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.

Andrew is expected to take about 2 weeks to complete his journey with Dougal but as with the idea of the Vlow it is about going with the, well... flow. So Mr Ditton is free to decide when, where and how long to stay. If he finds a place interesting or exciting he can stay longer.

You can go with the Vlow and follow highlights through carado UK's Facebook

Also through Andrew's own Facebook

Remember #gowiththevlow

The big question on everyone's mind is does Dougal speak German - the answer of course.

We've not seen or tested the new Vlow but the whole office was blown away with the carado Perfect 10 coachbuilt in 2017 so we are keen to see if they have taken this across to the new van conversion model.

Andrew's first look at the Vlow in this handy youtube video is below and he thinks so!

In case you have never heard of Carado they are a Hymer Group Company and by Hymer standards the Carado is affordable. Any Carado is well worth a look as these can be some hidden gems of motorhomes.

Our review of the perfect 10 carado is opposite.
