We are no strangers to the third generation of Bailey’s flagship line-up of Unicorn caravans, having already reviewed the Valencia, Cadiz and Seville. So, our curiosity was piqued when the Bristol firm reported that the three-berth Madrid caravan is one of its top sellers. 

Three-berth? Yes, for 2015 Bailey is so confident that this caravan is meant for couples that the fold-out bunk that compromised dinette space before is now only available as an option. 

For the 2015 Unicorn, Bailey has rationalised production by making all models, except the compact two-berth Seville, with the same body dimensions. That means for 2015 the Madrid is considerably longer than it was in 2014 and is now one of the most spacious couples’ caravans you’ll find. You could just about play a game of tennis in the third generation of the Madrid. 

It’s well specified, too, with Alde 3020 programmable wet central heating, a 100W solar panel and an external gas point. It also has a full complement of Al-Ko goodies, including shock absorbers, a wheel lock and an ATC anti-snaking device.
