marketing Manager at Caravan Talk, to ask him what he feels the awards will bring to the caravanning community and industry.

He said: “Many (caravan) awards are determined by judges in the media or the industry and they are incredibly subjective, especially considering that most caravans are only tested for a few days at most.

“Caravans are designed to be lived in and towed across the globe, so why not look for the opinions of the people who do just that; the caravanners.

“By letting the caravanners pick their own nominations you’ll see some names and companies in the running that you would probably never have heard of before. They have been nominated because of their service and qualities, not because they are the biggest.”
