This weekend however, we decided to test out how sporty the Auto-Trail V-Line Sport 635 really is.
In this week's blog we look at how the Tribute performs for a family that is considering entering the motorhome market. We took the "Diaz" family, Mum Reina, Dad Tomas, Son Leo (11) and Daughter Sol (8) to Camp Bestival in Dorset for 4 days of family festival fun.

While in Romania I was totally surprised about how good the road conditions were until I ventured off the beaten track into farmland. On top of that we took a tour of Castle Bran AKA Castle Dracula.
Castle Dracula welcome the Bristanbul tour
The Bristanbul tour had some fantastic new additions this week in the form of ex Eastender Ryan Philpott and Dean Howard, who's new cookbook will released later this year. Neither of them had towed before let alone on the other side of the road. We also had 2 of our camera crew dip their toe into the world or towing.
Today was a very interesting, and that's putting it very mildly. There has been some issues at the non EU borders but the Turkish/Bulgaria had to be the most problematic of them all. Every cloud does have a silver lining as I got to spend a good amount of time with the guys from Bailey Australia.
So as you may be aware there was a little bit of a hold up at the Turkish border for the #Bristanbul tour last night. We had planned to arrive at our destination in Bulgaria for around 8pm local time and have a nice dinner on site. Well that plan did not quote come to fruition.
Touring holidays do not stop once you're parked and pitched. As I am sure many of you will agree the touring on foot is just as important as the vehicle side of your trip. After the slight hell that was towing through Istanbul it was decided that a trip into the city, on foot, was well deserved.
As we made our 184 mile journey to Istanbul from Gallipoli I saw some sights, weird policing, questionable motorway maneuvers and traffic like I have never seen before in my entire life.
That's right! touring season is well underway with manufacturers, bloggers and publications showcasing how you can go further afield with your caravan or motorhome. Our good friend, airstream owner, biker and caravan and motorhome expert Andrew ditton is part way through taking the new Carado Vlow from Germany to Croatia.
Best-selling caravan manufacturer with a group incorporating Sprite and Sterling brands
One of the best known names in the industry, Bailey of Bristol is the oldest caravan manufacturer in the UK.
Over the last fifty years Elddis has built up a reputation for building great value tourers and motorhomes.
In Week 3 of our long term test, we look at what it is like to drive the Auto-Trail Tribute 670. In this review, I will look at different common driving questions followed by a brief summary for anyone who is a novice and also a summary for the more experienced.
In the second blog of our long term test of the Auto-Trail Tribute 670, we look at how the Tribute performs for the short getaway, that weekend reprieve or the impromptu break.
Here, at CaravanTimes we have reviewed literally thousands of caravans and motorhomes over the years. We have been involved in challenges, events and press junkets and now is the time to take it to the next level with long term reviews.
Regardless of your chosen caravan manufacturer, construction methods have changed unrecognisably over the last decade. Early adopters, Bailey of Bristol, were the first to change their construction with the introduction of Alu-Tech, but each of the manufacturers have done things in there own way. Below we have provided you with a quick synopsis of how all the main manufacturers make their caravans.
