The Amalfi is one of two new models added to Bailey’s 75th birthday celebration range. The Bailey Pegasus Grande GT75 Amalfi has a layout that hasn’t featured in the brand’s line-up for years, with an offside rear-corner bed next to a pair of bunks.

Pitch and set-up

Unlike the Bailey Pegasus Grande GT75 Ancona, the Amalfi is a twin-axle, as you would hope, because it is a six berth caravan and because of the additional payload that having so many on board usually entails.

For this reason, it is good to see that, again unlike the Ancona, the corner steadies here are heavy duty. You also get ATC and an AKS 3004 stabiliser as standard to make things smooth on the road in these Bailey caravans.

Lounge in the Bailey Pegasus Grande GT75 Amalfi

The elegant lounge feels like somewhere you would want to spend time in, thanks to the large windows and the warm colour of the upholstery. Along with the ambient light behind the overhead lockers, there are two LEDs in the housing for the front central window and three spotlights to keep things bright at night.

A small storage unit to the right of the door houses a Sonos Bluetooth speaker, while the bracket above this would be an ideal place for one of the best caravan TVs to go, as it would be visible to most people in the lounge.

The size of both the folding table and the lounge means six people could easily dine in comfort here, a requirement for those looking for the best family caravans. It is worth bearing in mind, however, that this is the only area for sitting – anyone wanting to relax while others were eating would probably have to move to the double bed at the rear of the van.

Kitchen in the Bailey Pegasus Grande GT75 Amalfi

There is permanent workspace to the left of the large round sink in this side kitchen. It’s helpfully located next to two sockets, with enough space to use even if you bring along a low-wattage kettle and a caravan toaster.

More space, if needed, is provided by the wooden cover on the four-burner dual-fuel hob. The area is well lit by a large window, although some light would be blocked out once you raise that cover. The hob sits above a separate oven and grill. There is a flatbed microwave beside the overhead cupboards, and a slimline fridge opposite.

Washroom in the Bailey Pegasus Grande GT75 Amalfi

It’s harder to disguise the wheel arch in a twin-axle, so it is no surprise that the arch here protrudes into the shower cubicle on the nearside of the washroom. But there’s plenty of headroom, and a rooflight.

The wheel arch comes into the offside main washroom, too, but it is covered up and could serve as a shelf. The square basin is a good size, with a well-lit mirror. The room is finished off with a rooflight, two hooks and a toilet roll holder.

Beds in the Bailey Pegasus Grande GT75 Amalfi

This layout, while offering six comfortable beds, does present something of a dilemma.

We’d imagine parents would want to sleep in the double bed in the rear. But if you have four children you would need to give up the lounge, and any chance of some time away from the kids in the evening.

However, if you choose to sleep in the lounge, you are in effect opting for the second best double. And would older children really be happy to have to share a bed? The lounge settees can easily be made up into singles suitable for anyone up to 1.91m tall.

So this layout is perhaps best suited for those with two children.

The different bed areas in the rear are individually curtained off and well kitted out, too. The double comes with two spotlights, both with USBs and shelves. Each bunk has its own spotlight (but no USB), window and bookshelf.

Storage in the Bailey Pegasus Grande GT75 Amalfi

There is great potential for clothes storage in this caravan, because there are two wardrobes. The one between the beds at the back has drawers underneath it, while the other is fitted with some internal shelving.

The nearside underseat area in the front is externally accessible and clear. The offside one does hold the heater, but an internal flap gives access to the clear area. There are large overhead lockers and corner shelves here, too, and a locker under the central chest.

There is a huge clear area under the rear double, and another below the bottom bunk. Both are externally accessible, and the double stays up of its own accord. There are two lockers over it and a shelf in between.

The kitchen includes a double overhead cupboard next to the microwave, along with a double cupboard under the worktop. The pan locker below the oven is only adequate, but you could also use the cupboard by the door or even the bottom of the wardrobe.

The washroom has an excellent cupboard underneath the handbasin and a shallow cupboard above the toilet.

Alternatives to consider

Another six-berth from Bailey was added to the Phoenix range to celebrate the brand’s 75th anniversary, the Bailey Phoenix GT75 762 – this tourer comes with a family-friendly and adaptable layout.

Another model to consider is the 2023 Adria Altea 622DK Avon, an entry-level tourer that has an upmarket feel to it, both inside and out.
