Manuals for our caravan

We purchased our Bailey (Aussie made) Rangefinder Comet in late 2017 from Canterbury Caravans in Melbourne and took delivery in April 2018.

One thing we soon discovered was there was no manual on our to use our caravan, just the manuals for the appliances and fittings as provided by the respective manufacturers.

When we checked with Bailey about a manual on how to use our caravan we were told “a manual for each model is being created” and 2 years later when Bailey Australia closed down there was still no user guide/manual for their caravan models. So the links below are to the appliance and fittings we did receive.

PLEASE NOTE – The documents presented in the tables below may OR may not be suitable for all Bailey Caravans. We take no responsibility for any issues or damage which may arise from anyone using these manuals. We totally recommend that if you are unsure about these being the “correct manuals” for you, that you contact the respective supplier of these appliances and/or parts.
