The Green are classics and they do look pretty smart in the flesh. Laughing

Shaun

Sorry just my cynical nature. Go for it. The faults listed are pennys and ha'pennys. just check it over.
If it's a long way ask the hard questions on the phone. It's no point going 200 miles to find out the floor is soggy or the suspensions ragged.
Actually a good body and PVC on ragged suspension would still be OK for £180.
Check through the lists for the questions to ask, best of luck.

Kevin.

I asked the hard questions drove from Manchester to Weston Super Mare and the bastards had lied to me.
In case of a repeat performance take bottle of petrol with you.
I'm not jaundiced honest.(ahem)

Its quite harsh to pour petrol over and set it alight if they are lying surely? or is that not what the petrol is for?

The Green has a non genuine kitchen.
Have they painted the sides or is it covered in god knows what.
If the sides are painted why? It was originally phenolic coated ply if painted over it's probably got filler as well.
Though if you're handy the proper stuff is available (and NO ONE would (could) get picky over Phoenix's standard plywood job)
All depends what price it goes to.
The green is a 5 so more space without the awning. The awning is smaller but easier to put up.
The brown is a fixed price and the awning is larger as its a post bat wing brown. (Browns started off like Greens and Oranges then went to full width awnings)

Thank you Kevin,

We did think long and hard about it, but are pleased with what we've got.
Hopefully you will see her in the flesh one day!

Shaun,

The green ones are good, retro ask Cazz.

Not expecting much for 180

Why? if it's not much then your probably into £250 plus inc fuel.
It's not worth buying tat a few pounds more for the best you can afford is always good, problems are always expensive.
Price however is no indication of quality.
I think Cazz was very pleased with her purchase and people have paid a lot more for rubbish.
I missed that the sides were breaking up on mine.
Be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

Although I have read all your great comments on here I have never even seen a dandy so not really sure what to look for. It is however a learning curve, just wish someone lived near Bristol.

Kevin, You read my mind. If we were still looking for one, we would be arranging a viewing.
