Caravan holidays in Ireland, two Bailey caravans reviewed plus you could win in our brand new competition, only on The Caravan Channel!

You don't want to miss our latest TV show, packed with touring inspiration, new caravan reviews and, for the first time, a chance for you to win.

You can now catch our TV programmes on The Caravan Channel on Sky 192 and Freesat 402. And if you've not got access to these channels, don't fear, you can also watch the show live online – and much of the content from previous shows is also available 24/7 on our YouTube channel! So, what can you expect from our newest show?

First, let's go touring! How about a caravan holiday in Ireland? Practical Caravan's very own Claudia Dowell makes her TV debut, as she heads to the Emerald Isle, touring the borders of Ireland and Northern Ireland, towing a Sterling Eccles Sport. She explores the wild Atlantic coastline, staying at Rushin House Caravan Park, in County Fermanagh, and Greenlands Caravan and Camping Park in County Sligo.

Also new in our latest TV show is our competition spot, brought to you by Practical Caravan's Stacie Pardoe. She reviews a Westfalia BC 60 cycle carrier and storage box. Best of all, we have one system – worth £577 – to give away to one lucky viewer! So make sure you tune in – and good luck!

So, what else can you expect when you tune in? Well, did you come to the Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome Reader Rally over the first May bank holiday weekend at Stowford Farm Meadows in delightful Devon? If so, you might have seen our caravan expert John Wickersham taking caravanners' technical questions in our marquee in front of a live audience. And if you weren't there, you're in luck, as you can benefit from John's expert knowledge in our latest TV show, as we broadcast that live Q&A.

We've also got two caravan reviews for you. First, Practical Caravan's Group Editor Rob Ganley reviews the Bailey Pursuit 550-4, an entry-level tourer on a single-axle chassis with a hugely popular floorplan. He finds the fixed single beds and end washroom layout to be perfect for couples on tour, as well as being flexible enough to use as a caravan for a family of four.

But that's not all. Andy Jenkinson also reviews a Bailey Pegasus GT65 Ancona. Tune in to our TV show on The Caravan Channel to find out how he rates this six-berth tourer with fixed bunk beds, that’s perfect for four and also workable for a touring party of six.

Finally, we've got yet more top caravan advice for you. In this episode of our TV show, John Wickersham investigates caravan water filters, also looking at diaphragm pumps, water purifiers, submersible and in-line filters, and more. Invaluable top tips to help make your caravan holidays easier and even more pleasurable.

The Practical Caravan magazine team works with Information TV to co-produce shows on The Caravan Channel. All of our programmes are broadcast regularly across a fortnightly period (please see the times below) on Sky 192 and Freesat 402. Alternatively, you can watch our shows live online on The Caravan Channel website.
