The Bailey 540 is built upon the Peugeot Euro 5 Boxer Cab which is powered by the tried and tested Peugeot 2.2 Hdi (High Pressure Direct Injection) engine. This unit produces 130bhp and is married to a six speed manual gear box resulting in a combination of excellent performance and low vehicle emissions. Driver and passenger comfort is further enhanced with a pair of fully adjustable swivel seats with twin arm rests and regardless of the temperature outside the air conditioning will ensure you remain comfortable on the inside. Further benefits include electric windows, electric heated mirrors, variable power steering, ABS (Anti-locking Brakes), EBA (Emergency Brake Assist), cruise control and a DAB radio with USB connection. All of our vehicles come standard with a rear view camera to assist you when parking. And finally a front facing panoramic roof ensures a light and airy feel within the cab area. The cab area further benefits from factory fitted concertina windscreen and side window blinds.

As practical as it is comfortable this well thought out motorhome includes a variety of features designed to make your holiday as comfortable and easy as possible with an internal headroom of 2.10m and internal width of 2.27m. Under the flooring there is a convenient storage compartment which houses a high performance 110Ah auxiliary battery which provides greater independence when you are away from a mains power source. This is perfect if you fancy exploring some more remote destinations or a few days wild camping ‘far from the madding crowd’! Also located underneath the flooring area are the two 100 litre water tanks, one for fresh water and one for your waste.

This motorhome comes with a factory fitted user friendly digitally controlled ‘Alde’ radiator heating system which operates similarly to the heating system found in most houses these days with similar features guaranteed to keep you warm and cosy regardless of the weather outside, providing the genuine opportunity of all 4 seasons camping. There are four dedicated travelling seats reinforced with steel frame seat base supports combined with three point seat belts for added comfort and safety. Further safety features include high security door locks, smoke alarm, carbon monoxide alarm and fire extinguisher.

You will be spoiled for choice with an abundance of storage options including aircraft style overhead door lockers whilst in the kitchen area you will find a good sized fridge freezer, an anti-rattle combination oven and grill and a dual fuel hob with hotplate and 3 gas burners, an 800 watt microwave, stainless steel washing up bowl with swan neck mixer tap, drainer, chopping board and an abundance of high gloss work surface.

A separate washroom is situated to the rear of the vehicle which contains a toilet, wash hand basin, ample storage for your toiletries and a separate fully lined shower cubicle with energy saving shower. 

This vehicle further benefits from having a fixed double bed which after a long hard day spent enjoying the scenery and countryside you can lay back and watch the TV, put on a favourite DVD, listen to a CD or MP3 or connect wirelessly and drift away whilst listening to your own music.  

A flush fitting easy access glazed habitation door provides entry into the motorhome gas strut assisted for smooth operation. All windows and skylights are fully double glazed with night latch ventilation and all are fitted with fly screens to keep our beloved endemic midges at bay. There is an outside access locker which houses 2 x 10kg gas bottles, you will also find a further large access door which opens the under bed storage area which can conveniently house folding chairs and BBQ’s. All of our motorhomes are fitted with a 4 bike rack, tow bar with single electrics and a rear view camera.
