Bailey Ranger GT60 510-4
Price new: £12,295
This caravan is a: four berth with an end washroom
Wow! Where do you find a five-metre-body caravan with a kitchen as big as this? Answer: amid Bailey’s crop of well-priced entry-level family caravans.
The 510-4’s kitchen surface size is amazing in a caravan of this size. Even with the plastic removable drainer in place, you still have about two thirds of a metre width of surface, plus more surrounding the hob. And the hob has four burners – another plus-point in a budget-priced model.
The kitchen is cleverly designed. The oven and grill are offset to the left of the hob, with the fridge to the left. To the right is the heater with, above it, two wide drawers.
It isn’t all good news, though. Although this kitchen is well designed for cooking, there are no cupboards. Your only storage space is the overhead lockers. So where would you store food other than in the fridge? Lightweight items would be fine in one or more of the head lockers that run right the way round this caravan... It took us a few minutes to work out the best compromise for the baked bean cans and other heavy items, though. The cupboard beneath the front-central drawer unit, perhaps? It’s a workable solution – one worth considering for, other than lack of kitchen cupboard space, this is one superb caravan for its price.

| Bailey launched its GT60 models, with more equipment and more luxury than the base-model Rangers, to celebrate 60 years of manufacture. The resulting caravans adhere to the Ranger ideals (no-nonsense good value) but also give us that little bit more specification than a basic model.
The 510-4 layout is a brilliant, lightweight, well-priced family model that packs a lot of layout into a short length.
