I could not believe how awful the interiors were.
The pageant series 7 was like a lump of dark plastic had exploded inside and the series 6 Senator I had to double check we hadn't gone into a discovery by mistake, it all looked so cheep and nasty. We looked at a Series 5 Senator Indiana and the difference was unbelievable. the quality of the interior in the older van was so much better. Comparing the whole bailey range if I had the money for a new van I don't think I would spend the extra for a pageant or Senator, the discovery and the ranger are far better value, yes the others have more features but at what cost. To be honest I don't think I will part with my old Ranger for a new Baily for a while. I hope the new Ranger and G60 are are better finished.
However none of the Baileys were any were near the standard of the Adria's the dealer also sells.

They want a "light" TA Van and the S7 Limosin looked liked it fit the bill, they were in a position to buy. but were VERY disappointed by the S7 wood colour and finish, a massive step down from the S5. they currently have. to top it off the trade in price would be around 5.5k !!. They also looked at the s6 wyoming and the abbeys on show. They plan to now goto the NEC show but they seemed to prefer the abbey i tried to persuade them to look for a used s6 wyoming but they seem to prefer to buy new.
what summed the viewing up was my wife opened a top locker and shut it and the silver trim fell off, at pretty much the same my mother in law shut the bathroom door and the top hinge ripped out of the wood.

Having now had 3 baileys - hunter lite, pageant and now the senator i think they offer better value each year and the build quality on mine is superb.
Maybe the demo models you saw had been knocked around abit....but agree the pageant s7 dark wood is awful.
