2012 has been a really exciting year for us at CaravanTimes and to celebrate, we've been running our biggest ever competition over the past two weeks.

We asked you to vote for your favourite caravan, dealer, towcar, innovation and caravan park of the year, and in return four lucky winners will get a prize from our special Christmas hamper.

This year's goodies include a classic caravan calendar and a campervan cookbook, while our top prize was an Amazon Kindle Fire tablet computer.

The deadline has passed and now it's time to announce the lucky winners.

To find out who won the popular vote in each category and if you were lucky enough to scoop an early Christmas present, click on the video on the left.

And for a full detailed breakdown of the votes in each category, click here to visit our forum.

Finally, we'd just like to wish each and every one of you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
