Not heard of that, however the floor creaks now when you walk around and is consistent with what I would expect if the joint bolts between wall and floor had started to ease from their original torque settings.
The vinyl floor covering is not attached to the floor under the front bunks.
The end bathroom can only be heated if you are on mains electric and can use a fan heater, as the heated towel rail is about as much good as a chocolate fire gaurd. Rallying in the winter has left the bathroom blind covered in mildew and the material isn't wipeable. Changed in the latest models to a more sensible material.
In France this January in the snow the Alde heating couldn't get the temperature above 19c on electric and had to be supplimented with gas. This is due to the lack of finned piping and radiators not the temperature of the fluid, a design cost saving exercise.
Interesting that the Bailey promotion of touring Australia with a Barcelona states one of the chamges made is to use the new grp coated panels to cope with the terrain, with the cut backs in Europe the roads are degenerating fast and in the poorer countries of the union they are very bad some villages have never been serviced with tarmac roads. Having toured Hungary, Croatia, Czech Republic and just got back from Portugal, where apart from the few motorways all the roads including the National Highways regularly degenerate into stretches of potholes and gravel without warning.
Those who have purchased pre 2013 models and particularly anyone who enjoys extended touring will pay the penalty for Bailey's structural shortcomings, if they have their way.
Travel to the winter sun.
