What’s in store?

Let’s kick off episode one of our new series with a review of a brand-new-for-2018 motorhome – and it’s the Swift Select 122.

Alastair Clements is on hand to review this Iron Grey, Fiat Ducato-based ’van that’s fab for sociable couples as it has a generously proportioned end lounge.

The washroom might be more of a wetroom, but there’s everything you need, and the side kitchen you’ll find opposite has been upgraded since last season.

Next, Practical Motorhome’s technical guru Diamond Dave is back for another series, with more top motorcaravanning tips.

This week, Dave’s talking tyres. Always make sure yours are in good condition, at the correct pressure, with plenty of tread and not too old – Dave shows you what to look for.

Check out this island-bed Elddis

Be sure to come back after the break, as we’ve another new motorhome review for you.

Niall Hampton braves the elements to cast his expert eye over the 2018-season Elddis Encore 254.

Champagne-hued sidewalls make the new-season ’van stand out from the crowd, while inside, there’s a parallel front lounge and a rear island bed.

Step inside in this week’s Practical Motorhome TV show.

Let’s hit the road!

Finally, we’re off to Wiltshire to see what Stonehenge Touring Park has to offer motorcaravanners.

This small site is a place to go if you like back-to-basics touring in beautiful surroundings – and it’s not hard to see why it has appeared regularly in our Top 100 Sites Guide.

You’ll be pleased to learn there’s a drive-over waste disposal point for motorhomes, clean toilet blocks and a well-stocked on-site shop.

Take a look around this site, only this week on Practical Motorhome TV. Don’t forget to watch on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or live online – and enjoy the show!
