2018 Caravan of the year

This year’s Caravan of the Year Competition features strongly in The Great Outdoors Guide this year. We have a fantastic selection of on- and off-road caravans brimming with great features and modern designs. There are smaller caravan options to choose from and larger units that offer relaxed and spacious holidaying with all the comforts at close quarters. This year the manufacturers have certainly produced some stunning caravans that will be the envy at any campsite or when spotted traversing the highways and byways to the best vacation spots in Africa in search of adventure. It is evident from the votes we received from caravan owners, prospective owners and many other admirers that they are keen to air their likes surrounding their favourite caravan choices and that they are passionate about these choices. Our readers voiced their opinions by voting and submitting their reviews, and we listened to what they had to say.


Throughout the year The Great Outdoors Guide has run a poll to determine the top 10 caravans for 2018. All nominations, reader reviews and votes for the competition were done in a public voting format allowing anyone to vote for their desired caravan model and manufacturer. This year we have had a tremendous response across all of the competitions and if last year’s edition of The Great Outdoors Guide is anything to go by, we will achieve incredible growth both in page count, readership and exposure for our clients. 2019 is going to be a great year for The Great Outdoors Guide and we look forward to the participation of manufacturers, advertisers and the public alike. The only way to welcome in the great outdoors is to get a copy of The Great Outdoor Guide and discover your particular adventure. You voted – we listened!
