Airstream International 684 has been named 'Best Caravan' again by The Caravan Club.
The results of the fourteenth Caravan Club Caravan Design Awards were announced at the NEC, Birmingham, United Kingdom on Friday 20th February 2009. And for the second year in succession the Airstream International 684 has been named 'Best Caravan' again by The Caravan Club.
Forty two vehicles were submitted for the awards which aim to provide Club members, and caravanners in general, with fair and objective assessments of the vehicles submitted for scrutiny. All manufacturers are invited to submit entries.
The panel of independent Judges and Technical Researchers from the Caravan Design Awards follow rigorous scoring checklists and assess everything from sitting comfort, standing headroom, kitchen design, storage, switches, wiring, security, repair and warranty arrangements and general safety.
Airstream's category - 'Any Caravan Over �18,000', is regarded as THE category to win and featured entries from all of the major (and minor) manufacturers who enter the vehicle they consider to be their best.
Grenville Chamberlain, Chairman of The Caravan Club, who announced the results commented, "The Club would like to thank the manufacturing industry for wholeheartedly supporting these awards. We offer our warm congratulations to the winners and hope their success in these competitions translates to booming sales of their products in the future."
Michael Hold, who accepted the award on behalf of Airstream said, "It is a great honour to win this prestigious award for the second year in succession. It is the highest accolade any manufacturer can receive in the UK caravan industry and firmly cements Airstreams' place as the most luxurious travel trailer available."
The Caravan Club represents the interests of one million caravanners, motor caravanners and trailer tenters and offers an unrivalled network of quality sites in the UK with a choice of around 3,000 locations.
