Bailey Caravans have been developed using over sixty years of experience in caravan design and are manufactured in a state-of-the-art production facility to provide the very best in touring home quality and value.

The company will now be bringing this same level of expertise to the Motorhome market with the introduction of a new range in October 2011

The first vehicles will be a range of coachbuilt motorhomes featuring the award winning Alu-Tech body shell construction system. This state of the art technology, conceived initially for the company's touring caravan ranges, is seen by many as the most significant development in leisure vehicle production technology for over thirty years.

Engineered to ensure it remains weatherproof and structurally sound the Alu-Tech bodyshell sets the standards in terms of durability. A new design interlocking external framework provides greater strength and rigidity as well as significantly reducing the number of external joints and fixing points thus minimising the potential for water ingress and improving the overall integrity of the protective shell.

At the same time timber free upper bodyshell panels, featuring a composite plastic internal skeleton also offer a second line of defence by limiting the impact any possible ingress may cause.

The body assembly incorporates thicker laminated panels which combine with additional supplementary insulation in traditional cold-spot areas to improve the thermal properties of the shell, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer as well as making the vehicle more economical to own. 

For more information of the design story behind the Alu-Tech construction system please visit the website

Over the past twelve months Bailey has been working on modifying the Alu-Tech system using the latest 3-D modelling computer software to specifically suit the needs of a motorhome. The resulting vehicles have then been subjected to a series of accelerated life and structural tests as well as being given a thorough examination in a climate control chamber at the internationally renowned Millbrook Proving Ground to ensure that every aspect of the new designs have been thoroughly evaluated.

An introductory Bailey Motorhome web site is now live and this will be updated with regular news and product information prior to the official public launch in October later this year.

Bailey will be fitting the AL-KO AMC chassis as standard in all of the models of its first motorhome range.

The AL-KO AMC chassis is designed specifically for use in the motorhome market. The flexibility of the system means Bailey can choose from a wide range of wheel base variations and track widths to tailor the platform to suit the specific needs of each of the models in the range.

Designed very much with driver comfort in mind the AL-KO AMC chassis conversion provides a number of key benefits which will enhance the enjoyment of the vehicle.

Most notably these include:-

    * The low-line chassis reduces the centre of gravity of the motorhome which in turn will improve stability, road holding and cornering performance.
    * The wider track suspension provides a better balanced weight distribution improving braking efficiency and wheel grip.
    * The chassis has been specially engineered to provide maximum strength and stability within the lightest possible frame. It is therefore notably lighter than the original manufacturer's version ensuring that increased user payloads are achievable for all models.
    * The bespoke nature of the system allows the integration of the vehicle services, on-board water and waste tanks and where appropriate, seat belt mounting points for the rear passengers. The result is better more user-friendly vehicle designs.

For more information on the AL-KO AMC Chassis please visit:- www.al-ko.co.uk/pages/amc-motorhome-chassis.html. Pre-production models, featuring the AL-KO AMC chassis, have been subjected to a series of accelerated life and structural tests at the internationally renowned Millbrook Proving Ground to ensure that the performance of the new designs has been thoroughly evaluated prior to launch.

Following the crash test simulation testing at the Millbrook Proving Ground Bailey has also added extra outriggers to the chassis to further strengthen the floor in the dedicated rear passenger seating areas.

See the new range of models at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2011, NEC, Birmingham (Stand 19-29 Hall 19) on 11th October.

Bailey Confirms Name of New Motorhomes

161

Renowned for their caravans, Bailey recently announced a new range of motorhomes for launch at the NEC show in October 2011.

Bailey has now confirmed that the name of its first motorhome range will be the new Bailey Approach SE.

The company says it has chosen a name which reflects the new thinking behind its motorhome products whilst at the same time promoting the idea of 'travelling to' and 'arriving at' your chosen destination. You can view more details on the range here.

Model Range


Initially the new Approach SE range will feature three of the most popular layouts currently on the market:-

Approach SE 620 - 2-berth low-line end-kitchen

Approach SE 740 - 4-berth low-line end-bedroom (fixed double bed)

Approach SE 760 - 6- berth high-line end-lounge

All models feature the Peugeot 2.2 Hdi 130 bhp engine complete with a 6-speed manual gearbox, AL-KO AMC chassis and the Alu-Tech bodyshell as standard specification.

Further models will be added to the range at a later date.

Launch Timetable

Models will be unveiled for the first time at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2011, NEC, Birmingham (Stand 19-29 Hall 19) on 11th October. Display models will be arriving at Retailer Depots from Mid-November onwards.

An introductory Bailey Motorhome web site is now live. A full product microsite, containing comprehensive product images and information plus a 360 degree product tour of each mode, will go live on 13th September.

Oh!..so going by the look of what's on that Bailey link..neither the two berth nor the four berth models have any belted travel seats?..

