An all-new Bailey caravan is set to be added to its fleet of luxury tourers next year, the Bristol-based manufacturer has revealed.

Following in the footsteps of its new Pegasus Rimini model, Bailey Caravans has unveiled that the Unicorn Cadiz will hit the market in the new year.

With the Rimini's unique full-length fixed single beds proving very popular with buyers at this year's Motorhome & Caravan Show, the Cadiz will become the second Bailey model to feature this popular lay-out.

With the Rimini coming second only to Bailey's trademark Unicorn Valencia model in the Show's best-seller list, the caravan maker has high hopes for the new Cadiz.

The Cadiz is now set to makes it public debut at the Motorhome Caravan and Camping Show at the Excel Centre in London on Tuesday February 14th, before display models make the trip to retailer forecourts across the country during the following weeks.

In a statement Bailey revealed: "Given [the Rimini's] popularity there was an instant desire to see this layout replicated in the flagship Unicorn range and Bailey has responded quickly to public reaction with the introduction of the Cadiz."

Tough competition

This is not the only luxury caravan on the market to offer this layout. The Cadiz will go head-to-head with the Swift Conqueror 565, the Sterling Elite Opal, the Elddis Crusader Shamal and the Lunar Clubman SB.

However, Bailey has put a new twist on this established configuration by shifting the wardrobe into the ensuite end-washroom, creating a more spacious, open-plan feel for the caravan which doesn't usually happen in a caravan with this kind of layout.

Bailey's Unicorn Cadiz also features the same construction methods of the other caravans in the range, built using its advanced Alu-Tech bodyshell which is insulated to the Grade III classification, thus allowing its owner four-seasons touring. It is also offered with a ten-year fully comprehensive body shell integrity guarantee.

With many exclusive new design features, Bailey Unicorn buyers get the option of choosing from two different upholstery and soft furnishing options, while the interior also boasts Bailey's classic 'Walnut' furniture finish.

This news comes after Bailey recently announced that it is investing £250,000 in new technology at its factory in Bristol, which will enable it to expand production of its Alu-Tech tourers.
