Bailey of Bristol has joined forces with The Camping and Caravanning Club to champion safer caravanning, by supplying them with a new fleet custom-built caravans for use on their highly popular Caravan Manoeuvring Courses.
These twelve units, based on the best-selling Bailey Pursuit 430-4 model, will be put into action at The Camping and Caravanning Club’s accredited training centres, where they will be used by members and non-members to practice caravanning skills and allow them to gain confidence towing. Under the watchful eye of professional instructors, the courses focus on practical driving experience and are designed to increase road safety awareness, whilst giving caravanners the skills to manoeuvre their outfit with confidence.
The caravans will also be used by non-members at the Club’s ‘Towing Experience’ initiatives, which run at major industry shows, including both NEC exhibitions, and offer new caravanners a chance to try towing for the first time.
Models from the Pursuit range are ideally suited to this particular role with their lightweight design making them accessible to a wide range of vehicles while their compact well-balanced body shells make them easy to manoeuvre both on site and on the road. As with all Bailey leisure vehicles these models are built using Bailey’s patented Alu-Tech construction technology, cloaked in a GRP outer skin, making them more robust, more durable and yet lighter than those manufactured using conventional methods to offer greater protection against the elements to keep owners comfortable, safe and secure all year round. To date approaching 50,000 Bailey leisure vehicles have been built with this ground-breaking technology and are currently being used around the world.
Robert Louden MBE, Director General of The Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “The Club takes the issue of safer caravanning very seriously indeed. By providing high-quality training courses for both new and more experienced caravanners, we aim to equip our caravanning members with the skills and understanding they need to feel confident and relaxed on their British and overseas caravan holidays.”
Bailey Managing Director, Nick Howard, added “We are delighted to support the Club in this initiative and are confident the towing experiences provided will enhance people’s enjoyment of their future caravan holidays”.
