Did you find the old style Dandy 5 a bit claustrophobic without any windows in the PVC?
Depending on price it might be worth a starter while your still looking if you always get the money back?
I thought the reason you didn't want anything larger than a Discovery was so the missus got her garden back.
Is there much difference in the square footage of lowside and highside or does the highside become next weeks game plan and your overcoming the resistance in stages?
Couple of reasons not the high sided - it's high and I like to see over the back of things that I tow... Weight... Don't need a toilet or shower...
Wifey is now bellowing in my ear that it's not that she wants the front garden back, but so that I can park on the lawn. She's wrong. She definitely said she wanted a better view out of the front room window. The high sided wouldn't give us that. The old folding caravan was big and a bit unsightly- about 17ft long plus the tow frame.
Right - the pieces of wood...
The seller's Dad always felt a bit cagey/nervous about the beds resting on the two end struts/legs so he designed two long wooden support struts with hooks on the end that fitted into the top of the end struts adding lengthways support. Quite nifty. He's also made (I guess he could weld) spiked 'platforms' which the awning legs slotted over to stop sinkage.
