Hi wonder if anyone has the same problem as me on there bailey Pegasus one of the front locker doors is on the wrong way round and it opens against the caravan side wall not out the front of the van like the opposite side and I'm scared it will dent the caravan panel, can the door be taken off and turned round the other way so it opens away from the van. Thanks any help welcome.

Yup, mine's like that. I guess they all hinge on the right.

 

It's never bothered me. Could it actually hit the van? Wouldn't the frame prevent that?

 

I doubt you could turn it around as any drainage would then be at the top.

hi have seen other bailey caravans and both doors go the same way? So is it a fitting fault at the factory?

The drain holes are in the incorrect position on the U1 as the door should I believe drop for the drains to be on the bottom.

 

In practice it makes no difference, mine have never leaked, but both open towards the front.

Hi

I doubt it will damage caravan sides, they are grp so cannot dent.

The frame is not dual hinged, so unfortunately you cant fit the door to the other side if the fame. I've never seen a front thetford locker door open to the rear of the caravan (Towards the side panel) :blink:

 

Personally I think I would live with it. ....... Your outer skin on the GT65 is GRP, so very little chance of damage. ^_^

Hi

My lockers both open to the front, looks like you have manufacturing error.

I would get it turned round at next service, If it were to come open during towing, i would think the wind would rip it off. (Not that it should, but have seen them left open) :)

Just checked mine, they both open forwards, on close inspection they can be fitted either way, so one of yours has been fitted upside down. To rectify, the dealer needs to take out the complete unit, turn it round and "reseal" before refitting.

Beware of changing anything round on a bailey,give them half a chance and somehow they will find a way of negating your warranty(for what it's worth)it's down to your supplying dealer to fix.

My Verona was new a couple of months ago and the nearside door opens towards the rear and the offside opens towards the front of the van. As I face each locker it means the hinge is always on the right - is that right or not? I don't know.

Apparently some open the same way and others open different ways. I have emailed Bailey for confirmation of how they should open.

Mine is the same. Can't say this issue is causing me to lose much sleep but it would be interesting to see what Bailey's response is.

Just checked ours again and I was wrong - both ours open towards the front.
