    Going tomorrow. Disappointed that the garage Bailey model has not been released yet.

    ☺ thanks for that. Is it better than the old 750 Approach?

    Very impressed by the Baileys at the show especially the twin singles model but wow, are they wide! I can see a lot of people buying them because they offer acres of space but then being intimidated by their sheer bulk on the road (especially driving round Cornwall and Devon!).

    Very impressed by the Bavarias on show as well as the Fleurettes. Hated some other models though, to the extent that I couldn't for the life of me understand who they were aimed at? (Wingamms, for example although there were others).

    I can second that. Everything else feels a bit cramped now.

    But the new ones are even wider still! I got used to my 2 Baileys but still managed to scratch the windows fairly regularly on overhanging branches. The ones I looked at today were something like 2.48m wide without including the mirrors.

    not looking for a new van as ours is only 8 months old but thought id have a nosy at the Bailey. Although they look very nice I'd personally think they would be no use to the majority of us reason being the single beds are only 5.10 and the double 6ft.
    So if your 6 ft or just under you wont fit in the beds bit strange that.
