    Been waiting for a few weeks to pick it up , so we can have the new reg .Its a bailey 765 which is a 6 birth , seems rather extravagant as we are only a couple . It swallowed up all the gear that we have amassed that used to fill up our old MH with plenty of room leftover . Retirement is just around the corner and we are hoping to spend longer periods of time away so the extra space will come in handy we hope !
    We were both impressed with Becks ,the dealer who were very straight forword to deal with and gave us a good demo on all the appliances .We will have to see what their after sales service is like ,but so far so good .
    We are going to overnight locally tomorrow just to try everything out ,then all being well we are off for a fortnight ,not sure where , depends on the weather .:)

    Congratulations on getting the new van, very exciting! We have been to have a look round Becks, usually have a chat with Greg, the salesman who used to work at Simpsons where we bought our vans.

    We like the look of the Bailey motorhomes, seem to be amazing value. Maybe you could post a few pics of your new pride and joy and let us know how you get on.

    Good luck.

    Paul

    We looked at the 6 berth some time ago but it immediately struck me that it is pretty poor that with 6 people it has a small fridge. Can only be a payload issue but impractical? Has it changed?

    I don't think the OP is planning to travel with 6 people. :) But it isn't a surprise something so big struggles with payload. However, I guess with most buyers many of the passengers will be little people - but where to store all their ice cream is indeed a worry!

    I had to buy a cool box to give us the space we needed - but we also wanted an oven and a larger fridge wasn't then an option.
