Bailey of Bristol will be launching a special edition Pegasus GT70 caravan range at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2017 as part of the company’s 70th anniversary celebrations.

The six-model GT70 line-up is based upon the popular fourth-generation Pegasus range but includes a number of key specification upgrades as well as some unique aesthetic enhancements.
Notable additions to the standard equipment list include the AL-KO ATC Trailer Control System and a Bailey branded wheel lock which not only ensure the customer’s investment remains safe on the road and secure on site but also in many cases make it less expensive to insure. Whilst the introduction of the new Truma 100-watt solar panel allows you the extra freedom to holiday where and when you want. Add to this existing Pegasus equipment such as a Truma Combi 4E heating system, a Thetford duel-fuel hob with electric hotplate and a Dometic 134 litre refrigerator* and it is clear that these special caravans possess a host of features which will make your time away in them as relaxing as possible.

To ensure that the GT70s stand out from the crowd they receive special 70th anniversary graphics, graphite coloured alloy wheels and motorhome style flush fit windows throughout. Whilst inside new ‘Bletchley’ soft furnishings combine with new design dual finish overhead locker doors, ‘Sandstone’ kitchen and washroom worktop laminates and ‘Dusted Almond’ loose fit drop in carpets combine to create a fresh new look which in conjunction with the signature Bailey front vertical skylight delivers the perfect room with a view.

As with all Bailey leisure vehicles, models are built using our 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 you comfortable, safe and secure all year round. To date approaching 50,000 Bailey leisure vehicles have been built with this groundbreaking technology and are currently being used around the world.
