No contest, I was lovely and warm. Even some of the die hard campers who sneered at me not sleeping in the tents, were converted on the evening it snowed! Everyone wanted a tour round the warm tent and I would love to tell you I wasn't even a little bit smug...but I'd be lying! lol!

We've set up to sniggers from campers with modern tents ...... never bothered us because we knew that when bad weather hit we'd be the ones sniggering and we we're on many occasions, it's then that people bother to notice how amazing our Dandy's are.
Could have something to do with the fact we sit in t-shirts and crank the under floor heater up lol!

lol! lol! , Q the underfloor Gas heater i take it you can not keep it on all night for safety reasons yer???.

Oh a dandy is the camper to feel all cosy and warm.
Rain or shine, or snowing time makes no never mind.
A Dandy is so cossy and warm even in the wildest storm.
And far warmer than a tent no matter what the fabric, a dandy is PVC fantastic.
So here we go with scouts and cubs in tow, showing the dandy is more magic that harry poter camping and the way to go.

I only noticed because I bought some cheap reading glasses

Roll on Tuesday.

Love the poem! Sadly my Dandy doesn't have the underfloor heater... Sad so I used an oil fired heater. It was turned right down, but even before I switched it on it was warmer in Ruby 2 than any of the tents and it keeps the heat in. Ahh bliss. I believe if they're working properly, the underfloor heaters are fine. Very Happy
