In order to full fill the design brief Bailey set up an in-house design team known as Team Pegasus. This group of eight people, with exactly 100 years experience in caravan manufacturing, was selected from all areas of the company, and were each given responsibility for a specific element of the development process.

Under the guidance of Bailey Managing Director Nick Howard, for a two year period, Team Pegasus has undertaken the most comprehensive product validation programme the industry has ever known, re-evaluating every aspect of leisure vehicle design.

The result is the development if the Alu-Tech body shell construction system.
