The past year really has been extraordinarily eventful for the leisure vehicle industry: dealerships and campsites have been forced to temporarily close their doors, and we’ve all had to stay at home during the various lockdowns.

It was with this situation in mind that we launched our first Van Live! Practical Caravan & Motorhome Virtual Show, back in October 2020 – our online event brought you all of the latest news and round-ups from across the motorhome world, to keep you right up to date with everything that was going on, after other physical shows had been cancelled.

Such was the huge success of that event, we decided to do it again – the Van Live! Practical Caravan & Motorhome Virtual Spring Show 2021 runs right here, on the Practical Caravan website, from 22-28 February.

You’ll find all of the latest news from manufacturers, dealerships and campsites; expert technical tips and advice, competitions, fantastic celebrity interviews, the lowdown on the very latest accessories that you will love… the list goes on.

What’s more, it’s completely free to visit – and you can even download a free digital goodie bag!

Time to explore – what will you uncover?

Hall 1 British-made Caravans: UK brands are launching great new models – everything from family vans to micro-tourers

Hall 2 Continental Manufacturers: there are some chic new ranges on the market

Hall 3 Caravan Dealerships: find out how some top dealerships are faring as business booms

Hall 4 Awnings & Accessories: get the lowdown on the latest awnings, great gadgets and essential touring kit. Visit our shopping village to buy your gear

Hall 5 Campsites: touring parks and campsites have worked hard in the lockdown to prepare to welcome guests again
