Summer is here! And we’ve got a brand-new magazine for you, stuffed full of reviews, holiday ideas and more, to help you make the most of the year’s busiest touring season.

As you can see from our Summer Special issue cover, we’re off to the lakes – Bala Lake.

Join our Editor Niall Hampton in Wales and drink in the stunning views, the local culture, the exquisite Rug Chapel at Corwen and much more.

And after a trip to the Welsh Lake District, we’re off to its namesake with keen walker George Stopps and his wife.

Climbing Catbells to enjoy the views across Derwentwater before relaxing back at their Auto-Sleeper Gatcombe, followed by further trips to Bowness, Windermere and more, this two-week tour is full of ideas to make your next holiday in the Lake District a memorable one.

Motorhomes of all shapes and sizes

We have a trio of motorhome reviews for you this month. And we start with the Mobilvetta K-Yacht Tekno Line MH—‹-85, on page 70.

This four-berth A-class costs from £67,995 OTR – £69,745 as tested – and with an MTPLM of 3500kg, anyone can drive it.

It is great to see a UK-friendly spec, while the rear fixed single beds are a generous 6ft 8in long – even the drop-down double bed at the front is 6ft 2in long!

Next, we review the Adria Coral 690 SC Platinum – turn to page 78.

This three-berth low-profile has a rear island double bed, flanked with wardrobes, and a make-up single in the lounge – however, the latter is only really big enough for children.

Our third motorhome review is something rather more compact – step forward the SsangYong Turismo Tourist.

The product of a collaboration between the Korean car firm and well-known British converter Wellhouse Leisure, this gives you the comfort and convenience of a camper van, on the footprint of an SUV!

And there’s more…

Also in the Summer Special issue of Practical Motorhome, you can win a Raleigh folding electric bike worth £1100 and a copy of Cool Caravanning, a guide to some of England’s best campsites – all of which are motorhome-friendly.

We’re also reviewing an Olpro motorhome awning, sharing our top tips for holidays in Cornwall, throw the spotlight on damp rectification work, celebrate Hymer’s 60th birthday and much more.
