When Bailey launched the Unicorn 12 years ago, the new range soon found favour, with many customers switching from the brand’s Pegasus to the upmarket Unicorn line-up.

Over the years, the range grew and by 2017, comprised 10 layouts, from the two-berth Seville to the big Cordoba.

The excellent spec included Alde heating, barbecue and exterior mains sockets, Status TV aerial and other goodies, such as an alarm and ATC.

The Bailey Unicorn Seville Series 4 also saw a fresh layout for the caravan, swapping the end washroom for an L-shaped kitchen, corner washroom and front dinette arrangement.

Model history

The Seville was included in the range from the start, although it was dropped for a time, before rejoining the line-up in 2018.

That means good examples of this very popular tourer for two can usually be found on most dealership forecourts.

Regular upgrades to the range provided a smart, contemporary interior, making it even more appealing to customers who are thinking of buying a used caravan.

The kitchen in the Seville proved to be a particular attraction for couples who mainly used site facilities.

Storage was another plus point in the new Unicorns, with plenty of locker capacity and cupboard space.

With a roof-mounted 100W solar panel to boost the battery (which incidentally is in the floor), charging can also be maintained while the caravan is not being used.

The TyrePal system was installed to monitor the van’s tyre pressures, while a tracker was also fitted to these models.

We found one Seville at £19,995 and others for up to £20,495. The model we review here was more expensive, but it did have a new mover fitted and it was also in superb condition.

Alternatives to a Bailey Unicorn Seville Series 4

Verdict on the Bailey Unicorn Seville Series 4

Quality is usually excellent in pre-owned examples of the Seville, and the one we saw was in great condition. The motor mover was a welcome extra.

In addition, the previous owners had clearly taken really good care of this Bailey caravan.

The Series 4 also provided plenty of excellent kit, which attracted many customers.

Remember, though, that there is no front gas locker in the Unicorn range – it is on the offside instead.

Side-access lockers will house smaller items, but that does eat into the underseat storage.

Carry out the usual checks, particularly for signs of damp, and you won’t go far wrong!
