To prepare you all properly for the year ahead, CaravanTimes has asked some Caravan and Motorhome experts to recommend Five New Year Resolutions to promise yourselves this year, to make your 2017 as good as it can be!

In Part 1 of our two part feature, Darren Brown of Broad Lane Leisure has kindly offered his top five recommendations for New Year Resolutions:

1. Use your Caravan more often

"It may be an obvious one, but it is as simple as that. Get out on the road as often as you can and enjoy everything the outdoors has to offer."

2. Enlighten the uninitiated

"Spread the word about how much fun caravanning is to your friends. Obviously, you don't go over the top, but be a champion for caravanning and enlighten the uninitiated. There are more people out there than you think who have considered buying a Caravan but have put off making a decision about it until next year. Let them know what they are missing out on!"

3. Let's give Caravanning some "Street Cred"

"This links back to my second point; Caravanning still lacks street credibility, especially among the younger generations. Let's encourage people that Caravanning can be cool!"

4. Get families involved

"Caravanning has traditionally been a family activity. Many happy family memories are waiting to be made this year, and by inviting more of your family members along on your next Caravan trip, you'll be able to share those happy memories with them as well."

5.Venture to new places

"Caravanning enables us to explore - so do just that! Make sure you visit destinations around the UK - and even further afield - that you're dying to see. The world is waiting!"

Part 2 in our New Year Resolutions series offers more recommendations to our Motorhome owners.
