Get the low-down on 2018’s best new and used motorhomes for sale in the UK as voted for by you, as we announce our Owner Satisfaction Awards winners

It’s been a great night for Vantage!

The British company scooped not one but two of the top trophies at Practical Motorhome’s Owner Satisfaction Awards tonight, run in partnership with The Camping and Caravanning Club.

First, scoring a satisfaction rating of 89%, Vantage was crowned the top manufacturer of new motorhomes.

Then it ‘did the double’, also picking up the prize for the best supplying dealer of new motorhomes, with a superb score of 97%.

Celebrating the best

In the new-motorhome manufacturer section, Shire was only just behind Vantage in second place (88%), with German manufacturer Knaus third (85%).

Dethleffs, Rimor, Hymer and WildAx also won Gold Awards, while the top-rated brand in the Silver Awards section was France’s Chausson (78%).

And two of those brands made a repeat appearance when Club President Julia Bradbury handed out the prize for the best manufacturer of pre-owned ’vans – it was a joint win for Chausson and Hymer, both scoring 80%.

Meanwhile, Dolphin Motorhomes on the south coast won the coveted ‘best supplying dealer of pre-owned motorhomes’ accolade, with an 88% satisfaction rating.

It’s all thanks to you!
