One industry that was hit the hardest in this year with the Coronavirus pandemic is, undoubtedly, the tourism industry. Thankfully, things have slowly started to settle down, and lockdown restrictions have eased. 

Caravan parks are opening up while maintaining social distancing protocols, and this is good news for a lot of people. 

If you too, have been considering jumping onboard and escaping, a Bailey of Bristol 5 Berth caravan could be an excellent choice. Read on to discover everything you need to know about it, and lots more! 

Why Bailey of Bristol?

With over 70 years of being in operation, Bailey of Bristol has been pushing the boundaries of engineering and bringing about innovation in everything they create. Known for employing rigorous testing to ensure that their vehicles perform best when they hit the road, Bailey goes to great lengths to ensure every aspect of their design is thoroughly evaluated before they go on sale

Plus, they also have excellent financing systems in place, and also offer many pre-owned motorhomes and caravans for you to pick from, especially if you’re dipping your toes into it for the first time. 

And that’s not all. They have a top-notch support team in place to help you out with everything you might need, it just doesn’t get better than that.

Why 5 Berth Caravans?

Bailey of Bristol’s 5 berth Phoenix+ 650 caravan has been specifically designed with small families in mind. With a strategically constructed bunk bed for children, ‘a mini dining area that transforms at night to a single bed and a full-width end washroom, it’s a great layout to opt for if you have 2-3 children, and are looking to take a trip within the UK anytime soon. 

Bailey’s current 5 berth layout can be found in their Phoenix+ range with the Phoenix+ 650 model, which is comfortable for a family of two adults and up to three children to go holidaying in. And if you want to look at other layouts you can visit the Bailey of Bristol website and use their Virtual Showroom to take a 360° tour of any of their caravans or motorhomes.

What I personally love about the 5 berth Phoenix+ 650 from Bailey of Bristol – and all their models in the current ranges – is the fact that they are built with
Alu-Tech construction, which makes them more durable and robust than practically any other caravan out there. There are also fewer joints and external fixings, and better thermal performance, all of that for literally no increase in the cost and weight.
