It is with some sadness that the Bailey Orion Blog has come to an end.

We have traded in our 440/4 for a new Bailey Unicorn 3 from YC Leisure which should be delivered next February/March so there is now a caravan shaped hole in our lives.

We were intending to carry on vanning further into winter than we had done previously but one or two health issues affecting both myself and SWMBO sadly prevented this so we have decided to call it a day for this year.

The blog of course will remain on the net for anyone who wishes to refer to it.

Just as an aside when we took the van to the dealers to have the part-ex confirmed,they found 28% damp in the rear right hand corner ( the toilet cassette side ) which has presumably come about since we had it serviced in September.I was told this was not unusual in this area for Orions so this may be worth keeping an eye on as the Orion range ages.

Many thanks to the people who have e-mailed me over the last three years and to everyone who has made the blog the success that it has been with just short of 73,000 hits.

You can't get rid of me as easily as that though as I will be creating a new Unicorn Cadiz blog sometime prior to delivery of the new van.

Cheerio for now.

For Sale..........Genuine Bespoke Bailey Bedding Set

Further to our ordering a new Unicorn we have for sale a genuine bespoke Bailey bedding set that is for the rear fixed bed on the Orion 430/4 ( corner cut off ).

It has only been used twice as we preferred to use the front bed.

It comprises of a quilt,quilt cover and two pillowcases.

There should be a purple runner with it that we can't find at the minute but if it turns up at some stage the buyer can have that as well.

We are asking £50 ( cost £199 ).

Because of the bulk of it would of course be preferable if someone could collect ( Wakefield,West Yorks ) but if anyone wants it posting I will get a price but I imagine it will be expensive.

Give me an e-mail if anyone is interested.
