2013 Caravan Talk Awards Best Caravan Dealer Top 5 Finalists
As the results in the 2013 Caravan Talk Awards were very close, and because the results were calculated on a weighted basis factoring in both quantity of votes and quality scores out of 5 assigned by voters for specific areas, the remaining top 5 finalists have all been given equal ranking in our results.
The top 5 finalists are listed below in no specific order.
Land rover discovery 4
An enormously popular towcar for caravanners all over the country (and beyond), the Discovery 4 is powerful and versatile enough to handle anything but a fifth wheeler.
Land Rover Freelander 2
A very popular Land Rover towcar, the Freelander 2 strikes a great balance between rugged power and sleek sophistication. Excellent clearance and driving position, combined with interior design and comfort, make a great all-rounder for the caravanning market.
Ford S Max
Powerful, spacious, versatile, and full of performance-enhancing technology, the S-Max is a prime example of caravanning family towcar. The various seating options can allow for a huge amount of storage space for caravanning getaways, while the PowerShift, EcoBoost and enhanced suspension play their parts in improving on-the-road performance.
The Skoda Superb was a welcome contender in this year's Top 5 Best Towcars. Handsome design, massive storage and passenger space, with a reassuring level of quality - including that satisfying 'thunk' when you shut the door - that shows up some of the premium executive cars. Oh, and it also comes complete with a hidden umbrella in the door, a feature also found within the Rolls Royce marque.
