    Hi all,

    We're still looking for our first motorhome and are soooo tempted by the above. I know a few of you have them. Are they still living up to your expectations?

    The only thing holding us back is the lack of a garage. The storage under the bed seems quite small for us. We have been hiring a m/h with a garage, and I think it has spoiled us!

    Anyway, would appreciate your feedback, thanks. :Smile:

    We've had a 745 for about 6 weeks and love it . We've never had a garage so the lack of one didn't bother us and as there's only 2 of us, storage isn't an issue - we do travel light though! As for general storage, there's plenty of it - we've still got empty cupboards.

    The bed is extremely comfortable and spacious and the extra seat to make the L-shaped lounge is great. We went for the fabric option for the seating as we didn't fancy the leather in the heat of the south of France, even though it looked lovely.

    We have had a fiamma roll out awning fitted and Alan wanted a reversing camera as we reverse it up to a wall at home so he thought that the lack of a rear window might not be a good thing :Rofl1:

    So far the only issue we've had with it is a leak coming from under the shower tray but it went straight back to the dealer who fixed it and got it back to us 2 days later.

    At the end of the day, until you live with one you won't know for sure but we're 99.9% sure that we LOVE it :BigGrin:

    Hi, We didn't get the same feel for the 750 and the kitchen layout was slightly different. The wardrobe didn't seem as easy to access either.

    Thanks for that, yes we would also have to go for the fabric option as we have 2 little doggies…. We also liked the leather but it's such a light colour :Eeek:

    We don't seem to have managed the art of travelling light….yet! It does sound rather appealing. Although a couple of folding chairs and a folded flat dog trailer (for the bikes) seem to bulk out any space that we will have.

    I'm so glad that we didn't sign on the dotted line, when we first looked at the Bailey's, as we initially wanted the 740. We definitely make use of a dinette area.

    I've just remembered the only criticism I have is the weight of the table - it's b....y heavy but Alan doesn't seem too bothered by it

    Personally, I'd go for the leather with the dogs, light or not. Fabric is so hard to clean if it can't be easily removed and put in a washing machine. You can clean leather with a scouring pad!

    It's not so much about the cleaning, it's the scratches....from their claws. :Blush:
