WITH SHOW SEASON finished for 2012, Bailey Caravans has announced changes to its pricing and warranty offerings.


Prices are up an average of 1.5% across the board, putting the price of the cheapest Bailey Orion 400-2 up to £12995. The mandatory dealer delivery charge is also increased, up by £20 to £565. 


Warranty wound back

As well as price increases, the Bristol-based builder also announced changes to the standard warranty offering.


The industry-leading transferable 10-year body warranty reduces to six-years. Four extra years of coverage are available at additional cost of £189 at the time of purchase to restore 10 years of protection for those that require it.   


Pricing remains unchanged on the new Retreat and Orion 450-6 and 530-6 models introduced at the Motorhome, Caravan and Camping show last week. 


The changes are applicable to all caravans built from Monday 20th February 2012. Models built prior to this retain the previous servicing and warranty arrangements. This includes a limited number of models in dealer stock and on demonstration fleets across the country, which could find themselves in demand as canny buyers act fast to avoid the levy and shorter standard warranty.
