Make & Model
Bailey Retreat Sycamore
Year
2012
Overall
Fantastic layout with the ideal interior and not to dark inside. Was worth the wait.
Space & Practicality
The best in its class, Bailey have got this one right. It will be interesting to see this developed in two years.
Quality & Reliability
Waiting for bailey to check. Wood decor not glued in place tidy. Small crack in kitchen splash back. Front seats in plain cheep ply not finished with hinges like mid seating. Pin hole in front roof blind. Water slow to drain from sinks leaving it hard to remove dirty marks in sink.
Equipment & Comfort
2 built in radios. Bed is a little soft. Heating is fantastic on cold days. Plenty of roof vents although the bedroom one won't hold in the mid position as the wind lifts it then it closed. Fantastic use of space. Not sure about on board tank. It's to small to be of any use then you have to pump from the barrel to refill before using internal water again. No built in clock.
Value for Money
No fitted extras although for only 22k it is worth it's money if you compare to others in same price range.
