LIGHTWEIGHT AUSSIE CARAVANS
With fuel prices only set to rise and cars becoming increasingly lighter and smaller, lightweight caravans just make sense. They give you access to a much wider range of tow vehicles and not only will they cost you less to take on your travels, they are much safer to tow.
Bailey Australia is the industry leader in lightweight technology and our locally designed and built Rangefinder caravans weigh up to 700kg less, depending on the model comparison, than other local caravans of similar size and equipment.
The secret is our patented five-part Alu-Tech construction that employs impact resistant fibreglass body panels that are bonded and bolted to a unique interlocking aluminium external frame and fixed internally to a very rigid 44mm thick floor. Attached to it is an Australian-designed and robotically-welded DuraGal steel chassis, combining to create a caravan of unrivalled strength yet light in weight, whilst also meeting the highest Grade III thermal insulation standards.
All Rangefinder caravans carry Bailey Australia’s industry leading 10-year water ingress warranty extending to any structural degradation to the bodyshell that arises as a result of water ingress through permanently sealed seams or joints.
Bailey Australia is the first European manufacturer to undertake local caravan production in Australia, bringing the latest construction techniques, processes and cutting-edge design and technology to our travellers.
The process begins with an understanding of Australian caravanning needs, including feedback from current Bailey caravan owners, as well as understanding the preference of the Australian caravanning public for specific interior layouts. Space, usability, comfort and liveability are key considerations in every step of the process.
Rangefinders are built from the inside out, with local CNC-cut furniture securely fixed in place before being bonded and fastened to the caravan walls and ceiling panels to create an immensely strong overall body structure. Australian designed and sourced chassis, furniture, windows and doors, kitchen, bathroom and laundry appliances are all chosen for their suitability for our conditions and their local service and support.
The components of Bailey’s patented Alu-Tech bodyshell construction system are manufactured at Bailey of Bristol and then shipped to Australia for building onto our locally-designed and manufactured DuraGal steel chassis. This process gives Rangefinder buyers access to the precision manufacturing processes of Britain’s top-selling caravan maker.
