Aahh, the Caravan Survey. This is where the Reader Panel began. One of our colleagues asked for information about caravan owners and the different type of caravans that people have and we didn’t have a clue.
So we decided to set up the Reader Panel so solve problems like not knowing what is more popular, a static or towing caravan.
(The answer was a towing caravan – around 67% of respondents who owned a caravan had one of these.)

The most popular reasons given by Reader Panellists for eating out were for a birthday, anniversary or to catch up with friends.
