Launched in 2011, the Approach SE was the first motorhome range to be built by Bailey of Bristol.

Built using the company's patented Alu-Tech construction method these motorhomes made a big impact when they were first unveiled.

Driven by a 2.2-litre Peugeot engine and built on an Al-Ko AMC chassis, the Approach SE offers high user payloads throughout the range.

What's more, a six-speed manual gearbox, ABS and cruise control makes this an easy-to-drive option, particularly for first-time motorhomers.

Driver comfort is assured, thanks to the fully adjustable seats and cab air conditioning, while on-board safety equipment includes driver and passenger airbags.

Creature comforts

Moving to the habitation area, Bailey has fitted Italian-style furniture with a rich Walnut woodgrain finish, alongside Vivaldi soft furnishings.

In the kitchen area, Approach SE owners get a Dometic 8-Series refrigerator, a 700W mivrowave oven, Thetford anti-rattle oven and a four-burner hob.

Meanwhile in the washroom all the showers feature a bi-fold door, Eco-camel showerhead and fully-lined cubicles, as well as a deep Belfast-style sink.

Finally, for added peace of mind, all Bailey Motorhomes come with a six-year bodyshell integrity guarantee for added peace of mind.

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.
