Now you've experienced the benefits of Dandy v canvas tenting, bet you can't wait to get back out there. You can't beat a good blow and some rain to emphasise the good points of Dandying in the average British summer. After all, anyone can camp in glorious sunshine.

hi , its a brown one ,made in 1982, when i bought it last year it hadn,t been used for a long time
i erected it and found that it had all the pots and pans /cutlery-even a full bottle of gas&2 spare wheels Smile the dandy has been well maintained too theres some loose screws here&there but thats no problem i can do any jobs on it myself
i tow it in my 2cv it struggles a bit up hill tho!
i just leave the car in 3rd gear mostly
i,ll post some pics soon when i find out how Embarassed

Well obviously the bicycle is the star, but look in at around about 33 seconds or so and it is to be seen that this man owns a Dandy also.
We need a Dandy equivalent to the Blue Peter Badge and one wants sending to Mr Hudspith immediately if not sooner.
