Well john I must confess I'm impressed if not jealous at what you bought for £30.(repeat again it's not jealousy, it's not jealousy, it's not........)
I am curious though. I have the Designer and my old 4. The Designer I've never had step out or snake in any way though I would say I'm more conscious of it than the 4. I think the difference is just towing mass. The 4 the only thing I've had happen is a slight skip or chirp from the tyres under hard breaking as I've not got the rod brakes perfectly balanced. The Designer I've towed at illegal speeds and the 4 at highly illegal speeds. (see the early reports on Dandy's and the speeds they towed at "abroad") The 4 is just so stable and the Delta being closer to that, I can't help but think you would have got better value selling the stabiliser on to someone with a Designer.
It does look the dog's though and easily £30 worth of bling.
Did you get a new towball or just throughly degrease the old one and replace the cover?

All ready have a swan neck tow bar , the reason that I fitted it was insurance if somebody cut me up and under hard breaking and taking avoiding action I might need a bit of help, I have never had any problems towing a dandy whatsoever and agree it is totally stable, but 30 quid I could not refuse.

john i think i must insist if we are ever any where with you and there is bootsale within 50 miles of that area we MUST go shopping lol!
for 30 quid i agree towing a dandy is pretty easy and stable but for that money and the piece of mind should you need it is priceless

There is only one trick to it remove the rear bolt last, what you have to do is knock the bolt through using a piece of 10mm about 35mm long to retain the shock absorber that stays in place on hitch bar, the when you replace the new hitch you knock the bolt through displace the 10 mm job finished 10 mins there is video on the utube, no problem at all
