New caravans from Adria, Xplore and Venus star in this week’s Practical Caravan TV show, plus we head to Shrewsbury and drive the VW Touran – tune in!

The exciting Xplore 554 brings a new layout to the range for 2017, so make sure you tune in to Practical Caravan TV to see it.

Enjoy transverse island bed luxury for an entry-level price with the new-for-2017 Xplore 554. This bed is retractable, liberating extra floor space in the day, and the room has a welcoming feel to it. Beyond is a well-specced washroom.

The lounge doesn’t feel budget but is a little small, and while the kitchen’s spec again betrays its market position, you’re definitely not short-changed. Overall, it’s a pleasing addition to the range, so watch our show and don’t miss it.

This is when to tune in to Practical Caravan TV:

  • Monday 26 September at 8pm
  • Wednesday 28 September at 6pm
  • Friday 30 September at 4pm
  • Saturday 1 October at 8pm
  • Sunday 2 October at 6pm

Look for Showcase TV on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or Freeview 254 (you will need a smart TV for the latter). Don’t have these channels? Every show is streamed live online, so just click to watch

Wondering what tow car to buy next? We review the Volkswagen Touran, putting it through its paces on road and track. Tune in to see what our expert Motty makes of it.

The latest from Adria caravans is next on Practical Caravan TV – check out the 2017 Adria Adora 613 UT Thames Platinum Collection.

With this Adria you get a fresh take on the nearside fixed double bed, end washroom layout, plus a bright and generously-proportioned front lounge. There’s also tonnes of storage. It’s a smart, refreshingly modern package all wrapped in an eye-catching silver body – and that fixed bed has a trick up its sleeve. Tune in to find out what that is!

After the break we’re off to Shrewsbury to see what Oxon Hall Touring & Holiday Home Park has to offer caravanners. A finalist in the Practical Caravan Top 100 Sites Guide 2016, this campsite is open all year round, has a quiet, adult-only area and also caters for families. There’s even a handy park and ride that operates from just outside the site. Take a tour, only on Practical Caravan TV. Watch on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or Freeview 254 – or online.

Finally, don’t miss our Venus 460 review. It’s a great-value, two-berth van and the cheapest in the Venus range.

You get the traditional front parallel lounge, end washroom layout in this Venus caravan – and you might be surprised by the generously-proportioned kitchen and lounge.

Tune in to this week’s episode of Practical Caravan TV on Freeview 254, Freesat 161 and Sky 212, and we hope you enjoy watching!
