Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly (MMM) and Which Motorhome have announced the motorhomes that have been shortlisted for their 2014 awards.
 
This is now the tenth year of the MMM awards and the third year running that MMM has joined with Which Motorhome to create a combined awards, which recognise the best new campervans and motorhomes for sale in the UK.  The awards are sponsored by the Caravan Club and the winners will be presented with their awards at Searcey’s in Knightsbridge, London on Friday 6th December.
 
Expert and experienced judges from MMM and Which Motorhome looked at all the models new to the UK market or that have undergone significant design or specification upgrades. The judges considered the following factors; innovation in design; the functionality of the layout; the build quality and overall usability; how the vehicle performs on the road and on the campsite; value for money.  
The shortlist for each category is as below:

  • Bilbo’s Space

Editor of Which Motorhome and head of the judging panel, Peter Vaughan, commented:
 
"The competition for awards nominations this year was the strongest we've seen in years and we examined over 160 vehicles before arriving at this shortlist of 32. Clearly the motorhome industry's R&D departments have been working flat out in the last year – with some superb results."

 

 

 
While Daniel Attwood, Managing Editor of Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly commented:
 
“These awards are the most important in the industry and the motorhomes shortlisted by our expert judges are the finest of a very impressive range of 2014 models."

A fair spread of all the makes that advertise in their mags, though I give them a bravery award for omitting Swift and their over-priced offerings.  Pound for pound the new Baileys conquer everything in their tracks, apart from some dodgy layouts.
