After years of running this site, I have now gone to The Dark Side. This web site will continue, but I really need someone new to take over.

Hello, yesterday we collected our first Dandy, it's a 1994 ish Designer with original awning, the seller was the original purchaser having bought it new from Dandy.

It appears to have been cared for, they continued to use it up until last weekend when they sadly decided it was now too much for them to manage due to their age making it more of a struggle than they felt able to manage which is a damn shame as they really did seem to love this Designer.

Well, our plans for the Dandy are to give it a good clean and possibly a service to get to know it and, hopefully next weekend, we will take our two youngest kids away for a couple of nights for the first of hopefully another 23 years of using it.

I noticed when I got home that the grill for the floor heater (under the trailer) was bent upwards which i suspect has been that way for a while probably due to the very low clearance when it tows so i'm going to have to take care of that. I've checked the height of the towing hitch on level ground and it's still at 345 mm to the centre so I guess I will have to adapt the hitch with a spacer block to try and raise the nose to get somewhere nearer my towing hook unless anyone can suggest anything else more suitable please?

Anyway, I'm off to browse the forum now, hopefully our paths will cross on a camp site sometime, until then good health and happy camping! :)
