I'm Hannes from Austria - please excuse, if my English is not really good ;-). I live in the Tyrol, be married and have 3 children. For a long time we spent our holidays in regular tents. But we were looking for more "luxury". Because we have a limited storage space in our vehicel hall we searched for a solution. A caravan would be too large, trailer tents "wastes too much time" for erecting and pulling down... Then we found "FOLDING CAMPERS"!
BUT folding campers are hardly unknown here in Austria. In Germany as well. Due of this I have imported a Raclet Super Quick Stop from England one year ago. But it is not a top-of- the-range folding camper. But it doesn't matter. It was a bargain and I used this purchase to see if it works to import and register such a camper here in Austria. But it was easier then I thought.
During the last year we have used the camper very often. But unfortunally the sun doesn't shine every day. So we were forced to pull down the camper (with the cotton canvas) sometimes when he was wet. I don't have to loose more words about such a situation.
We still love the handling/system of a folding camper. But now we think about buying a more "weather independent" solution... and we found the RIVA DANDY Campers.
The model DESTINY would be our favourite. But unfortunally it it very hard to get more information about this camper. No brochure,only less pictures from inside, no video on youtube, no price information...
So I had the idea to activate an account in your forum. Now I hope to get the information which I'm looking for ;-)
Now my most important questions:
- Why Dandy Campers are so rare at ebay, preloved, etc. in contrast to pennine, conway,...?
- Does anyone of you know a link to a video in which I can watch the erction and/or pulling down of the DESTINY?
- The DIMENSION offers "Power assisted beds and side walls". What does this mean?
- What will be the price for a new Riva Dandy DESTINY?
Thank you in advance for your support.
