The 2016 Bailey Pegasus Series 4 Palermo is a high spec, luxury caravan with a very desirable and spacious layout featuring twin bunk beds, a side dinette and large end washroom in a five-berth tourer that rides on a smooth-towing twin axle. This layout is very popular with families because it offers a spacious separate bedroom area for the children, giving them plenty of space to eat and sleep This Palermo is a one owner from new caravan which has only had light and occasional use.
This particular Palermo does not have the usual manufacturers warranty (due to servicing timescale) and is therefore priced below typical market value. However, it is in excellent condition and will be serviced and damp-checked prior to sale, providing real piece of mind that everything is as it should be, for a new owner. It also comes with extras including an upholstery upgrade, an Isabella Commodore awning, 3 metre carpet, 85A/hr leisure battery, gas bottle Aqua Roll, Wastemaster and 2 wheel clamps.
Bailey's 2016 Pegasus range continued to embody Bailey's philosphy of combining superior performance with award-winning design and value for money. The result was Bailey's next generation of Pegasus models, which Bailey stated "took caravan design to the next level in terms of practicality and desirability."
The Pegasus range is built using Bailey’s Alu-Tech system, which uses a structural interlocking aluminium extrusion framework with a five-part bonded exterior panel assembly. This technology removes the exterior fixing points and wooden framework which are danger points for water ingress on traditionally constructed caravans. The impact resistant, single sheet tough GRP-skinned walls and the combination of its Polar White sidewalls, white front and rear panels and striking blue graphics, resulting in a caravan which is attractive and thoroughly modern, whether pitched on a site or towed on the road. Grade 3 thermal insulation gives the owner the ability to genuinely use the caravan year round.
Externally, the front and rear panels share the up to date Bailey design features, incorporating the vertical skylight at the front and rounded sections where the panels meet the roof. Bailey says these substantially reduce drag and, therefore, improve fuel economy when being towed. The Pegasus is built on Al-Ko chassis and running gear and has been fitted with premium extras, including an AKS 3004 stabiliser, Al-Ko ATC Trailer Control, 14" alloy wheels, and exterior 230v socket and wind-down spare wheel carrier. For the Pegasus, Bailey chose to relocate the gas locker from the front of the tourer to the offside, thereby reducing the noseweight and improving towing stability. The handbrake is gas-assisted and the A-frame fairing has step-on pads to make for easier cleaning of the window and the panels above it. With regard to the corner steadies, there is a clear groove in the sills to access the winding nuts of the front steadies, and the rear ones are tucked beneath the moulded bumper.
A Hartel 2 piece door leads to the attractive and high-spec interior. At the front, two double glazed windows sit either side of a double-glazed vertical front window which, combined wih an opening curved sunroof and a Heki rooflight, ensures that the lounge is bright, airy and well ventilated at all times. The styling throughout the Pegasus is pleasant and modern. A deep, full-width shelf beneath the front window conceals a slide-out occasional table and storage drawers. The Pegasus is fitted with overhead lockers in Mendip Ash, with dual-finish Italian design doors and chrome fittings. The two bench seats feature multi-layered foam filling for enhanced comfort when sitting or sleeping and are upholstered in attractive Richmond fabric with coordinated curtain and scatter cushions. Both sofa backrests have a backboard to separate them from the GRP interior walls and thereby reduce the likelihood of condensation building up in cold weather. At night, the seats can be made into a large double using the 'easy-glide' slat system. In the lounge, there are heating vents and one 230V socket fitted in opposite seat boxes. For mealtimes, a freestanding dining table has its own dedicated storage space in the wardrobe, and four adults can enjoy a comfortable meal around the table. The lounge features a radio/CD/MP3 player with aux socket.
The lighting provided in the lounge comprises a mixture of ambient lighting, LED feature and pelmet lights, and reading lights beneath the overhead lockers which illuminate the living space very well. All the windows have Remis pleated blinds and flyscreens as standar. The stable-type door has a full fly screen with a waste bin on the lower half. Heating comes courtesy of Truma’s dual-fuel Combi heater, operated via Bailey's CP+ control panel, which features an easy to use rotary knob and digital display.
Moving back through the Pegasus, the kitchen is very well-appointed. Circular LED spotlights illuminate the galley and there are additonal LEDs under the pelmets. The worksurface is a good size and features an extra fold out work-top; there a large cupboard beneath the worktop, and another cupboard beneath the combined oven and grill. The kitchen features a circular stainless-steel sink with chrome mixer tap, washing up bowl, drainer, chopping board, and dual fuel three-burner gas hob with 800w hotplate is on the right. The microwave fitted in the Pegasus is a stainless steel 800w model set at eye level. The domestic-style Thetford Caprice combined oven and grill ensures meals can be prepared as quickly and efficiently as at home. A new design Dometic 133-litre tower fridge/freezer completes the kitchen, and is faced with a panel to match the rest of the caravan’s décor. There are also two mains electric sockets tucked just beneath the overhead lockers.
At the very back of the Pegasus, a domestic-style door, featuring a locking handle, leads to the family-sized washroom. A small clear window and rooflight take care of ventilation. The swivelling Thetford c-260 toilet has an electric flush, and the two lights are operated by a pull cord just inside the door. There is a washbasin with chrome finish mixer tap, set into a vanity unit, and a wardrobe for clothes storage. The shower is generously sized and comes with an Ecocamel showerhead fixed in a high-level bracket. The shower has a folding, rigid partition door, and is fully-lined with GRP. The shower tray has a single plug drain, and a vent overhead. The Truma dual fuel combi water heater and heated blown air heating, ensures hot water on demand and combined with grade 3 thermal insulation ensures this caravan can be used year round, in perfect comfort. The control panel is simple, clear and user friendly.
Further back, the bedroom, which can be separated from the rest of the caravan for privacy, features twin fixed bunks, with the bottom one incorporating a bed frame which lifts up on gas struts to access a large storage space beneath. These bunks are perfect for children and young teens but the cleaver Palermo layout also has a dinette, situated opposite the bunks, which by day provides a separate eating and living area, but at night converts into a single bed for an additional berth, which is suitable for adults.