How on earth can that be a good,well thought out design!?...

..I .can't really see what's going to set them that far apart from the usual" front lounge/inwards facing settee" designs....

Bailey Approach SE 740

Following feedback from its recent motorhome trade and media launch Bailey is pleased to announce the forthcoming addition of the Approach SE 745 model to its first motorhome range.

Based upon the popular Approach SE 740 layout, this model features a rear fixed double bed which is complemented by a large separate shower corner washroom and a well-designed L-shaped centre kitchen featuring a full size Dometic Series-8 refrigerator. The difference lies in the front seating arrangement where instead of parallel front bunks the 745 layout has an offside front facing bench seat supplied with two additional three-point seat belts as standard and a wall mounted dinette table.

Although this type of model can sleep up to four people, typically in most instances it is usually used a two-berth. The addition of the Approach SE 745 will however give people the option of this best-selling layout with two dedicated rear passenger seats allowing it to be used as genuine multi-berth vehicle.

As with all models in the range this motorhome benefits from the safety benefits incorporated into the vehicle design following the crash simulation testing carried out by Bailey at the internationally renowned Millbrook Proving Ground.

The high-performance Alu-Tech bodyshell stood up well to this series of examinations and required very little in the way of modification. However, following the results of the initial trails, Bailey has made enhancements to the design of both the motorhome floor and furniture, as well as re-locating under locker lighting, to improve passenger protection. In addition the company has also taken the decision to include a dedicated stowage location for side mounted tables whilst in transit as this proved to be a significant hazard if left in situ in the event of an impact.

Key safety features, such as an ABS braking system plus driver and passenger airbags are also specified as standard in the cab in all models and four three-point seatbelts are fitted for the rear passengers in the six berth Approach SE 760 model.

Bailey add Approach SE 625 to Motorhome Range

In response to customer feedback from the Motorhome and Caravan Show in October Bailey has announced the forthcoming addition of the Approach SE 625 model to its motorhome range.

The two berth SE 625 was the most commonly asked for layout not featured in the original line-up at the public launch. Built on a 3,500kg chassis this model has an overall length of 6.51m (21'4") and an overall width of 2.42m (7'11") with a 1.96m (6'5") headroom.

Bailey Approach SE 625

The layout features a generous u-shaped rear lounge which can convert in to either two single or one large double bed at night. In the centre of the vehicle there is spacious washroom, featuring a fully lined separate shower cubicle, on the offside and a well-equipped kitchen boasting a Dometic 8-Series refrigerator, a new Spinflo anti-shock oven and a stainless steel 700 watt microwave on the nearside.

It is powered by the Peugeot 2.2 Hdi 130 bhp engine complete with a 6-speed manual gearbox and is built on the new Euro 5 base and will thus benefit from the resulting improvements in performance and reduction in vehicle emissions. This is complemented by the luxury lightweight AL-KO AMC chassis which, with its lower centre of gravity, provides a more balanced weight distribution that improves road holding and braking efficiency as well as allowing increases in user payloads.

All models come supplied with a 105Ah auxiliary battery to give greater independence away from a mains power source and a 100 litre fully insulated external fresh water tank for continuous supply in cold temperature conditions. The dual fuel Truma 'Combi' central heating system provides effective heating en-route or on site.

The motorhome interior feature Italian styled furniture in a rich 'walnut' wood veneer which combines with the luxurious Vivaldi soft furnishings, constructed using premium quality Belgian fabrics and fully sprung cushions, to make the habitation area both warm and inviting.

Bailey Approach SE 625

The SE 625 is the fifth model in the Approach range - the full line up of which is as follows:-
  • Approach SE 620 - 2-berth low-line end-kitchen
  • Approach SE 625 - 2-berth low-line end-lounge
  • Approach SE 740 - 4-berth low-line end-bedroom (fixed double bed)
  • Approach SE 745 - 4-berth low-line end-bedroom with designated rear passenger seats
  • Approach SE 760 - 6- berth high-line end-lounge

Find out more

The Approach SE 625 will be unveiled for the first time at the Motorhome Caravan and Camping Show 2012, ExCel, London (Stand N160 Entrances N4 & N5) on 14th February. Display models will be arriving at Retailer Depots from End-March onwards

In order to maintain their pricing structure and to offset recent increases in raw material and component costs Bailey have carried out a review of their motorhome sales package. As a result of this review they have decided that the period of the free 4-year extension to the standard 6-year bodyshell integrity guarantee will now end on both caravans and motorhomes.

This will become a cost option available with an RRP of 189 (incl IPT) in the first year of ownership and with an RRP of 229 (incl IPT) thereafter.

This change will be applicable on all motorhome models manufactured from Monday 20th February with the exception of those units that have already been retailed which will retain the existing warranty package.

The updated motorhome warranty information is now displayed on their motorhome website
