Bailey to launch first van conversion at October NEC Show

Bailey of Bristol is to start producing its first van conversion, with a new Ford-based model called Endeavour due to be launched at this October’s Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC.

The Bailey website will be updated on 5 October with more information about the vehicle.

Although the motorhome manufacturer used Peugeot base vehicles when it first moved into motorhomes in 2011, it started working with Ford with the launch of the Adamo range in 2020. This range has now grown to five models, including the Bailey Adamo 60-4 and the Bailey Adamo 75-4T.

Bailey also qualified as an official Ford Pro Converter for coachbuilt motorhomes in August last year.

Members of Bailey’s production team recently presented their first pre-production Endeavour model to the Ford Pro Special Vehicle Team for evaluation at their UK headquarters in Dunton, Essex.

Bailey managing director Nick Howard said, “The introduction of our first van conversion is the next important step in the expansion of our existing motorhome portfolio.”

The Bailey team also updated them on the work they have been doing on a concept van conversion based on the Ford E-Transit. This forms a central part of Bailey’s sustainability planning.
