Bailey of Bristol has launched a sub-six metre coachbuilt as part of its range of motorhomes for 2014. Called the Approach Compact, the new model sits alongside the five-strong Approach Autograph range launched by Bailey in July of this year.

The Approach Compact 520 is a two-berth end-bedroom, front lounge, with a central kitchen and washroom plus a raised rear fixed double bed with garage storage underneath. The Approach Compact 540 is a three-berth with a full width end washroom, a central kitchen and an L-shaped front lounge with a drop down double bed.

Measuring 5.99m long, 2.15m wide and offering up to 2.05m headroom, Bailey says the Compact’s main raison d’être is the promise of the “practical advantages of a panel van conversion, such as ease of use and lower running costs, but with the design flexibility and extra interior space found in a coachbuilt.”
