Best Family Lightweight Caravan: Bailey Discovery D4-4
Winner: Bailey Discovery D4-4
Bailey’s ultra-lightweight Discovery range is a curvy caravan with rounded rear body lines, an eye-catching exterior colour scheme involving four shades of grey–and one central front window that arches high into the roofline.
Bailey is targeting a younger, hipper market, and it shows! You can buy an air awning which wraps around the rear and along the side of the caravan that further maximises the space that a growing family needs. And it feels massive!
Discoverys are built using the Alutech system. This construction system involves an interlocking aluminium framework and a composite plastic internal skeleton, so it uses no wood in the side panels.
For such a compact caravan the amount of lounge seating is phenomenal. Nice touches are the USB ports set into the bases of the spotlights with fabric pockets beneath them to place your phones.
Upholstery fabrics are plain grey, edged with pale mustard piping. Two cushions come as standard; one side is bright mustard and the other is plain grey. It’s stylish and ready to personalise with throws and cushions if you wish.
The D4-4 offers two variations – two fixed doubles or a fixed double and a twin bed. This is a caravan that has all of Bailey’s quality hallmarks but lighter in both weight and on the wallet.
End washroom, fixed bed, twin bed option
