Keep an eye on the windows had all mine changed, bar two, cracks appear near the hinge corners and spread, it appears it was a bad batch of windows.

Reads from who we bought the van new, did a top job in sorting it out on our problems.

I did a bit of home work, and found some other people with vans had the same problems not only Bailey, that on very hot days if we used the silver backed blinds, the cracks started, possibly expansion and contraction of the air inside the sealed windows, it might be fluke of weather but with the silver lining bouncing the heat back, but now we only use the curtains in hot weather, and are crack free, with no other problems.

Its a really good van, great to tow, hope enjoy it as much as we do.

 

This is just a tip it might not happen to you.
