Bailey Caravans Terms and Conditions
The Bailey Warranty Cover set out above is offered subject to the following simple terms and conditions: Cover 1. During the term of the Warranty Cover, subject to these terms and conditions, Bailey will, through an Authorised Service Centre, at its option repair or replace all parts and components of the caravan that are included in the Warranty Cover and which suffer a defect in manufacture or workmanship. An Authorised Service Centre means either Bailey itself, a Bailey approved retailer or a Bailey approved service centre. Any part which is replaced becomes the property of Bailey. Any replacement parts are covered for the unexpired term of the warranty cover. Term 2. The initial duration of the Bodyshell Integrity Guarantee is six (6) years and the duration of the Manufacturer’s Warranty is three (3) years, in both cases starting from the original purchase date of the vehicle. It is a condition of the warranty that an annual service is performed on the vehicle in accordance with the service plan. Failure to comply with this term will invalidate the warranty. 3.
