Damp In Bailey Senator Wyoming Series 5
Posted 27 January 2009 - 05:20 PM
The front and the back panel are cracked apparently - due to fault on model. Wallpaper bubbling terrible in washroom.
We haven't got the money to do the repairs, we can't sell it in the state that it is in, the caravan service people said that it is awful and even if they repair it you will be able to see it's been repaired it really needs to go back to Bailey,
What shall i do, i'm devestated, our van is so clear and we hardly ever use it

Plus by your own admission you have let it fester.
You should have asked the dealer to collect (for a small charge) or even used a mobile NCC appproved fitter. It would have been a lot cheaper than £4,500.00.

I'd get other quotes for the repair though - £4500 is a hell of a lot of money.

Welcome to the forum and I hope you manage to sort something out. The T&T bunch are a friendly lot - honestly.

This is obviously not what you want to hear but I reckon that given you have missed an inspection you are now out of warranty so an appeal to Baileys better nature in light of all the problems that others have had with these panels would be the best way forward.

Have you missed the annual service by many months ? my local Bailey dealer tells me you are allowed 6 weeks max past your service date and after that they are not obliged to honour the warranty should any claim arise .
Its a pity you didn't get the dealer or a third party to collect it would have saved a lot of hassle.
p.s hope you can get it resolved somehow without costing you to much

We have a Series 5 Louisiana and have had no problems with damp at all....When we were on the hunt for a new van the Wyoming was top of our list. That was untill we had a look in the washroom !
The main feature that put us off the Wyoming was that the shower had no plastic enclosure (later models have a plastic lined shower compartment), which meant the water was allowed to contact the interior wall. Athough the wall boards/paper should be waterproof a small nick/crack or bad join will cause havoc and cause damp issues.
If you can prove that the damp is being caused from INSIDE the 'van, i.e. a design fault, then Bailey will be more sympathetic.
Our only issue with our van was the extrior door blind catch snapped at just over 2 years old. We proved that it was a design fault and Bailey agreed to replace the entire door under warranty. Blinds are only guaranteed for 12 months. They have now altered the design of the one piece door so that you can re-adjust the tension of the blind, whereas before it was a complete sealed unit.
