Help Some Students! Caravan Survey


Caravan_survey2011

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

We are a group of students for a technical university in Sweden! We study industrial design and are about to start a project on caravans. The goal is to design a new caravan. We are very interested in talking to and hearing from users of caravans. We need to know who we are designing a caravan for before we can actually make anything. Therefor we ask for your help.

 

We know that the most vital group of people to talk to are caravan enthusiasts, people who have many many miles under their belts and who have been in and around caravans for years. If you could please find the time to answer our survey, we would be most grateful. As we mentioned earlier, it will help us make a better caravan for the customers, for you.

 

We have prepared a list of questions, please read through it and answer as much as you feel like. the more the better, but we won't twist any arms here. We are really interested in finding out about the likes, needs and wants of caravan users.

 

finally, if you have anything you have found particularly in need of a redesign or that you feel is particularly bad, please let us know!

 

tack så mycket!

Thank you so much

love

// Isak, Mikaela, Philippa, Johanna

Okey it seems like we have a lot of views but no replies so far, if you want to help us by discussing your caravans and how you use them, just copy the questions, and paste them all into a reply, then answer the questions you feel like answering. We will now pretend that we are the owner of a caravan and answer our own questions:

What do you think when you see a caravan on the road? "i wonder where they are going"

Where do you take your caravan? norway has a lot of nice fjords, if i had a caravan i would try going there

What is the purpose of the journey? Tourism, sport activity etc. - mostly to get away from the city, to relax in my mobile home in a more country-side-environment

What is your opinion about remote control for parking the caravan? i have some experience of driving trailers, i would at least try driving without an expensive remote control system

How does your caravan reflect you, and represent you? hmm. ..it represents my will to be free!

Do you prefer using the facilities available at a camping site, or do you use the equipment in your caravan? since i like going away from society, i like using the equipment in my caravan, but if i passed a camp site i might stay for a day to use the stuff there

Do you stay at home or do you go abroad? a little bit of both

During which seasons do you use the caravan? mostly in summer but maybe i would take it for skiing

Which area of the caravan do you spend the most time in? Awning, kitchen, bedroom etc? i would spend alot of time outside the caravan, hiking the nature in the days and then returning to the caravan to cook and rest

 

etc

 

Feel free to discuss, your answers will probably be a lot different from ours, since we are just guessing!

Far too many questions from a group that is designing a caravan IMO.

Surely the most relevant questions-for caravanners-should concentrate on practicalities/style/living space/bedrooms/bathrooms/kitchens/weights and heating. Whether or not we use our 'vans 30+ weeks or less a year?

The make and model of the car I use to tow is irrelevant,it does the job. How we furnish our home is not your concern. Ditto for for the phone.

I would suggest the group spend a little more time looking at as many models of caravan as possible and their respective market share,what are the main differences between European and British caravanners wants,needs and attitudes to current caravan designs? What do you think you will offer that is different,what will be your USP?

It might be better to offer a preliminary sketch or design proposal first and then ask for comments and suggestions.

Do not be offended by my post, these are my thoughts and I think you should be aware that this is how I am.

 

Regards.

Dito too many Non Caravan questions for my liking

 

 

Hello!

Thank you for your relpies so far! Perhaps we should have been clearer at the beginning as to why we are asking certain questions. The object of this survey is to find out the mentality of the users, thier lifestyles out side the caravan. An example, if we know a large group of users have smart phones, then maybe an ipod-type dock in the stereo would be nice. Or a wifi module.

 

We know that we could ask only caravan questions, but we wanted a deeper understanding of you guys, hence the questions regarding cooking styles and furnishings. If you like modern and minimal decor, then a caravan that looks like an Irish pub would be . .. weird.

 

please dont feel that the questions should limit you, sorry for any confusion.

 

at the end of the day, customers buy caravans. If the customer is not at home in the caravan then it won't get bought. We would like to find out who we are designing for, before we do the design.

 

thank you

//Philippa

Must say I wondered that myself. If it is then by far the best thing to do is get to a caravan site and talk to the members direct, then I am sure they would get the info they require. best wishes Peter :)

Well. I read the questions but damned if I would answer such a poorly thought out attempt to obtain information. Sorry you guys. When I was at college cutting and pasting was still the real deal . .. scissors and pritt stick. The final result had to be typed up. These days far easier.

 

Do you expect people to type questions as well as answers??

 

There were three obvious alternatives in descending degrees of complication for yourselves.

 

1) set up a website where questions could be supplied and answered.

 

2) provide a table in word (doc not docx) format for people to download and edit and then post.

 

3) at least number your questions so that folk can put number and answer.

 

Do you expect that someone else will do all the work for you?? As said I was a student once. I am not trying to be nasty but . .. come on, THINK, put some effort in guys.

Far too many questions from a group that is designing a caravan IMO.

Surely the most relevant questions-for caravanners-should concentrate on practicalities/style/living space/bedrooms/bathrooms/kitchens/weights and heating. Whether or not we use our 'vans 30+ weeks or less a year?

The make and model of the car I use to tow is irrelevant,it does the job. How we furnish our home is not your concern. Ditto for for the phone.

Anything that doesn't look like someone went to Ikea and bought matching furniture and accessories. Something which looks personal and lived in.

Not really interested to be honest.

 

In general, what is your favorite style of cooking?

No one style really, like chinese I guess. But that's eating, not cooking it - I hate cooking!

 

How do you cook while living in the caravan?

On the cooker

 

How would cooking be made easier?

More pizza-delivery places. Seriously, cooking is a hateful pain in the bum but it can't be 'easier' without going into 1970s packet-food nastiness.

 

Do you use the caravan as a stationary house or as a mobile thing?

Generally go to one site, stay there, then go home. It doesn't move once on site.

Never once ona site.

Tourism and relaxation.

Lazy

 

How does your caravan reflect you, and represent you?

I don't really see it does - it's a caravan, not clothing, so not that personal.

 

Do you prefer using the facilities available at a camping site, or do you use the equipment in your caravan?

Mostly own caravan

 

Do you stay at home or do you go abroad?

In the caravan, UK only, holidays always abroad. (To be clear, going away in a caravan is a 'break', not a holiday).

 

During which seasons do you use the caravan?

So far summer and autumn. Intend to use all year round though.

 

Which area of the caravan do you spend the most time in? Awning, kitchen, bedroom etc?

Lounge/bedroom/kitchen area - all one room.

 

Do you use peripheral item such as an awning/tent?

Yes, but just for somewhere to dry off the dogs, keep shoes, etc.

 

What kind of caravan do you use? Brand, size etc

Abbey Vogue GTS 216. About 10 years old.

 

Spontaniously Good / Bad in your caravan?

Good: space for two people and end washroom with loo, sink and shower which is not part of the main room.

Bad: seats don't make comfy beds - had a bad back every single time I've slept in it.

 

What do you miss from your “real home”?

A more comfortable bed.

 

Entertainment in a caravan, what do you do?

Tend to read, walk dogs, watch TV programmes on iPad.

 

What do you do at home?

Watch TV, work. Work. Work. Endless damn work.

 

How is your house furnished? Can you describe your style?

Cluttered and eclectic.

More simple - it has to be as it is so small. Any clutter and you can't move.
