Caravan Club is the fifth episode of the first series of The Inbetweeners. It first aired on 22 May 2008 on E4.

Plot[edit]

Jay invites the rest of the gang to come to a branch of the Caravan Club in Camber with his family, in order to prove that he has been successful with girls. Jay promises his friends they will meet a girl and even gives Simon the number of a seemingly sexually active teenage girl- who he exchanges a number of text messages with.

Will, Simon and Neil arrive and their experience does not get off to a good start - as the boys are eating dinner in the Cartwrights’ caravan, Jay’s dad goes to the toilet in a loud and unhygienic manner.

Later, the boys head off to the main building in the complex for a disco. Will is offered sex by a goth girl but loses his chance when he decides to take his shoes off and slide across the hall floor during an attempt to become better acquainted with her. Supportively goaded by Jay, Simon approaches the aforementioned sexually active girl who Jay himself claims to have had sex with in the past (as well as her younger sister Susanne). However, when he leads her outside and takes his pants off, she is shocked and reveals she does not want sex, before running inside to tell her parents. Simon angrily confronts Jay and it becomes apparent Jay had lied about his own sexual experiences with her. Meanwhile, Will’s shoes have been stolen by a group of eight-year-olds, and he takes to getting one of them into a headlock to get them back. The boys then head off - albeit without Neil, who cannot be found - before Simon can get in trouble for his earlier stunt with the girl.

The following morning, the boys find Neil and he explains that he slept in Simon's car. However, it is only on the dual-carriageway on the way home that Neil reveals that he spent the night with the goth, who earlier rejected Will, and had been performing sex acts on each other in Simon’s car, prompting a disgusted reaction from his friends who had been commenting on their wet seats. The boys are then left on the side of the road. While Jay and Will argue about whether or not Jay had lied about his success with girls and the nature of the caravan club in general (Jay believes he is excused, as Neil had by chance been successful with one female) Simon confronts a confused Neil regarding the state of his car following the sexual acts in which Neil was involved. Will's voice over comments on their experiences during the episode.
