One of the biggest draws at next week's NCC Motorhome, Caravan and Camping Show, the brand new Bailey Retreat is the most hotly-anticipated new launch of 2012 so far.

Thanks to its super-large bodyshell, this so-called 'leisure home' is a cut above the rest in terms of interior space and luxury specification.

CaravanTimes has been to Bristol to take a behind-the-scenes look at this exciting new model, which represents a completely new type of caravanning.

The Bailey Retreat will be publically unveiled at the Excel Centre as part of the London caravan show, which runs from February 14th to 19th.
