Welcome to the 2018 season! Yes, really.

We may be in the middle of 2017 and looking ahead to a summer of touring, but the caravan industry is gearing up to launch its 2018-season portfolios.

In the coming weeks and months, the Practical Caravan team will be travelling across the UK and Europe, attending the caravan manufacturers’ new-season launches and delivering news of the latest new models to you first.

So this is the place to be. As new stories are published, we’ll update this page with links to our experts’ launch reports, so you’re up to date with all the news of the newest caravans for sale.
