    Hi, tested the new,van over last few days, no major problems, just couple of niggles.
    Does anyone have a V-Line that can post a picture if how the end kitchen cupboard should close? It's a sliding door with a magnetic strip down the edge of the sliding door section.
    We assume it then connects to something on the edge of the frame to close, only the frame has nothing on it, no magnet or metal so it doesn't stay closed.
    Have contacted dealer but they are very slow in responding.
    If it's something simple can add something ourselves.
    Hopefully someone can post a pic to indicate what is missing?

    Thanks

    Bailey caravans fitted this sort of magnet to bi-fold shower doors. there should be a strip on the edge of the frame. If you go to Bailey Parts Direct they still supply this item in 6mm and 12mm widths. Warranty should cover you any way. Hope you are enjoying your new van.

    Hi thanks, funny enough after much chasing the dealer has just sent us a strip of magnet which looks like you just pull off the paper back and stick on the frame, not yet been up to van to try but hopefully it's the correct stuff.

    Thanks Lin

    Hi Lin, That's a good quick result. Yes that is how it fitted to the shower door and it was very strong magnet. All the best Terry.
