I have decided that this Bailey Valencia I have is going to stay as we are both more than happy with it. Thought about upgrading to the mark 2 but in the end it was the size of the shower that put us off. The one bad thing about the mark 1 Valencia, as has been discussed on these forums, is the nose weight. It tows stable enough, my car is rated at 100kg but it is very difficult to reduce the nose weight to the 100kg region. The result is a hard and uncomfortable ride. Thought I would upgrade the rear suspension and was about to purchase Coil-Rite air spring inserts. I am using donuts at present which do help maintain a level outfit. Before ordering I called my insurance. RIAS The woman who answered was very understanding and said she would pass on to the underwriters that I only wanted to improve the towing ability and safety by using a well tried and tested product manufactured by an international company. Result. A definite NO! RIAS will not accept suspension modifications in any circumstances. I told her I will not be renewing in December, she did not argue. Is this other member’s impression of RIAS? Does anyone have experience of Coil-Rites they could pass on? John
