Hiya,
I will be honest she's not perfect, the main issue for people being her lack of a Dandy Kitchen, but we have replaced that with a trailer tent one which can also be used in the awning if you prefer which you can't do with a regular Dandy kitchen unit. She also has some scuffs on her bodywork, but nothing to major and will probably need a new damper next year
She is winterised, but doesn't have an underfloor heater. The awning we bought off Helen who had adapted it to fit her Designer before she got a Dandy awning.
Having said all that she's a nice little unit, please feel free to ask Helen Mike or Eilis on here who have all seen her what she's like. We were ideally looking for £1100 for her, but I'd happily sell her to a forum member for £1000. There's more pictures of her on our for sale thread on this forum, but if you want any more info or want to come and see her just ask.

That is really kind of you to take so much off your asking price. I will ask the hubby to have another look at our budget and get back to you a.s.a.p. If I can bend his arm we may pay you a visit to have a look at minnie but it is quite a distance so will let you know. Question

I was hoping to pay £700 tops so looks like I will have to wait for a bargain to come my way. I'm sure the right one will come my way

Bigger you will manage but the colour, insulation and heater might be a bit hard to package together for £700. I'd set a limit of £800 for whatever I could get, then suddenly got lucky.

Spent a couple of hundred on it so far and it now needs a new damper so I'll adjust the brakes and bearings at the same time.

Then it's getting round to the gas struts.

Not bought new tyres since buying either. Cheap hobby camping?

We got gas struts fited on monday 15th oct, in Stoke , Realy nice guy he fited struts and new stainless steel rivets and showed me a new way of erecting the dandy, and still only charged me £200 for every thing & inc the struts.
He also showed me a few things i had not noticed that needed work, and gues what he fixed some there and then.
Richard loves dandies . He alters them for disabled persons to use,
