Well the first trip was great in Hidehi Dandy Empty Well the first trip was great in Hidehi Dandy

Post by HIDEHI on Sat 15 Sep 2012, 10:50 am

Well we went away for a few days in our dandy discovery, and 2 of our grandsons came with us.
Towing Hidehi with our Citroen C3 Eco 1.4 hdi was easy towing and returned 61mpg wow that is great lol.
The car does 70 + mpg solo.
We sold our caravan a few months ago and had a c4 to tow that, solo mpg 58 to 60. Towing the light weight caravan under 1000 kg loaded, at 30 mpg.

And you know the dandy was verry comfertable and extreemly more enjoyable to live in for them few nights.
We have the origanal Dandy brown and white matching the dandy, and found that if we left the front poles down a bit the roof slid quite easily over and then we raised them into final position.
Our grandsons enjoyed there dandy camping, the eldest 1 even done an essay at school on his dandy hols with Nain and Taid wish i had a coppy Well the first trip was great in Hidehi Dandy 496639318 Well the first trip was great in Hidehi Dandy 40847162 Well the first trip was great in Hidehi Dandy 184121345 Well the first trip was great in Hidehi Dandy 184121345 Well the first trip was great in Hidehi Dandy 184121345

Pleased to hear you enjoyed your first outing in your new dandy,not surprised though as i think you said it wasn't your first dandy,we always have the front legs lowered until the roof is on and we have zip out sides.

Hidehi is the same as Monty, but with the cooker and sink the other way round. Glad you had a great time, and looking forward to meeting you and Hidehi. Laughing

We changed our suspension for the same reason but we didn't upgrade, we found that new 500kg suspension raised it enough to tow level ........ our suspension was really low Shocked It's easier to change than you would think.
