About Bailey                What Have They Achieved?

Sixty Years of Innovation

Founded in 1948 Bailey Caravans is the longest established UK manufacturer with over sixty years experience in caravan design and production. During this period it has grown to become not only the UK's number one caravan brand, accounting for approximately one in three new caravan sales, but also now one of the largest in Europe.


Bailey - The Award Winners

Every one of their caravans offers the core Bailey values of first class build quality, award winning design and unbeatable value for money. Recognition of these virtues has come with the receipt of numerous product awards from leading industry observers, plus repeatedly strong showings in independent quality and reliability surveys.


Bailey - Quality and Innovation

Bailey have adopted a policy of continuous improvement whereby they are constantly evaluating how and why they do things. In doing so, they ensure that they continue to manufacture technically advanced products that combine first class build quality with market leading value for money.

The Alu-Tech body shell construction system is the most significant development in caravan production technology for over thirty years. After having undertaken the most comprehensive product design programme the industry has ever known, the Bailey development team has produced a construction system that is so unique that it has necessitated the commissioning of over 100 bespoke tools to build it and that features a design so advanced that it has 5 new patents pending. The result is a caravan that is triumph of engineering and technological advancement that offers real advantages of ownership; advantages that lead Bailey to believe that one day all caravans will be made this way.

To really appreciate the quality and value of all Bailey models and to help you make an informed decision about which tourer would best suit your needs, we recommend you visit our other pages detail every aspect of these models or visit us - we will be happy to demonstrate why Bailey has become the UK's favourite touring caravan brand.
