  1. I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole, both ours damaged both caravans ... One of the best purchases I made was a Isabella Shadow canopy's. I have the 4 metre length, stands up to winds causing no damage and takes minutes to erect & seconds to take down πŸ‘πŸ€ͺ
  2. Mine is 28 months old ... Nothing like forward planning πŸ‘πŸ˜‚ ... They reckon four to six years for water to destroy the ply. Hate to think the time scale if I didn't cover the van in the winter πŸ’§πŸŒ§οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸ™„
  3. This is a fabulous tool I've just purchased ... Maybe worth investing in if your considering cutting your under floors sections out. It also had a dept marker to get your required cut into the ply πŸ‘πŸ‘multitool would be a good idea.
  4. No disrespect but this is just a nothingness πŸ˜‰
  5. Nope had it confirmed by the dealer they now do not. Only remedial work to ingress to the interior floor.
  6. Bailey do not cover the under floor for rot even within the 6 year period. It's goodbye to my Uni 4 at four years or sooner πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
  7. Nice job πŸ‘ Let me know if the mastic to the rear panel corners stays in place. If it does I may try this on mine to see if it deflects the water from the rear under floor. Apparently Bailey now don't cover any water damage or rot to the underfloor of their caravans, so just wondering if doing this will keep the floor drier after rainfall πŸ‘πŸ‘
  8. Wow 65,000 were did you get your figures from πŸ€” ... I must have just had three bad ones. Dealers know of the wet outside floor problems & some have there own ideas of a fix. I think the floors if your lucky will stand to their warranty, so if you change before six years why worry. Hopefully one day I'll own a caravan that will give me a service life beyond the basic warranty expiry πŸ‘πŸ‘ Wouldn't it be interesting if every Alu-Tech owner now started to check their under floor condition after rainfall. πŸ€”
  9. Nope ... "44mm β€˜sandwich' floor construction with GRP outer skin, ply upper and high rigidity Styrofoam core"
  10. Bailey just can't stop water running back to the floor on their design's. Every Alu-tech I've owned has had premature rot to the floor now. Though I can only blame myself in trusting in Bailey to rectify the problem in future models. Anyway I'll just plod on a while longer until I get rid of it πŸ‘πŸ‘ Swift don't use ply on the outer floor skin only on the interior ...
  11. Doesn't look fine .. have you seen it πŸ™„
  12. I'm on my third Specialised cover now and each van after the winter cover is removed has had soft white marks on the windows ... They polish of after a couple of cleans ... The rest of the floor looks brand new but suddenly this appeared and it's not even the side that the water runs off. I'll just use it until it rots and change the caravan. I reckon after its 3 years old I'll have to change it but obviously not for another Bailey πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  13. Not looking good ... Hey-ho πŸ™„
  14. These are the floor sections in the summer months not the winter ... The cover keeps it dry in the winter πŸ™„
  15. Not sure if I'd paint anything onto the floor that stops the ply from breathing & drying out. Everyone is now aware now that the ply used is Not marine ply. Basically Bailey Lesuire after years of the same problems should have designed this weakness out or at least have a retro solution ..
