Dandy Dart Bed size ? Empty Dandy Dart Bed size ?

Post by Rik Shaw on Tue 28 Aug 2012, 8:31 pm

Hi all.
First i,d like to thank all contributors for so much info
( thanks Mike I,ve printed out Things to look out for when buying used)
i,m finding it very useful. and to prime myself with knowledge while on our quest for seeking out a dandy .. we have at least decided on a Dandy Dart
1999 +

now looking to purchase ..

is there any difference between light or dark Blue Model apart from colour
as I did read the newer model (Dark blue) was not as well made


But main Question is, can someone give any measurements of bed sizes for the dart please .

thanks Rick..

Rick cant be sure of the bed size for the dart but think they are all the same,will look into it and come back if no one answers,the dark blue are very nice and i have never owned one there have been remarks that they are not as well built as the pale blue and earlier units,think this is due to trying to save money with the materials used but you could do with the opinion of a owner who moved onto a dark blue from a light blue.

Hi Rick and welcome to the forum, I'm fairly confident the bed sizes are all the same. Dandy Dart Bed size ? 1066248140

The 1991 Dandy catoulouge lists the beds on the rear entry Dandys as 76" by 46" for the "bed side and 44" for the settee side.
Destinys (lowside) are 73" by 48" both sides.

Can't find a listing for bed sizes of the beds on the 2007 brochure but courtesy of the Yahoo Dandy owners group and their files we have a review by Camping And Caravanning who listed the Dart's beds as 198cm which equals 77.95" by 118cm = 46.46" and 112cm = 44.09"

No listing for the Destiny and Dimension was found but I think we debated the width of side entry Dandys in Endecay's first posts. Feel free to check those.

If Camping and Caravanning ever checked the dimensions or if not where they got the dimensions (small d) from who knows.

Here is their piece it may be easier to read using "ctrl" and "+" to expand the size "ctrl" and "0" to normalise.

Did late Dandys have settees on both sides?

to get Dandy's with awnings now are becoming rare although you would not have to use it as you see allot of the others 1) might snap your arm off to buy it off you 2) they use lighter weight awnings to fit the Dandy's either way they are great to have for extra room
