There are a lot of people with faulty baileys .
So WHY are baileys still selling more vans than any one else.
I will never buy another one.
Ours was leaking from the start . We collected it in June 2012 and by August it was being repaired. Now just two years and after being returned and repaired again. This is I think the fourth time not counting time when having services.
Baileys are happy to just keep repairing . But I must say I'm sick of it . I am constantly writing letters to them . But we have our van serviced away from where we bought it . The dealer doesn't reply to my complaints when I inform them of our problems. However our service engineers love baileys . It keeps them in business. We are now thinking of calling it a day. But what to do give up or ?

Hi Everyone
           Just to let you all know that Anne is back home now after her operation and although it is early days,the signs are encouraging. So for all of you kind caring vanners thankyou for all your kind wishes and thoughts.
     At long last we have a COURT DATE IT IS 29/09/2014 at 10am In the county court Llandudno LL30 1GA .This is a year and two days since we had the new!! caravan delivered to the site in Snead Powis.
    As i have always said win or loose the story will be told.
    I am very positive regarding the case and although i have to pay another 335 hearing fee which is a lot of money when you are a pensioner, It is time someone stood up to these people that think they can get away with messing with peoples lives, may be it is me.Time alone will tell.

Hi birdman 101
                   Many thanks for your kind words..           Yes this posting has now had 9606 views, so either there a hell of a lot of people with time on their hands, have purchased a Badly Leaking Bailey or were thinking of investing their hard earned money in a BLB. We realise that when you purchase a new caravan things go wrong it is the nature of a mass produced vehicle.
     But when things go as badly wrong as our NEW Bailey Retreat Willow did the Dealer has to accept some responsibility . True the Dealer gave us our purchase price back under SOGA. But since then he has not budged an inch. We had to empty the caravan, we had to look after it with dehumidifiers travelling backwards and forwards from home,we lost out on the use of it ,also the insurance and the cancellation of our specially manufactured awning, Stress and considerable inconvience.
So it all comes down to this disabled retiree with wife having to go to the small claims court at the age of 68. I will have my day in court...Our North Wales paper is interested.Other publications have shown interest..It seems the Dealer and Bailey's of Bristol are Teflon Coated.... I will keep you informed...
