    Bought ours in Dec 11, but had it registered 1/12. So far no probs to speak of, except we had the sliding bar which slides across the top of the habiatation door,removed. Then had a little clip to retain the door open,fitted. This is our fourth m/hme, and without doubt the warmest. Our son was also impressed with the build quality of the Bailey m/hme, and he swapped his Swift for a Bailey 625. You will luv it. Best wishes Eddie.

    Welcome to Webbies. :Doh: :thumb:

    I was about to ask the same question after being impressed with it at Peterborough yesterday but thought I'd search the forum first. Much as we like our Starspirit the Bailey gives us nearly all the things we'd want on the next motorhome, fixed bed, good kitchen storage, large fridge, sofas to lounge on, cab forming part of the lounge, cab aircon and generally more space all round. Thought it could have better/bigger access to storage areas for chairs/loungers, BBQ etc. and doubt if I'd get my feet in that tiny butler washbasin. :Rofl1:

    Got a reasonable part-ex price from Becks too so ..... thinking about it. :RollEyes: Forgot to mention too that we were definitely going to buy German next time but we'll see.

    On a general note, other funsters might tell me, given it's on an Al-Ko chassis does this really give that much of a better ride and handling and do away with the need for air suspension which I, and many others have on our vans?

    Best I looked at

    Had a look round the motor homes at Spinney at Knutsford I thought the Approach seemed the best nice with lots of space and cheaper than most.

    We've owned ours for a year now, have done almost 7,000 miles with not a problem. (Touching wood!!) Drives well, good mpg (34 mpg driving up from England last week), comfortable bed, roomy, pleased with our choice.
