New 2013 riva dandy trailer tent and folding camper for sale thread

Post by mike on Thu 27 Dec 2012, 10:35 am

A few days early but never mind

It doesn't feel like 12 months since i started the 2012 dandy for sale thread but it is and here is the 2013 thread to post links ect in,a word of caution though last year in the first two or three months as well as good dandys coming up for sale there was quiet a lot of rubbish,i think the owners of bad dandys think they will get them on ebay while there arnt many to choose from.
There are lots of good dandys out there and quiet a few will come up for sale so be patient until yours comes along.

If your looking for your first dandy then your heading in the right direction,the amount of rain we have who wants to dry canvas on there return home,not me for one.

Nine days left so I see it raising more than the £159.00 that is bid so far.
As they say they have it for sale elsewhere I might consider a quick viewing and offer.
Delta not insulated but with heater,(?) Dandy awning and lightweight awning.

In their position I might have kept the lightweight awning for the Destiny they are buying.

Dependant on price, if your paying enough you should get both heater and insulation but if the price was right and I could only have one it would be a heater.

I sort of know what you mean I got a sense of Deja Vu form it particularly pic 4 looking like archive but on reflection I don't think I was looking properly. I'm not saying I'm some sort of guru but I tend to remember photographs (or more likely I remember the ones I remember)and I've spent hours going through previous for sale photos to check things out when I think I remember stuff. The first thing is the check curtains but then the little plaque above the door finally of course it's been re upholstered.
Now if you do remember any of these features I bow to your memory.

Once upon a time I asked about writing down details because it's only the stuff on eBay that is stored the items on Preloved or Gumtree disappear into the either. Your preference was not to list details as you like the ad listing to be only be visible to members.

As photos are only visible to members perhaps we might choose to place a few photos on each ad?
Only thing is I presume it will be a lengthy process of copying the photo and then hosting it as I assume the "Copy image URL" option will mean that the photo on here would disappear at the same time the advert does.(So "Copy image URL" OK for eBay?) Anyone with technical knowledge know about this?

I'll start the ball rolling.

Looking again although i feel i have seen them before the one that stands out the most is the awning one and it is a different size to the rest so perhaps its a borrowed Very Happy picture.

For new members.

An absolute steal if all those things for that price but things on craigslist often are.

Feel free to email but the story goes that the camper are either in the north of Scotland or the owners are out of the country.

Simple bottom line you pay cash when picked up, no bank drafts, western union nor pay pal. No deposits either just cash. Yes they can have it moved from Scotland for less than it costs you in fuel one way. There is always a reason why it needs to be a money transfer actually no. There is never any reason good enough to do a money transfer.
This is not just Craigslist but can appear on eBay, Gumtree or Preloved.

Of course this could be genuine, go on send an email nothing lost but be careful!

This sounds ok for the price but any one after a under floor heater it would be a decent buy if you removed the heater and sold it on.

I've seen that picture of it with the plant pots in front before somewhere.

I guess if you remove the heater you end up with a hole in the floor to fill.

He might be a bit mistaken about it being insulated and the awning is non standard. Brown and cream but if anything other than a shed it should be worth it.

New ones on Gumtree

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This has been advertised elsewhere for £1,200. Options, it was either overpriced or only me who reads their ads?
From that ad. It has a dark blue interior. If that is the current Riva one or an earlier transition?
Key photos so we remember if it does the rounds.
