Have you collected it yet? If you need any help just give me a shout and I'm happy to pop over
We have picked it up thanks, but we have realised that the folder with all the info in, including step by step instructions, was folded up inside it!
We may be shouting for help when we try and put it up though!!!! Thank you
Thanks everyone else for all the congratulations, we are really excited. The boys have helped us name her Rosie and our first adventure is booked for February
The video showing erection is here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Though the rear entry (o'er missus) Dandys look different erection is just the same.
One key bit is at 1.28 and is the use of looped cord. Those 4 bits of string are the key to erecting. More than one dandy has been sold because the former owners didn't know about this and were killing themselves trying to erect the roof.
If there is anything more than the slightest breeze erect the Dandy with the hitch end into the wind. Once erected the Dandy can easily be turned round to face another direction. I'm uncertain what is in the other end of a Dandy roof on a modern Dandy but on my old Green Un it's a length of electric conduit. It is all too easy for a breeze to take hold of the loose end of the roof. This could be lethal there is easily enough energy to heavily dent a car, break a collar bone or fracture a skull.
Have a good session reading all the hints and tips and feel free to ask about anything you don't understand.
