What our clients say

  • This email is simply to say a big thank you for your help while we were on our way North in our lovely Bailey Series 3 Unicorn.
    We had a number of minor (big to us!!) issues which were troubling us, and you sorted them all out efficiently and graciously. We so appreciated the way you patiently answered all our questions and made sure we understood. Ordering in and sending to our home a small cover we had lost on our travels, was a much appreciated gesture.
    To all those Bailey travellers heading North from Brisbane we would certainly suggest you stop and meet this knowledgable and friendly guy – a credit to the team of Bailey Dealerships.
    Many thanks to you and all best wishes to your family.
    Warm wishes.

  • Just to let you know that we have settled into the caravan and are very happy with it. Thanks for the follow up service you provided, it was much appreciated and thanks also for the friendly way in which all business has been conducted.

    If we ever decide to change vans we will be back to see you again without any hesitation.

  • After researching for over 2 years we’ve hit the jackpot and absolutely loving our Elddis Avante 505 Caravan. Our first test trip away we landed in Kingscliff just over the border into NSW. As usual Kingscliff has gale force winds (whenever we are here) and being right on the coast we are impressed with how the van doesn’t rock with the breeze. The van rides extremely well behind a Land Rover Discovery 2. It’s everything and more than what we expected and the after sales support is only a phone call away! Thanks Duncan & Jayne

  • We are delighted to write a testimonial for Duncan and Jayne. We had seen these vans elsewhere but something stopped us from purchasing one until we met Duncan at Gympie. As soon as we met Duncan we knew we were on the right track. He was honest and friendly and had an excellent product. He only had one van in the yard at the time and it was in A1 condition. We loved it immediately. Duncan put no pressure on us to buy instead had all the time in the world to discuss the van with us. Jayne was equally as friendly and nothing was a problem. On our last visit to their yard they were replacing the front window on another van because they saw a small crack. From talking to Duncan you realise that he is particular with what vans he purchases and obviously sources the best vans available before shipping them to Australia. We wish Duncan and Jayne all the very best in their business ventures. Vince and Helen Hayes of Coolum Beach

  • Having owned and towed a “traditional” van we made the decision to change to a lightweight van because of their reported easy towing and economy of fuel consumption by the towing vehicle.

    We spent a great deal of time researching and looking at vans which fit this criteria. Our search led us to Duncan and Jayne who specialise in importing lightweight English vans. The quality of the vans they stock is excellent and we found just what we were looking for at a price we could afford! A bonus with these vans is the clever interior layout which offers so much in relatively small spaces. All the comforts of home without the housework!

    We have just returned from our second trip, an extensive journey around Southwest Queensland. To say the roads were a good test of how well our Coachman performed is an understatement! We are please to say it performed extremely well and we are delighted. It didn’t disappoint!

    After having dealt with a good cross section of dealers during our search it was refreshing to find someone like Duncan whose knowledge of his product is excellent. This, coupled with friendly and obliging service from both Duncan and Jayne made our whole buying experience a pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble and they are always available to answer any questions we may have – wonderful after sales service, a rarity these days! We would no hesitation in dealing with them again in the future.

    Thank you both. We are now planning our next trip!

  • We purchased a small (middle-of-range) British Elddis Avante 362 caravan at J & D Caravans and took delivery at the beginning of the year. Now that we have been out for our first camping ‘adventure’ with the caravan we felt compelled to share our purchasing and other experiences.

    Firstly the service, advice and courtesy shown by Duncan, not to mention his professionalism and down to earth honesty, were second to none. Everything he said proved to be true and his vast amount of knowledge (all shared with a great generosity of spirit) made our first caravanning experience absolutely effortless.

    It is worth noting here that Duncan even took on the very difficult challenge of properly wiring our Peugeot and presented us with a very neat and professional installation at the end of our site seeing and pub lunch trip around Gympie. We were very grateful for Duncan’s generous offer to loan us his car for this purpose.

    Secondly, the 2002 12’ caravan itself presented like new and everyone who has come around to see it has been very impressed. Most were amazed by the design (“and it even has a bathroom?”), quality and features, especially those who had already bought lesser equipped, bigger and heavier brands of caravans at far greater cost elsewhere.

    On the trip, the van towed surprisingly well behind our four cylinder diesel Peugeot 307 both on the highway and along narrow twisty, hilly roads (yes we were erroneously guided by ‘sat nav’). Also, manoeuvring around our garage and at the camp site on grass proved to be no problem at all.

    Finally, we thought we would never buy a caravan. However, we researched a lot, looked at alternatives around Brisbane, spoke to importers and then finally made our way up to Gympie.
    All we can say is that it is well worth the trip.

  • Hi Duncan and Jane,
    We are thrilled with our new van, and more than happy with the service you provide.
    We dont have a large towing vehicle (VW Transporter 2.5 diesel), and wanted a light weight van. This Swift caravan, (and all the vans we saw at your yard) fitted the bill……it tows beatifully……….also the price tag was very attractive. The fit out, and gas/electric appliances are excellent
    We needed a van with toilet and shower, and good heating, as we will be touring in Victoria and Tasmania a lot, visiting friends and relatives, so this is just what we need.
    Happy customers

  • Hi Guys ,
    As you know we have just returned from a trip to Canberra as a “test run” for the van.
    It is the best finished van we have ever owned — easiest to tow– with amazing fuel economy for a van this size .All the things you assured us it would be.
    In our search for a new/secondhand van we have meet with a lot of exaggerated promises and dare I say absolute “bullshit”
    We are grateful for your honest opinion and dedication to getting “the van” we wanted the way we wanted it.
    Be assured we will stay in touch — and brag of our travels.
    Good luck in the future .

  • Hi Duncan & Jayne
    I wanted to let you know just how much I love my caravan! Everything about it has impressed me, and everyone who has been to see it. I think one of the major things that I – and all others notice – is the amazing amount of space which has been created in a smallish caravan, and the superb finishes of all the fittings. Naturally the toilet / shower is terrific. Now that you have put the aircon in I am in total heaven with it! (I have to say that Bastie loves it too!!!). I have been very proud to tell people where I purchased the caravan and the exceptional value that it is.

  • Hi Duncan, Just a few words in appreciation of the jobs you did on my caravan. I particularly appreciated that fact, as my little old Viscount Nipper is an Aussie van, because I did not realise that you also did repairs to others other than your imported models. Your service to the van saved me from some very worrying times as you repaired damaged brakes with a bearing ready to come apart, plus new tyres. My new fridge is a dream .Plus the other minor jobs done as well. The new vinyl pop top which you contracted out, leaked at the zippers the first time it was used in rain. Luckily it was just a matter of dropping the top down till I got home and came to see you. Without any hesitation you went out of your way to find out just why they leaked. It appeared that the guy who installed the new vinyl did not seal the machine holes. The new sealed zippers now have no leaks, thank you for going out of your way to fix the problem. All jobs were done with care and attention to details something not many tradesmen seem to worry about nowadays. So thank you for jobs well done and I can certainly recommend your work and the very reasonable prices charged for it. Thanking you very sincerely , Chris Corbridge. From Kybong south of Gympie.
