    The Camping and Caravanning Club has joined forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines to support the industry-leading annual Caravan and Motorhome Owner Satisfaction surveys.
    They welcome feedback from anyone who has bought, owned and toured in a new or used caravan or motorhome since 1 January 2013. The surveys are now sponsored by Club Care Insurance, the insurance provider to The Camping and Caravanning Club.
    Club members and other caravan and motorhome enthusiasts are invited to complete the 2017 surveys, with the results announced in January 2017, ready to help campers plan for the season ahead. Both surveys close on 16 October 2016.
    The results will also be published in full in the March 2017 issue of Practical Caravan and April 2017 issue of Practical Motorhome, in the Club’s own February magazine and online at each of the three partners’ websites.
    The surveys are long established and their results are highly regarded by caravanners, motorcaravanners, dealers and manufacturers.
    The Motorhome Owner Satisfaction Survey was launched in 2004, and the Caravan version followed in 2012. Over the years, tens of thousands of caravan and motorhome owners have reported in depth on their experiences of buying, owning and using their outfit.
    The results are essential reading for anyone considering buying a caravan or motorhome, new or used, whether from a dealer or private sale. The information and league tables of the best performing brands and dealers will be made available to all. It also provides valuable data for caravan and motorhome manufacturers to make use of when planning and improving their own products. 
    Robert Louden MBE, the Club’s Director General, said: “The Club is delighted to join forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome for the 2017 Owner Satisfaction Surveys. The results will help holidaymakers buy smarter in future, and help manufacturers improve the quality and reliability of their products. Along with our existing Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey, they will add to the authoritative advice we’re able to provide members on all forms of camping.”
    Alastair Clements, Group editor of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome, said: “For more than a decade, the Owner Satisfaction Surveys have been helping consumers to buy better, and pushing up quality across the board. And its results can be trusted because they are based entirely on the opinions and experience of real caravanners and motorcaravanners, in the real world. We are delighted to join forces with The Camping and Caravanning Club to make these awards the best in the business.”
    Nigel Coppen, Client Director at Club Care Insurance, said: “We’re delighted to extend sponsorship of the Club’s Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey to caravans and motorhomes – the results will help people research their next purchase with confidence, and peace of mind in the brands they choose.
    “We at Club Care are passionate about providing campers with peace of mind when they’re relaxing on holiday, and that’s why Club Care Insurance products are designed by tent, caravan and motorhome enthusiasts for like-minded people.”

      Hi Dillon...we had the exact same problem many years ago..The "pink stuff" does seem to clog the flush pump thru time..My solution is we never use the stuff,we just use ordinary pine disinfectant and we have never had a problem since..We have changed 'vans 3 times since then and have flushed out each flush tank with warm water and soda crystals 'till the water runs clear and all the wee black bits have gone..
    • Cl or cs near Conway Wales .
      By nor · Posted
      i may have asked this before .  But I would like a cl or a cs with toilets showers and hook up .  It needs to have a nice easy access for me to tow .  I  would like that area because after staying near chirk . I loved Llandudno and I wanted to go to Conway castle, Caernarfon and NT places. It was quite a long way from chirk so I thought maybe stay in that area. Plus visit Anglesey, also  looking at a day trip to Ireland if that is possible .  Not much is it . . But maybe the Irish trip is a bit too much to ask and some is a bit adventurous .
