Craning the new Bailey Unicorn Vigo, weighing 1430kg, onto the rooftop required the expertise of highly-experienced crane operators and had required many months of planning. This included arranging temporary road closures and closely monitoring weather forecasts, as windy conditions could have made it too risky to lift the caravan that high.
Before being craned into the sky, the new Bailey Unicorn Vigo had been towed by a Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid from the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s Crystal Palace site to several iconic London landmarks, including Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and Big Ben.
“Craning the caravan onto a London rooftop has been a great way to celebrate an exceptionally busy and challenging year for us all.” said Nick Howard, Managing Director of Bailey of Bristol. “We love doing events like this to challenge people’s perceptions of caravans and caravan holidays. Previously, we’ve towed caravans across Australia, done a winter trip above the Arctic Circle to see Santa in Lapland, and seen 21 countries in 21 days on an epic road trip to Istanbul and back!”, added Nick.
The new Bailey Unicorn range has an unmissable new look for 2022 and an extensive array of enhancements. It offers seven layouts for up to four people with prices ranging from £26,799 to £30,999.
