Make & Model
Bailey Olympus 624
Year
2010
Overall
We love the deisign, the layout, the cosiness, and the equipment, not to mention the build quality and reliability. The only issue has been a shortage of electric sockets which is not enough to knock a star off the overall rating
Space & Practicality
The layout and space are perfect for a couple like us who like a bit of luxury. The storage is amazing and could be a temptation to overload (which we don't). The bathroom is really spacious and well laid out and the fixed bed is very comfortable.
Quality & Reliability
This is one of the few things that I have bought with virtually no niggles or faults in the first year. The only issue at first service was a loose lock on one of the front side lockers, and that was replaced. We have been absolutely thrilled with this caravan
Equipment & Comfort
Extremely well-equipped and very comfortable. The heating works really well, the shower and bathroom are superb, the caravan is warm, cosy and a real home from home. The only criticism which knocks a star off is a lack of electric sockets. There really should be one at the front of the caravan and there isn't. Nor is there any provision for an awning electric socket, which as we, like quite a few caravanners like to cook on a george foreman in the awning.
Value for Money
Just unbelievable value for money at time of purchase. This cost the same as a much smaller caravan from other makes, and was in some ways better equipped. As out-of season caravanners, the alu-tech is brilliant for keeping you cosy.

Our Top Touring Apps To Help Holidaying

What phone apps are worth looking at?

It was not that long ago that the A to Z was the travelling man's, and woman's, best friend. For years this helped motorists and holiday makers across the UK get from A to B with ease, provided you had a good map reading co-pilot and an update map. Years on it seems technology has made the map book look like a relic. As technology rolls on we take a look at some apps that may just change the way you holiday.

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Caravan Cafe

The mobile cafe is here to help you get your tea and cake fix

The old traditional caravan nowadays is most likely spotted sat on driveways covered in weather ware or just plonked depressingly in fields throughout the country. One special care giver has stumbled upon a very rare vintage van and has decided to turn it into something worthwhile to help out our aging community

Motorhome Hire Franchise Launch And Expansion

Hire franchise plan to change the rental market in the UK

The market for new and second hand leisure vehicles keeps growing and growing as more UK residents are opting to choose a caravan for the next holiday. Another sector within the industry that is seeing a real boom is the leisure vehicle rental market. At last month's NEC Motorhome and Caravan Show the UK's first nationwide motorhome franchise business was launched.

Caravan Review - The Airstream Colorado

Living the dream in the American Airstream

The all American touring icon has been available for purchase from main dealers in the UK for just over a year or so now. Since Airstream's launch in the UK I have not seen a huge amount on the highways of caravan parks across the UK. There may be quite a few reasons for this, most of which have nothing to do with the quality of design build but more to do with how the UK consumer sees the larger red white and blue towing caravan.
