National award success for Glossop Caravans

Celebrations are in full swing at Glossop Caravans - which has scored a near clean sweep in three Dealer Special Caravan categories in The Caravan Club's prestigious Caravan Design Awards 2016. The leading UK dealers scooped all three places in both the Two Berth Dealer Special Caravan and Over Four Berth Special Dealer Caravan sections of the Awards, announced at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2015 at the NEC, Birmingham on Friday October 16.


The family-run company - which marks 40 successful years in business in 2016 - also achieved second and third places in the Three-Four Berth Dealer Special Caravan category.

"We're delighted that our popular, high-specification Special Edition caravans have scored so highly in these high-profile and influential annual awards," said Brian and Stan Laing, Joint Managing Directors of Glossop Caravans.

"We work very closely with market-leading manufacturers Coachman, Elddis and Swift to create a range of specially-customised models each year - all offering a wealth of unique features and excellent value for money.

"This is a great way to highlight our commitment to quality, choice and customer satisfaction as we look forward to celebrating four decades of first-class service throughout 2016."

Grenville Chamberlain, Chairman of the Caravan Club, who announced the results, commented: "The Caravan Club is always keen to encourage a wide range of people - from all walks of life - to enjoy caravanning holidays and entice new generations of people into becoming caravanners and campers.

"The information gathered in this competition enables people to make an informed choice regarding their choice of vehicle. Our thanks are extended to the manufacturers and dealers who entered, and our congratulations go to the winners."

The panel of independent judges for the Caravan Design Awards follow rigorous scoring checklists - assessing everything from comfort and kitchen design to general safety and security.
