The Estoril and Faro are two of the four models in the 8ft wide Bailey Alicanto Grande caravan range. Models from this ‘Luxurious and limitless’ range have topped the Bailey best-sellers list since their introduction, appealing to customers either as a touring or seasonal use vehicle.

The Estoril is a twin-fixed single bed, end-washroom layout, while the Faro is a new-to-Bailey layout, which features a transverse rear double island bed and a central nearside ensuite washroom that sits opposite a well-appointed dressing area.

The single-axle Merida, on the other hand, is one of the seven models in the Unicorn Black Edition range. Already established as the UK’s most popular premium caravan the latest Unicorns benefit from enhanced styling both inside and out to give models a fresh new look. These combine with with an already comprehensive specification, accessible unladen weights and a competitive retail price to ensure Unicorn will remain at the top of the shopping list for any discerning caravan owner.

New for 2021, the Phoenix+ 420 is one of six models in the range and strikes the perfect balance between space, comfort and practicality. Featuring stylish new looks both inside and out as well as a host of additional practical design features, all supplied in a robust and durable four-season bodyshell, Phoenix+ is the perfect mobile base wherever you choose to go.

Commenting on the receipt of these coveted awards Bailey of Bristol Managing Director Nick Howard said:

“Naturally we are delighted that our caravan ranges have received this recognition in the Caravan and Motorhome Club Caravan Design Awards Buyers Guide 2021. Given the level of rigour involved in the judging of this particular competition it is particularly pleasing that two of our Alicanto Grande range and one from each of the Unicorn Black Edition and new Phoenix+ range were awarded five-stars”.

“The fact that models from all of our five ranges have received award recognition is testimony to the amount of work that has gone into the strengthening our caravan portfolio as a whole over the past twelve months”, he added.

Display models from all five of our multi-award winning caravan ranges are available to view on Bailey Retailer forecourts now. For the latest Bailey news you can follow us on Facebook @Baileycaravansandmotorhomes, Twitter @BaileyofBristol or Instagram @baileyofbristol.
