The wait for your next Practical Caravan magazine fix is over, as the January 2019 issue hits shops today!
The issue kicks off with my tour of Yorkshire's East Riding and the Yorkshire Wolds, where beautiful scenery and interesting history combine to make a great year-round destination. We then head to the Lake District with the Lyon family, who celebrate Christmas surrounded by beautiful lakes and fells, and to Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland to discover more about Roman Britain.
If you're in the market for a great new family tourer, look no further than our Showroom pages, where we test out the Sprite Super Quattro FB. This 8ft-wide 2019 van has plenty of space for a family of six.
We've also got reviews of vans perfect for couples; the Bailey Phoenix 420, Compass Capiro 462, Lunar Quasar 462 and Coachman VIP 460 cover several budget options.
We test some new tugs for you, too; read an in-depth review of our current long-term test car, the Volvo XC40, as well as overviews of the Ford Tourneo Custom and a used Honda Civic Tourer.
Looking for more technical touring advice? That's covered, too. With step-by-step guides to readying your caravan for winter, fitting a back-up for your Alde control panel and making an awning peg-puller.
Steering clear of brand new vans? We've got some suggestions, such as the Bailey Pegasus GT65 from 2013, and two fixed-bed tourers for first-timers go head-to-head in our Secondhand Shootout.
With so much packed into our festive issue, what's stopping you from picking up your copy today? Or, you can get yourself an early Christmas present and subscribe to get our great magazine every month!
