The Bailey Pageant Series 7: A new era of style and sophistication
The Bailey Pageant Series 7: A new era of style and sophistication

Monday, 19, Jul 2010 12:41

The Bailey Caravans' Pageant series began life in 1982. Its first incarnation as a mid-market, lightweight design was initially priced between £3,583 and £3,989.

After year on year improvements, Bailey Caravans changed their marketing strategy in response to evolving market trends. In place of annual model updates, the company decided to overhaul an entire range at a time, moving away from the traditional 'model year' to create a 'Series' number. This development welcomed in the arrival of the Bailey Pageant Series 5 in 2004.

The benefits of improving ranges as a whole, meant more time could be spent developing more substantial upgrades. The most up-to-date range is currently the Bailey Pageant Series 7 launched in 2008 to include eight layouts, and a further two four berth models were introduced in 2009, the Pageant Ardennes and the Pageant Sancerre.

High Spec Finish

Bailey upped their game with the Pageant Series 7, updating interiors with a new level of style and sophistication. Italian designer locker doors and a 'Bailey Teak' furniture veneer give a high quality finish. The range comes with a choice of two upholstery schemes - the Standard Hilton upholstery or the alternative 'Savoy' scheme, both are made from premium grade Belgian upholstery.

All Bailey Pageant Series 7 models have an impressive 7'6" wide strong bonded construction body shell. The flat panel roof allows for better storage at the front and the rear of the 'van, and a larger floor space provides more internal space.

Packed with numerous home comforts, a 115 litre Dometic fridge and microwave come as standard, along with the Thetford C-250 cassette toilet and 18 litre wheeled holding tank. The entertainment system features a branded stereo and speaker system with MP3 player connectivity.

Energy saving 12v LED pelmet lighting feature along the length of the interior and new bold sweeping graphics brighten up the exterior. The introduction of the AL-KO ATC Trailer Control System has made Bailey Pageant Caravans some of the safest on the road.
