New ultra-lightweight caravan range from Bailey

01be6fba-d996-46f6-9e7c-d7e9dab72fea

Bailey launches into the activity caravan market with a new range of three lightweight models called Discovery, starting at £16,199.

There’s a two-berth, a three-berth and a four-berth. This new range is created to appeal to first-time buyers. They will be available at retailers’ premises from early September onward.

The launch of the Discovery range, following the unveiling of a new flagship Alicanto range in July, means that Bailey now has its biggest-ever caravan portfolio.

New caravan shape

The shape and style of these caravans is radically different from that of all other caravans, with rounded rear body lines and one tall central front window. The rounded body shape has been designed in the interest of aerodynamic efficiency and fuel economy.

Like all of Bailey’s other ranges, Discoverys are built using the Alu-Tech system.

This construction system involves an interlocking aluminium framework and a composite plastic internal skeleton, so no wood is used in side panels.

All with model names inspired by the names of robots in Star Wars, there’s a two-berth, a three-berth and a four-berth.

A unique-design awning has been developed for the Discovery range by Prima Leisure, Bailey’s parts and accessories division. The awning wraps around both the rear and side of the caravan. The awning will be priced at £1199. A sleeping compartment is available at £89.

Discoverys have extended drawbars to accommodate a cycle rack; Discovery buyers will be able to get a Thule cycle rack designed for this A-frame, for £349. A storage box will also be available, at £599. (Gas cylinders are accommodated in exterior cabinets in the body of the caravan.)
