Designed for people who know where they are going – the Bailey Retreat is a new kind of leisure vehicle. Introduced to cater for the growing number of people who do not tour with their caravan but prefer to site it in one place throughout the year.Whilst it is possible to use existing Bailey caravans in this way, they are built primarily as touring vehicles and consequently certain elements of the design will be not be ideally suited for this purpose.
A Retreat Leisure Home, on the other hand, has been developed specifically for this type of holiday with emphasis given to the features required for extended use in a single location. It offers the bestof both worlds in that it can provide you with the permanency of a holiday home whilst at the same time giving you the flexibility of a touring caravan, allowing you to re-locate to an alternative location should you so wish. It is a leisure vehicle which will appeal to both new and existing caravanners by providing them with a convenient and cost-effective way of acquiring their own place in the country.
Models are constructed using the same high performance Alu-Tech bodyshell featured in other Bailey ranges which is insulated to Grade III classification standard, allowing you to holiday all year round, and are supplied with an extended bodyshell integrity guarantee* to provide you with long term peace of mind. An impact resistant GRP outer skin provides extra durability whilst a re-inforced floor and a heavy duty AL-KO chassis ensure that a Bailey Retreat is built to last.
The most obvious difference between a Retreat and atraditional caravan is the size. As it is not designed to be towed by the owner, the weight of the vehicle is no longer a key consideration. This therefore gives us the opportunity to build a larger caravan, which has an internal length of 7.29m (23’11”) and an internal width of 2.32m (7’8”), with over 25% of more interior floorspace than a standard twin axle tourer.Initially available in a choice of two layouts, the four berth Willow and six-berth Sycamore, both of which feature bespoke floor plans made possible by this extra space.
Key Features include:
- Beautifully designed open plan living and dining areas, including a wrap round sofa in the front lounge with domestic standard ‘Sherwood’ soft furnishings.
- Well appointed kitchens equipped with the latest appliances including a dual fuel hob including an electric hot plate, a stainless steel 700 watt microwave oven and a Dometic 117 litre fridge freezer.
- Cleverly designed washrooms featuring a large circular shower cubicle and a host of practical items most notably the Thetford C-260 ceramic bowl cassette toilet, washroom sink, linen basket and heated towel rails.
- Luxury end bedroom suites containing a pocket sprung mattress double bed dressed with an optional co-ordinating bedding set
