    I am newly retired and my wife and I are thinking of buying a new motorhome. Our preference at the moment is the 3 berth Bailey Approach Compact 540. The 3rd berth attracted us because it's something that could be useful to us on an occasional basis.
    Has anyone got this model? Any comments/views welcomed.

    Hello welcome to Fun , if you don't get the answer on this thread, I would start another one with Bailey Approach 540 any help, that would attract the Bailey owners to comment.

    Welcome! Another Scottish resident here.
    I don't know anything about the model you're interested in but to add my two pence worth I would always look carefully at the amount of storage space and payload it has. It's amazing how much stuff you find yourself carrying with you.
    Happy travels!
