We can't help but feel a pang of pride whenever a British company flies the flag for UK caravan manufacturing overseas.

So when Bailey of Bristol teamed up with Specialised Covers to show the Aussies a thing or two about off-road towing, we we're delighted.

The Alu-Tech manufacturer set off to the Flinders region last year with a Bailey Pegasus GT65 and a Bailey Unicorn in tow, with the aim of matching an Australian caravan for sheer wilderness durability.

To make sure their models were as well looked after as possible and looking their best when they completed the test, Bailey turned to Specialised Covers.

In this video, CaravanTimes gets the inside story on this epic adventure from Bailey's Simon Howard and Elliot Long, Managing Director of Specialised Covers.

We hear how the Tow Pro Elite cover was specifically designed to tackle tough terrain like this, but can be just as useful for a relaxing trip to the coast.
