Hello all!

Yet another tale of someone having their leg lifted buying a secondhand caravan. I have a 2005 Bailey Pageant Provence, lovely caravan, in what i thought was a lovely condition. well from the outside...

On the plus side we have had several trips out this year with our 16 month old daughter who loves the caravan and we have had great time too.
One evening away I could feel a draft on the bed, where I've been leaning up against the wall watching tv the front window box has started to come away from the wall!!

Last trip out i was putting the caravan legs down and i couldn't pull the jack handle out. The outer aluminium extrusion was preventing me pulling it out. The stabiliser was pushing through the floor, and the top board of the sandwich has cracked from rot water ingress. (you can just see the blue of the insulation in the picture)

This utter pup of a caravan now needs very precious time repairing the rot.


The walls (passenger car side?) was double skinned from a previous patch up

The wood that curves at the top is rotten and needs to be replaced

The front box and front windows has shaken nearly to bits.

Once these repairs are complete we are planning on keeping this heap until the bitter end

So any ideas on how to repair the floor?

Welcome to the forum.

This site could be of use to you in your endeavours. Good luck with it all and keep us posted on progress.


Curious as to why you have that link after the last pic.

XVI yes?

Hello!

Yes I�ve had a good look through that website.

I’m waiting for the wizard to come along! I’m thinking cut the wood out and use a delamination kit to bond the top to the bottom. But I’d like to see other people’s opinions

It�s nice to see others how they have done repairs.

No idea as to the link. I didn�t put it there? Could be the photo hosting website I used.

Double skinning might suggest a previous factory repair. I've seen Swift do this too.

Is that right?

Does anyone have a easy way of stripping the hardboard from the insulation?

Yes i believe i have, looks like both side windows, awning rails and front window rail (cracks in the front panel too)

I need to replace one of the floor boards, but dont know which adhesive to use to glue the plywood to the polystyrene (solvent free of course)

Cant believe there is this much rot in a 2005 caravan...
