UK caravan builder debuts Aussie  market  bid at Caulfield Caravan and Camping Supershow

Bailey is the largest caravan manufacturer in the UK,and they are determined to succeed in the Australian market, Bailey Australia Managing Director, Adrian Van Geelan said today.

The futuristically re-styled 2013 Bailey Unicorn Series 2 range makes its debut on the Bailey Australia stand at the show at the Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow at Melbournes Caulfield Racecourse tomorrow, Thursday (March 7). Industry website Auto news reports today that The Bristol UK built Bailey arrived in the Australian market early last year. Since then about 250 Baileys caravans have taken to Australian highways. the new Unicorn S2 models feature more impact resistant and even better insulated side and roof body panels, uprated axles, they have substantially larger water tanks and larger refrigerators, improved stone protection, a taller ride height with better ground clearance, helped by a new spare wheel carrier mounted higher in the chassis for better ground clearance, plus improved flyscreens and window blinds to deal with Aussie mossies and Australias harsh sunlight.

Other detail changes based on customer feedback include the fitting of an external grab rail for safer entry and exit, a more ergonomic kitchen design with a two-stage bench height, an increased number of 240v and 12v power outlets and more robust fixing of wardrobe hanging rails and internal window surrounds.

All Baileys are now pre-wired for solar power and satellite television, there is a new leatherette trim option as an alternative to the luxurious standard fashion fabric upholstery and all are fitted with Michelin tyres mounted on 15-inch rims.

Like all Baileys, the new models are built on a lightweight, yet strong fabricated and galvanised steel chassis using the companys patented Alu-Tech five-part modular construction, in which the 32mm composite wall and ceiling and 44mm thick floor are housed in a structural interlocking aluminium framework.

This industry-leading concept has resulted in further weight-savings in the latest models, ensuring that the entire Unicorn S2 range can be legally and safely towed by family-sized Australian cars and most light SUVs.

The proven strength of this advanced construction allows Bailey to warrant all its caravans for six year in body shell integrity, with a three-year guarantee on manufacturers components.

The three-model Bailey Unicorn S2 range being sold by Bailey Australia includes single and twin axle models, with internal body lengths ranging from 5.682mm (18ft 8in) to 6.232mm (20ft 5in) and tare weights from 1560kg to 1680kg.
