At last there's an affordable compact caravan with a French bed and a rear washroom – enjoy the new Practical Caravan 2016 Bailey Pegasus Modena review to see what you think. Does it have all the desirable qualities of the Verona, in a more compact caravan body? We'd love to know your views.

I think they have executed the floor plan very well and done a good job in a small space. The new higher back seating is also very comfortable. The new graphics and white body shell are an improvement too. For us that is where the positives end compared with our GT65. We don't like all the steps backwards, loss of ATC, loss of sealed front locker space, loss of alko wheel locks, lack of pleated blinds and the shiny handles on the interior show every finger print. Not sure if they have also dropped external 230 socket and bbq point? On a personal taste front we also don't like the finish around the front window and roof light and the new magazine rack.

The photos at the start of the article show AL-KO wheel locks fitted.

The locks are no longer standard, now an optional extra.

There appears to be a cult emerging in the caravan industry whereby we now get less for our money than in previous years.
Have you noticed how many of us are keeping our caravans longer.

Sir DD, we're keeping ours as long as I can keep going. Having adaptions done over the winter.
Prof, as is the case with most chocolate products!!

When I was a lad wagon wheels were the size of a crisp packet but now the size of a normal biscuit. Perhaps trading standards need to be involved because they should really be called roller skate wheels. :lol:

It looks a good compromise between weight and a fixed bed but have not seen it in the flesh yet. The loss of any front locker though leaves me wondering where I store my bits I don't want in the caravan.
