    We have a sycamore – we used the table area for visitors to sleep for 10 days and have ended up with a sea saw – awful design, we went and bought a 20 pounds table from Attwools took the top off and fitted the 2 legs on clips to the underside of the table. I am surprised Bailey have not come up with a new design and replaced them all as they are awful once you have used as a bed,

  2. Helen Otoole says:

    I’ve owned a Sycamore from new had nothing but trouble from the table so can’t sit at it any more
    Need to know if anyone has had problems with them?

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi Helen, it’s worth trying to contact Bailey’s customer service team: [email protected] to see if they can help to resolve the problem – or to go back to your dealership.

  3. Mark Turley says:

    Little point in giving an insurance premium, you cannot fit an Alko axle lock to this caravan, its fitted with steel wheels.

    • Craig says:

      Thanks Mark
      You are correct, we’ll get that changed so we quote without the AL-KO Secure Wheel lock.

    Have owned a sycamore for 5 weeks now and absolutely love it. It feels so spacious compared to our previous caravans

    In defence of Bailey and Lady Bailey. We bought a Unicorn Almeria from them a year a go and have just had the first service. It is a fantastic van, wouldn’t change it for anything, apart from another Bailey. We cannot praise them enough for their assistance and attitude towards us from the start. We live in Sussex and are only too happy to return to them again and again.

  6. Tracey says:

    We have had our sycamore now for 4 wks and love everything about it, could not say anything bad about it, everything it offers suits us down to the ground

  7. Ian Kelman says:

    Having bought the first brand new (2010 model) Bailey Pegasus 2 berth caravan after caravanning for some 20 years I couldn’t wait to get rid of it. It was un-towable. The support from the Bailey and the supplier Lady Bailey was abysmal. When I told the supplier that I wanted rid of this I was told ‘Join the queue’. Would I buy another Bailey? Guess.
