  1. That looks pretty good . many thanks for the link
  2. No - it's the roller blinds on the windows not the concertina blinds on the roof lights. Seems that many of these issues are just taken back to the dealer - surely there must be some information about how these work somewhere?
  3. Hi Bailey Pursuit 2015 I am seeking some guidance on how one deals with blinds that don't want to roll back up. The front window is the main problem in that it won't re-wind more than about 1/3rd the way up. Have looked on Utube, but the vids seem to be older style of blinds and my main concern is that I don't completely destroy any fittings getting at the blinds. Instructions / advice gratefully received. Thanks Rob
  4. Am collecting our new (to us) Bailey Pursuit next week and dragging it back to the highlands over 500 miles - I was thinking about one of these front towing covers but I see that they require awning channels on both sides of the caravan to fit them. I was just wondering if any Pursuit owner could confirm whether they have channels both sides ? Thanks in advance Rob
  5. I'm looking at buying a used Pursuit Plus 430-4 - trying to get a realistic idea of what is a "fair" used price. Obviously I know it depends on condition and extras included, BUT is there some form a of rule of thumb to try an gauge the deprecation? Also looking at the current Bailey price list they don't seem to make the Pursuit any more - did production cease in 2018? if so any idea why? Thanks Rob
  6. I know it's subjective and I guess that all manufacturers have issues from time to time. However I'm looking at 2 makes and have seen a few used vans of the type I'm struggling to make my mind up Choice is between Bailey Ranger 520/4 - circa 2009 and Elddis 504 circa 2014 Both have a MTPLM of around 1300-1350 which is where I want to be. Does one have a demonstrably worse / flimsier build quality than the other? I know it's an unanswerable question,. but would be interested in hearing from folk who have had experiences with both makes if not necessarily these actual models. Many thanks Rob
  7. The scout tows well - Now I no longer have a shogun, I use the scout to pull my Ifor Williams LT105 - have happily towed at just under 1800-kg (ballast from the quarry) so was looking at MTPLM of around 1500kg, but SWMBO is not so experienced and so wants to keep around the 85% guideline - which is fair enough. Baily Ranger GT60 520/4 seems to fit the bill Driving licences not an issue
  8. Thanks - just checked the B Pillar and the figures are 3929 (assume GTW) and 2129 (assume max car weight) (= 1800 kgs towing). The 2 other figures relate to axle 1 (1100 kg) and axle 2 (1080 kg) To keep SWMBO happy I'll be sticking to a MTPLM of 1300 -1350.. Now just to decide on the make ... !
  9. Hi all, newbie here to the forum. I'm not new to towing, but this is the first car that has not been able to tow 3.5t. Wife is wanting a caravan and so I'm trying to find one with the right weight, layout and size. The car is an Octavia scout and the V5 gives the following info Mass in service 1559 kg Max Permissible mass 2129 kg Max towing wight 1800 kg The V5 does not seem to specify a tow bar weight Firstly am i correct in assuming that the max train weight is 3929 kgs? Secondly what would be the heaviest MTPM for a caravan we could consider? I have been limiting my searches to 1500kg - too low too high? Advice / opinions welcome and appreciated Ta Rob
