Hi all,

I recently bought a 2008 Bailey Senator. Lovely caravan but some of the things on it are... a little dated. I'm thinking of taking the clock out and replacing it with something with a bit more functionality like a Google Nest Hub. Flush mounted with a wall mount would be pretty cool. You would need internet for most of its features but thats ok Ive got a 5g router for the caravan. Even if theres no internet itll still funtion as a clock so nothing lost. If anyones interested in this little project I can post a how to up once ive done it.

So far ive run a spur up to the cupboard for power. Next I need to get the wall mount for the Google. Then take the wooden board off the clock is mounted to and cut a bigger hole for the wall mount. Thatd be about it tbh. Plug it in away you go!

Part of me agrees with you. But the other part likes the retro look of the original clock. If you go ahead, will you be able to do it so that it can be put back in the future?

Good luck with it either way.

The clock doesnt work anyway. Before it completely died it was a bit loud. I know some people enjoy that but not me.

You could quite easily put it back how it was. Its only a bit of ply covered in a fake suede material so I'd just make another one.

The beauty of caravanning is putting your own stamp on things .Our mods are personal and make life more cosy. For us I rewired the TV aerial system. We now have two TVs and Sky. Suits us. The shower has been modified too. If you like the change of clock go for it๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

And I remember you for most of a day, at Waterrow, trying to set up your Sattelite reciever, until the taste of a pint got the better of you. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Fantastic. And thanks for all the pictures they show what is possible.

Can you explain the apparent gap at the bottom? Does it have a purpose?
