The latest issue of Practical Motorhome hits shelves today, and if you’re a subscriber you’ll already have received your special copy, with a stunning cover shot from our latest trip.  Here’s what you can expect to find inside it.

Our latest wanderings took us down to Kent to find off-the-beaten-track destinations and beautiful scenery.

We’ve also got a piece from Caroline Mills and family, who took Switzerland’s Grand Tour route to discover beautiful lakes, mountains and meadows.

Plus an in-depth guide to touring in Cumbria; where to stay, what to do, and a selection of events that you don’t want to miss out on! And, if you’ve still not decided on a festival to go to this summer, check out our guide to some of the best.

This issue is packed with ideas for anyone shopping around for a new ‘van, too. We’ve got full reviews of the upmarket Auto-Trail Apache 700 and the Wellhouse Leisure Trento, a high-class four-berth camper. 

Most exciting of all, though, is that you can have your first glimpse of what’s in store for 2020, with part 1 of our season preview. This covers new developments from Bürstner, Carthago, Dethleffs, Sunlight, Frankia, and Westfalia. 

Looking for practical advice? Look no further; our technical section is bursting with it! 

Sammy Faircloth takes a look at those all-important pre-departure checks that can make or break a tour in your ‘van. (No one wants to forget the grip mats and find themselves stuck on a soggy site!)

We’ve also shined the spotlight on lithium batteries, with a complete guide to what to look for if you’re thinking of replacing your leisure battery. 

And finally, Gentleman Jack gives his final thoughts on life in his Bailey Advance 66-2 and the technical solutions he’s come up with during his ownership of the ‘van. 

Those looking for a pre-loved ‘van will find the pre-owned section valuable, which includes a guide to buying Auto-Sleeper Nuevo going as far back as 2015 models.

But, if it’s a new ‘van that you’ve set your sights on, use our ultimate motorhome buyers guide – it lists every 2019 model, with lots of useful information to help you find the motorhome that’s right for you.
