It’s the last episode of the series, but we’re playing it cool. Find out why and check out a super-chic ’van on Sky 212, Freesat 161 and online – tune in!

We’ve come to the last show of the series, but we’re going out with style, as we kick-start this week’s episode with a chic motorhome from Italian manufacturer Mobilvetta.

Inside and out, the Mobilvetta K-Yacht Tekno Line 85 really is a great-looking ’van. This four-berth A-class just oozes sophistication. There’s even underfloor heating.

In terms of accommodation, it has two fixed single beds at the rear, both over 6ft long – or you can convert the area into a massive double! Plus there’s a drop-down double.

Prepare to be wowed in this week’s TV show.

When and how to watch

You’ve got five opportunities to tune in, as follows:

And stay tuned, as up next we’ve got more expert technical insight from our very own Diamond Dave. This week’s topic is bringing your ’van out of hibernation.

So, how should you prepare your motorhome for a new season of touring? Find out with Dave as he runs through some essential checks.

Pitch perfect?

When you come back after the break, we’re off to Yorkshire to check out Jasmine Park campsite, which is a finalist in our Top 100 Sites Guide 2017.

It is a peaceful and friendly site that makes a perfect base from which to explore the North York Moors, with 64 touring pitches, all of which are hardstanding and fully serviced.

Kids will love the play area and football pitch, while other facilities on site include a washblock with underfloor heating, washing machines and tumble dryers, a dishwashing area and a shop.

See it for yourself – and find out what great local attractions are close by – this week, only on Practical Motorhome TV.

Playing it cool

Finally, we finish this series with something rather special. So far in this episode we’ve taken inspiration from Italy and Yorkshire, but now we’re going extreme. We recently joined Bailey on its ambitious Arctic Adventure – tune in to find out more!

Despite temperatures well below freezing, the Bailey Autograph 75-2 kept its occupants toasty warm throughout this snowy trip into the Arctic Circle and beyond.

So for more on this epic trip of a lifetime, don’t miss this week’s episode of Practical Motorhome TV! Tune in on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or live online.

We hope you enjoy it and thanks for watching this series – we’ll be back soon with more.
