2012 is already here… sort of. The Practical Motorhome team has been zooming all around the UK and mainland Europe to bring you first news of all the brand new motorhomes that will be vying for your attention next season.

 

And this year, fans of the very latest news in cutting-edge motorhome design, innovation and manufacturing don’t have to wait those extra few weeks for our reports to appear in the magazine as in previous years: now we’re uploading them here online first, along with exclusive individual model reviews that will only appear on this website.

 

For those who’d like a printed copy of this information too, we’ll publish our usual range overviews, along with more analysis and full UK prices in our November issue, on sale from September 28. This will also preview the Motorhome and Caravan Show at Birmingham’s NEC, from October 11-16, when many of the new models will take their public bow in the UK.

 

Until then, click on the brand names, below, to find out the very latest in new motorhome news. We’ll add each new brand as we return from the press launches.
