Caravanning has a unique community feel, says expert

 Posted by Linda Davidson

People with Vaillant Caravan Water Heaters go caravanning because they enjoy the community feeling, an expert has said.

Jon Dale, publicity manager for the Camping and Caravanning Club, said that the leisure pursuit is still so popular because in day-to-day life lots of Brits do not see enough of their family.

Many people live in different parts of the country from their extended family and going caravanning provides a unique opportunity to come together with aunts, uncles and cousins that they may not otherwise see, Mr Dale explained.

"People come together when they go on a caravan holiday and embrace the concept. They cook together, they clean together, so it is really a community spirit which you can't always get when you travel abroad because not many people can afford to go," he said.

Some of the best caravan sites in the UK are in the south west of the country, supanet.com reported, with a site in Devon reaching the number one spot the top ten.
