Caravan

  1. I am trying to find out and share details of the problem and outcome from anyone who has suffered problems with an Alko chassis, particularly on a Bailey caravan. We currently have such a problem and are battling it out with Bailey I think that there is a problem which should be covered under warranty, but am being blamed for causing the problem. We were due to pick up our 2 year old Bailey Unicorn Vigo from its service last week. They called us to say it was ready, then called us 10 minutes later to say that it was unfit to drive!!!!! The word 'axle' was mentioned, as were the
  2. I wondered if anyone could help with some advise? My Alko Wheel Lock on my 2012 Bailey Pegasus Verona has now faded from Red to a Pinky/Orange colour. I really think it looks awful & uncared for. It also has a few chips on the paintwork from the years of use. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? I am thinking of giving the lock a coat of Smooth Red Hammerite Paint? I realise I need to be careful to mask the lock off appropriately & make sure I get no paint where it's not supposed to be. I have already ordered a new plastic "wheel protector" back pl
  3. I have a new (July 2018) Bailey Cabrera Unicorn IV. While towing it the sliding door came free from the retaining strap and one of the hangers broke. I tried to glue it together but perhaps predictably it has broken again. To avoid the hassle of getting my retailer to do what should be a very simple repair I contacted Bailey to ask if they had a spare hanger and some instructions to fit it. They basically told me to take it back to my retailer. My questions are, can I get this part elsewhere and, if I do, how do I fit it? Thank you.
  4. Hi all, Completely new to all this after 15 odd years camping with the OH. Took the plunge and recently bought a pre-owned Bailey Pageant Bordeaux 2008 with one previous owner. Bought from reputable official dealer and waiting on collection day this week. Any help or tips for a newbie would be appreciated but looking forward to getting out there. Simon
  5. So after one trip using caravan the mrs and I want to start a wish list of things we would like and which order to get them. Awning would be good. motor mover sounds like a good idea but no idea what type etc solar panel. Is this a good idea or waste of money? what else should be on list?? thanks for help James ( if this is posted in wrong place pls move it right place. )
  6. Being laid up at present for a couple of weeks has been sending me stir crazy. So given the number of posts on Warranty claims, being knocked back for – common problems experienced by members I have tried to put together a comparison chart manufacturer to manufacturer. (British main stream vans) I am fully aware of the protection given by the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and that this usually exceeds what the manufacturer gives. But the differences between manufacturers confidence in their product might just surprise some people and assist others. All the information has been taken f
  7. Hi New to this forum but not a Troll. Not a caravan enthusiast but bought a Unicorn Vigo 2016 in October. Was advised by the dealer to go for a Swift but my tow car couldn’t manage the weight and the Vigo was just in. I bought it to live in while at work in North North Europe. Until last week I was very happy with it: Great Layout for one/two people and fully functional kitchen and bathroom. .comfortable and light and over the winter months the Aldi central heating kept me warm. However, The cold dry has disappeared and has been replaced by rain. La
  8. I am new to this forum and was needing some help with the correct awning size for my caravan listed above. The Bailey website states a1025cm should fit but I would like a second opinion from anyone who has or has had a Bailey Madrid s2 2013. Isabella awnings are quite expensive so I’d like to make sure the size is correct before I bite the bullet and purchase one thanks brian
  9. I purchased a bailey pageant Loire 2009 just before lockdown it has been one problem after another. The caravan was pulled 150 miles home then sat for months. We have had it sited for 3 weeks now and here is the list of probs. 1, front locker cracked almost immediately - split about a third of the way across. 2, spongy floor delaminated in 3 places. Already had one patch or delam repair. 3, plastic fridge door hinge broken on the first outing. Door falling off. 4, discovered a nice crack in the back panel and it now has a spongy top right corner. Anything else I
  10. Hi all looking at buying a Bailey Unicorn Barcelona as a first caravan. 2012 model. Is there anything I should look out for or is there a better van for the same or similar money. (£11500)
  11. Hi can anyone help. Found this on Caravan Guard web site "Owners of Tracker Monitor systems fitted to Bailey Unicorns between 2010 and March 2015 should be aware that these devices won’t be supported after 31st March 2018. Also the device has an internal back up battery which kicks in if power from the caravan’s leisure battery is cut – bear in mind this back up battery will only last between 3 and 5 years." Does anyone know if this is correct if so does that mean I haven't been covered by Tracker since 2018 even though I paid for 5 year cover in 2015.
  12. Has anyone had trouble with their Thetford toilet bowl turning yellow? This is when van only 9 months old & been used for less than 7 weeks! Never had this problem before & dealer doesn't seem to have any answers either. Have bought (but bit reluctant to try) 'Elsan Toilet Bowl Cleaner' but we're not optimistic as it's a 'cleaner' not 'restorer'. Anyone able to supply ideas please??
  13. For any that are interested Bailey has done a few videos about restarting the business as Covid Safe. All available on utube. Just search Bailey Caravans. The latest is on restarting production, released today. Factory production to restart August.

