Check out the winners of our Motorhome of the Year Awards and dive straight into our NEC show preview – our packed November magazine is on sale now!

We’re often asked which are the best motorhomes and in this month’s magazine we’re giving you the knowledge as we reveal the winners of our Motorhome of the Year Awards 2016. Three ’vans were shortlisted across 10 categories, from best rising-roof camper and best high-top panel van to best family motorhome, best luxury motorhome and many more. From these, our expert reviewers have selected the winners, the best of the best, so whatever your touring needs, you know which ’vans are the ones to look out for. This is the year’s must-read issue for anyone considering a new motorhome.

But that’s not all! The November 2016 edition of Practical Motorhome is also one you can’t afford to miss if you’re heading to the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2016 that runs between 11 and 16 October at the NEC Birmingham. We bring you a whopping 24-page NEC show preview – it is your essential guide. This show is the best place to see all the brand-new, 2017-season motorhomes from your favourite brands, both big and small, including this month’s cover star, the all-new Bailey Autograph. If you’re currently browsing the motorhomes for sale pages, this show is a special chance to compare and contrast different layouts, trims and spec levels to help you find the best ’van for you – and don’t forget to look out for exclusive, show-only deals! Read our preview to help you get the most from your visit to Birmingham – get started from page 75. And to whet your appetite, there’s our report from this year’s Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf to get stuck into, too.

Also in our latest issue, we recommend 10 great sites across the UK where you can enjoy picturesque autumn views, to help you make the most of this season. Maureen Johnstone packs her Auto-Sleeper Kemerton and tours to Henley-on-Thames and on to ancient Winchester, while Caroline Mills visits Eskdale in the North York Moors National Park in her compact Romahome Duo Hylo. And we don’t stop there, as you can also read of Donna and Phil Garner’s adventures in Normandy as they visit France for a 16-day tour full of history and beauty.

As always, in the November 2016 issue of Practical Motorhome you can expect the usual expert used motorhome insight you enjoy every month, as well as updates on our long-term fleet and technical advice on key motorcaravanning matters.
