company news / events / new caravans / motorhomes
We’re holding an open weekend from Friday 6th - Monday 9th October at our Colden Common showroom to showcase the new 2024 caravan ranges from Bailey and Swift!
The 2024 ranges were officially launched this month and we’ve been taking delivery of a range of models over the past few weeks to ensure that we have a good selection on-site for you to explore.
Bailey and Swift are two of the leading caravan manufacturers in the UK and we’re an approved dealership for both, so you can rest assured that we really know our stuff and that we’re well-placed to advise you on which range and model may best suit your lifestyle.
We’ll be open 9am - 5pm on the Friday, Saturday and Monday, and 10am - 4pm on the Sunday. The aim of the weekend is to give you the chance to have a good look around the models, see what you like and don’t like and help you towards making a decision on what model to go for.
Our friendly and knowledgeable sales team will be on hand to walk you round vehicles if you wish, go through the options and help you weigh up the pros and cons of different models.
If you order a new caravan at the event you’ll be getting in early in the season, which means you’ll take delivery of your new caravan in good time to enjoy it throughout 2024! And what's more, we're giving away the first 3 years' worth of servicing on all new 2024 Bailey and Swift caravans free of charge - that’s a saving of up to £1,035!
What’s new for Bailey?
Bailey has given the Pegasus Grande and the Phoenix ranges a major overhaul, renaming them “GT75” to celebrate Bailey’s 75th anniversary.
Pegasus Grande GT75
The Pegasus Grande GT75 is a refresh of Bailey’s best-selling 8ft range, and offers four spacious four-berth layouts to choose from, with a further two family layouts being launched in February. Available in both single and twin axle options, all models now boast king-size island beds to ensure complete comfort.
The single-axle Portofino is a new addition for 2024, and like the existing twin-axle Messina layout, features a parallel seat front lounge, mid kitchen and washroom and a rear island bed. Both models benefit from a new rear through-boot which provides exterior access to the invaluable space under the bed.
The single-axle Brindisi and twin-axle Bologna layouts have also been significantly enhanced with the introduction of a spacious new L-shaped front lounge, which converts to a comfy double. The kitchen is in the middle and leads on to a transverse island bed, with washroom to the rear. The Bologna received a stylish makeover with the introduction of twin low-level bedside cabinets and a floor-to-ceiling corner wardrobe to provide additional storage.
The new Phoenix GT75 seamlessly combines space, comfort and affordability to deliver a caravan to suit parties of all sizes. The 2024 range boasts stylish new looks both inside and out as well as a host of additional practical features.
These special anniversary models provide five of the most popular single-axle models from the current Phoenix range as well as the Phoenix GT75 762, a spacious twin-axle, 6-berth family model featuring two separate seating areas, fixed twin bunks and a full-width end washroom.
The five other models comprise:
Phoenix GT75 420: 2-berth with rear washroom
Phoenix GT75 440: 4-berth with French double bed and rear washroom
Phoenix GT75 642: 4-berth with twin single beds and rear washroom
Phoenix GT75 644: 4-berth transverse island double bed and rear washroom
Phoenix GT75 640: 4-berth with centre washroom and a double island bed to the rear
The Phoenix GT75 range has been visually enhanced with bold new anniversary graphics, and the interiors have benefitted from the introduction of new ‘Cashmere’ decorative finishes and ‘Warm grey marble’ worktop surfaces to complement the existing Bailey ’Light Oak’ furniture. Re-designed curved overhead locker doors with dual chrome profiles complete the new interior look.
The range has a number of new features including a centrally located media centre comprising a SONOS portable speaker with integral storage, a smartphone wireless charging pad including two USB sockets and a dedicated TV point with 230v, 12v and aerial sockets.
What’s new for Swift?
Swift have given their models a refresh for 2024 but retained their popular Sprite, Challenger and Elegance ranges.
The Elegance Grande range offers three 8ft-wide, four-berth models, each offering very different layout options. The Elegance is all about luxury and premium quality, from the glamorous Brisa ULTRALEATHER upholstery scheme to the spa-like washroom and full height padded headboards. Other key features include an on-board fresh water tank, a dimmable LED lighting system, new underfloor heating and two flexible lightweight solar panels (200w).
All three models are twin axle and have front lounges that convert to double beds and a kitchen in the middle of the van. The 835’s kitchen leads through to the washroom, with a transverse bed at the rear. The 845 has a transverse double bed and a rear washroom, and the 850’s kitchen leads onto a mid washroom with an island bed to the rear.
Challenger Grande SE
The Challenger Grande SE range offers five 8ft-wide models, four of which are four-berth, and the 670, which is sixth-berth. It’s ideal for families with spacious interiors, bigger beds and additional storage. The different models all have front lounges that convert into doubles for sleeping, mid kitchens, and all except the 580 have mid washrooms too. The beds in all the four-berths are island doubles, whilst the 670 has a French bed on one side and bunk beds on the other.
Key features include a lightweight flexible solar panel, a boutique hotel-style washroom, an internal water tank (twin axles only), folding garment rail in shower (model specific), a Truma mains water line, mirrors on wardrobe door (model specific) and bluetooth and DAB radio as standard.
The Sprite offers great value for money as well as top quality. The light, airy interior has three opening front windows, stylish Langholme soft furnishings and low energy LED lighting throughout, with features including the Truma blown air heating system, Duvalay Duvalite Apollo Luxe mattresses and an upgraded Dometic Series 10 fridge. Sprite’s seven models cater for 2-6 people and offer a range of layouts including a choice of mid, side or rear washrooms and French, island, transverse or bunk bed options.
