Bailey’s popular prestige range, the Unicorn, is now in its third generation and sixth year. Gone are the over-fussy front mouldings and cream sidewalls of previous generations, to be replaced by a ‘Polar White’ bodyshell, flush-fit bumpers, integral grabhandles and a more aerodynamic shape at the rear. The smart sidewall graphics in red, black and grey incorporate a ‘B’ and the front panel has a slim red ‘smile’; view that with the vertical central window (the nose) and windows (the eyes) either side, and you have a van with a happy ‘face’.

The exterior tweaks are a welcome improvement. As with all Bailey models, the four-season range is built using Alu-Tech construction. Other developments to the Unicorn include an upgraded Alde central heating system with a more economical boiler, a user-friendly digital control panel and an additional washroom radiator. Security has improved, too, with a Tracker Retrieve Stolen Vehicle Recovery System, and there’s a new Truma 100-watt solar panel to give your battery a boost. The Vigo has a transverse island bed and end washroom. It’s looking good on paper, but what is it like in the metal? And to see other Bailey caravans for sale, click here.
