Caravanner of the year winners

28/04/2016

John and Jenny Marsland emerged victorious after they impressed the judges in the final episode.

The programmes were filmed at Ferry Meadows Club site and aired on BBC2 at 8pm on 20th and 27th April. They followed the fun and drama as motorhomers, caravanners and campervanners competed against each other. 

About the show

Six top enthusiasts (all Club members) battled it out across two highly charged weekends to win the Club's inaugural competition.

The competitors were faced with a variety of challenges designed to test:

  • Manoeuvring
  • Navigation
  • Hospitality
  • Caravanning know-how

Their efforts were then judged by our panel of experts:

  • Grenville Chamberlain (Club Chairman)
  • Lucy Jayne Grout (vintage caravan restorer and designer)
  • Martin Dorey (BBC series The Camper Van Cook)
  • Andy Harris (motorhome journalist)

The winners

The victors, John and Jenny Marsland, said, “We entered the competition to show that you don’t need to spend a fortune to be adventurous and rounded caravanners."

"We also wanted people to see how beautiful our Cheltenham caravan is and to show how it has stood the test of time."

"We had great fun during the competition heats and we met such lovely people along the way. To put the icing on the cake, we won the title of Caravanner of the Year, which has made us very proud of our pastime.”
