Motorhome Review: the Bailey Approach Autograph 765

January 7, 2015

Bailey of Bristol have made quality motorhomes since 1949 and are known for producing some of the finest motorhomes in the UK. In fact, we suspect that Bailey has converted more caravanners to motorhomes than any other manufacturer – with innovative designs and progressive layouts that never fail to surprise and excite. They had a record year in 2013 and released a new model to replace the old Bailey Approach SE. The new Bailey Approach Autograph 765 deals with several of the SE’s arguable shortcomings, and does so to fantastic effect. So what’s changed? Let’s take a closer look at the Bailey Approach Autograph 765.

Design

The first thing you’ll notice when you see the Autograph is that it’s pretty wide for a motorhome. It is a six berth, after all – and although it’s certainly not the widest we’ve seen, it might struggle on the narrowest country lanes. The exterior design is rather lovely, however, especially following the comparatively boxy design of the SE. The cab curves up nicely and has changed colour from silver to a sexier black. A black decal flows from the cab to halfway across the body, creating a nice union between the two – something we’d love to see more of in future designs.

Stepping inside, the first thing we noted was the fact that there were 2 berths missing. Except they weren’t. Using a switch above the main entrance (well away from the kids), you can electronically lower a double berth from the roof. It folds away so neatly you won’t notice it’s there at all. This drop-down system is the first of its kind in the UK, but we expect to see more of them in the future. Hiding the bed against the roof has freed up a ton more space usually not available in a six berth, resulting in a seriously spacious motorhome.

Features

The kitchen is beautifully modern and comes with a microwave, a cooker with four hobs, fridge and stainless steel sink. The bathroom uses its extra space to create a separate wet area for the sink and shower – meaning stepping into puddles on your way to the toilet is a thing of the past. Other notable additions are the two drains in the shower, further eliminating the chance of puddles outside of the wet area in the washroom. Both the kitchen and the washroom are designed with large families in mind, leaving enough space for multiple activities in either or for helping the little ones.

The Bailey Approach Autograph boasts several sunroofs, resulting in a refreshingly open and well-lit motorhome. The designers at Bailey Motorhomes made sure the Autograph was family friendly in every way, so there’s plenty of storage space and an exceptionally low entrance step – and even the rear seats have been crash tested to keep your family safe in the unfortunate event of a collision. On the road, the Autograph handles like one of the best thanks to a super low Al-Ko chassis.

The beautiful Bailey Approach Autograph 765 can be yours, starting from £47,450. It’s the perfect motorhome for large families and is guaranteed to offer years of fun and adventure.
