The odd touch betrays the 66-2’s entry-level origins – roller rather than concertina blinds on the living area windows, for example – but otherwise this is a great-looking motorhome that feels beautifully built and should really appeal to a couple.
It’s well-priced, too, with an impressive spec and a superb payload.

Storage is good and it has an impressive payload
The kitchen is pretty compact
This six-model entry-level line-up represents a real step-change from the previous four-model offering.
The 66-2 tested here is the baby of the new Bailey Advance family.
It replaces the 635, but has the same front-lounge, end-washroom layout as seen on the latter.
Inside, you’ll notice that the new Bailey Advance is two inches wider than the old one
The step up into the accommodation area is set low, meaning you shouldn’t need a portable step.
Once inside, you’ll notice that the new Bailey Advance is two inches wider than the old one: it definitely feels more spacious.
The 66-2 actually feels more like a caravan inside – there’s loads of room to sit and relax on the ‘Eucalyptus’ upholstery.
Both of the cab seats swivel, and that great rooflight over the cab allows the area to be flooded with light.
Ambient lighting is excellent, too, and includes dimmable spotlights with integrated USB points.
The kitchen is on the offside.
It’s not massive, but there’s a pull-up flap to help extend the available work surface.
A 95-litre fridge, a microwave, and a Thetford combined oven and grill with a three-burner hob are all fitted as standard in the Bailey Advance 66-2.
The washroom stretches right across the rear of the Bailey Advance 66-2.
It’s subtly different from the previous version, but offers plenty of room in which to dress.
Elsewhere here you’ll find a half-height wardrobe, a small cupboard below the basin for toiletries, and a separate shower cubicle.
There’s only one plughole in the latter, but there is a skylight up top to help keep the area bright.
This motorhome is a strict two-berth, and you’ll be sleeping in that lounge.
This year Bailey has done away with its Dreamsleep system, so this is a regular slats-and-cushions double bed.
Made up, it’s a good size at 6’1” long; it’s comfortable, too.
All of the vehicles in this six-model range of Bailey motorhomes have an MTPLM of 3500kg, and there are some amazing payloads.
This one, for example, has a whopping figure of 800kg, which should be more than ample for any couple, even if they’re planning to take a longer tour.
There’s plenty of storage space for you to make use of, too, including under the lounge seats, and in the large dresser unit that sits across from the kitchen – there are also lots of lockers and cupboards to fill in the latter.
