I think we have been a bit too adventurous, we bought a Dandy Destiny 2007 last year, we have still not been anywhere in it. We have put it up and down 3 times and we are still not getting any better at it.
We have watched videos online, not of this particular model, we have read all the paperwork but to no avail. What are we doing wrong or is it that we are a little too old for this Dandy because it is heavy. I can't help with the roof at all and we always seem to end up in a mess.
We are both 60ish, please help if there are any tips or guidelines we will try them. We are hoping to get away this bank holiday but to be honest I don't think I feel ready to put the Dandy up then down with an audience lol.

If its a 2007 its one of the later models and should have gas struts on each of the bed ends?
To help with the roof, a good old broom can come in handy.
There is a knack to putting it up, and once mastered its really not too bad, I can put up ours on my own, but it does take two off us to pull it down.

Thank you for your message, I think it was your video that we watched. I will go on link to see if that helps. If we can't do it after a few morw times I think we will have to admit defeat, maybe we should have got something smaller because it does seem very heavy.
Thank you again

I can't seem to find any video's etc for this model, it has the toilet/sink area. Is there anywhere I could find this please. We seem to end up with the roof caving in, it may have helped if I was a foot taller lol.
