Bailey launches into the eight-foot-wide market with a new range of Pegasus Grande models.

The six-model range includes two single-axle models. These are the first single-axle, eight-feet wide models to be made in Britain.

They are called Brindisi and Rimini, names used for models in the standard-width Pegasus range which this new range replaces. But Pegasus Grande models are not simply wider versions of previous layouts. Bailey has invented a completely new lounge layout, called a G-shape.

Bailey Pegasus Grande Brindisi

Seating runs along the offside, across the front and wraps around towards a two-person table on the nearside. When you remove the table, you have a U-shaped lounge. With the table in place, you have an L-shaped lounge.

This lounge layout is in the transverse-bed Brindisi and twin-bed Rimini and two of the four twin-axle Pegasus Grande models. These are the Bologna, which has a transverse island bed, 1.83m long when extended for night-time mode and is basically a stretched version of the Brindisi, and a new layout, the Messina.

This model has an island bed at the rear with a central shower and separate toilet compartment.

Family layouts

There are two six-berth Pegasus Grande models, the Palermo and Turin. These models have parallel lounge layouts and a separate, four-seater offside dining area.

Bailey Pegasus Grande Palermo

The Palermo has bunks at the rear on the nearside. The shower room is on the offside. Between the shower and the bunks is a small seating and table area, ideal for children. This layout is like those which first appeared in the Elddis and Compass ranges last year and quickly established a following among buyers.

Bailey Pegasus Grande Turin

The Turin has a double bed, 1.86m long and 1.37m wide, in the offside rear corner, with the shower room alongside it. Again, this is a similar layout to that which first appeared in Elddis and Compass ranges, and then other manufacturers followed. The offside dining areas in both the Turin and Palermo transform into double beds.

Equipment

Pegasus Grande models have the AL-KO ATC stability control system. The heating system is Truma Combi; 4 kW in single-axle models and 6kw in twin-axle models. Twin-axle models have the Dometic 134-litre fridge-freezer. Single-axle models have the 103-litre fridge.

Weights

The Rimini's MTPLM is 1498 kg; its MIRO is 1343 kg. The Twin-axle Messina's MTPLM is 1669kg; its MIRO is 1510 kg. Weights of the other models have yet to be announced.

Prices

Prices range between £22,999 - £24,499.
