You may be aware that a few lucky members of the CaravanTimes team have been traveling in two Bailey Pursuits and an Autograph motorhome to the Arctic Circle with Bailey of Bristol and the Caravan and Motorhome Club on an Arctic Adventure.

Our team our back and very thankful to Bailey, the Caravan and Motorhome Club and everyone else involved for a fantastic trip.

Unsurprisingly, the caravans and motorhomes have held up impeccably to everything thrown at them, including what sounds like some pretty hefty driving errors.

So, after over 5000 miles the team are back in the UK and it is time for us to start creating a documentary about the trip.

But like all good movies - there's an even better trailer and here it is for you to have a little sneak preview of what's coming.
