Collecting 'new' Dandy tomorrow AM - Tyre inch gap to arch...is it ok?

I'm collecting the 'new' Dandy Discovery tomorrow morning. The seller just got back letting me know that the gap between the wheel and the arch is 1 inch and the distance between the bottom of the trailer and the ground is 10 inches. Does this sound ok?

Measured mine today. There is approx. 2 inches clear from the wheel to the wheel arch and the bottom of the trailer is 12 inches from the ground.

Now mine is a 2005 dark blue designer and I have a feeling they raised the tow ball height on these compared with the light blue ones.

Thank you, yes I picked her up ok. I didn't get a chance to look at the awning (no space in their drive), so I'm feeling a bit anxious about that. But she seems ok. Just needs a small repair to the the top of one of the walls.

She towed ok, but does seem a bit low for speed bumps...which I avoided!

Hi,

all older Dandys suspension will have some loss of height but so long as the tyre wear is even and it isn't touching the arches you'll be okay. If your concerned about the height you could always add some spacers to raise it. You can buy spacers from indespension or easily make your own, they sit between the chassis and suspension.
