There are spec bumps across the Dethleffs range for 2018 and some clever new accessories, while over at Frankia, UK-friendly end-lounge ’vans take centre stage at its new-season launch event.

Read how Pilote’s Foxy Van range stole the show at its 2018 launch from page 96 of our latest issue.

And there is more from the French brands as Rapido reveals some exciting new models, as well as updates to and new offerings from its subsidiary brands Itineo and Dreamer, too.

There is big news from Sunlight as it stands on its own two feet – find out more from page 101 – and Sun Living is also making a splash in 2018.

And last, but by no means least in our alphabetical run through 2018’s new motorhomes, catch up with all the news from Westfalia, including a tempting new model – turn to page 107.

A new take on the VW camper van

Of course, we’ve also got some 2017-season motorhome reviews for you in our September magazine.

First, from page 66, we give this month’s cover star, the T6-based Auto Campers MRV, the full live-in test treatment. Priced from £53,836 OTR, can this stylish VW camper van sparkle in this crowded market sector?

And then we turn our attentions to the Chausson Flash 530. Take a look at what this sub-6m, four-berth coachbuilt has to offer.

If a used motorhome is more what you are in the market for, we get expert advice on buying an Autohomes Bambi or Elddis Nipper, while in our Used ’Van Challenge, three overcabs fall under our spotlight.

Or if you’re looking at motorhome awnings, read our review of Sunncamp’s Silhouette Motor Air 250 Grande inflatable driveaway awning on page 83.

With another tour to some of the UK’s best beach cafés plus advice on where to pitch in Cheshire, as well as a host of expert technical advice, there is lots to get stuck into in the September 2017 edition of Practical Motorhomeon sale now!
