    I have read the comments of John Shepherd and all I can say is he has it totally wrong. I purchased this van new in 2009 and my wife and I do not have children. This van is total comfort for us as a older couple. when we meet up with friends we have lots of room and at night I use the front as a giant bed and the wife uses the dinning area as her large bed. This must be the best 2 person van on the market.

    With the utmost respect to both the competition winners that spurned the Bailey Ardennes from the Bailey Brambler and Bailey of Bristol the manufacturers – I fail to see how this caravan design could be seen as being anything other than restrictive when it comes to a family friendly layout.
    What is family friendly about a caravan that can only permit siblings and or childhood friends to share a bed until the age that it becomes questionable about opposite gender sharing a bed.
    There is a huge difference between separate beds/bunk-beds and the only layout that is present in this model.
    When the price of such a caravan is taken into consideration and the relatively short usable life as a “family caravan” of this model – it is an expensive holiday option for a family of mum,dad and two children of opposite gender.
