The past year really has been extraordinarily eventful for the motorhome industry: dealerships and campsites have been forced to temporarily close their doors, and we’ve all had to stay at home during the various lockdowns.

It was with this in mind that we launched our first Van Live! Practical Caravan & Motorhome Virtual Show, back in October – our online event brought you all of the latest news and round-ups from across the motorhome world, to keep you up to date with everything that was going on, after other physical shows had been cancelled.

Such was the huge success of that event, we decided to do it again – the Van Live! Practical Caravan & Motorhome Virtual Spring Show 2021 runs right here, on the Practical Motorhome website, from 22-28 February.

You’ll find all of the latest news from manufacturers, dealerships and campsites; expert technical tips and advice, competitions, fantastic celebrity interviews, the lowdown on the very latest accessories that you will love… the list goes on.

What’s more, it’s completely free to visit – and you can even download a free digital goodie bag!

What will you discover?

Hall 1 British-made ‘vans: UK brands have launched great new models for 2021 to suit all motorcaravanners.

Hall 2 Continental Manufacturers: elegance combines with innovation from the major Continental manufacturers

Hall 3 Motorhome Dealerships: find out how some top dealerships are faring as business booms

Hall 4 Awnings & Accessories: the lowdown on the latest arrivals in motorhome awnings, and essential touring kit. Visit our shopping village to buy your gear
