During the hustle and bustle of the October NEC Motorhome and Caravan Show the Caravan and Motorhome Club assemble a crack team of industry specialists to battle against the masses and review dozens of caravans for the Friday night award show. Now the dust has settled we have the results and a nifty little video.

Taking part in the Caravan Design Award testing is no small task. The grading starts on the Sunday before the show opens and the lucky judges stop have to get in, out and all round the vans until the Thursday of the show.

It is no easy task as the Club's checklist for each category is extremely thorough to ensure that the right van takes home the win.

The awards are a major part of the show and is a great way for the public to get a real and, most importantly, impartial review of all of the top caravans and lightweight touring vehicles on the market.

For the second year in a row CaravanTimes' very own Dan Cartwright has taken part to share his knowledge and love for all things caravanning. Dan was at the show at 8am and would end up back in his hotel for around 6pm, so it is a very full gig to say the very least.

Once all the results are in the Caravan and Motorhome Club spend an age in the back offices of the NEC correlating the results to find out who has won what category.

And your winners are....
