With a rich heritage in building touring caravans, Bailey of Bristol turned their expertise to creating coachbuilt motorhomes in 2011.

The company's debut range, the Bailey Approach SE, was unveiled to much critical acclaim, with many praising the clever use of Bailey's patented Alu-Tech construction method.

Featuring 6'5" internal headroom, this model also boasts a classic-style Bailey Walnut furniture finish and a whole host of practical features.

Key on-board specification includes a Truma Combi boiler, a 100-litre fresh water tank and a Thetford four-burner hob.

Built on an Al-Ko AMC chassis, this model also features a 2.2-litre Peugeot engine, which generates an ample 130bhp of power, delivered through a six-speed manual gearbox.

The success of the Approach SE was such that Bailey was able to build 1,000 models in just over 18 months.

Approach Autograph

Keen to keep refining their motorhomes, Bailey replaced the Approach SE with the Approach Autograph in July 2013.

Featuring a striking exterior colourscheme, this model's modern looks include a graphite cab and polar white flanks.

Key specification upgrades include Alde central heating and an opening sunroof, for added comfort and airflow.

What's more, this range is available in two unique layouts that are not widely available from other manufacturers.

And for added peace of mind, the Bailey Approach Autograph comes backed up by a six-year bodyshell integrity guarantee as standard.

Back To Normality Post Bristanbul

The team that made the Bristanbul tour a success

On the 9th of April 2018 I set off on a tour of a lifetime with the Bailey of Bristol team. As I am sure you are aware the tour was an epic adventure. At the time I did not realise just how amazing the experience would be. You could go as far to say I was borderline apprehensive prior to leaving, for multiple silly reasons. Once I got behind the wheel and got some miles under my belt, along with some valuable lessons from the team, all the fears I had went away which lead me to having an experience of a lifetime.

Convoy Driving And An Evening In Budapest

The team takes on Budapest

Having driven on a lot of undesirable road surfaces and some very questionable routes you do naturally pick up a lot of good habits. Prior to coming on the Bristanbul trip I was nervous about the European way of driving but what I did not take into consideration was the art of convoy driving, something I had never done before.

Castle Dracula And Questionable Road Surfaces

Castle Dracula welcome the Bristanbul tour

While in Romania I was totally surprised about how good the road conditions were until I ventured off the beaten track into farmland. On top of that we took a tour of Castle Bran AKA Castle Dracula.
