    Has anybody bought a new Bailey and had a towbar/reversing camera/second battery fitted?

    I have not been impressed with their Customer service team reply to my email asking about their recomendations!!

    I imagine they would refer you to their dealer network to carry out this work. Mine installed a multitude of extras including a second battery and a rear view camera. I went to Watling Towbars at St. Albans for my towbar.

    Agreed Watling towbars a great company to deal with. Give them a ring and they will advise.

    Any chance of knowing what the costs were? It might make me go for a different van! Looking at a 540;-)

    Happy to do that @Noggin but the costs of what, the towbar or all the extras?

    Edit: You're a long way from St Albans but if you're down this way looking at vans they're a good bet, otherwise there's Armitage at Ferrybridge near the A1/M62 junction.

    We ordered the 2nd battery from new, no tow bar. Reversing camera plus Pioneer Radio/satnav (reversing camera uses the Pioneer screen) and alarm system upgrade to Thatcham Cat 1 was fitted by a company in Perth. superb service and good price.

    Has your dealer not been any help?

    We've had a reversing camera & Fiamma sun blind fitted from new. There was already space for a second battery which we had. Our dealer also put 2 full gas bottles in at no extra charge which we had never seen before!
