Just For Information:Oven Shelf

SWMBO wants an additional shelf for the Spinflo Duplex oven in the Orion and I was placed on this Earth to comply with her wishes.

The Bailey Parts site showed two different shelves for the Orion,one was the "Orion Duplex Oven Shelf,Part Number 1040399 at about £26 or so" and the other was "Oven Shelf 370mm,Part Number 1040072 at about £10";both plus P&P.

Not knowing which to order I contacted Bailey who said the former was the correct one ( the dearest one of course ) and they have removed the other from their site.

  1. Hi Ian
    I could not help but notice in your mosquito pictures is the Fire extinguisher adjacent to door
    Can you explain how this has been fitted .
    i.e to the external wall, OR to the internal wall of the side of the cabinet and did you have to reinforce any fixings ??

    1. Paul,

      The fire extinguisher is fixed to the "wooden" side of the cabinet .

      The dealer fixed it for us and two bolts go through the fitment with a nut on the other end.

      Sounds ugly but it looks OK.

  2. Hi Ian ,
    Another issue or improvement you may like to share with your readers is on the underside of the cabinets that overhang the sink an hob , I have sealed with silicone (Clear) to completely seal under the units as when steam is given off from the stove and kettle it is easily wiped clean and reduces the risk of condensation into the endge of the wood.

  3. Hi Ian , sorry me again.

    I over filled the toilet flush system and found water had penetrated inside and appeared on the floor of the end bathroom . My message to readers and owners of the Orion is dont over fill the WC fluch system , from memory it only takes about 5 ltrs of water . Dont fill the system untill it over flows outside as you may have a problem .

    1. Paul,

      Don't apologise,the more comments the better.

      I think the flush takes 8 litres,well on the 440/4 anyway.

  4. Hi Ian .

    Sorry about this, thought I would share with you and your readers.

    We purchased 6 Plastic tubs from awell known Pound Stretcher shop (hint hint) these tubs fit perfectly under the seats and are very handy for the stroage of items during travel ,the tubs are 3x for £10 including lids not a bad price. Ther are the deeper type rather than the under bed type if that makes sense and measure approx 17" x 13" x 10" high.
    2x fitted in the front seat storage area adjacent the water heater and a 2 in the back seat area on the 440-4 and a further 2 in the seat area behind the TV shelf.
    The storage boxes make it easy fro removing items when the van is emptied for any reason.

    Hope this is of help to new starters with caravans.

  5. Hello Paul, Thats a good Tips about the Tubs.
    We also have 2xTubs under the front seats (430), works really well + no fear about stuff sliding around. Another + is knowing the weight and balance of the Van when towing and using Tubs helps.
    After a year with the orion I must say it tows lovely, much better than out first van which was lighter and only 12ft.
