Stuffed with seven exciting new-season models, be sure to watch this week’s NEC Motorhome and Caravan Show special episode of Practical Caravan TV

Prepare to be wowed by the all-new Adria caravan that opens the latest episode of Practical Caravan TV.

It’s the 2017 Adria Alpina 613UL Colorado. Replacing the Astella, inside and out this striking-looking silver tourer is dripping with luxury.

It’s stylish, too. Chic, concave lockers and ambient LED lighting give the U-shaped lounge a classy feel, and you can relax in style on the corner headrests. Clever floating wardrobes ‘hang’ over the twin single beds, which are both adjustable so you can raise the head end if you’d like to sit up and read.

Tune in to see the offside kitchen that’s generous in terms of space, spec, storage and style, and the rather swish end washroom.

So don’t miss our show! You’ll find Practical Caravan TV on the Showcase TV channel, on Freesat 161, Sky 212 and Freeview 254 (you will need a smart TV for the latter). Don’t have these channels? Watch online from your laptop, smartphone, tablet or computer using our live stream

Next, we’ve another impressive luxury van – the Alaria TI, the new top-of-the-range model from Lunar Caravans. It costs over £32,000, so tune in to find out what you get for your money!

Check out the carbon-fibre front end adorned with LEDs, the self-levelling system, the snazzy alloy wheels and every Al-Ko goodie you could wish for. But maybe the most eye-catching features lie within.

Join our Group Editor Alastair Clements as he reclines in the L-shaped lounge, chooses what colour mood lighting he wants and ponders what he’d fill that cocktail cupboard with. There’s also a transverse island bed that can extend to an impressive length of 6ft 4in. This 2017 Alaria TI review is one you do not want to miss.

We then pay a visit to Bailey Caravans and review two 2017-season models, both with centre washrooms, starting with the Unicorn Cabrera.

It’s all about that central washroom in the Bailey Unicorn Cabrera and despite being a single-axle van, there’s a good amount of space in here. It’s light and bright, and just check out that super shower! But the rear island bed will only accommodate caravanners under 6ft tall.

And it’s much the same in the 2017 Bailey Unicorn Pamplona. Well, not quite, because this is the twin-axle version! Unsurprisingly, then, everything’s on a bigger scale here – apart from the island bed, which is the same length as that of the Cabrera. Watch this week’s Practical Caravan TV show and see our full reviews of both these new Bailey caravans.

There’s so much more after the break that you really do not want to miss out! So make sure you tune in on Sky 212, Freeview 254 or Freesat 161, or click to watch our live stream.

We learn more about Bailey Australia, which started importing British vans and now builds bespoke tourers for the Aussie market. And make sure you take a look around the Australian Bailey Rangerfinder with its slide-out section.

Next, Peter Baber reviews the 2017 Caravelair Antarès 335, which is coming to the UK exclusively through the Marquis dealership network. And it can be yours for just under £12,000!

Tailored to the wishes of British caravanners, you get a decent spec despite its budget price tag and diminutive dimensions. And it’s light, so you don’t need to have a huge tow car. Check out this dinky two-berth on Practical Caravan TV!

We return to a British-built caravan for our next review with the Coachman Vision 630. This five-berth tourer feels spacious and is clearly built with families in mind – just take a look at that dinette and those cosy fixed bunk beds.

Tune in on Freesat 161, Freview 254 or Sky 212 to see why our Alastair likes the kitchen and the family-sized end washroom of this twin-axle caravan.

Finally, enjoy the Italian flair of the monocoque Wingamm Rookie L, as we take a quick look at the company’s first four-berth caravan. It’s a van in which you can enjoy real peace and quiet – and a surprising amount of headroom. See it for yourself in this week’s episode.

After such a jam-packed show, we’re sorry to say that we’ve reached the end of Practical Caravan TV series two. But don’t worry, we’ll be back very soon with our third series. We hope you’ve enjoyed it and thanks for watching!
