Hi and welcome to the Dandy campers, great choice, depending on what car you have you may find you could tow a larger Dandy than you think

I see in that case any of then will do , you will be paying extra if you go for one with the heater in the floor, as for the insulated wall they are very good but don't dismiss ones that are not , ours does not have it and its not a problem at all and we camp all the year round , We don't have under floor heater we just use a electric heater and its as warm as toast in her , So now its up to you and what sort of money you wish to spend ,Most smaller cars can tow the 4/5 its when you get to the Dandy 6 and the hightside that you need a bigger car but saying that the highside is 750kg max towing weight

How old are the boys ? I bet a teardrop in similar paintwork looks wicked with that ...... if it was me and they were old enough I'd buy a tent and stick it in the teardrop for travelling then stick them in that Twisted Evil lol!

For going to shows etc when you can't have EHU then you'd be wise to go for insulation and underfloor heater too ...... now that is being spoiled and no wonder they prefer it to a tent Laughing 

Age doesn't matter much so long as they've been looked after, I've seen newer ones and older ones and condition depends on how they've been treated over the years.

Hi and  andyl

If you want a wee Dandy to go with that smart bright yellow car of yours we reckon a little orange 4 would look good. Very Happy

Sorry Phoenix isn't for sale but would look good with it. Smile

I think an orange would look fantastic, you could always spray the tub yellow with flames What a Face 

I've had a big caravan for the past two years, don't get too comfortable in your Dandy when you get one ..... we didn't let ours go when we got the van and ended up having a few days in the Dandy in August, the Caravan went as soon as we got home lol!
