Have your say

MORE than 130 owners of Bailey caravans have been treated to an all-expenses-paid three-day weekend in SA's Barossa Valley.

Bailey Australia footed the entire bill for this year's Bailey Owners Group's BASE 2018 get-together at Tanunda. Some members reportedly travelled nearly 3000-km to attend the event which featured a James Bond-themed dinner and a visit to the National Motor Museum at Birdwood, all courtesy of the caravan manufacturer.

"It was the largest event we have ever run," Bailey's marketing assistant Siobhan Capuana told Caravanning News.

"Customers travelled from all across Australia, many putting their names down on the list for next year's event."

Meanwhile, group member Dianne O'Donnell wrote on Facebook: "We had a great time and we have made some special friends whom we hope to keep in contact with and maybe catch up on our travels around this great country of ours,"

Caravans at Bailey Australia's BASE2018 gatheringMs Capuana said 62 Bailey caravans were at the event, including 35 UK models and 27 Australian ones.

Besides herself, the Bailey Australia team included Adrian (managing director), Lance (national marketing manager), Craig (national sales manager), Jovin (design engineer) and Clare (after-sales and warranty).

Buses took caravan owners on a wine tours in the region, visiting the iconic Chateau Yaldara in the southern Barossa town of Lyndoch.

They were treated to a historic tour of the grounds and a wine sampling.

Then it was on to the majestic Chateau Tanunda, built in the late 1880s and home to some of the earliest plantings of vines in the Barossa Valley.

They toured the grounds, wine cellars and enjoyed another a wine tasting.

The gala dinner which saw attendees dressed in black and white for the James Bond theme was the highlight of the weekend.

Ms Capuana said guests were "dressed to impress", with outfits from all the James Bond movies.

After tucking into a two-course meal, they were entertainment with a James Bond trivia with all 19 tables competing.

"Next year's destination is yet to be announced but rumour has it we're heading somewhere warmer," she quipped.
