The latest issue of Practical Caravan hits shops today, so here’s a round-up of what you can expect when you pick up your copy!
Issue 419, our November issue, is a pretty special one, as we reveal the results of our Tourer of the Year Awards. With in-depth copy about each of the category winners, find out which caravans, awnings and accessories came out on top in this awards special.
That’s not all, though, as we’ve also got your regular dose of travel inspiration, starting with an off-season tour of the Cotswolds. Meanwhile, Joe and Elaine Ormerod head to Anglesey and Holy Island, and Kay and Nigel Hutson discover the surprisingly scenic region just south of the capital.
If you’re looking for a touring site from which you can enjoy spectacular views, look no further; we’ve rounded up 10 top sites for stunning views. Of course, there are dozens to choose from, but we’ve selected 10 of the best that you might not have heard of.
We’ve also got inside information about historic Winchester – a great small city visit on your travels, and round up everything you need to know about the M74, handy for those travelling between England and central and western Scotland.
As well as the in-depth coverage of our annual Awards, we’ve still got plenty of caravan reviews to introduce you to more of next season’s vans. We’ve got initial reviews of the Swift Challenger X880 and the Coachman Acadia 470, and an update on our long-term-loan Bailey Phoenix 440.
Those in the market for a new awning might want to check out our review of the Isabella Air Cirrus North 400.
In the tow car section, you can find tests of the Mercedes-Benz G 350 d and the Škoda Scala SE, a more affordable tug. Plus, those looking into used tow cars that won’t need to tow a heavyweight van will be interested in our take on the Volkswagen Golf Mk6.
We’ve still got plenty of advice in our ‘Skills school’ section, too, starting with a guide to carrying on caravanning, even as winter sets in. There’s no need to let something as trivial as the weather deter you! However, if you do prefer to hibernate during the colder months, we’ve also got a guide to preparing your van for winter storage.
Other handy advice pieces include how to fit grab handles to make it easier to get in and out of your van, everything you need to know about installing Truma iNet and LevelControl, and more.
With all of that to look forward to, what’s stopping you heading out to pick up your copy today?
