    Like the layout but think the garage is too low to get my bikes in sadly:confused:

    Worth mentioning - can get the same layout but with a full size garage as a free (I believe) option if you like!

    We wanted this version as: we prefer a lower bed height; haven't had a garage of any sort before so smaller one is a bonus; and we don't mind using a bike rack.

    Tall garage version is lovely, just wasn't for us

    We found the 598 with the high bed a good fit (inside & length for driveway) for us but need to wait a few weeks.
    Please update us how you get on with it & where is power for 12v tv?

    Hi loving it so far but only had it for 10 days or so, and managed 3 nights away. In ours the standard12v TV socket is just by the door with swivel bracket facing into the lounge. You can swivel it round to see it from the bedroom, but for us the viewing distance from the bedroom is too far. We had a second 12v socket, aerial point and bracket installed in the bedroom too.

    Well it's early days for us but I don't think you'll regret it if you go for it!

    Did yours come with a ladder for the front drop down bed?

    Great - haven't found a ladder - yet - however it drops down quite low so it's not a worry for us.
