    This is poor. Bailey have known about this weakness at that point for ages. They really should have sorted it out by now.

  2. Tom Lucas says:

    Bought a new Unicorn Model Vigo March 2014 very nice van a few problems dealer was excellent . Now it has to go back to the Manufacturer it has a a crack above the door this was noticed in October they cant get it back to April .

  3. Steve says:

    Bought the Valencia 2 new in 2013, had a few niggles which were rectified without fuss at the first service, the Alde heating its fantastic, once you get your head around the controls, generally we love the van, my wife in particular likes the extra work surface in the kitchen area and storage space.

  4. Alan Humphries says:

    Have put our Barca to bed for winter after one full season 2 minor problems seal around under bed door leaked and toilet roll holder fell off all repaired by Dinmore Caravans and ready for next April up to North Wales, really looking forward to it, one of the best caravans on the road can fully recommend this one.

  5. Dave Young says:

    Bought our new Unicorn Cordoba October 2013. Water pump a bit noisy, But very pleased with our van, heating system is great, temperature was -4c during November. Beds very comfortable Rear singles could be a little wider, lighting system very modern No problems with any equipment…Just love this van been caravanning 36 years….

    • Great to hear the positive feedback on the Bailey Dave – sounds very cosy for the winter! We’d encourage other blog users to share their experiences of the Unicorn – just add a comment.

    We bought the Barcelona 1 in April 2013 to replace a Lunar and the best you can buy, a wonderful caravan, bed as comfortable as any, the Alde heating is superb as is the tall fridge/ Freezer we’ll done Bailey.

  7. Ian Henderson says:

    I have had a Unicorn 1 for the past year and covered almost 5,000 miles. The lock on the battery compartment was fitted upside down and if I had not spotted this, the battery was in danger of falling out. The grab handles are a poor design and a potential source if water ingress (I notice they have been redesigned on the mark 2 Baileys). I have had to remove the spare wheel and carry it inside up front to get the nose weight right for my tow car (BMW X3). A comfortable caravan in all seasons with an excellent washroom.

    we have just not long got are new unicorn 2 barcelona and i must say that it was the best thing that we done as are other caravan was good but this one is just out of this world

  9. yvonne says:

    we have bought the new bailey unicorn 2 and we love it. the best part is the extra work surface and cupboard.

  10. Jackfrost says:

    We have just had our Unicorn Barcelona serviced and have been told that the led lights on the front grab rails are not covered by the 3 year warranty so we’ve had to pay for a new front offside led to be fitted, the problem we have now is this new led strip is a yellow colour where the original nearside led strip is a crisp bluey white, this makes the caravan look stupid with different colour leds. I complained to United British Caravans who told me the only thing they can do is fit another yellow led to the front nearside to make them even, so I’ve got to go from a crisp bluey white led to a horrible yellow led and I have to pay for the privilege!! Time to write to Bailey I think, leds should not fail after 2 years and about 8 caravan outings!!

    we bought in june 2012 a pegasus rimini its lovely non flowery upholstery a butler sink in bathroon which is a nice size pleased with van this is not our first bailey I like the cupboard space that you dont have with the new huge front window models.

  12. Linda Owen says:

    We bought a New Valencia Feb 2011 & didn’t notice till we got it home that one of the windows was leaking its been in & out of the workshop ever since & is still leaking we took it out this weekend & when we arrived on site there was water on the wooden sill again, when I closed the blind later the inside of the window frame fell off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Phil and Bev Tarr says:

    We have owned our Barcelona for just over 12 months and we love it. No complaints so far, would recommend any one to buy one

  14. lesleyand dave leach says:

    we are proud owners off a valencia 1 the only disapointment we found with was that there was no light meaning led round the bed which we have put in and makes it more stuning . the othe r disapointing thing was the sink bowl scratching the sink but we are very please over all

  15. rob wilkinson says:

    i am the proud owner of a valencia only fault i have found is that the tap on the belfast sink does not swing round otherwise a brilliant van for all seasons although a dvd on setting the central heating would also be a great asset
