It's finally time for the big reveal of our annual Motorhome of the Year Awards 2020! The November issue is now on sale, and inside you can find details of the winners and 'highly commended' motorhomes in each of our 10 categories, plus our overall winner.
The issue also has everything you need to get ready for a visit to the NEC Motorhome and Caravan Show. Our NEC Show Preview covers what you should look out for from all of the major manufacturers in the UK and Europe, and what stands you should head to. The Show is a great opportunity for anyone thinking of upgrading their 'van to see what's out there, but it's so big that some pre-planning might be necessary, which is where our 17-page guide comes in handy.
The magazine also has the usual travel inspiration, 'van reviews and buying and technical advice, too - it really is a bumper issue.
Editor Sarah Wakely takes to France's Atlantic Coast in our luxury long-term Carthago Liner-for-Two I53 to visit areas that were once at the heart of the action during World War II, including the rebuilt town of Royan and Omaha Beach.
We've also got a tour of Derbyshire from Kay and Nigel Hutson, who discovered hidden gems of the north-east of the county, and a scarecrow-themed tour in deepest Dorset from Lee Davey and his son.
Plus, we've rounded up everything you need to know for a great tour in Winchester, including where to eat, what to see, and more. There's also a handy cut-out-and-keep guide to the M4 East, a vital link to many great touring destinations.
Elsewhere, we've an exclusive first look at the revamped Bailey Autograph line-up, plus a live-in test of the Autograph 69-2 from this range. Other 'van reviews include the Swift Kon-tiki Sport 560, the Auto-Sleeper Fairford Plus and the Hymer B-Class MC T 600.
There's plenty of technical advice, too, with the second part in Gentleman Jack's Maxus makeover, Sam Coles' guide to making a basic awning, and advice on storing your crockery from Tony Brown.
In the pre-owned section, we take a look at pre-owned motorhomes for under £15,000, as well as the 2000 - 2006 McLouis low-profiles - what to look out for and key features that you'll love.
