Dandy 6 late 70s version, great internals and canvas, resortation required to frame

Post by jjcan on Sun 13 Jul 2014, 9:28 pm

Hi, we have a dandy 6, late 70s version with brown walls. We have used the tent a few times, but it is in need of some restoration. The canvas is all great, roof is all in tact, inside is great with all furnishing, electrics etc, but some rivets throughout the camper have come undone, therefore the frame holding the sides and roof isnt as study as it should be. The jobs involve welding rivets to straighten the frame, i spoke to our local steel fabricators and they would have done it, so i guess you can go to a local company or to riva dandy who are a specialist.
Also the hinges holding the end sides next to the beds have broken, it still works but they are not hinged to the bottom, again this would require new hinges being welded on. We were going to take the trailer to a welding company for them to redo everything, but with 2 kids under 2 and a new home we just don't have the time to spare to restore to its best. I have loads of photos, please email me if you require as im struggling to upload. We are based in glossop near manchester.
Great opportunity to have a great camper once its given the slight tlc it needs......sad to let it go.
Please feel free to email me with any questions

Hello pictures would be a great idea. You can email them to dandycampers (at) live.com and if you then tell us here you have sent them someone can upload them for you. tell us on this thread we don't visit our email often. You're prevented from uploading for the first 7 days after joining.

Sad you have waited to the point of despair for your Dandy some of the jobs sound quite easy. Are the broken hinges these? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] None of the hinge work should need welding it's just rivets. Loads of photos would be good Brown dandys ran from 1980 or possibly late 70s to late 1980s and there are lots of differences that affect their desirability. Also pictures of what is broken help prospective buyers understand what is on offer.
Also what extras does it have; gas floor heater, insulated walls (double thickness like the roof) an awning. Even good brown Dandy 6 go for a song so I'd not hold out for a lot but it's a crime to see one end up on the tip.

It won't be me uploading you photos as my laptop is off for repairs in the morning.
