HOT ON THE heels of the two new Unicorn layouts already announced, the prolific chaps at Bailey have managed to nail together another new model in time for the NEC show. The Rimini is another new fixed bed layout, this time into the Pegasus II range.

 

Under the Rimini

 

Rimini has twin-single beds at the rear of the caravan but is arranged differently to similar layouts from rivals. For example, the Swift Challenger 565 has twin-beds with a wardrobe at the foot of the nearside bed, adjacent to the door. Bailey has opted to install the wardrobe in the washroom and give the centre of the caravan more open aspect. The lounge appears to be a touch more spacious too, although you have to do without a centre chest.

 

Prices and weights will be announced at the NEC on 11th October but if you turned up with around £17000 and a car that can tow 1500kg, we'd suspect you wouldn't be far out.
