He might be a bit mistaken about it being insulated and the awning is non standard. Brown and cream but if anything other than a shed it should be worth it.
Last year I sold my Dandy Destiny. We used it for a few weekends and a couple of full weeks, but it was not really my Wife's idea of accommodation. I ended up taking it on weekends with my 6 year old son and it was just too big for the two of us.
I did two trips back in my old Vango tunnel tent and found I was missing the comforts (ie being above the wet ground and being able to stand up....) of a Dandy.
I started looking for an old Dandy 4 with recessed wheels at 4'2" wide so it would not have to stay in the garage and could be pushed out the side door (slight door enlargement required first) but they do not come up very often.
This one does have recessed wheels, but it seems that the newer 4 berth, even with recessed wheels is 5'3"....quite a bit wider and therefore has to stay in the garage not through the side door.
We put it up before concluding the sale and it does need some TLC as the ad suggests. It could be used as is, but would be nicer with some work. Not really sure how you tell if it is winterised. There was no heater, so I suspect not. Given my use will be May to September I don't see that as a problem. I was never comfortable leaving the heater on with my Destiny. I just used to put it on to warm up a bit before breakfast.
The awning is not the Dandy one. We did not put that up, so I will have to see how it goes.
