Due to ill health it has stood for 5 years after a complete refit to the interior, rewired for 12 and 240 volts with a distribution unit and charger. Blue in colour with awning ( just the roof) all the camping stuff included toilet tent etc. Battery now scrapped and Tyres need replacing before its on the road plus the under floor heater will need a service.

Pets welcome and free coffee, may even exchange for a Springer spaniel pup. Or an Aston Martin.
Sorry to hear you are no longer fit to use your Dandy. Now I'm not looking to buy a Destiny so it doesn't affect me either way but if you have another look at your piece and become a bit more descriptive you may drum up a bit more interest.
Though you say Blue in colour that covers about 18 years and it is only your mention of the toilet tent that causes me to assume that it is the older light blue Destiny as the dark blue ones have toilets fitted. You say you don't know it's age but it's type might be more important, Highside or Lowside? The Lowside like the original 6 or the Highside raised to allow the fitting of a fridge.

Does this mean it is just a sun canopy or do you mean something else entirely?
It's been stood for five years; outside, outside under a cover, or in a garage? I could be expecting very different things depending on the answer to that. It was all sound when last folded! OK I get the idea that your not fit to camp any more but a relative, friend or even slipping a few quid to someone may well help the sale. It removes the chance of last minute embarrassment. In five years anything form a family of mice to just a forgotten potato could have changed the interior drastically. A quick wipe down won't hurt and photos can be taken. If your not a tech guru we'd help you with moving photos from phone or camera to this site. Even if your Designer was bog standard photos still sell but yours has been re upholstered. Remember your original upholstery now look at these pictures of a late model Designer with the later upholstery that I have also seen retro fitted. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
You see how the change of upholstery can increase the desirability?
As for you mentioning the tyres and heater fair enough but I think it's only wise that someone would budget for new tyres and a heater service on purchase.
It's not been my intention to embarrass you but to help. There may be several hundred pounds difference in price between the different possibilities of Destiny you have and also a few hundred depending on how it is advertised. Conversely if a few hundred is not the end of the world and you can't be bothered I'm not here to get on your back.
One last thought I don't know why you are unfit to Dandy but they can be a bit of a weight to erect. If that was any part of the problem you are aware of the use of gas struts to ease erection?
