This is one of the Multi Award winning Family Motorhomes of the year from 2014 and one of the best drop down bed motorhomes in Europe, it is a 2014 Bailey Approach Autograph 765 6 berth, 6 belt with rear U shape lounge and centre dinette, having covered just under 36,500 miles.
The 765 Approach Autograph offers great internal head space, Bailey achieved this by modifying the Al-Ko chassis, to make them even lower. This also contributes to the 765’s purposeful stance, Bailey’s decision to use Al-Ko’s special chassis rather than the standard-issue Boxer structure makes a lot of sense, particularly on the open road as the 765 drives and handles so well.
Power comes from Peugeot’s 2.2 HDi 130 Diesel engine, with a six speed manual gearbox. The 765 has a max weight of 3500Kgs and is 7.45m in length.
The Bailey Approach Autograph 765 has two separate lounging areas – the U-shaped rear lounge and the dinette, just rear of the cab seats.Thanks to the extra-wide habitation body, there’s lots of room in both lounges. The rear lounge is especially spacious and it’s a perfect area in which all six occupants can eat and socialise at the same time in complete comfort around the freestanding table.
The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, the worktops are now a classic glossy dark grey, with cream-coloured trim and cream locker doors with frosted glass inserts.The sink is a large, circular unit with a separate chopping board and drain cover. The cooker is a Thetford unit with a built-in oven and grill, three gas burners and an electric hotplate. A microwave oven is included as standard and is hidden behind a frosted glass door.
The superb electric drop-down bed is postioned longitudinally and not transverse across the width of the habitation space, taking up only half of the vehicle’s width, thanks to the Bailey 765 wide habitation body a corridor is retained through the motorhome, even when the bed is lowered. The bed is lowered electrically, controlled by a dedicated switch near the control panel, there’s a safety cut-off in the form of a key, to ensure that the bed never lowers by accident. It’s a spacious and very comfortable double bed, equipped with excellent Froli plastic bed springs, accessible via a ladder, since it lowers about halfway down the height of the interior in order to retain sufficient headroom for the dinette bed underneath it, which is easy to make up and a good sized double bed.
The rear lounge bed is the most spacious in this motorhome, it’s extremely comfortable and very easy to put together, just slide out the slatted base extension from between the lounge seats and re-position the cushions to make this bed into a massive 2.2m x 1.79m.
The well appointed central washroom doesn’t take up too much space as the washroom tapers towards the rear of the vehicle, so that the central corridor widens slightly as it approaches the rear lounge.The wider, front-most portion of the washroom is dedicated to the Thetford toilet, while the narrower rear section houses a separate shower cubicle which is includes the washbasin which a clever space-saving solution.
The chassis design allows for double floor sections across certain sections of this motorhome, a great example of this is the locker that runs under the rear lounge, which is accessible either from inside the lounge, or from outside via a locker door built into the rear panel. By housing many of the facilities between the floors this has freed up space for storage within the habitation area. This is most noticeable under the dinette and rear lounge seating, both of which offer loads of space. The seat bases lift up on gas struts, which is an excellent touch. The new double-floor design allows the plumbing and electrics, heat and water to be carried around the vehicle without reducing storage spaces and the leisure battery is stored under the dinette floor with space for a second leisure battery if needed.
As standard, this 765 includes Alde wet heating with programmable timing. While Bailey wasn't the first UK manufacturer to offer Alde heating it was the first one to offer the combination of wet heating, Al-Ko chassis, double-floor sections and wood-free sidewall construction.
The Peugeot Boxer cab area includes two swivel seats, Waeco reversing camera, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, electric driver and passenger windows, REMIS concertina window blinds, electrically adjustable wing mirrors, sunroof, cab air conditioning and CD player. Outside specification includes a Fiamma ZIP awning, awning light, 2 gas bottles and continuing the prestigious look and feel of the whole motorhome is the stylish black cab paintwork.
