Tent Owner Satisfaction Awards

Tent Awards 2022The Camping and Caravanning Club is pleased to announce the winners of the latest Tent Owner Satisfaction Awards.

The sixth Tent Owner Satisfaction Awards come from the results of our most recent Tent Survey, which measures how tents have performed from their owners’ perspective. It’s based on information supplied freely by those who have bought a new tent, folding camper or trailer tent since 2017 and completed the survey, which ran from November 2019 to August 2021. And for the second time, we’ve asked about awnings.

The survey took place through 2020 and 2021 so it covers an unusual camping environment, which is reflected in some of the results.

You can view the results for each category below and see how things have changed since the awards began in 2016. Our aim is to help you if you’re looking for your next tent. The survey has also become invaluable for tent manufacturers, who have welcomed the comments made by owners and begun to incorporate some of the suggestions in their new models.

It’s worth noting at least a million tents are bought every year, in a market that’s worth over £135 million (according to outdoor industry analyst Profile Outdoors). The UK is a major player in a European tent market that’s expected to be worth £1 billion by 2023 (source: Research and Markets). For 2018, UK sales of tents and caravan/motorhome awnings combined were worth some £9.6 million, according to another analyst, Statista.

We would like to thank everyone who has taken part in any of our surveys. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us produce the most informative survey of its kind.
