Bailey Caravans has added to its Unicorn Series II range of luxury caravans with a new layout, known as the Cartagena.

As with all the other models in the Bailey Unicorn Series II collection, the Cartagena is named after a Spanish city, but what makes it different is the transverse island bed layout in the rear of this twin-axle van.

Island beds are particularly popular among couples who don't want to clamber over each other in order to get up in the middle of the night, and the transverse island bed option allows for a full-width washroom to be fitted to the rear.

Elsewhere, the specification remains exactly the same as in the rest of the Unicorn II range, with a fully-equipped kitchenette and a convertible double bed in the front lounge area.

This layout is new to Bailey, but it will come into stiff competition with the likes of the Swift Conqueror 645 and the Lunar Delta TI.

Prices and MTPLM weights are yet to be confirmed, but should come in at around £22,000 and 1,650kg respectively.

To see the Bailey Unicorn II Cartagena for yourself, head along to the Birmingham NEC from 16 to 21 October, where the entire six-layout range will be on display together for the first time as part of the NCC Motorhome and Caravan Show.

Don't forget, you can win tickets to the show in this month's CaravanTimes reader giveaway by clicking here.
