Our next issue is on sale now, and it's a sunny special with plenty of suggestions and tips for making the most of your summer holidays.
Our eye-catching cover shot comes from Claudia's recent trip to Kent, complete with oast houses in the gorgeous Garden of England. Find out what she discovered when she took our long-term Adria Altea 472 DS for a tour. She also takes a closer look at Margate; it's a real hotspot for art, culture and, of course, beaches.
We've also started a series following the Binedell family as they spend a year touring Europe in a rather unusual way - trading voluntary work for food and a pitch for the night! We join them in Portugal where they are currently enjoying sun and surf.
We also join Lee Davey and son Charlie as they travel to Wales to try their throwing arm at the sport of stone skimming. Meanwhile Anna Lyon and family enjoy the great outdoors in Slovenia, and the Ormerods head to Southport and Liverpool.
We've also got a guide to the most dog-friendly campsites in the UK, plus, the first of our new series looking at driving routes and their service stations focuses on the M25. We've also found six great free apps that will make sunny days even more enjoyable.
In terms of caravan reviews, we've put the Bailey Phoenix 440 to the test, and take a look at the Lunar Ariva and the Knaus Sport Silver 400 LK.
Those that are dreading the task of awning shopping might find our expert advice on how to choose your awning useful.
In the tow car section, we review the Volkswagen Arteon, the car that took top gong in this year's Tow Car Awards, so you can find out exactly what makes this an outstanding tug.
We've also got a quick test of the Citroën C5 Aircross and a guide to buying a used Jaguar XF.
If you're looking on brushing up your caravanning know-how, our Skills School is open! We take a look at essential pre-departure checks, fitting a fridge fan, DAB/FM antennas, security tips, wheel lock techniques and more.
With all of this to look forward to, head to the shops now to pick up your copy! Or subscribe now to take advantage of our 5 issues for £5 summer sale and you could have the next issue delivered straight to your door.
