We've bought a new caravan. We went a bit overboard and bought a Bailey 2010 Pegasus 624. This is a large twin-axle 4 berth van with a fixed bed. We picked it up on Friday and spent one night on a campsite in torrential rain. Very happy so far.

Not really - it was pouring rain, so I didn't do much. I've a slightly out of focus phone photo of the two dogs!


If that works.

That looks excellent!  What prompted the change?

It wasn’t a planned change. We came across the new one at a bargain price and decided to give it a try.

Not sure why I didn't post this before but we went to the Lambourn area BCQ hunting for a couple of days in September and had to do a bit of creative levelling on the site.  We were on the limit of 4 stacking discs and full extention on the front legs.  We needed a ramp on the jockey wheel to get enough lift.  Getting down was a multi stage operation.

Nice campsite though and a wonderful view.

That’s caravans for you!  And other things like bikes to be fair. I hope you have lots of fun in it.

Nicely done!
