There's so many great reasons to holiday in a Bailey caravan or motorhome...

We are the manufacturer of the UK’s most popular leisure vehicles and we are the UK’s longest established manufacturer with 70 years of experience in leisure vehicle production and design.


Founded in 1948 Bailey Caravans is the longest established UK independent manufacturer with seventy years’ experience in leisure vehicle production and design. During this period, it has grown to become not only the UK’s favourite caravan brand, accounting for approximately one in three new caravan sales, but also one of the largest producers in Europe.

More recently, in 2011, the company brought this same level of expertise to the motorhome market as well as expanding into new exports markets as far afield as Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.
