This is the third generation of Bailey’s mid-market range and benefits from a decent make-over with a new exterior and equipment. Bailey used its first Pegasus range to launch its Alu-Tech bodyshell construction in 2009, a method that gave the van a small front locker with room only for the gas bottles. An on-board water tank supplemented the Aquaroll, and big features were safety and security with the Al-Ko ATC anti-snaking system and AKS stabiliser, plus the Tracker Monitor Stolen Vehicle Recovery System.

Series II was given more showroom appeal following the successful launch of the top of the range Unicorn. The interiors were made more inviting, but kit levels were reduced, reflected in the cheaper price. The Pegasus Series II Ancona took the Best Caravan for Large Families gong in our 2012 Tourer of the Year Awards, but it was the new, fixed-single-bed Rimini with rear washroom that became a range best-seller.

The GT65 models have taken more styling points from the Unicorn range, while 5cm shaved off the Pegasus’s width has reduced the weight so that all the single-axle models come in at under 1500kg MTPLM. This will broaden the range of cars able to tow them.

Equipment levels have been improved, with Bailey extending its use of Michelin-branded tyres from the Unicorn to the Pegasus with alloy wheel security locking nuts and a portable wheel lock. It also has a wind-down, underfloor spare wheel carrier for easier access.
