WE REVIEW NEW caravans, tour the Yorkshire Dales and offer plenty of Practical Caravan-style advice and help in Episode 6 of The Caravan Channel.


Episode 6 begins on 25 November, 2013 and will be repeated at the times given below for a fortnight. 




Rob Ganley reviews a Swift Challenger SE 580, and also a Dethleffs Tourist caravan with a pop-top roof.


John Wickersham takes a look at torque wrenches and locking wheel nuts that could prevent a wheel detachment.


Clare Kelly heads to the Yorkshire Dales in a Ssangyong Turismo, staying at the Old Station Caravan Park in Measham in her Adria Sportline, where she tries her hand at a spot of mountain biking.


David Motton hitches up the Volkswagen Golf and puts it through its paces in our rigorous tow car test.


Also, in the new Caravan Classroom, John Wickersham looks at caravan terminology basics, such as MTPLM, MiRO, payload and more.



Current episodes of The Caravan Channel give you a chance to see the Practical Caravan editorial team in action. We're busy filming some of the caravans we review for the magazine – and a few of the locations we visit in the magazine – for a series of 10 episodes of the Caravan Channel, co-produced with Information TV.


The Caravan Channel is broadcast on Sky 212, Freesat 401 and online.


If you have no Sky or Freesat dish, don't worry, you can watch The Caravan Channel online via livestream here.
