Ideas for every pocket

Between Monday 5 and Sunday 11 December, enjoy our budget special TV show. The first of our Christmas specials stars caravans including the Venus 460, the Sprite Major 4 EB and the Xplore 554, plus a wallet-friendly tow car.

The following week, we’re off to the other end of the touring spectrum with our luxury special. We bring you an indulgent quartet of caravan reviews featuring models from Buccaneer, Bailey, Adria and Lunar.

And of course you need a prestige tow car to match – how about the Jaguar XF? Watch between 12 and 18 December.

Bring the family together this Christmas with our family-friendly caravanning special. Watch at the times listed above from 19 December until Christmas Day.

This neatly-packaged festive special gives you another chance to see a collection of reviews, including the twin-axle Elddis Avanté 866. Our experts awarded this model a 4.5-star rating, so you don’t want to miss this! Or how about the Sprite Freedom FB?

And last, but by no means least, it is our ‘small and funky’ Practical Caravan TV special. Tune in between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day for another chance to see our Barefoot review, the ingenious new-for-2017 Swift Basecamp and more.

So don’t forget to tune in to Practical Caravan TV’s Christmas special shows this month. Watch on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or via our live stream.

And from everyone at Practical Caravan, have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic 2017!
