Last Friday the Caravan Times were invited to the Caravan and Motorhome Club 2018 Tow Car Of The Year Awards in London. We had a front row seats for all the results and winners. SKODA's Kodiaq SE L 2.0 TDI 4x4 DSG took the top award this year, and also scooped class and category wins in the 2018 award ceremony.

The annual event, now in its 35th year, was hosted at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall. A very impressive venue to say the least. The Caravan and Motorhome Club (CAMC) clearly spared no expense in presenting a fantastic afternoon for all the guests that attended. The drink was excellent and the three course meal was top notch.

These awards are so important to the industry and consumers. It is hard to find honest and relevant information when buying a vehicle that you know will be towing along your caravan. You cannot exactly tour around your local car dealers and ask to test the towing capability of their stock.

The Caravan and Motorhome Club have 350,000 member who have a lot of confidence in the information and opinion that CAMC provide. And the news and results that come from the show helps thousands of people make the right choice when purchasing their next tow car.