  15. Wheel Covers for your Bailey Caravan It’s nearly time for the season to start. Caravans will soon be wheeled out of storage, cleaned, polished and ready to go. You’ll be finding your locks, dusting off the awning and figuring out what new things you might need. We’re here to tell you the one thing you’ll definitely need – Bailey wheel covers. Whether you’re looking to protect your tyres from the elements or you’re fed up of a draughty awning, the humble wheel cover is one of the best caravan accessories that you can buy and is sure to become an essential. But with so many types
  16. Bailey launched new range https://www.baileyofbristol.co.uk/caravans/discovery/discovery-d4-4 Some very interesting features.

  17. Hi On a recent holiday trip with my Bailey Orion 530/6 and on the first night I went to put on my Whale blow air heater system to find it kept tripping the main MCB. On investigation by the supplier the unit was full of water. The supplier says all gaskets etc. .. where in tact and therefore its not a warranty replacement. My local dealer says it must have had a hose pipe up the flue due to the amount of water. I find this extremely hard to believe since it is stored securely on a Gold Secure site and the caravan had only not been off the site since the last time it was used it
  18. Hi All, I have a 2007 Bailey Pageant Provence Series 6 caravan, and I am struggling to try to change the bulb in one of the 4 lights which are flush mounted in hte surround of the Heiki skylight, which has failed. I am not interested in changing to LEDs, I simply want to change a bulb which has blown. I have read other advice which seems to suggest you either need to twist the bezel anti-clockwise or prise it apart. I have tried to twist it anti-clockwise to open it, but it will not open, I haven't yet taken tools to it. Other advice posted says you have to lever it apart. I want t
  19. I am making / installing an automatic on-board water tank filling system to my 2009 Bailey Senator Arizona. I made one of these for my Lunar Delta about 20 years ago. Now I have another Caravan with an onboard tank I find it annoying how complicated Bailey have made it to fill the on-board tank. I have to remove the cushions from the rear locker, lift the rack, "set" two change-over valves, (correct combination, depending if I am using external, internal or filling internal from external). Then switch the electric pump to "fill", wait until it's filled, and then switch the valves as requir
  20. I've a 1997 Bailey Hunter Lite 470/5, which I'm enjoying very much, other than connecting up the waste. The kitchen waste is forward of the left axle, facing forward, and the toilet sink waste is at the rear right of the 'van, facing backwards. (We don't use the shower, so the third waste isn't relevant). Currently using lengths of flexi hose, but each has to double back under the 'van, and it's a bit of a pain getting them both into the waste container, which needs to be far under the 'van for the hoses to reach. I could just get longer hoses, but is there a cleverer way of doing it
  21. I have a Bailey senator Louisiana. key goes into lock turns quarter anti cw then stops. I can’t get in the van! I have used ice, gentle persuasion and language lol. anyone got any ideas?
  22. Hi Could someone offer some advice on how I go about replacing the two speakers that are attached to the factory installed jvc head unit. They are two of them and they are mounted at the front of the van near the seating area above our heads under the locker compartments. one of the speakers rattles when music is being played and I believe the speaker is damaged/ worn out. i can’t see a way to remove the trim surrounding the speaker, do I just prose it away as there are no screws showing .. thanks and best regards Tim
  23. Looking to expand our horizons and got to more site without EHU. To keep the costs down and to prevent having to drill into the caravan roof, we are thinking of getting a freestanding panel which we just get out when we need. The only problem we see with that is that on our caravan (Bailey Phoenix 420) the battery locker is under the floor, rather than being on the outside. Can anyone give me some advice on if it is possible to fit a panel, or if this is even a sensible idea? What kit would I need? Cheers in advance guys. Joe
  24. Hi, I've just bought a new Bailey Phoenix which has a 'Truma Inet Ready' control panel. Does this mean that the Inet box will be in the van somewhere? I haven't found it, but not sure if I would have to purchase this separately. Thanks
