Hello All

We have recently bought a Dandy Destiny (low) having used a dandy dart for many years. The transit cover is not in good shape, we have got prices for a replacement, they are about £200. I want to investigate making one myself, I don't think it would be that difficult.

Can anyone tell me what the specification of the PVC is that is used on dandy trailer tents.

It is flexible PVC sheet, how thick is it? or is it defined by gsm (grams per square metre).

Is there a good stockist of this sheet that anyone can recommend

Bye Ed

Try the suppliers of bouncy castle material there are various thicknesses and colours that they could supply and maybe could knock up a cover to your specifications.
