Tune in as we review two new-for-2017 models, the Auto-Trail Imala 734 and Bailey Autograph 79-4, only in this week’s episode of Practical Motorhome TV

Step aboard the Bailey Autograph 79-4 this week on Practical Motorhome TV, as our Editor Niall Hampton reviews this new-for-2017 four-berth. And it has a new layout.

Check out that fabulous longitudinal island bed! It’s easy to extend, and flanked by wardrobes and with picture windows on either side, it’s a pleasant and practical space, too.

Powered by Peugeot’s Euro 6-compliant, 160PS 2.-0-litre engine and with a handy storage space beneath that island bed, there’s lots to see in this new ’van. Tune in to find out more about this new-season motorhome as Niall delivers his verdict.

So don’t miss this week’s Practical Motorhome TV show. You can find our channel on Showcase TV – look on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or Freeview 254 (you will need a smart TV for the latter). Alternatively, watch our live stream.

Once you’ve found us, here’s when to watch:

  • Monday 31 October 2016 at 8.30pm
  • Wednesday 2 November at 6.30pm
  • Friday 4 November at 4.30pm
  • Saturday 5 November at 8.30pm
  • Sunday 6 November at 6.30pm

Then we’re off to see another of the finalists from our Top 100 Sites Guide 2016. Ludlow Touring Park has 135 pitches set over 20 acres, fantastic facilities and is open all year. There’s a playground for the kids, but also a quiet, adults-only section, too. It’s a great place from which to explore the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as the surrounding towns.

When we return for part two, we’ve another British ’van for you. Watch our 2017 Auto-Trail Imala 734 review with our Editor Niall on Freeview 254, Freesat 161 or Sky 212, or via our live stream

This model brings a new layout to the Imala range, with fixed twin single beds. But it’s flexible, so you can convert it into a transverse double, if you fancy. Storage is good, too.

Up front, this Auto-Trail Imala 734 has a bright parallel lounge with plenty of headroom, which converts into a second double bed. There is also a spacious and well-equipped galley kitchen with three 230V sockets, as well as a good-sized washroom, while this motorhome rides on a Fiat Ducato chassis.

Finally on Practical Motorhome TV, our technical guru Diamond Dave is here with more expert advice. And this time he’s talking inverters. He explains what the different types of inverters are and asks you to consider if you really need one in your ’van. Get the knowledge in this week’s episode.

So remember to tune in at the times listed above, on Sky 212, Freeview 254 or Freesat 161, or using our live stream – we hope you enjoy the show.
