Inside the award-winning Endeavour B64 campervan

The Ford Transit-based Endeavour B64 campervan is 6 metres long and has an MPTLM of 3,500kgs, making it suitable to drive by anyone holding a full UK driving licence, without needing a C1 entitlement. Powered by the latest 2.0 litre 155bhp engine, complete with a 6-speed automatic gearbox, this 4-berth model features a front lounge, with two fold-down rear travel seats, that converts into either twin singles or a double bed at night. At the rear of the vehicle are a well-equipped rear kitchen and a cleverly designed wet room, featuring a space-saving revolving tambour partition screen, whilst up above the front lounge is an additional double bed in a pop-top roof.

Inside the award-winning Alora 69-4S narrow-bodied motorhome

In contrast, the Alora 69-4S is one of three new narrow-bodied motorhomes that combine the flexibility of a campervan with the comfort of a coachbuilt vehicle. Again, built on the Ford Transit platform this motorhome is seven metres in length but only just over two metres in width, making it not only easier to drive but also ensuring that it weighs in at that all-important 3,500kg mark. This time powered by a 2.0 litre 130bhp engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox (with an automatic gearbox available as a cost upgrade), the 4-bert Alora 69-4S features a parallel front lounge, with two fold-down rear travel seats, which converts into a double bed at night. Moving through the vehicle there is a well-equipped central kitchen and a cleverly designed wet room, featuring a sliding vanity unit and a space-saving revolving tambour partition, whilst at the rear is a raised transverse fixed double bed over a full-width end garage.

The Motorhome and Campervan Design Awards offer fair, independent, and objective assessments of the vehicles submitted for scrutiny. The information and data gathered during the judging process are invaluable in enabling people to make informed choices when buying a new motorhome or campervan.

The Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show was held between Tuesday 13th - Sunday 18th February 2024 at the NEC in Birmingham

Judging took place during the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show at the NEC in February and via a desktop assessment before the physical inspection of the vehicles. A total of sixty motorhomes and campervans were examined by an independent panel of judges, followed by a rigorous scoring checklist assessing everything from comfort, practicality, safety, and security.

Commenting on the receipt of these coveted awards, Bailey of Bristol Managing Director Nick Howard said: “Firstly, a big thank you to all at The Caravan and Motorhome Club for all the energy they put into running this competition and for choosing two of our models as their category winners”.

Secondly, this award success is testimony to the amount of work our Product Development Team has undertaken in strengthening our motorhome and campervan portfolio over the past twelve months. The fact that the two award winners are from newly launched ranges in new product sectors shows how far we have come as a motorised leisure vehicle manufacturer” he added.
