Bailey announce new motorhome model
Based upon the Approach SE 740 layout, this model features a rear fixed double bed complemented by a large separate shower corner washroom and an L-shaped centre kitchen featuring a full size Dometic Series-8 refrigerator.
The difference between the two new models lies in the front seating arrangement where instead of parallel front settees, the 745 layout has an offside front facing bench seat with two three-point seat belts as standard and a wall mounted dinette table.
The addition of the Approach SE 745 will give people the option of this best-selling layout with two dedicated rear passenger seats allowing it to be used as a multi-berth vehicle.
As with all models in the range this motorhome benefits from the safety benefits incorporated into the vehicle design following the crash simulation testing carried out by Bailey at Millbrook Proving Ground. The high-performance Alu-Tech bodyshell stood up well to this series of examinations and required very little in the way of modification.
However, following the results of the initial trails, Bailey has made enhancements to the design of both the motorhome floor and furniture, as well as re-locating under locker lighting, to improve passenger protection. In addition the company has also taken the decision to include a dedicated stowage location for side mounted tables whilst in transit as this proved to be a significant hazard if left in situ in the event of an impact.
Key safety features, such as an ABS braking system plus driver and passenger airbags are also specified as standard in the cab in all models and four three-point seatbelts are fitted for the rear passengers in the six berth Approach SE 760 model.
