Hi Birdman 101
        Many thanks for your kind wishes. I am amazed by the fact that this topic has been viewed 5066 times. Are they people with the same problems? Or potential purchasers ? I suppose I will never !!

The matter of the caravan was settled under consumer law. I don't think the separate issue of your claim for out of pocket expenses as a result of your faulty caravan is covered by consumer law. If the dealer can prove it was Bailey who was responsible for damage to/faults with caravan then it might be grounds for a court rejecting your claim & it might be Bailey you have to sue.

I think you need to be careful here. Not quite the same, but if you lose the use of a caravan for a period of time due to faults being rectified under warranty all dealers will have a disclaimer stating they are not responsible for costs incurred(ie cancelled holidays or whatever)which result from loss of use of caravan. These t&c's are also included in manufacturer warranties as well & this may well be used to defend your claim against them.

You need to hope for an out of court settlement here, I think. If dealer fights this it will because he believes he has a strong case...but best of luck, of course.

Hi michell8
     Many thanks for your input. It is always good to get a spread of different opinions   As far as I am aware as I purchased the caravan from a dealer my contract was with them. As such my claim is against them as the supplier.   The dealer has taken the caravan to the dealership.

Hi all 6335 of you and your viewings of our problem.
We are now waiting for the date for court case.
       When the dealer asked me for the proof of site fees,proof of the awning order,insurance details and a copy of our engineers report i of course complied, I asked for a copy of their engineers report, a copy of the PDI sheet and also a copy of the buildsheet. The reply I got was that the compensation/out of pocket expenses claim was nothing to do with the caravan claim so I was refused on all three requests. But they said that our engineers report had been passed to Bailey and it formed part of their cases. I of course forwarded copies of the letters to and fro to the court as to me this seemed a little unfair.One law for them and one law or interpretation of it for me.
Thankyou for your interest and kind wishes.
