Hi all. I just bought a dandy today and hopefully will get to set it up tomorrow. I did see enough though to ensure everything is working and intact and in pretty good condition.
I reckon it's a 1980's Dart 4 berth model as it has the brown/orange upholstery and wooden faced sides. It has a brown awning with it that is probably an original made for it and has its original Dandy cover.
So hopefully I'll make the most of it and be able to set it up without too much difficulty. I'll put up a picture or two when I get the chance.

regards
Mark

Got the Dandy up without too much difficulty and it's great. Everything works and is intact, no rips in pvc or seats etc. It looks to have had very recent gas fittings renewed too and all lights are working on trailer. The cooker and sink unit is in fine fettle too. The only thing it could do with is new velcro fastenings as they're pretty much shot.

I was going to buy a cheap caravan and just saw this advertised by chance. The design is great, so simple to erect and put away, yet sturdy and comfortable and it's so simple to pull compared to a caravan. Best thing is I ended up getting it for £300, which I can now see was a much bigger bargain than I thought. :)

Pics to follow.

Looks like you got a bargain, I'm buying one in the spring, I've done my research and looking at getting a dart, probably might spend 2 grand on one gonna take it to France next year.
