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.
