After four years of ownership we are going to be selling our Dandy Destiny. This is likely to be going on Ebay shortly but I wanted to ask the knowledgeable folks on here for advice.
Whilst I've not been on the forum for a while some of you may recall the unit itself. It's a high sided early 90's Destiny with built in fridge. A great unit all round with double skinned and one of those Carmen roller style heaters which we have never actually used. We had it serviced/electrics upgraded once we had it so the connections worked properly (the male/female coupling for hook up was reversed - no idea why). There is also a microwave 'built in'.
As I learned previously, like virtually every Dandy it's unique. I have begun to wonder if any are ever uniform. The unique selling point was the cavernous awning with it's fabled annexe - I think Tow Itch was suggesting disco's in the awning. Also the high sided Destiny in pale blue is rare too.
There are naturally a few downpoints after 4 years.
1. Needs a really good clean - easily fixed
2. The Velcro which attaches the skirts had been replaced but will need to be again by the buyer
3. The upright struts on one bedroom side have managed to get kinked. I guess we put it away poorly at some point? However, we have been away in it for the last two years, it's no harder nor easier to erect but it could be a potential weak point (? - advice on this would be welcome).
4. The internal light fitting got broken sometime ago. We've not replaced it - mainly cause it was really poor anyway and a single table lamp works far, far better.
We paid £1600 for it I think. My wife has made replacement covers for all the seats but these are utterly removable for the purist.
So my advice needs...
Point 3 in particular.
Should we consider selling the unit and the awning (with small bedroom chamber) separately.
Realistically what should we expect to get for it?
If anyone knows anyone looking, let them know to PM me.
