Mainly I like them. But not keen on the small gas locker, we keep the Sat Dish & Tripod in the at the moment. And why is the door Black, doesn't look right. How much room is there at the bottom of the Island bed when it's in the bed position ? Will have to go to the Dealers when they get some in stock. (and leave my wallet at home).
Baileys are making a big deal of the a 10 damp warranty, but in the warranty section of the Pegasus 'micro site' it says a 6 year standard damp warranty with an extra 4 years available at a cost.
Still, well done Baileys for trying to improve Caravan manufacture.
And well done Chris for the Videos.

Very interesting, it's good to see how this part of caravanning is moving on and I suspect others will follow some of the ideas. However I'm not suprised there was no wind tunnel testing, it looks like the wind resistence is not going to be its best asset and for me that slab fronted look does not appeal.
Good report Chris, I like that sort of article.

excellent report Chris I've seen this type of construction on the delivery containers we used to use at Norweb, they came under a lot of stresses keep being loaded and unloaded from the trucks by large fork lifts, I'm still to be convinced about the rest of the build quality after my experience trying to buy the Bailey 540/6 as previously reported on the forum.
I'll take a look at the dealers though and hope they have changed the quality inside the caravan.

Had a good look at this Alu tech system my Son noticed that the bolts used on the system must be to long as you should have only a little bit of thread past the nylock nut as not to cut to much thread into the nylon in the nut (yes my son is an engineer ) also no spring washers used as this would elimanate this extra tighten up service after 3 years at a cost of £350 something I think Bailey should look into no doubt that will be Pegasus & Olympus mk 2 .Also was amazed your film of the bailey production line no uniform ,hi vis vest ,steal toe cap boots very strange.
After meeting Keith (chunky) and his lovely family this afternoon to drop off the awning, I took the opportunity to pop into Flintshire caravans to take a closer look at the Pegasus, I like the construction method it looks strong and tight, I was disappointed with the internal finish or should that be unfinished interior.
Take the internal Alutech joint cover trim it looked like a child had pushed it in place it was rippled and wavy in each of the models I looked at.
The smooth finish to the walls just didn't appeal.
Like Trooper I don't like the front lockers they are not big enough for the stuff that we put in there like Ariel's etc.
Sorry not for me and to be honest having seem the internal finish of doors and cupboards with gaps, I don't think they have addressed the problems I encountered when I attempted to buy a Bailey this time last year
But each to their own, I didn't like the new Interiors of the 2010 Sprite caravans, the cupboards are flat and square and the colour of the wood is not to our liking, in order to get the interior design that I have in my 2009 sprite major it appears you have to move up to the Swift Charisma range, which are of course dearer.
So we came away happy (or should that read "I") having not seen a caravan that "we must have" ;D ;D
We did buy a couple of reflectors for the Postman's dent £3.98p not often that I walk away from a caravan dealers so cheaply ;D ;D
