Caravanning in winter has never been more popular, with caravanners beginning to see their tourer as an all-season vehicle.

One of the key reasons for this is modern heating systems that efficiently keep caravans warm and comfortable, even in terrible weather.

For their next caravan Bailey of Bristol is aiming to make caravanning more comfortable by including the Whale heating system in their brand new Pegasus GT65.

In this video, we meet up with Nick Howard who explains why the company has decided to team up with Whale to heat this new model - describing the benefits of the under-floor system installed in all models of the range.

The new I Van touch control unit is shown along with the Whale water heater that supplies a large amount of water in a quick time, perfect for when you come in after a cold day out.

He also revealed how seriously they are taking the heating capabilities of the tourer - explaining that they are testing it in a cold chamber to ensure it is properly insulated.
