As caravan enthusiasts and lovers of travel, it wasn’t a difficult choice when deciding whether or not to head to Germany for the Caravan Salon at Düsseldorf – The largest trade fair for caravans and motorhomes in the world! Having heard a lot about the scale of the show we couldn’t wait to get stuck in and see what the rest of Europe has to offer.
When we received the invitation from Elddis to the launch of their 2020 line up of vehicles it was an opportunity we couldn’t turn down, and we were excited to see what they had in store for next year!
Not one exciting new range of caravans from Bailey, but two! The Alicanto Grande and a surprise Discovery.

In late October we were lucky enough to try out a brand new Bailey Phoenix, here’s what we got up to…
Pitched up at chapel lane, snacks packed, lists made, map revised… it was that time of year again- The Motorhome and Caravan show at the NEC!
After having a great time at the launch of the Bailey Phoenix we were thrilled and honoured to receive another invite in the post from Bailey. This time it was to the launch of the brand new Pegasus Grande range. We couldn’t wait to see it!
As you all know we have a Bailey caravan and are caravan enthusiasts in general. So when we received an invitation from Bailey themselves to attend the press launch of their brand new caravan range- the Phoenix- it was an offer we couldn’t turn down.
