Begin your adventures with the new Bailey Approach Compact Motorhome

A new type of motorhome, the Approach Compact shares many of the practical advantages of a panel van conversion, such as ease of use and lower running costs, but with the design flexibility and extra interior space found in a coachbuilt motorhome to create a genuinely different vehicle ideally suited for a modern day adventurer.

All models are built using the patented Alu-Tech bodyshell, including a GRP outer skin for extra durability, which provides the vehicle with numerous benefits of ownership including market-leading thermal insulation, allowing you to holiday all year round, plus a comprehensive manufacturer’s warranty and an extended bodyshell integrity guarantee for long term peace of mind (terms & conditions apply). This is married to a fully-specified Peugeot Boxer Euro 5 cab, powered by a 2.2 Hdi 130 bhp engine complete with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and a new ultra-low profile lightweight AL-KO AMC chassis to provide the very best in on-the-road performance.

The compact 5.99m long and 2.35m wide exterior disguises a spacious interior, featuring internal headroom of up to 6’9’’, which includes everything you will need for anything from a weekend break to an extended holiday. Clever use of this space results in two practical layouts which ideally suit this type of vehicle. The two berth Compact 520 features a front lounge, central kitchen and washroom plus a raised rear fixed double bed with garage storage underneath. In contrast the three berth Compact 540 has a full width end washroom, a central kitchen and a L-shaped front lounge with a drop down double bed located above.

Taking design cues from its sister Approach Autograph range the Compact  features the same contemporary interior styling with the signature Bailey Walnut furniture finish, high gloss worktops and polished chrome fittings plus a choice of either Trafalgar or Piccadilly luxurious soft furnishing options. In addition as people have come to expect from Bailey, models are extremely well specified and are packed with all the home comforts owners will need for relaxing and enjoyable holidays. Notably they include fully equipped kitchens, featuring the new Thetford Combi combination anti-rattle oven/grill, a Thetford three burner gas-hob and a Dometic refrigerator plus well-designed washrooms which contain a separate fully lined cubicle containing an energy-saving EcoCamel shower system.

Thanks to the Bailey trademark value package models are also available for less than you might think - particularly when you consider what you might get for your money with a comparable van conversion.
