Bailey to unveil first ever panel van conversion: Bailey Endeavour

Bailey Endeavour

Bailey is set to launch its range of first panel van campervan conversions this autumn.

The all-new Bailey Endeavour is based the 3.5 tonne ‘Chrome Blue’ Ford Transit, powered by a 2.0 litre 155 bhp engine with six-speed automatic gearbox.

The Bailey Endeavour B62 is a two-berth with central kitchen and washroom plus customisable rear lounge which can be used as single beds at night or convert into a double bed.

The Bailey Endeavour B64, meanwhile, is a four-berth with up to four travel seats, front lounge, which converts into either twin singles or a double bed at night plus rear kitchen and washroom.

An additional double bed on the B64 can be found in the pop top roof above front lounge, although access to the pop top is not possible if the double bed is made up below.

Bailey of Bristol Managing Director Nick Howard said: “Panel van conversions remain the fastest growing sector in the UK leisure vehicle market and consequently we feel that it is now the right time to expand our product offering and introduce the Bailey brand to a wider audience.

“Work on the commissioning of a separate new production line at our South Liberty Lane plant is approaching completion and we are looking forward to beginning manufacturing the first Endeavour models at the end of this year.”

Both models feature a fully specified cab with a host of features to enhance on-the-road comfort with fully adjustable driver and passenger Captain’s seats with dual arm rests, air conditioning and cruise control all included standard.

A full in-vehicle infotainment system, featuring a 12” touchscreen HD colour display, incorporating a DAB radio with Apple Carplay /Android Auto, satellite navigation, Bluetooth and USB connectivity also helps make your journey easier, whilst the factory-fit rear-view camera plus front and rear parking sensors will allow you to manoeuvre your vehicle with complete confidence.

The Bailey Endeavour is equipped with all the essentials required for the enjoyment of the great outdoors, most notably a Thule 3.5m wind out awning, whilst a Truma 100-watt flexible solar panel and a premium 92 ampere/hour leisure battery combine to provide the opportunity for genuine ‘off-grid’ holidays. In short, you’ll be totally self-sufficient.

Models are fitted with a Truma D4E Diesel Combi heating and hot water system.

This combined with a fully insulated bodyshell, featuring a 100mm thick bonded floor & 35mm thick bonded ceiling, makes Endeavour a genuine all-weather vehicle, a fact confirmed with the achievement of the highest rating for thermal performance (Grade III Classification of EN1646-I) in rigorous cold chamber testing.

Inside Endeavour really turns on the style with a combination of Bailey ‘Light Oak’, ‘Satin Cashmere’ and Anthracite furniture finishes, working in harmony with premium quality ‘Apollo’ soft furnishings and ‘Hazelnut’ drop in carpets, all beautifully showcased by the panoramic overcab sunroof which floods the living area with natural light, to create the perfect environment to return to after a day of adventures.

The sleek exterior disguises a spacious interior, featuring 1.96 metres of internal headroom, that includes everything you will need for anything from a weekend break to an extended holiday.

Fully equipped kitchens, include a Thetford 90 litre compressor refrigerator, a Thetford Triplex combination oven and grill with three burners, plus a separate circular sink with mixer tap.

Whilst cleverly designed wet rooms, featuring a space saving revolving tambour partition screen, contain a Thetford cassette toilet and an onboard shower.

As with all Bailey vehicles Endeavour models are pre-wired to facilitate the easy installation of the optional Avtex mobile wi-fi system.

It also feature four 230v sockets and four USB sockets, Status 570 telescopic digital TV aerial and wall mounted TV bracket, located to allow space for an optional 24” screen.

The new Endeavor panel van range will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the Motorhome and Caravan Show, NEC, Birmingham (Stand 19-25 Hall 19) Tuesday 17th October.

First thing you notice on the rear longe option is the bizarre shape of the end cushions, why? How do you rest your arm on that? Seems to me to be a little style over substance.
