New Bailey Pegasus models

The Bailey Pegasus range gets big changes for 2016  with four new layout, a unique lounge-bed construction, lower prices and lower weights. The new models were unveiled on July 17.

Exterior looks are closer to Unicorns, with a change from cream to white, and the introduction of the big, bold graphics incorporating the Bailey “B” along the sides. Interior furnishings look more like Unicorns, too, with part-gloss locker doors and pale fawn “Italian stone” kitchen surfaces, with hinged extensions.

Dual fuel hobs are introduced. And some models have the tall 133-litre fridge-freezer.

The biggest interior change is in Pegasus lounges, with a new settee construction called DreamSleep, which transforms into a double bed in less than a minute. The seat sections fold out, to make the mattress, in less than a minute. The backrests don’t form part of the bed, and two of the four can be used as pillows. These backrests are higher; closer to the height you’d find in a domestic settee, and they’re shaped to support both back and shoulders.

The DreamSleep settee-bed construction, unique to Bailey, is made from high quality dense foam, with fibres that stand vertically.

The new Pegasus range gets the Truma Combi 6 E blown-air heating system, which gives out up to 6KW of power and achieved Grade 3 temperature testing in record time. The test specifies a caravan must warm up from -15C to + 15C in four hours. When a Pegasus Verona was tested for Grade 3 certification in the Truma Climate Centre cold chamber, the temperature rose to 15C in 64 minutes. Truma UK says this is the fastest warm-up time so far achieved by a caravan.

Both weight and price is reduced through the Pegasus range, by up to 22kg and £400.

There are three new models These are the Modena, with a fixed bed, the Brindisi with a transverse island bed, and the Palermo, a twin-axle five-berth with bunk beds.

The five-berth Ancona gets a completely new layout, with a full-width shower room and bunks plus a dining area in the centre of the caravan.
