Recently purchased Designer.

Post by Aeronk on Fri 26 Oct 2018, 10:38 am

Purchased our designer a couple of months ago.  Done a few jobs on her and been out in it just the once so far.  Heres a list of jobs done;

Changed side board hinges
Changed rivets in bed catches
Added home made saddle brackets
Changed 12v wiring
Changed transformer
Added fuse board for 12v system
Changed  one 13 amp socket for double USB type
Added separate USB sockets
Added shelf over kitchen
Changed suspension
Changed jockey wheel
Changed breakaway cable
Changed gas hose
Changed door lock barrel
Changed door retainer
Changed transit cover bungee

I suppose the biggest job was the suspension change but all the rest were minor maintenance jobs just to tidy her up.

And a selection of photos used by the seller to advertise her, with some titles added by me;

That looks really good. The awning fits well and follows the roof line nicely so the door should open without hitting it.

The small piece of cushion in the settee back should be in the sit on part. It can be lifted out to allow a small 3 way chest fridge to sit directly on the nice firm and level bed base, or cool box of course.

Yes Navver, I tried swapping the seat cushions around but the back pice is wider (deeper) than the sitting piece and so they only fit that way around.  Not sure if there has been some kind of modification done or if that's the way this one was designed.

Plus: The seat back frame can be shortened as there is a connection at that end with another upright that slots in giving it the reduced width.

That sounds odd. I know every dandy was made specifically for the owner and bespoke alterations could be done. I see the flat steps on the mudguards are non standard as well so wonder if it was for someone disabled or short. Maybe even needing some medical equipment storing there.
