This month we bring you a sneak peak of the 2011 Bailey Pegasus II, the second generation of the award-winning Pegasus range, and also brief news of a new entry level Bailey caravan. Both models are to be launched at the 2011 Boat and Caravan in February at the NEC.
At the time of writing, information was limited but these new models are built to the same exacting standards as their predecessors using the technologically pioneering
Alu-Tech body shell, and insulated to Thermal Grade III classification of EN 1645-I verified by rigorous testing methods.
The exciting new Pegasus II range will be available in a choice of five layouts with a choice of two interior soft furnishing schemes including bolster and scatter cushions. Co-ordinating bed linen will be available as an optional purchase, to complete the ultimate look of style, comfort and luxury.
The model line up comprises:-

Prices are to be confirmed but we are told that if you subtract £1,000 from the current Pegasus 534 price of £17,255.00 (the Pegasus II Verona is the equivalent model) you will have an anticipated price. i.e. £16, 255.00. That includes VAT @ 20% but excludes the delivery charge.
Full product information will be available on a new micro site at www.baileypegasus-s2.co.uk (site goes live 18th February 2011)
The Pegasus II range will be shown to the public for the first time on Tuesday 22nd February on stand 5130 and 5120 in Hall 5 at the Boat and Caravan Show to be held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham from 22nd to 27th February.
We can also tell you that a new range of interesting entry level Alu-Tech models will also be launched at the show; they could even be described as “revolutionary” so watch this space!
Display models of both ranges will be on dealer forecourts following the show.
