Bristol, England-based Bailey Motorhomes has confirmed it will introduce its new range of models at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2011, NEC, Birmingham on Oct. 11, according to Out and About Live.
The first vehicles will be a range of motorhomes featuring the award-winning Alu-Tech body shell construction system. This state-of-the-art technology, conceived initially for the company’s touring caravan ranges, is seen by many as the most significant development in leisure vehicle production technology for over 30 years.
Bailey says that because it is engineered to ensure it remains weatherproof and structurally sound, the Alu-Tech body shell sets the standards in terms of durability. A new design interlocking external framework provides greater strength and rigidity as well as significantly reducing the number of external joints and fixing points, thus minimizing the potential for water ingress and improving the overall integrity of the protective shell.
At the same time timber free upper body shell panels, featuring a composite plastic internal skeleton, also offer a second line of defense by limiting the impact any possible ingress may cause.
The body assembly incorporates thicker laminated panels which combine with additional supplementary insulation in traditional cold-spot areas to improve the thermal properties of the shell, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer as well as making the vehicle more economical to own.
Over the past 12 months Bailey has been working on modifying the Alu-Tech system using the latest 3-D modeling computer software to specifically suit the needs of a motorhome. The resulting vehicles have then been subjected to a series of accelerated life and structural tests as well as being given a thorough examination in a climate control chamber at the internationally renowned Millbrook Proving Ground to ensure that every aspect of the new designs have been thoroughly evaluated.
An introductory Bailey Motorhome website is now live at www.bailey-mhomes.co.uk and this will be updated with regular news and product information prior to the official public launch in October later this year.
