Bailey Approach Advance 2017


The Bailey Approach Advance motorhome range has been developed specifically to cater for the first time motorhome buyer, the vehicles are light weight, low profile and lower cost than many others on the market. The entire range of models are manufactured using Bailey’s patented Alu-Tech bodyshell, on top of which is a GRP outer skin for extra durability, giving you the ability to holiday all year round due to the market leading thermal insulation. This is married to a fully-specified Peugeot Boxer Euro 5 cab, powered by a 2.2 Hdi 130 bhp engine complete with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and a new ultra-low profile lightweight AL-KO AMC chassis to provide the very best in on-the-road performance. With great looks inside and out in addition to a level of specification not normally found in a motorhome in this price bracket, the Bailey Approach Advance really does offer something genuinely different for those people thinking of owning a new motorhome for the first time.
