10K Giveaway

If anyone had said to me back in January 2016, “Dan, your family will have 10,000 subscribers on a YouTube channel next year that is focused towards the UK caravanning scene” I would have laughed at them from a great distance. But here is the reality: We do and we have.

A thank you from me just doesn’t seem to cut this immense milestone, so the only fitting way to celebrate and mark this occasion to to hold a give away.

Up for grabs are 10 prizes from brands and companies we have worked with over the past couple of years. For a full list of the prizes and more details about the competition, head on over to our YouTube channel, subscribe and watch this video.

And that’s it. The competition ends on November 3rd and we will be selecting 10 random names from the correct entries and contacting the winners on the phone to congratulate them.


Good luck, and a huge thank you for everyone who has subscribed to our channel and enjoyed our videos. Without your support and encouragement, this milestone would have never been reached.

Also, a huge thank you to the sponsors of this competition with their wonderful prizes, I’m sure you will agree its quite a bounty up for grabs.

So, good luck everyone, I look forward to congratulating you on the phone on November 3rd.



  1. Keep up the good work!

  5. Hi all
    Me and my family purchased a caravan in July of this year. Prior to this I didn’t know the front of a caravan from the rear. I started looking online for help, tips & advice and discovered your YouTube channel. Since then we haven’t looked back and we have been on numerous trips around UK in this short time. Having just viewed your ‘thank you video’, can we (the campbells) say a big thank you to you all for helping to make this such an enjoyable experience. Without your how to video’s I think I would now be involved in court proceedings, thank you. Congratulation on your 10k subscribers amazing.
    Keep the vids coming.

  34. Hey guys,

    We are 4 weeks into caravanning…sold everything we had and moved our 3 kids, 2 cats and dog into a 2004 Bailey Senator. We did no research beforehand and were thrown in at the deep end. We found that we were living to work and it wasn’t doing anyone any good….4 weeks in, we couldn’t be happier. If you have a moment please take a look at our blog (and give a shout out or share if you like) ourtravellingfamilycom.wordpress.com

    This prize would make for the most awesome Christmas present so fingers crossed.

    Thanks for an fantastic channel and look forward to seeing what you get up to next.

    Karen and the gang
