    Obviously another caravan NOT designed by a woman. What a stupid layout. Ugly too, bring back the Pursuit range!

    A lot of caravan for your money. I am waiting delivery of a Dealer Special version that has lots of extra goodies inc ATC (why such a good safety feature it’s not fitted as standard is beyond me) plus a lot of other niceties that bump the spec up to virtually the same as a Bailey Cabrera (same layout) with the exception that the Phoenix has blown air not ALDI heating. The really important thing is that my dealer special costs six thousand pounds les than the Cabrera!!! I certainly cannot see how its worth 30% more!
    Apart from that it seems to be an excellent choice for couples, especial if you have the occasional guests staying as the bathroom is amidships so is accessible to all occupants at night, an important factor if you are of “a certain age!”
    The one slight niggle I have is that the EHU point is no longer hidden away in the battery locker (the battery is now under the floor) so the hook up point is on the near side, which means it’s sticking out into the awning space with the potential of the cable becoming a trip hazard. A much better location would be out of the way on the offside along with the water inlet & gas locker. I sometimes wonder if caravan designers ever actually use the products they design. Perhaps the fact that it would take about 2m more mains cable to cross the caravan and reach the charger was the influencing factor? If so that’s really penny pinching!

    I have just taken delivery of an upspec 640 from Chipping Sodbury caravans which is renamed Platinum. I was very disappointed to find there is no carpet fitted in the bathroom area and a very cheap alternative microwave oven that did not fit the aperture leaving a gap of about an inch around..
