In all honesty I think the destiny with loo compartment is okay for two people and small children but when 4 adults sat in there it felt cramped. If your all living in there instead of like us visiting for a quick brew I would want an awning.

Have to agree although the same basic size as our 6 all the extra built in bits tend to take up a lot of space.

so excited now. I start work at midnight, and finishing around 5am. Then off to Bristol to view/buy the Destiny. 282 mile round trip. I just hope it's as good as the guy says it is. Anything I should beware of with the 2006 Destiny that anyone knows of? Taking my Father In Law to check all mechanical side of things, but he is very sceptical over the whole idea.
One thing I forgot to ask him on the phone was if he has all the paperwork. He does sound very legit though, so he hopefully will have everything in order. Where is the serial number stamped on the later dandys? Not that I'm at all suspicious lol.
I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes.

Thanks Mike, just waiting for the buyer to contact me, he only lives about 45 miles away so not too far.

The wife and I have got a Dart sorted out, has a Sunncamp porch awning but no mains hook-up, has laminate flooring and recently new tyres and rear light units (bigger) with fog on one side reversing on other.

There may be something inside the lid of the locker on the front of the Dandy, I can't recall properly on the 2004 model that I saw but think there is also a plate on the A frame too. I should think that anything will be purely cosmetic but for what you are paying I would take a good look and ask for a demonstration of everything working too.

good luck with your possible purchase
serial no is on A frame near hitch there is a riveted plate
we have a 2006 designer and all I would say is after owning a 1995 delta they definitely don't seem to be as well made so I would suggest after checking all the obvious things like floor suspension wheel arches PVC etc we found things like the cupboard clips and seat hinges needed replacing/repairing not big jobs I know and fairly cheap to do but something to bear in mind also we found the newer model to have a lot more rub points than the older models on the beds and on the wings so I'd check for signs of wear there and it go's without saying make sure your roof is OK as almost everything else can be sorted but a winterised roof that's got damage I personally would run a mile from

check out the thread on buying a used a dandy I'm sure that will be helpful too

Looks like a bargain for the new owner and at least you got a sensible price.

If its any thing like this i found it was a nice outfit,the owners had room in the awning to sit and eat,just gives you the chance to escape from the dandy.

Copied from the yahoo site

We have reluctantly decided that as we both have bad backs our much loved 1999
Destiny and full awning will have to go and be replaced with a caravan. She is
pale blue and white, fully winterised, had a new fridge late 2010, and in
October 2010 went to Ian at Riva, was fully serviced and had anything done which
was needed, including a new floor and all elastics replaced. She is in very good
condition for 12 years old and we are looking for £2,500. Anyone interested?

Another one from the yahoo site

We have for sale a Dandy Delta, 4 berth. Need to sell as new car does not have a
towbar, and it's very expensive to get one fitted! I'm putting the feelers out
to see if there's any interest. We live on the south coast, in St Leonards on
Sea, East Sussex. He's fine and dandy, except when folding him up the
penultimate time used, one of the roof poles went through the inner skin only,
at just above floor height on the left hand side of the door as you are going
out. It's not major, just needs a bit of time spend on it. We have the awning,
which we used once, and to be honest it's a waste of time, very heavy. There is
an underfloor heater that works exceptionally well. Electric sockets, spare
curtains, covers for the seat cushions. The water pump will need re-wiring,
we've never used it. Two ring gas cooker complete with grill. He hasn't been
used for some time, early 2011, so we would have to check him out. If anybody
is interested, I guess we're looking for £1000 plus. If you think this is a
ridiculous price and it should be higher or even lower, please let me know.
Thanks

Looks like a discoverywith awning

For the benefit of newcomers a Discovery is the same size as a designer but a bench seat on the left instead of two seats and a table.

This is a re list from Dec on ebay and it was around other sales site before then can't remember if it was Gumtree or Preloved.

Not to say anything negative about it just it's been around for a while. So be careful and have a good look though we don't know if anyones looked at it and rejected it or if it's been looked at, at all.
