It has a generous front parallel lounge and a full-width end-washroom, and between lies a well-specced and well-thought-out offside kitchen.
And with an MTPLM of 1265kg and a £17,849 price tag, watch this week’s Practical Caravan TV show to see why Alastair Clements thinks the Genoa makes a compelling case for itself.
When and where to watch
As ever, we are giving you plenty of opportunities to see Practical Caravan TV and offering you a variety of ways to watch. Here’s when you can catch this week’s show:
- Monday 27 February at 8pm;
- Wednesday 1 March at 6pm;
- Friday 3 March at 4pm;
- Saturday 4 March at 6pm;
- Sunday 5 March at 6pm.
You can watch on Showcase TV which is on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or live online – a single, one-off charge of £2.99 applies for the latter.
We’re testing the 3.0-litre diesel S model and on paper alone it’s clear what tow car potential it has – lots! Its 296bhp and 516lb ft torque means it isn’t short on power; and it’s heavy, too.
As well as being effortlessly powerful, the F-Pace is supremely stable. In addition, the five-seat cabin is spacious and there’s little to grumble about in terms of boot capacity. Catch this week’s Practical Caravan TV show and see it for yourself.
Then, after the break, we visit Dorset to take a look round Wareham Forest Tourist Park. It’s a quiet, family site with no bar or restaurant, so you can really get away from it all.
What this site does provide is a well-stocked shop, toilet and shower blocks with underfloor heating, a heated outdoor swimming pool, table-tennis – and even a place to wash your dog! Plus it is open all year and access is easy, no matter how large your outfit. Check it out in this week’s TV show.
Then, join Practical Caravan’s Group Editor Alastair in America for the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association show in Louisville, Kentucky.
But if you think it’s all super-sized mega-caravans and garish upholstery, think again. Alright, it’s quite different from what you’d see at a British show, but don’t miss his whistle-stop tour of this show, packed with a host of interesting models.
And that’s it for this week on Practical Caravan TV. We hope you enjoy watching and we’ll see you next week for more!
Tune in to see an eagerly awaited tow car test!
