  1. Yes and some of them are English Living up here !!!
  2. I was being facetious ! As my father always said paper takes on anything !
  3. I’ve got the pdi list with everything ticked
  4. Hi we managed away in our new Estoril for four days before Covid 19 restrictions. New van towed well apart from squealing brakes. It is very light at front so I will have to try loading differently (then won’t remember where anything is ). Loving the interior space with no more trampled toes and we can pass without the caravan shuffle. Faults that should have been picked up before delivery from Bailey . Bathroom sink not set into worktop straight and sealer between it and w/top not cleaned off . O/s bedroom blind corner screw over tightened and screw lying loose inside cover so the blind Cassette was moving. I had to replace screw with a larger size. Bathroom door hitting door frame when opening and closing ( Salesman says well you see the van is not level because all the legs are not down !!!! Really it’s sitting on its wheels.) Also I can see the door frame skeleton from both sides of the door. New door ordered at dealership! Anyone tried to use the room divider with the carpets fitted? (It’s too long and won’t work unless you move carpet from under it.) Radio dab not working? ( salesman Oh it’s a bad area!) I took out radio and fitted the dab aerial wire into the correct socket. This the 3rd new Bailey I’ve had to do this to as the wire was not connected just lying disconnected. Our tv is a 22 ins Cello and I moved the tv mounting bracket closer to the wall so the tv fits the space and does not stick out past the fridge . Any suggestions for the cutlery drawer? The interior wood separating frame is so poor that after towing we had a drawer of mixed cutlery with the frame sitting on top of it all. I have been caravanning for 47 years and am still living in hope that some day manufacturers will be able to build a new caravan and use a quality control inspection properly and at just short of £30000 am I expecting too much? I’ve had different makes of new caravans over the years and this is not only a Bailey problem.
  5. Hi our Estoril has been delivered to the dealer .Having pdi done and mover fitted so we are picking it up next week weather permitting !
  6. Hi Any one know where to find discount code for a tow pro towing cover or the cheapest place to buy one ? Jim
  7. Hi we found our cooker glass top on the floor in front of the fridge ! No damage to either . This was after we arrived home and opened the door to empty the van . It’s only held on with two plastic screws.
  8. Some of the complaints about Alde heating is coming from some site owners about the amount of leccy they use in comparison to the truma blown air system . They can tell as the sites have meters on the pitches.
  9. Hi , it should be ok as long as we all remember to breath in !! We’ve spent a few holidays in NZ both north and south islands ( scenery so like home , same rain ) You would certainly know all about narrow roads ? My wife’s cousin in Auckland has a caravan that we stayed in on one visit they tour all over NZ and are enjoying it in their retirement . Thanks for you’re reply.
  10. Hi I’ve been to see the new Bailey Estoril Grande at my local dealers and am really impressed. We had a Bailey Cadiz for three years and were due to change 2 years ago but did not like the new cadiz . Dark wood and white doors also smaller beds did not do it for us but loved the changes to the outside of the body .Instead we bought a new Pegasus gt70 it looked the same as the old Cadiz in and out and suited us so had it for 2 years then saw the new Estoril and they have used the lighter wood and bigger beds also have much more room inside being 8ft wide . We have ordered a new Estoril Grande and will take delivery in March.
  11. Hi anyone know what happened to the “ new anti theft number plates “ I am sure I remember hearing about. You stick them on to the vehicle and if anybody removes them the numbers and letters breakup and come away from the Perspex plate leaving them useless.
  12. I thought it was because cpt manwearing now has a motor caravan that sites had to keep hard standing in case he wants to stay .
  13. Hi compact I have  the glc coupe  and it does as you say . I bought a new spare wheel and tyre on eBay steel space saver it came with its own bag . I had to buy shorter bolts for it . It fits in my boot under the lid floor  there is a place  on the right side for it to sit .  I am happier knowing it’s there when towing .  Jim

  14. Hi I bought caravan touch up paint on eBay for my Bailey so the colour matches.
