Formed by a small group of enthusiastic Bailey caravan owner’s way back in 1970, the Bailey Owners’ Club will reach a major milestone this Easter when it celebrates its 50th birthday.
The Baileys Owners’ Club is an independent organisation, run entirely by volunteers from the membership, which enjoys the full support and encouragement of Bailey of Bristol.
They currently have 600+ members from all over the world and cater for the owners of both Bailey caravans and motorhomes.
By joining the club, you’ll have the opportunity to meet fellow enthusiasts on organised events and rallies across the UK and mainland Europe throughout the year.
Members can also enjoy a range of special discounts from selected insurance companies, vehicle breakdown cover, holiday bookings, and PRIMA Leisure parts and accessories.
Central to the club are the rallies organised by the members themselves for people of all ages who want to make the most of owning a Bailey caravan or motorhome.
They represent an affordable way to enjoy regular holidays and weekend breaks in a friendly and sociable environment and can vary in size from small gatherings to large groups.
