The world may be adjusting to a new normal, but things are better and brighter than ever for the caravanning industry – we’re taking to the road in our thousands, keen to experience the freedom that we’ve all missed over the past 18 months.

And it’s our brilliant pastime that we’re celebrating at the Van Live! Practical Caravan & Motorhome Virtual Show Autumn 2021, right here on our website from 18th to 25th October.

You’ll find all of the latest news from manufacturers, dealers and campsites, not to mention our expert tips and advice, fantastic celebrity interviews, the lowdown on the very latest accessories that you will love… the list goes on. And, don’t miss our themed days in our Advice Lounge & Event Theatre: Winter Wednesday, when we’ll be providing lots of advice and ideas to keep touring throughout the autumn and winter; Foodie Friday, with recipes, fabulous sites and more; Super Cycling Sunday, showcasing the brilliant combination of caravanning and cycling, whether that’s a gruelling adventure challenge or a quick pop-to-the-shops for a pint of milk and the paper.

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