Hi guys well the dandy has been home on anglesey now for a few days.
WE towed it from preston with the c3 ecohdi 1400 and got 60 mpg towing, and 74.5 solo, so good match lol.
We found a few things wrong with it on puting it up the next day and spending a few hrs with it, wife spoted the gas pipe was cut Evil or Very Mad Mad Mad Mad .
the 12v was a bit diferant to the 12v system Mad i have normaly seen, so a bit of sorting there, and no leasure battery the system worked only when on 240 v and transfeered to 12v via a a verry large heavy light, Mad with batery in. Laughing

But we have changed gas pipe and the dandy goes on it'd maden trip with our grandson Liam, who wants to go to a CCC meet in Elsmeere shropshire on the 23rd for 5 nights, and if any one is going from dandy campers then great see you there.

I bet you still have lots of fun in it , our grandson came with us today to do a few thigs to the dandy he had never even seen 1 before only in pics that we had or our old ones.
He lives in elsmeerport we piced him up there today, and he is so excited and you should have seen his face as the dandy turned from a small trailer to a big folding liveing camping camper his words lol.

Congratulations, it's a shame it needed a few small jobs but at least it wasn't anything that would cost a small fortune.

Everyone should check the gas pipes when they buy a Dandy, it's cheap and simple to replace and gives peace of mind HIDEHI  DANDY 3 IS HOME 3498837457
