Bailey Approach motorhome range passes Euro safety tests

The Approach SE was launched in October at the Birmingham NEC

The new motorhome range from Bailey Caravans has won acclaim for its safety standards, after passing the strict European tests needed to achieve EC Vehicle Type Approval.

Fans of motorhomes will now be able to get behind the wheel of one of Bailey’s Approach SE vehicles with complete confidence after it was deemed to comply with the most stringent of regulations.

Conformity of Production systems also received verification – this ensures that all models produced by Bailey will comply with the European legislation.

This initiative works in conjunction with the National Caravan Council certification scheme, which ensures that all caravans and motorhomes comply with legislation, standards, and health and safety codes of practice.

Following Bailey’s own strict testing procedure, the company slightly tweaked the new tourer however.

While its patented Alu-Tech bodyshell performed well in the examination, it has since been slightly modified, with Bailey re-designing the floor, furniture and under-locker lighting after the tests identified some room for improvement.

The Bailey Approach SE has been nominated for the CaravanTimes 2011 Innovation Award. To vote for your favourite tourer, caravan park and dealer, and be entered into our prize draw to win an Amazon Kindle, click here.
