Bailey, Venus and Adria caravan reviews

The recently-revealed and fresh-thinking new Pursuit range of Bailey caravans also stars in our March 2017 magazine. We review the Bailey Pursuit 400-2, a two-berth that’s priced at £14,599 and has an MTPLM of 1090kg.

Need more space? We also rate the new Venus 590/6, a lightweight caravan with sleeping accommodation for up to six. Its smart, contemporary look belies its entry-level market positioning and we think kids we love making the rear dinette area their own.

And if you like modern interiors, check out our review of the eye-catching new Adria Altea 362LH Forth. Another lightweight caravan – this time a four-berth – its cleverly packaged washroom and generous lounge are well worth a look.

We also put two exciting new tow cars through their paces in this month’s magazine. Grab a copy to see how the Jaguar F-Pace and Subaru Levorg fare when our Motty puts them through their paces on road and track.

Wondering what tow car on the used market will tick all your boxes? How about a Mazda CX-5? Our expert shares his top buying tips.
