Great photos, wish I was good at sewing. I'll have to start practicing again.

Back to your original question Jane Very Happy

Extra roof bars at the ends
Fitted electrics
Quick release on the gas pipe
New curtains

The rest is original not perfect at 25 years old but we like it and its not bad.

The awning

Changed the curtain wires for dowel
Zip out ends, the best thing we have done

Things still to do

Insulation

Hi Jayne, as you know I make new curtains and cushions for my Dandy each year Laughing

I adapted a royal traveller awning to fit our dandy but now have a Dandy awning and also a Dandy sun canopy.

We added extra worktop - Shelf at the side of the sink and reinforced the top cupboard to take the weight.

Put metal straps to hold the dandy legs in place when its erected.

That's it up to now although we may fit electrics soon, we currently have an EHU that we just push up inside the dandy.

We have also changed all of the gas pipes and water ones too and had new tyres recently these are just for our own peace of mind really. Not really a modification just maintenance but we have made the gas pipe and water pipes longer. Oh and we have a little support leg that we put just under the door entrance to stop any movement.

We didnt do much as the person we got it off already had.

I have throws for the sofa's because we have a baby who spills things so they have to come out to wash.
New curtains

ours has zip out awning sides and a zip on the front to make a door
we have some shelves to put under the dandy beds and some home made skirts
A couple of small shelfs and one bigger one that fits over the window.
It has a well made top that fits over the sink and drainer
