The Baileys now use the AlKo ultra low chassis. As I said you should join the Facebook page I mentioned up thread where you can ask "real" owners their experiences. Ever since the Bailey range was introduced the there been people saying they are too low but the experience of owners suggests it is not the problem it is made out to be. There are two owners who have contributed to this thread who have said that there really isn't an issue. I have grounded once in 19000 miles and under particularly unique circumstances.

Well picked up our new 75-2 on Friday and headed straight to Southport CMC site
The width isn't an issue after the first couple of miles it felt just like the 155
Just make sure the blind spot mirrors and rearview camera are set correctly
Speed bumps and adverse camber were not a problem
Lovely drive due to the alko chassis and the addition of alde heating is amazing
Hopefully this one we might keep longer than 2 yrs lol
