A brilliant Bessacarr

First in this week’s show, Niall Hampton checks out the new-for-2018 Swift Bessacarr 599 – and it’s part of a 10-strong range that is more upmarket than ever before.

The 599 is an island-bed four-berth with an L-shaped, split-level dinette up front, featuring new-season ambient lighting above and underneath the overhead lockers.

The kitchen is on the small side, but it’s not lacking in style. Tune in to Practical Motorhome TV to see this, the central washroom and that in-line island bed.

Then we’ve more wisdom from our resident expert Diamond Dave!

In this week’s show he’s talking towing – what can you pull behind your motorhome and how? Dave’s got all you need to know.

Fancy a French bed?

Be sure to come back after the break as we review another new-season ’van – it’s the Elddis Autoquest 155.

It’s a French-bed, parallel-lounge four-berth, with a central kitchen, and that fixed bed is a whopping 6’4” long.

But is the corner washroom a compromise too far? Take a look in this week’s episode and make your own mind up.

We’re off to Somerset!

Finally, do you like the idea of pitching a minute from the beach? Then check out Warren Farm Holiday Centre, which features in our Top 100 Sites Guide 2017.

If you’re going to visit Somerset, this fully equipped site has everything you need and a massive 600 touring pitches!

It has quiet and more upbeat areas, dog-free and dog-friendly sections, plus attractions including a bowling alley, pets corner, a fish and chip shop, a Chinese takeaway, an arcade, basketball and much more – or you could just escape to the beach!

See it for yourself in this week’s episode of Practical Motorhome TV!
