2007 Destiny on Preloved. No photos!
Says it's the same colours as the latest Dandys and for full spec look on Riva Dandy Sales website?
If they didn't know before don't quite know how they could go on Rivas site and not realise their's was one of the last made.
With PVC awning not the Acrylic one.
It's in Doncaster.

Everything And More

A Designer on eBay has had virtually all possible mods.

750Kg suspension
Skirts both sides
Awning zipped to allow side removal
Upholstery re covered.
240V and 12v installed
Gas struts

1995 Designer with the perspex double glazed windows. Fully winterised with Insulated insides and gas underfloor heater.


If I was being picky to the nth degree. The 12v is by transformer only, no leisure battery.
Was the photo showing the Dandy hitched taken pre or post 1998? The tail end still looks to be down?

If I was after a top of the range nothing needs doing to it Designer I'd be asking about if he had a buy it now price in mind. If you live at the other end of the country and want this checking out I'd have a look. Please PM me. N.B. Current members only.

If you managed to buy a 1995 Designer for £800 and put all these mods on you would still end up spending over £2,000 in total.

Some of the photos as was? some after spending at Riva?
See
We recently spent £900 (at Riva Dandy Sales) on new foam and upholstery, new ply bed bases, servicing, and full check over ready for this year’s holidays. But due to illness that was not possible. (Early Photos show old upholstery I have added new photos showing new upholstery.)

Jesus that convector heaters big. Photo 7.

white delta - size ?

Post by flinstone on Wed 05 Sep 2012, 10:28 am

Hi, we are new to dandys, we have been looking for a delta for a while.
We are a "bit wrinkley" and after visiting wigan have found we can set up a dandy without any problem.

We saw the white one and have been puzzling over the measurements.
It appears to be on a dart body (size given as 157cm overall width).
Are we being dim ? Confused!! Any advice would be great !
Thanks

The only info i have is the dart 160cm and the delta 183 cm the white one one looks like the smaller dart and the delta does feel a fair bit roomier.

white delta / dart ?

Post by flinstone on Wed 05 Sep 2012, 6:22 pm

Thanks mike, think we will give this one a miss, it's not for us.
Does sound like a dart not a delta!
We will carry on searching, will get one eventually Smile

No No No No Was it this one you were looking at? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Despite the measurement given that is a Delta.
Roughly the tub width is Dart 4' Delta 4' 10" Designer/Discovery 5'10"
Now just to be awkward that is the width for the pre 1990 Dandys that didn't have names. Post 1990 the Dandys got names sizing went metric cm's and sizes increased by mm's.
The smaller Dandys Dart and Delta also have a size quoted for the full width including the outboard wheels.
As Mike said
The only info i have is the dart 160cm and the delta 183 cm the white one one looks like the smaller dart and the delta does feel a fair bit roomier.

Now just to confuse Darts and Deltas were made with inboard wheels to special order, like a Designer. So you can have a Delta with a width of only 157/160 cm.
That one on eBay is a Delta you can tell by the space either side of the kitchen (though strangely many Deltas seem to have right handed cookers. {see "The Mystery Of The Right Handed Cookers" Faber and Faber 1/ 3d}

See: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

All you lose on a normal Delta is the space for the wheel arches.

the penny drops !!

Post by flinstone on Thu 06 Sep 2012, 9:18 am

Thank you tow itch , we finally got it , the penny dropped!
The different variations on models can be confusing to a newbie - that's our excuse anyway !
After big discussions we decided that we would prefer the delta with outboard wheels.
Thanks for your help, will keep posted!! Smile

Was it anyone who uses here? £2,752.52

It still may well be very good value. I do hope whoever bought it went to look at it. Spoil it for everyone if it's back on eBay next week.

Yes it was me and Nigel, I know it sounds a lot to pay, but we did go and view it on Saturday and we think it's worth it as its a really lovely unit. It's got upgraded 750kg suspension, both bed skirts, underfloor heating, proper Dandy awning with zip out sides and a kitchen unit, everything you could ask for really.

I am sorry to be selling Minnie, but this was too good an opportunity to miss!

Congratulations.

I'm shocked that you managed to contain yourselves and weren't shouting the house down as soon as you won it.
Insurance shopping first thing tomorrow morning?



All the bells and whistles on this.
The underfloor heater will be especially welcome if your doing your re-enactment stuff and camping in the middle of a field with no facilities.

Hi, followed your link, it has gone !
It only had about 150 hits, can't have been on more than a couple of hours!
Think I will have to get the other half to sit in the car with the engine running if deltas go that fast !!
We will get one eventually!

Ah the joys of eBay.
Someone made a cash offer. Either that or the vendor realised it was worse than he thought so honourably withdrew the item. Ahem!
No bids were listed though, you did get a bid in?
I'd have welcomed you with at least a brew on your trip to sunny Bolton but what were you going to do with another 6? Hark me asking with 3 Dandys.
