Previously I’ve featured a post about the Practical Motohome review of the Bailey Approach 740SE, today we are looking at the larger 6 birth version the 760SE. Its built upon the Peugeot Boxer chassis with Alko extensions at the rear to provide more space.
In terms of sleeping there is an adult over cab double bed, a dinette small double bed, and then a very large transvers double bed at the rear of the motorhome. In terms of seating during transit there is obviously the front two cab seats and then there are 4 passenger seats with belts around the dinette. The kitchen on the 760SE is well equipped. You get a large square stainless steel sink, four burner hob, grill, oven and microwave. In terms of the fridge it can operate on either 240V, 12V or gas which gives a lot of flexibility in terms of the places you can visit. There is good storage in the kitchen space, with pull out mesh trays for packaged foods.
In the middle of the motorhome is the washroom, which features a separate shower. However the space inside the shower cubicle is limited and a rather strange shape with the sink in the corner. There is also limited room to move around in the washroom. However the washroom space usually has to be compromised when catering for 6 berths.
The U shaped lounge at the rear of the van has lots of space, easily enough for everyone to sit round. There appears to be no central table provided for dinning. Potentially some of this space could have been used to provide more space into the washroom. The rear lounge can be setup as two singles or a very large double bed. Visibility from the rear lounge is very good. On a caravan site like ours where the view is the main feature its probably a good idea to reverse into the pitch with the back of the van facing the view.
All together the Bailey Approach 760SE is an impressive package for a 6 berth that can happily be used by adults and children. The added benefit of the Alu-Tech body construction means this motorhome will have a long life.
