Right funsters...

After losing our beloved dog Dave we decided to down size the house and are moving into an apartment as we dont need or want any outside space.
We are also looking into changing the Mh.
We currently have a Bailey 75-2 and love it.
But we are also very keen on doing more trips abroad and thinking the width of the bailey may get us into trouble when trying to get into towns and villages. So are really considering the Warwick xl.
Couple of questions really...
If you use the 2 sofas as single beds what do you sleep in/under/on.
If you make them into the double where do you store the duvet and pillows.

Is there a power option for the sliding door as Kate has no sense of noise.
Forever slamming the hab door now and I know slamming a sliding door would really wind me and other campers up.
Any advice is really appreciated.

Wow big changes, why not try the MoHo abroad once and see if there is a problem really, I doubt it but if there is it will make a great thread:LOL:

Should have added “single beds” :mad:

Ok then here's another question...

Have any funsters got themselves into a tight spot that you wouldn't or couldn't just get through.
Is it just a case of stopping and reversing and just stomach the embarrassment

We previously had a Bailey Approach Autograph 740 and travelled all round France in and out of small villages without any real issues , I think your worrying about your Bailey's width unnecessarily

I find my width more of an issue in this country than abroad. They generally are better setup for MoHo’s.

We have a bailey 625 so shorter than yours but same width.
At a rally last week I went in a new Warwick xl and although beautiful it was so very cramped to ours.
I get what your saying thou and you just need to maybe hire before you buy.

just keep an eye out for width restrictions signage and if your unsure don't continue but find an alternative route

No but Jen has taken a deep breath and closed her eyes a couple of times.

Paul, as Martin has already said you just need to try it out first.
We never had a problem in France, there are loads of delivery vans and bin wagons going into these villages.
Just keep a lookout for the road signs and get yourself a good satnav where you can input you motorhome size.

A long time now
We downsized from an Arto to a Warwick XL and although it was something of an initial shock spacewise and storage wise we are now very happy with it ,we used to take so much stuff it was unreal . The bedding all goes in the underbed seat ,the shower and toilet is bigger than the the Arto was and we store all bits and bobs in plastic storage boxes in the shower space while travelling.We now have a new air awning which is great and that fits in the aisle on the move. The sliding door is not a problem as I keep it clean and lubed with ACF 50 very good stuff and quiet when closing.Fuel consumption is up to now very good in comparison to the 3 litre Arto which was a fine engine but lucky to get 24 mpg.
The only thing I am not too happy with is the back windows when I sit and lol on the seats the blinds get crushed, so I will buy some perspex window covers off Jezport at Stoneleigh if he has any left .The electric door option I have only seen on a Globecar .If you have any more questions feel free to ask .:)

Only once and that was because I didn’t look at a road sign in Navarette.

It was ok though because I had half the town out trying to help me get round a tight corner:rolleyes:
