Bailey Approach Compact

Tuesday, 29, Oct 2013 03:37

Following on from the success of the Bailey Approach Autograph, the Approach Compact range was launched in October 2013 to offer more Alu-Tech motorhome choice.

Featuring two initial layouts that both measure in at under 6m long, this range is primarily aimed at first-time motorhomers and touring couples.

Despite the models' smaller size, Bailey of Bristol has still managed to pack in all the premium specification that made the Approach Autograph such a big hit.

This means Swedish central heating by Alde, an opening front sunroof, a dual-fuel hob in the kitchen and a Banner leisure battery powering all the electrical appliances.

Built on a Peugeot Boxer cab, these motorhomes are Euro5 compliant and are powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that generates 130bhp.

As with every Bailey leisure vehicle, the Approach Compact is built using the patented Alu-Tech system, which ensures a more lightweight and robust bodyshell.

And peace of mind is delivered in the form of a three-year base vehicle warranty and a six-year bodyshell integrity guarantee, both of which can be extended for an additional cost.

Bristanbul Tour Days 1 and 2

The Bristanbul tour in depth article

The Bristanbul tour was as fun as it was ambitious, 21 countries in 21 days. I was fortunate enough to get an invite on the tour, spaces are not very easy to come by. I was originally going to do all 21 days but due to obligations back in the UK I could only complete 18 days. Over 18 days I was able to complete legs 1, 2 and 3 of the tour as well as visit 10 countries I had never been to before.

Two And A Half Days In Prague And The Skoda Factory

A few days well spent in Prague

My last few days on Bailey's Bristanbul tour were rather manic, and that is putting it lightly. With a mid afternoon arrival as Camp Sokol and a final day to roam Old Town I made sure that my time spent it Prague was full of sites and experiences. It was my last day on the tour after all.
