Bailey of Bristol will be unveiling its all new Pursuit caravan range on stand 2100 in hall 2 at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show, from 21 to 26 February, next week.

Available in a choice of six different models featuring four best-sellers (400-2, 430-4, 530-4 & 550-4) and two new family layouts (the 560-5 and 570-6), all models are surprisingly light for vehicles possessing so much interior space and as such are the perfect match for a wide range of potential tow-cars.

Alongside the Pursuit, Bailey of Bristol will also have a selection of its best-selling Unicorn range, Pegasus range and its full Autograph motorhome range and selected Advance motorhomes.

This year, Bailey of Bristol has recognised that caravanning and motorhoming needs to appeal to a wider audience. Memories have therefore become the centre point of its new campaign, designed to encourage new people to take up the hobby and enjoy the freedom it offers.

Throughout their stand at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show, Bailey of Bristol's new creative will take centre stage as your memories start here.

Arctic Adventure

Bailey of Bristol will embark on an epic adventure as they set off on a 5,000 mile roundtrip to the Arctic Circle and back in March. The UK's leading manufacturer will be leaving from the NEC and will have a Pursuit 530-4, one of the fleet travelling to the Arctic on their stand throughout the Camping, Caravan & Motorhome Show.

In association with The Caravan Club, they will be taking two Pursuit caravans, with The Caravan Club taking an Autograph motorhome, through 12 countries in 16 days, with temperatures pushing The Arctic team to the limit, as they could drop as low as -30C.

The team will set off on their ultimate endurance test from Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire on March 2nd and will travel into Finland, stopping at Millbrook's test centre in Ivalo, before travelling back through Scandinavia and returning to Bedford on March 17th.

Throughout the 16-day challenge, the epic journey can be followed on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram through Bailey of Bristol's pages and also via #ArcticAdventure. The team will also be posting blogs/vlogs and social media updates on every step of the adventure.

Bailey of Bristol brand ambassador Lee Davey will be on the Bailey stand to answer questions about the upcoming 'Arctic Adventure'. He will also be taking to the expert stage to discuss how caravanning has enabled a more adventurous side to holidaying, having taken a Bailey of Bristol to Brittany over the summer that allowed for all manner of activities, including, surfing, paddle-boarding, powerboating and wakeboarding, all memories of his own.

Lee will be appearing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 1:15pm in the Discovery Theatre.

Bailey of Bristol Managing Director Nick Howard said: "Having recently spent three weeks in a caravan with my family in Australia over Christmas I can't be more convinced that the opportunity and flexibility that holidaying in a leisure vehicle presents is the best way to build memories.

He added: "We are looking forward to welcoming all on to our stand at this year's Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show as we believe there is something for everybody, no matter whether they are seasoned veterans, first timers or just looking out of interest".
