Hi Graham. Only been out in my Dandy twice since I got it, due to unforseen family circumstances, but myself, THE Wife and the four kids absolutely lovin' it. Hopefully away in the bank hols, then in Oct. Can't believe they don't make em any more. They are Genius.
Hope you get the one you want. Took us ages, but got there in the end. Happy Dandying!

Welcome Graham! Another returnee to Dandying! There are plenty of diehards who have stuck with Dandys once they've got them but there are also so many that have returned, having tried other things. In itself this must say something about how good Dandys are.

It's a nice looking Dandy and comes with lots of accessories, winterised but the awning isn't a Dandy awning. They do have a very good reputation though and I've seen older Dandy's go for quite a bit more. Smile

In that case I would wait for one with an awning to come up .... otherwise you could wait years for the awning to match Very Happy

You could buy an older cheaper one to use while you find what your looking for and then sell that on What a Face

Is it or has it been on eBay recently?
There may be one doing the rounds that one previous viewer was not to keen on.
Any details or photos?

The only time age matters with a Dandy is if you have a particular colour preference Very Happy

Can't see any problem then.
It's a long complex story(even for me) about the one I'm dubious about.
I'll PM you the add it was last sold on.
