We're still here too! Must offer apologies, however, that we haven't been checking in very often, or posting anything. Must make a conscious effort to change that as this is one of the friendliest and most useful of sites. One of the problems is that the Facebook page gets so much input and it's easy to ignore the site itself.
At risk of boring people, I'll give a personal update. We're situated in S.W. Scotland and for some years have owned a 2006 Designer and a small motor home (Romahome type). The idea was that the motor home was a second vehicle, great for two and three night trips and an occasional extra bedroom for visitors. The Dandy was for longer trips and for use with the occasional grandkid.
Last year the motor home left us, to be replaced with a Skoda Yeti, forcing us to use the Dandy more.
At the end of January this year we made a snowy trip to Lancashire to look after a CL site for three weeks and thinking it a good chance to do a bit of maintenance on the Designer, gathered a list of bits needed and went to see Ian, at Riva. We left Riva somewhat poorer but as the new owners of a 2006 Destiny. There followed two weeks use of the new rig in considerable comfort and convenience.
Winter Dandying isn't everyone's idea of fun but our advice is to grit your teeth and give it a go. We bet you'll enjoy it far more than you think!
