Bigger has certainly proved to be better following the arrival of the Bailey Alicanto Grande range this autumn. Models from this ‘Luxurious and limitless’ range have topped the Bailey best-sellers list since their introduction, appealing to customers either as a touring or seasonal use vehicle.
Following this overwhelmingly positive public reaction, Bailey will be adding a fourth 8ft wide layout to the range, the 4-berth twin axle Alicanto Grande Faro, which will debut at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show 2020 next month. The Faro is a new-to-Bailey layout which features a transverse rear double island bed and a central nearside ensuite washroom that sits opposite a well-appointed dressing area. Moving further forward, into the living area, you find the signature Alicanto offside L-shaped kitchen and a large parallel seat front lounge which converts into either twin singles or a large double bed at night.

Outside ‘Polar white’ GRP skinned body shell panels are perfectly complimented by a ‘Metallic Bronze’ co-ordinating graphics scheme, which together with new Diamond Cut style TUV tested alloy wheels and the signature Bailey ‘room with a view’ vertical front skylight announce that Alicanto owners travel and arrive in style. In addition to looking good, the Faro also comes with a host of practical exterior features including a Truma 100 watt solar panel, an external satellite connection, a gas BBQ point and a 230v.
As with all Bailey leisure vehicles, models are built using our patented Alu-Tech construction technology, cloaked in a GRP outer skin, making them more robust and more durable, yet lighter than those manufactured using conventional methods, offering greater protection against the elements to keep you comfortable, safe and secure all year round. To date approaching 65,000 Bailey leisure vehicles have been built with this ground-breaking technology, and are currently being used and enjoyed around the world.
To ensure that this eye-catching investment remains safe on the road and secure on site it is fitted with the all latest safety and security equipment, including the AL-KO ATC Trailer Control System, TyrePal TPMS, AL-KO Secure wheel lock (two on twin axle models), and a TRACKER Monitor Stolen Vehicle Recovery System with an integral intruder alarm, all as standard specification.
Alicanto models are fitted with a fully specified Alde programmable radiator heating system which allows you to holiday no matter the time of year. Combined with the market-leading thermal characteristics of the Alu-Tech body shell, this makes the Alicanto Grande a genuine all-weather vehicle, a fact confirmed with the achievement of the highest rating for thermal performance (Grade III Classification of EN1656-I) in rigorous cold chamber testing.
Inside, spacious interiors are beautifully showcased with new ‘Mendip Ash’ furniture featuring new curved dual finish Italian design overhead locker doors with black chrome handles. Upgraded LED task and mood lighting throughout gives Alicanto that unmistakable touch of class.
Lounging comfort is guaranteed by new fully sprung base cushions and curved corner backrests with headrests, in a choice of either standard ‘Farringdon’ or optional ‘Portobello’ soft furnishings. The same is true in the bedrooms where larger beds with new memory foam topped mattresses promise a good night’s rest.
Feature kitchens provide up to 25% more work surface plus 30% more cupboard storage capacity thanks to their new L-shaped design. New features such as a large circular sink with concealed fixings, plus Perspex splashbacks and glass splashguards, are both stylish and practical. The headline act in a very impressive list of branded kitchen appliances, is the new Dometic 10-series 153 litre electronic fridge freezer with a universal handed door mechanism.
Commenting on the expansion of the Alicanto Grande range Bailey Managing Director Nick Howard said:
“The Alicanto Grande is our most luxurious caravan range yet. With everything you need to get the most out of every holiday, it’s been designed and built with our customers’ needs in mind, further establishing our place as The Nation’s Favourite. Models provide more space, more style, more comfort and more practicality, and give people more reason than ever to Go Bailey!”
“The only thing not included is the view,” he added.
