  1. I can feel the shinier side slipping across the gap right now, 40 years later oh the memories.
  2. We have just changed from a GT65 Verona to a Unicorn Black Valencia. Pick up this week. 3rd Bailey in a row. 1st was disappointment and Orion 440-4. The dealer gave us a great price to upgrade to the GT65 and has been a super van over the last 5 1/2 years, Yes a few minor bits that needed doing under warranty. Centre window replaced, floor behind the wheel box sorted. But it was an excellent caravan. (Writing this I’m wondering if we’ve done the right thing) so we just hope the Unicorn is as good a Caravan as the GT65 was. Only reason we did the dead was I went with SWMBO to buy some toilet chemicals....the rest is history. One thing I have found is that buying from a local dealer builds a relationship and that in my opinion is worth its weight.
  3. Thanks John 👍
  4. Thanks for the vote of confidence, I think we’re about to take the plunge. Our current car tow match is 70% so we’ll equipped to pull the Valencia. We can’t really go any any bigger as our storage is limited. we’re going from a Gt65 Verona to a Unicorn and looking forward to the Alde heating system and new layout. 👍👍 👍👍👍
  5. Hi Lazy Days We've a GT65 Bailey and have a Tow Pro Elite, easy to fit and remove, no stone chips, no window rub, adds to the nose weight but not much, hard to dry out if it gets wet on the journey out and the weather remains wet but still wouldn't tow any real distance without one now.
  6. Hi Thinking (Only thinking) of going in for the Black Edition Unicorn! anyone out there got one?
  7. I use them on our GT65. As matlo dave points out, quire alarming when the temp goes upwards of 50 degrees and 70 plus PSI, Smooth French Roads in The Summer Ahhhhhh bliss. Wouldn't be without it now, just adds to the safety factor for me.
  8. Hi Bailey People I'm sure we used to have a buy & sell market place on the forum, I cannot see it for the life of me! Has it been removed? Cheers Beebs
  9. We have a 2015 GT65 Verona. Usual stuff under warranty including middle window pain rub (not returned) external wet floor to rear of wheel arch on both sides. But you know it’s a cracking van even with the jet engine under the bed (when on gas) it tows a dream. I don’t think we will be changing anytime soon. (Did consider PX for a black edition unicorn Valencia) I took out the extra 3 year internal/ mechanical warranty and as yet not used it! Yes it it does suffer from the initial cold to warm problem at the front, so we carry a small 2kw blow heater to equal the heat out within the van between October and April (only any good with EHU) We caravan all year around and find it great once it gets to temperature Water heater can suffer from Wind blow out when on gas if the prevalent wind is side on to the heater vent. Again only when off grid as you would use the 750w when hooked up. Anyway enough from me. Its a great spec caravan with plenty to offer. In my opinion. Scott
  10. Tow Pro Elite for me every tow! It’s been fantastic for our Verona. Easy on Easy off. costs a bit more, but in my opinion. Worth every pound.
  11. We have a 66 plate Kuga Titanium Sport 180ps 4x4 running on 235/45R19 XL Conti from new. Towed through France and many places in the uk. Tow MPG is usually returning 35mpg. (42 unladen) very stable. I opted for the manual box. Great car, but you need to observe the correct tyre pressures when towing +3 psi at max load point on the rear. If if you want to know any more message me and I’ll respond ASAP. Scott
  12. Excellent service again by Whale. I wish all after sales support was as prompt and helpful.
  13. Mjohns4 We have had a similar problem. Rain water being sucked up by the floor when it travels along the lower skirt. Dealer fixed under warranty. Looks like they cut a section of the outer ply away and replaced it. . cant tell for sure as they have also under sealed it with a car under body sealer of some sort and re sealed the outer skirt where it joins the lower outer section the sides bolt up through. Seems ok. I won’t be prodding it though as it feels dry each time I check it when we use the van. GT65 Verona beebs
  14. We’ve a 186 at the moment but it’s not HD. .. off to France again this summer so needed an upgrade. The sound on the 186 is good so we went for the 199 as it’s on offer it has a built in sat decoder not that well use that bit.
  15. Just ordered an Avtex 199 pro via the Caravan & motorhome club site. Saved £50 compared to all online and local offers. It’s linked via Prima (Bailey parts) happy camper🙂 Beebs
