All the things you miss! I doubt I've ever looked at the 1981 brochure properly two things in there that navver pointed out now you're mentioning the photo showing a raised cupboard. I have a device to raise the cupboard but I was never sure if it was original or a user mod.
Made up as a frame of very approximately 1" by 1
wood it was a back piece and two sides the sides being hinged. It was affixed to the base by way of 4 holes in the base and three toilet door style bolts on the frame. The bolts extending into the holes. Other toilet furniture appeared to be utilised, as at the front what resembled the spindle on a toilet roll holder was used to support the middle of the upper cupboard.
The upper cupboard is centred by way of metal tags on the frame and a "C" clip above the bog roll spindle. Can't see any of the frame in the picture but the bog roll spindle is there.
Always thought that if original wood dowels in the frame would have been cheaper and as serviceable as the bolts.
The current middle shelf that hinges in and down is only one jump of imagination further on.
Is the Dandy for general camping or especially as an adjunct to the MGBGT for weekend long shows?
I don't think it was a MGB show but I've seen pictures of an event at Stoneleigh (home of the big Feb MG show) where there were either 4 or 5 Dandys parked up together. Older Dandys may be becoming de rigueur for classic cars.
Don't know if there was ever a Dandy stove other than the one fitted into a joint sink unit. Whatever is cheap is the first thought or are you looking for something period?
The standard sink and drainer is just short of 4' so fitting into the Dart giving about 10" to 12" in a Delta and barely 2' in a Designer/Discovery for a seat or box. Though the space on yours looks large for 10". [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
