Caravanner Of The Year
Six top caravanning enthusiasts are out to prove they have the skills to be named the Caravan Club’s first Caravanner of the Year.
Droopy awnings are out and only spirit-level precision works for judge Grenville Chamberlain – chairman of the Caravan Club – while a motorhome maverick, journalist Andy Harris, champions a spirit of adventure and more than a little mischief starting with an awning assembly speed trial. Otherwise known as divorce-in-a-bag, this plays out with a variety of approaches to teamwork.
But it is the challenging manoeuvres, where even a judge can come unstuck, that push everyone to their limits. Some flourish with humorous and heartfelt results, while others flounder.
But with no time to regroup, it is straight onto a caravanning favourite – the Concours D’Elegance – for some competitive polishing and primping before Grenville, Andy and guest judge Lucy-Jayne Grout have to pick the three who have earned a place in the final.
